    I miss those days man!
    Thor had some killer slobber knockers back then!
    Seems like after Thor lost to Superman in the crossover he just lost his grandeur!
    Like Marvel was upset about the fan backlash and was like Think Thor is unbeatable? well we'll show you he's not!
    And then butt kicking after butt kicking came one after the other!
    I can't be the only one who made this connection.

    Anyways sorry for getting off track but man I miss those Jurgens days and seeing Thor kick royal behind!

I would say it has nothing to do with Thor vs. Superman, and more to do with the sentiment at the time to scale down Thor. This was during the era where Thor was thought to be vulnerable to bullets, and when many of his potent abilities were said to be situational (e.g. he could only summon portals when the stars aligned). This was probably done to make Thor much more of a team character than a solo character.

To be fair to Marvel, Thor is probably more powerful now (without the Odin-Power) than he was back then.

I was honestly not a big fan of Jurgens, but I understand why some people were. To me he was did what DeFalco did, only less effectively. His run basically fell apart when he distanced his stories from the Lee/Kirby stuff.
