Default Re: Can anyone compare Thor to Shazam (Captain Marvel) or Superman?

Oddly, I always felt like Stan Lee had Superman in mind when he created Thor, yet the result was a character more akin to DC's Captain Marvel (mystical/magical based power set)

An appraisal of each DC character power set to Thor's reveals, IMHO, a MAJOR advantage for DC's two powerhouses in terms of speed, especially Superman. Of course, Captain Marvel has no demonstrated weakness to magic or Kryptonite.

Loki is obviously the more powerful wielder of magic while Black Adam, IMHO, is a greater threat to Captain Marvel than Loki ever was to Thor, save for the times he was able to get his hands on the Destroyer armor. Lex Luthor would be an interesting match for Loki. I give the advantage to Loki. Magic triumphs over technology.

They all are similar in terms of their courageousness and innate nobility. Personally, I would like to see Thor lose Don Blake altogether, although, the way Fraction is writing Thor, that doesn't appear to be happening anytime soon.

Y'know, Odin seems to be a real jerk these days. I mean there has been friction between Thor and Odin in the past, but nothing like what Fraction is portraying Odin to be these days.

To me, Superman's dad was always a little more compassionate than Thor's.
