See... here is where all "this guy vs. that guy" debates get dumb. There is NO REAL CONTINUITY in comic books... and no set power levels. The Hulk, Thor, Superman, Batman, Daredevil, Spidey, Wolverine, Cyclops, and every other superhero ever have all had various power levels because they change in order to tell different stories. For example... you can't use the Superman who is invulnerable to physical harm in the "Death of Superman" storyline. You can't have the Cyclops who's blasts "blow a hole through a mountain" get beat by Wolverine. You can't have Batman beat Superman if Superman is going full out and not giving Bats a second to even think about moving before he's dead. Power levels do not exist in comics. They are altered in order to tell different kinds of stories. Characters are great because of who they are and what they represent, not because they are a 9 on the power scale or a "class 100" or whatever that means.
