    Since Thor has fought both heroes in two crossovers DC vs. Marvel and JLA/Avengers, is it possible to compare him to both heroes.

    Compare Thor to Superman and Shazam (Captain Marvel).
    Compare Donald Blake to Clark Kent and Billy Batson.
    Compare Valhalla and Asguard to Kryton.
    Compare Thor's strengths and weaknesses to both Superman and Captain Marvel.
    Compare Loki to Black-Adam and Lex Luthor.
    Compare Jane to Lois Lane.

    99% of that information is available on Wikipedia... do a little leg work. You might even find out other cool info reading the articles.

    Everybody knows that Spider-Man is the Marvel Counterpart of Superman.

    Not entirerly sure what you want here but here goes:

    One's a god, One's a really strong guy, the last is half of each.

    Crippled Doctor, Reporter, 10 year old

    One's a legendary city, one's a couple rocks floating in space where a planet used to be.

    As always, they very depending on writer. Otherwise, they're all strong but with strong morals. threaten to shoot an innocent kid and they'll back down till they can figure out how to stop you.

    Jealous, Angry, a bit of both...

    Paramedic, reporter/smartass who can't spell.

    They both have dashing red capes, and 90's Supes had the Super Mullet like Thor's Golden Locks.

    Popularity wise, yes. Except Thor would be on more equal terms with the Man of Steel. He'd probably beat him, given Supes' vulnerability to magic.

    They've both knocked each other out.

    See JLA/Avengers #1 for Thor getting the drop on Superman.

    See JLA/Avengers #2 for Superman turning it up to 11.

    Superman, while given the ultimate victory (in that series), gave a nod to Thor as "quite possibly the greatest opponent" he's ever defeated. Superman was so drained by this battle that he couldn't fight back against Iron Man, Wonder Man, the Vision, Hercules and She-Hulk. Thank God Aquaman showed up with sea monsters... :lol 

    And as far as comparing Thor to Captain Marvel, Thor correctly noted in the DC vs Marvel crossover that as the God of Thunder, Thor controls Billy Batson's abilities to shift forms...

    Case in point- Thor is badass.

    Now, comparing Superman to the Sentry is another situation entirely, one that no one should ever begin to touch on because it leads to stupidity and ridiculousness- mostly on Marvel's part.

    Compare Thor to Superman and Shazam (Captain Marvel).
    Thor controls lightning and Captain Marvel uses it to change?

    Compare Donald Blake to Clark Kent and Billy Batson.
    All 3 are lame because they don't carry the marvel alliteration like Peter Parker, Bruce Banner, Reed Richards, and Paste Pot Pete.

    Compare Valhalla and Asguard to Kryton.
    OA says they can all suck it.

    Compare Thor's strengths and weaknesses to both Superman and Captain Marvel.
    Thor's power comes from his magical golden locks of hair, Superman's came from his mullet and overpowered him which is why he cut it off.

    Compare Loki to Black-Adam and Lex Luthor.
    Loki wears a big goddamn horned helmet and Lex is bald. Black Adam has army hair

    Compare Jane to Lois Lane.
    Jane likes men in loincloths and Lois like capes.
