I haven't seen some good striking feats for Thor. Pretty much he relied on weapons. I'd say close to Thor

This is the kind of crap I'm talking about, why do people continue to try and place Aquaman anywhere near Cap's tier when Aquaman is very clearly superior to Cap.

It's just the absurd amount of MCU bias on this board. That or trolling really.

Spider-Man/Luke Cage - Thor.

In terms of striking power comparisons, I think he is closer to cap, and that is solely because Thor's striking power is just somewhere else.

@thatoneguy2958: Aquaman dropped Steppenwolf with a punch, he’s striking is definitely better than Cap’s.

Just like in the Superman thread what you have to consider is that in order to be closer to Thor he would have to have more than 50% of Thor's striking power. He doesn't so he's automatically closer to Steve.

However he is still far and away superior to Steve.

There’s an absurd jump from Cap to Thor.

Not to mention, even comparing aquaman to cap is a gigantic lowball.

He's superior to Steve and inferior to Thor. I'd place him around Ironman's level.

Thor's best striking feat without a weapon is flipping the hulk midair without negating his momentum. It's nothing special

Not really, he'd have to be in the upper 50% of (Ts - Cs) where Ts = Thor's striking and Cs = Cap's striking. Regardless, I agree that he's closer to Cap since the gap between him and Thor is astronomical.

Hes closer to Thor without lightning. With lightning amped punches, hes closer to Steve.

Yeah let's just ignore the fact that he hurt HULK, ignore the fact it made a huge shockwave, ignore the fact that the shockwave destroyed the area around them.

I feel like he is pretty squarely in the middle of them honestly. It's such a huge gulf between Cap and Thor that it's hard to say.

After Superman's attacks softened him up.

He’s closer to Thor, anyone saying he’s closer to Steve is a wanker if you honestly think he’s close to a multiverse buster in striking strength.

He's closer, maybe even in terms of strength with Thor. Could Cap send Steppenwolf flying in the air with a single punch, or push a submarine against it's weight and water pressure? The answer is obvious.

@strike3: you’re reaching

Nope. Aquaman couldn't even land the punch or trident with Wonder Woman helping vs Steppenwolf. Where he easily shook off other attacks, Superman's punches clearly staggered, and slowed him down. He looked helpless on the ground, then is hit with heat vision and gets slammed into a wall by Superman. Aquaman's punch sending staggered Steppen a few feet < Superman's punch sending fresh Steppen a good distance.

@strike3: that’s all assumptions until proven otherwise. And I’m not comparing Aquaman’s punch with Superman, I’m saying Cap wouldn’t be able to accomplish the same thing.

Aquaman is closer to Thor in striking power. Thor with no weapon does not have great striking feats. Couple dozen tons at best.

What MCU bias ? Most people on the battle boards agree DCEU >>>> MCU so not sure what you're talking about.

Also this is a place of feats.

@destinyman75: Thor has no striking feats ( no weapon ) to place him wayyy above Aquaman. He is way above but with the hammer. With no hammer still above, not way above imo. No hammer aqua is closer to Thor, hammer and closer to steve

It depends on what you're comparing. If we're just looking at punches, then Arthur is closer to Thor. If we account for weapons or elemental powers, then Arthur starts becoming closer to Cap. Thor's uru weapons amped with lightning simply outclass Arthur's trident amped with water by too a huge margin.

Arthur with his trident and water has pretty much equal striking to Thor with Hulk's giant warhammer.

Aquaman is tremendously superior to Steve... but also tremendously inferior to Thor. The gap between Thor and Steve is clearly much MUCH greater than anyone is accounting for here. He’s closer to Steve, but has waaaaaaaaay greater striking power than Steve anyway.

@jayc1324: he hurt hulk sure, no one is denying that, the Shockwave was just from the lightning, if it wasn't, it would have at least launched them back
