Obviously Thor's. The area damaged was much larger.

@webinyoureye11: Are you talking about which one I prefer or which one did the most damage/caused the most destruction?

Honestly about even. Thor does more damage, but he is connected to the ground, as is the person he is hitting, meaning that conduction of the force is much greater. Superman and Zod hit each-other in midair just above the skyscraper, meaning that force needed to be transmitted through the air to cause such damage to the skyscraper. The reason why I put them as being more or less equal is that the writers probably intended by strikes to be very powerful strikes which cause extensive environmental damage with on accurate emphasis on the accurate scale.

I'm wondering which of these is more powerful, and why you think Superman's is.

@webinyoureye11: Well think about the strength of Supes and Zod and think of them smashing into that building (loads of force and power). Thats why I prefer it to Thors. Also the destruction of the building is pretty cool.

@tj849: well a weakened Thor was able to match hulks strength for a little while, the same hulk that stopped the leviathans momentum with 1 arm. And people have debated the boulder throw vs the train throw in MoS, so I think that Thor is at least comparable to MoS superman strength level. More so than BvS supes at least

Superman zod clearly created more than 4000+ psi upto 20+ meters from the point of the collision.

Shattering ground which is mostly made of soils isn't impressive.

@omriamar: but didn't they both destroy concrete (possibly something else for Thor, but still something man made) and Thor looks to have made a bigger area of effect compared to superman?

@nightmare52: @webinyoureye11: considering it's a college campus by the looks of it. It would imply it would be commercial concrete. Though I'm no expert in construction engineering.

@americanspeeddemon: that's what I thought. But the MCU apparently needs a scientific seal of approval and triple verification checks to establish a feat as good

Feat from MoS is better because the force used to create the crater was just the pressure wave/shock wave of the air because they're not even connected to the skyscraper.

Thor was in full contact and what the ground he shattered looked like marble tiles to me which if you ask me is pretty weak structurally, at least not as strong as RC buildings.

Even if we take it is completely made of concrete slabs.

Concrete used for building is 5-6 times stronger than pavement concrete.

Think of the shock waves caused if the concrete and Thor were coming together at the same speed.

@nightmare52: TBF we're comparing Thor to Supes not to Superman and Zod which cuts the feat in half, Thor's was a lot more casual and his crater appeared to be much wider. Accounting for all that they appear to be about even with Thor possibly having an ever so slight edge.

pulverising/shattering the steel rebar reinforced poured skyscraper concrete is vastly superior to cracking 3" paving stones.

Thor swung his arm.

Superman and Zod crashed into each while flying at a high rate of speed.

It seems to me that it took a lot more effort for Clark and Zod to do their thing, and the results are at best nearly even.

Still they shattered something that is 5-6 times stronger .

Thor's was a lot more casual and his crater appeared to be much wider.

Based his face expression doesn't look like it's casual.

Accounting for all that they appear to be about even with Thor possibly having an ever so slight edge.

U can say that if they shattered same level of concrete.

But they shattered something 5-6 times stronger what he did which makes a massive difference.

@risingbean: results are nowhere near the same. thor cracked paving stones and broke glass superman and zod pulverized steel reinforced concrete.

paving stones are 3 inches thick with no steel frame within. cracking them is much easier.

@nightmare52: Thor's Crater was about twice as big than the combined crater so when accounting for all that Supes only broke a quarter of what Thor broke. Which makes Supes feat 1.25x Thor's but Superman needed 50 feet bullrush to achieve said feat while Thor did his from standing which is why I said his is more casual.

Thor caused much more damage

Zod and Superman were both speeding towards each other meaning it wasn't all down to Supes striking he also had a distance to fly to gain momentum, whereas Thor's was all him as they were stationary makes it more impressive to me.

If Supeman did it from a stationary point and Zod wasn't moving aswell then I'd say about even.

no it isn't .

It's pretty much same or little higher.

so when accounting for all that Supes only broke a quarter of what Thor broke. Which makes Supes feat 1.25x Thor's but Superman needed 50 feet bullrush to achieve said feat while Thor did his from standing which is why I said his is more casual.

Assumption .

Let me rephrase Thor's strike took about 1 second to prepare while Supes took about 5.

@tj849: Well, Zod and supes made the damage combined. Thor did his damage by himself. He did 50% more.

I just saw that Thorthunder mentioned the same.

But they shattered something 5-6 times stronger which u don't even understand.

Thor shattered something that can withstand 351.5348 kg/cm2 (max) but they shattered something that can with 1406.1392 kg/cm2.

FYI Thor also took around 3-4 seconds after attacking with lightning.

Yeah this is closer to the AoE of Thor's attack. I think based solely off the scans OP showed Thor looks stronger, but if you take all of Supes's feats he should be stronger than Thor by a very good margin. Not to underestimate Thor, I know he gets a lot of shit on this site, but I think Superman could definitely replicate the feat OP showed if he tried.
