One could argue that Thor and Superman have almost identical powers in that both have super strength and endurance. Thor doesn’t exactly fly on his own, but he can go airborne with some help from his hammer. Thor doesn’t have heat vision per se, but that lightning he directs can certainly burn someone.

Thor and Superman have quite a bit in common. Besides both being superheroes, albeit for the opposing sides of Marvel Cinematic Universe and DC Universe, they also have god-like powers. Thor is literally a god, and Superman, while not a deity, sometimes gets framed as one in his movies.

As it happens, Thor and Superman share a power, with the difference being that Superman uses it fairly often, while we never see Thor doing it. It’s the power to pack a heck of an exhale.

Thor deflects the blast of the gun with his own “great breath,” which is super breath to the folks at DC, except it doesn’t have freezing properties. This was the only time Thor actually used this, and it may have been one of those “convenient” powers that stops a particular situation and then is never used again.

For all his potential as a character, Thor got off to a somewhat rocky start at the box office, says The Numbers. His first movie in 2011 made $181 million, which seems like pocket change to Marvel now, but back then that was considered a solid if not spectacular start. The second
