Nothing to be underestimated about, but Thing is pretty tough cookies. IMO there is no reason why Thor or Superman could shot Thing. It has never happen consistently before.
From what it's worth, Thing has a good record aganist Nerve strikes
Thing spanks Moon Dragon an ignores some nerve strikes
Thing suriving a building so heavy that ClassiC Sassy,who was stronger than Thing,barely can lift it.
Bottom line is that Buildings don't bother the thing.

Or whirpools in mutiples current
he surived Dragon Man's flame before
and the heat and pressure of a core, and the expulsion of a planet. Cover over two hundred miles, and crap.
Here Thing after willing himself out of the lighting torture, he manages to resist beatings from Mole Man's subterranean men to Human Torch. Once he got to Human Torch, Human Torch couldn't quite put Ben. Meaning that Ben at this point of his career could have live most of Johnny's heat. On average Johnny can melt pretty much any metal in seconds, and melt bullet faster than they can get near. It's a feat definately.
Later Ben is ok.
Similar example, this time Torch is trying to get out of Ben's grip.
Comments: It should be noted shit like this is never inconsistent. However. This is probably imo the best resistance against Human Torch's flames.
Ben can handle Tank shells just fine, he caught the shell of a tank.
