Thor vs Hulk and the biased outcomes

Thor vs Hulk

Debating if one fictional character can win the other one in a fight is taken very religiously between comic collecting fanboys and it has been since the Superman was born 1938. But when it comes to the most hardcore fanboys the Hulk fans (or members of the Church of Hulk) and Thor fans (also known as Thorites) seem to have loudest opinions. And if you put these loud and passionate voices together in an argument about who should win in a fight between the Hulk and Thor, you get a thunder clap louder and more destructive than anything those two characters could ever muster up. Hulk fighting Thor is more than just a battle of the forces in a Comic universe, it’s a debate which seems to have no outcome.

*Start fanboy Rant*

Thor has gone against Galactus himself, ‘defeated’ him thrice, defeated Thanos twice, Silver Surfer, Adam Warlock, even Phoenix himself…but why the bloody hell can’t he defeat the Hulk in most of their battles? Why is it that the writers love to write Hulk defeating, and dominating Thor? I feel that this is my major concern and confusion in the Marvel department.

*End fanboy Rant*

Hulk vs Thor Old

Thor most of the times proves to be a punching bag to the real Hulk in comic books as well as all other forms of media. Animated features will come out; The Ultimate Avengers DVD (2006) where the Hulk knocks out Thor and then climaxing in the Hulk vs Thor DVD (2009) where the Hulk actually kills the Thunder God in a huge brawl. Thor fans tried to save face by saying these fights weren’t in regular comic continuity so they didn’t count. Well, that was until they got Hulk: Let The Battle Begin #1 (March 2010) where the Hulk finally defeats Thor conclusively in a fight and it was just another bitter pill for Thor fans to swallow (I totally feel their angst). So with this, the final nail was put in the Marvel mythos of “Hulk vs Thor.”

The current score card between Hulk and Thor is at Hulk-2 Thor-2. For a long time the score card was at a draw, most of the times they clashed their battles ended in draw.

The fight strategy is like The whole madder hulk gets the stronger he gets, there is no limit to his rage then there is no limit to his strength,  So does Thor. He doesn’t need to be angry to summon the limitless powers of mjolnir the power that struck the beast of 10000 gods in Chaos war with just a strike. If in a pissed off mood Thor, well you have to ask Thanos about what he felt that day.

Hulk vs Thor

Hulk has been knocked out by Spider Man, Wolverine, and in WWH was on a draw with Sentry. I think that this whole thing of ”madder he is the stronger he is” is just a excuse, he may be a hundred times angry like in WWH , but Thor is a freaking god, he just needs to hit him with his hammer and Hulk would be out, I don’t understand why he has to be unbeatable by Thor.

Basically it’s a writer “doing what they want” thing. When Stan Lee created Thor, he made a god because he wanted to one up the last hero he created, Hulk, the strongest human. He thought, how can I beat the strongest man? With a god!!! Stan intended Thor to be more powerful than the Hulk from the beginning. The writers have just gone away from that.

Thor vs Red Hulk

talking about Thor don’t want to hurt his “friend Banner” and all are just stupid, even if it was true then Thor would not have been defeated by the stupid dumbass Hulk clone who calls himself the Red Hulk. The writers should do justice with the strength and stamina of both of them and stop satisfying only the stupid Hulk fan-boys.

    That was perfectly said. Thank you so much for putting to words what so many of us feel.

      On paper Thor is considered in the top 5 superheroes of any comic:
      (In no particular order)
      Silver Surfer, Superman, Thor, Goku, Dr Manhatten.
      You’d be lucky if Hulk would be considered for top 15. It’s a writers problem as Hulk is the better known character. The minute Thor becomes more popular (which he is becoming) then the God of Thunder should regularly beat the Hulk
