        The Hulk's resistance to cuts has varied alot over the years; that ranking probably does tend towards the lower showings, although the lower showings have been more prevalent in recent decades than the higher end stuff. Admittedly, I wasn't aware of the two showings you cited. Hulk shrugging off adamantium bullets in particular is quite a surprising showing for him to have in the modern era.



      Quote:
      Yes, it was. Under Waid Hulk was all but indestructible (pun intended).

      Hulk was even noted to be weakened.

    That's a great showing. I actually prefer a Hulk with high durability and lower healing (still superhuman, but not Wolverine level), rather than the other way around.


Me too. Him being so squishy made little sense considering how his durability was for better part of three decades.

        Thor may be a little low too, on reflection. He and Jane have been getting better showings in terms of being bulletproof in recent years.



      Quote:
      Being bulletproof. Aaron has Thor surprisingly squishy and he has been run through by simple spears and gored by minotaur and mystique stabbed him through by an ice shard.



    Quote:
    It could be argued that a Minotaur's horn would hit harder than a bullet. Same goes for a spear made of the metal of Asgard (or some other godly realm), thrown by someone with 35 ton level strength (Hawkeye's arrows could pierce Piledriver's skin, even though it was acknowledged that Piledriver is bulletproof). That ice shard showing sounds very inconsistent with Thor being bulletproof though.


Yeah it can be but cutting durability doesn't stops on bullets. Barring Diana and Thor I'm not sure any top tier has showed any vulnerability to bullets in a long time.

Here it is. TBH, Iceman was portrayed in a very high light in the arc.

        I could see those two being flipped around; they were right next to each other on that list anyway, and those were only rough lists. There're a few other characters I might rank slightly differently on a different day, depending on my mood.



      Quote:
      But I don't think Thor has ever shown he has a clear edge on surfer in terms of blunt force damage. Surfer has however.

Fair enough.
