The Thor story was more believable because Thor is in Thanos' weight class. With the proper power ups he can defeat Thanos. Ka-Zar is not in Thanos' weight class so he will have to win through P.I.S.
Quote:It is what happens when you have one uber friendly writer that cannot see you fail. Really, the Thor loss was not bad given what Thor was throwing at him (although strange when you consider what he took from Odin, Galactus and Tyrant at other times).
We know Marvel is not going to have Thanos kill Ka-Zar. and Thanos is a villain and villains never ultimately win.
Quote:The Kazar one (even though the fight is a bit more than what some thing) was the one that made the most sense to me.
That's the problem, writers don't really care about another writer's story. I can say that if Starlin didn't have such a devotion to Thanos' legacy then we might not be seeing him in the upcoming Avengers movie.
Quote:I would like some other things to be retconed with other characters, but Starlin always protected his boy.
I think your last point is fair, but really the fact that he has been a major villain seems to me the primary thing. That he has lost before does not seem to impact that much.
Galactus is still considered a big and scary character but has had some bad showings. Same with other characters. Thanos could be included if he only showed up in Infinity Gauntlet really.
