    I can not remember the source but Stan was unhappy with the way Thor looked at the end. He felt Thor was as durable as Hulk and the wording reads that way. Hulks statement and Thor was not down and willing to continue the battle. I don't think the issue settles anything and is not even in the ball park of disrespect as The Battle Begins. I agree Marvel has really misused the character whatever the reason.

I'm not sure what wording you're speaking of.

When Thor is lying on the ground looking a mess and asks....

"Is there no end to the beasts strength?"

WHAT? This is Thor, he still has one of, if not the greatest strength feat in Marvel comics to today. He's the same guy who Stan wrote as saying his own strength was "unlimited".

Or was it when hulk says this....

"Thor getting weak.. hulk never get weak"

The same Thunder God who's proven he can go for Months in a fight without tiring. Who went toe to toe with hulk in the past before this and didn't "get weak". Funnily enough he did this with a hulk who was FAR stronger than this version as that was a completely out of control Bannerless hulk.

I'd say it's an argument as to which was more disrespectful. that battle crap was bad but lasted a few panels, and there was a hint at the end that it didn't really happen. Where as this was a long drawn out fight where it was made clear, in opposition of what we've read and seen before that Thor was weaker and losing. IN HIS OWN COMIC!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

But it's as I said Jim Shooter was the snowball. At first it wasn't big and didn't seem like a big deal.... now it's a boulder.
