I know it's not cannon but since nothing of note is happening lately, I thought I'd post it. It looks like it could be fun. Unfortunately, it's written by Yost so yea. At least the Hulk fan base will enjoy this. ;\-\)

I do find it amusing though that the thought of Thor stalemating Hulk to an inconclusive end gnawed at him. You can just feel it emanating from the dialogue. \:\- \(lol\)

It's been a while since we've had a classic throw down between the high end characters. We need a World War Hulk like event.

Not this Hulk fan. I have to say, I'm very very tired of the whole Hulk vs Thor debate, and Hulk vs Thor fights. I really do think that Horse has been flogged to death. I appreciate that Hulk and Thor will ALWAYS have that rivalry, but I think the rivalry could be explored from different directions now. Especially as Thor and the Hulk mututally made peace with each other, and recently, Thor has willingly worked with Bruce Banner in his attempts to undo the Intelligencia's doomsday plans.

We do that, but what I would dearly love to see would be some sort of mini where Thor and the Hulk fight literally, overwhelming odds shoulder to shoulder side by side. I think Thor and the Hulk teaming up is tantamount to an unstoppable force, both characters are so formidable solo, imagine them together working as a unit. That makes my inner fanboy quiver with excitement. Its something I'd love to see.

And truth be told, I think even the most staunch Thor and Hulk fans would like it too. It gives a new dynamic for their rivalry to play out, only instead of trying to score points whaling on each other, they score points whaling on others in a game of oneupsmanship.

yeah, but it'd be OK if a Thor fanboy writer would script the opposite conclusion.

And ,of course, all writers who don't subscribe to your philosphy are 'fanboy writers'.

Yost is the same guy who gave a gleeful interview during the 'Hulk Vs' about how much fun it was to have Hulk beatdown Thor. Thor had almost not offense in that fight and up to then no Thor vs Hulk was as one-sided as that affair. As far as Thor fanboy writers, you are projecting quite a bit because there is absolutely no reference from me ever saying I want to see a Thor vs Hulk fight where Thor dominates. Yost has proven to be a fanboy writer so you really are grasping at straws.

So Hulk can beat down a mind controlled Thor-Yost and Quesada shouldnt be allowed to touch the Thor charater.Their disdain for him and Hulk favoritism makes me sick.Good times for the Hulk fans though.I think the worst part of it is that so many new fans see the current marvel videos and must think this is the way Thor was meant to be portrayed.I realize this is the AEMH book but it is based on the show and carries the same head writer.I think until new people are in position at marvel Thor will always be short changed on the video end of things.Which is a shame because Thor has such potential in that area.Hope he can hold interest until Yost is gone-although with Thor fans luck in these matters Loeb will take control next and boy he is suuuch a good fit for Thor. \(devil\)

yet the company has no problem employing him. I think your fanboy meter must need adjusting. Maybe you could gather all the Marvel executives in a room and explain it to them.

Look, over the last two plus years Marvel has been reinforcing the fact that Hulk is the top dog. They can't ALL be fanboy writers for god's sake! Face facts; it's Marvel policy that Hulk beats anyone he wants when properly motivated. Sure, there are writers at Marvel who enjoy this trend, and certainly all comic book writers have their favorite character. You don't go into writing comics for a living if you don't enjoy comics. But none of these stories would see print if they didn't align with Marvel policy. Period. Quit complaining and pointing fingers because it isn't your favorite at the top of the food chain. Over at DC I don't hear Batman fans complaining that Superman is more powerful... because Batman can still be a way cooler character without being top dog! Hope for better writers that can brush up your fave's cool factor, because he's never gonna be more powerful than Hulk.

I don't know why some of the replies added here after mine are insinuating that Hulk fans are going to lap this up and enjoy it in an immeasurable aplenty LOL.

What I find particularly piquant about this whole escapade is the fact that I have no doubt that the more pubescent comic fans in general and specifically will find it a particularly orgasmic proceeding. But the more sagacious Hulk fans will see it for what it is, sheer imprudence.

Most understand how powerful Thor is, and respect that. Most Hulk fans understand that they are peers and equiponderate. But with Hulk possibly edging Thor in strength, where Thor has more powers thus, more 'powerful'. I for one, did not enjoy Hulk vs Thor.

Anyone who would complain that Batman should beat Superman in a fight is A) an imbecile or B) Doesn't know much about comics so you picked a pretty piss poor example. Hulk and Thor are peers, one can argue till the cows come home about who should win but the Batman/Superman comparison holds no water.

Now I realize that you are one of the more ravenous Hulk fanboys on this board. However I was not complaining that Thor should win but shouldn't have admitted fanboy writers who stated how much they enjoyed Hulk kick the living crap outta Thor in 'Hulk Vs' doing this detail. If you think that fanfic Pak is chugging out is good writing, well I guess there ain't much to talk about.

You sit there and say that but... Do you seriously mean to tell me, that if you as a passionate Thor fan had a writer like Pak writing Thor, as in a writer who loves the character and all he stands for, you wouldn't like it immensely?

I hope one day all comics get a writer like Pak, I mean that sincerely too.

but the idea of Hulk 'slightly edging Thor' in strength is ludicrous. One arm wrestle 50+ years ago cannot change the fact we've seen Hulk skyrocket past Thor's strength limit many many times.
Clinging to that portrayal is like clinging to the Bibles explanation of creation. We've moved on.

Actually no I don't want to see Thor totally dominate foes and not even be given a stiff challenge once in a while. Honestly Pak has set the table where if Hulk bested Galactus it wouldn't be shocking. I used to watch Steven Seagall movies until I realized noboby ever gave him much of a fight. I soon stopped watching Steven Seagall movies \(loucheur\)

Exactly as you describe it, facing what seems to be insurmountable odds and just mowing through them. All the while, trying to show each other up in a sort of friendly but competitive way.

Yeah I wasnt very clear on the Hulk comment.It should have been placed elsewhere in the rant because what I meant was its a good time for Hulk fans overall NOT that they are crazy about all the Thor/Hulk crud we have seen on video the last few years.Some probably are and thats their right,just like its mine to hate the direction marvel has taken.

I knew you were a good egg Deathhead. Call the marvel executives, set it up and lets make it happen ;\-\) .

Thor has been given his due in the cartoon. If Hulk is stronger or more powerful, that's just how it is in this universe.

I think it will be something resembling a draw, anyhow.

And what's Thor's strength limit?
