> ... you would have seen that Thor essentially blindsides Rulk with the hammer throw while he is fighting Hulk and then never lets up... he kept pounding on Rulk with the hammer and then following up with the lightning... keeping the Red guy on the back foot and not allowing him to get on the offensive or connect with any blows of his own. There is nothing wrong with that strategy of course. Seeing how powerful Rulk was the first time around it would make sense to keep him on the back foot and too stunned to counter attack. However this does leave open to speculation just how well Thor would have done if he had fought Rulk straight up (like Hulk was doing) and actually exchanged blows with him since Thor like Hulk didn't do too well when he was on the receiving end of Rulk's attack the first time around.
> Of course the very fact that Thor or Hulk's blows had any affect whatsoever on Rulk after he virtually destroyed them both in the previous two issues just emphasizes how much rubbish this book was.
I think you are right to some degree. While Thor did perhaps blindside RHulk judging by the way RHulk had in the last issue shrugged off Thor's blows none of Thor's other blows should have effected him and if RHulk had any training at all depending on how much he should have still been able to recover and land his own blows, but even Thor's energy attack had RHulk going down.
