Then Hulk finished up after Thor. It SEEMS Thor looked better to me.

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.

Yeah... and then Red Hulk very casually caught the very next hammer blow in his palm with little effort before yanking both Thor and the hammer into outer space... all the while carrying on a casual conversation with Thor and acting as if Thor might have well been hitting him with a fly swatter for all the effects Thor's flurry of hammer blows have had on the red guy.

> > > You could look at it that way or you could look at it as both Hulk and Thor realized just what they were facing and the power he had and this time around brought more of a fight to him. Lets face it Thor didn't hit him with the force in issue 5 that he did in issue 6. Hulk even said Red Hulk surprised him the first time. He hurt Hulk the first time but not the second time. But Rulk is still alive and who knows what else he will do to prove how powerful he truly is. As of right now though it seems if he gets to hot he becomes weaker and more vulnerable. maybe the secret for him is to stay calm and not as hot to be his most powerful.

> Just consider that line poor writing because Thor never has truly gone out to kill anybody his firsy meeting with someone not Knowing anuthing about them. So he was'nt going totally all out. In second meeting we see Thor fighting much smarter going inside usi percision hit then backing up to use EP's, he was'nt fighting Rhulk's game like in fisrt meeting(Slugging it out) and on account of it was winning second battle...

That "poor line writing" was actually very consistent with everything we have seen from Rulk in issues 1-5... a powerful being who was able to casually dismiss beings from the Abomination to a Watcher to Hulk himself and finally Thor. Rulk up to issue #6 was without a doubt being portrayed as well above the likes of Thor and his peers even at their angriest in the same way that Kurse or Mangog would have been above them all. Thats part of the reason so many of us are saying Rulk getting so easily beat down in this issue made no sense.
