I think the key element is this scene is set some way into the future and Thor had the Odinpower for quite some time. Even with it weakened or shut off he was now a lot stronger and tougher than he was as a younger man - he was now skyfather after all - and yet not as old and atrophied as his father was.
A loose comparison might be Guy Gardner who back in the early 90s used the Power Ring to gradually pump up his physique to near bodybuilder proportions. Just because he eventually lost the ring the boost was still there as it was natural & physical in nature.
The Baseline strength of Odin or Zeus did vary a bit between era's but I don't think there's anything to say either were weaker than their sons on average, their station as skyfathers doesn't just mean cosmic power it means extreme physical power too. And for anyone grumbling about the Hulk being killed - what's to grumble about? He's never been unkillable and he's definitly not the most powerful thing in the MU, which was what the driving element of this story was about. Here we had Gods walking the earth with no mercy or restraint and the implications of that naturally deserve exploring, it's no different than the Hulks own 'Future Imperfect' in it's themes.

I think it's a given Not all Asgardians are equal, some are clearly more powerful, and Thor himself is something else entirely.
As the son of Odin & Gaea his potential is a mystery and the notion he will gradually get more powerful as he evolves should surprise no one, he is a God and by the time of that storyline he was out of any control due to the effects of too much power and a desire for too much control....
