      Yep. Iron Man's heat seal basically contains Thor's strike so that all the force involved would vaporize the city instead of continually expanding outward, which would have left big chunks of the city coming down. That level of destruction was massive. Thor's strike though was not unprecedented. Thor also destroyed a huge section of Jotunheim in his first movie.

    LMAO. Did you even hear what Iron Man said? The heat seal was to protect everybody on the city otherwise Thor would have been incinerated as well.

      FRIDAY: The anti-gravs are rigged to flip.Touch them, they'll go full reverse thrust.
      The city's not coming down slow.
      STark : Spire is vibranium.If I get Thor to hit it...
      FRIDAY : It will crack. That's not enough.The impact would still be devastating.
      STARK: Maybe if we can cap the other end. Keep the atomic action doubling back. 
      FRIDAY: That could vaporise the city & everyone on it..
      STARK : I got it. Create a heat seal.I could...I could supercharge the spire from below.
      FRIDAY Running numbers
      FRIDAY : A heat seal could work with enough power.
      STARK: Thor, I got a plan.
      THOR : We're out of time.
Hey, we've seen your powers of interpretation in action already when you thought a life-bomb that destroyed 1/5 of the universe wasn't that powerful. You're obviously wrong again here. The heat seal isn't to protect everyone in the city. It's to help vaporize the city. That is exactly what Tony wanted. Friday's response is an affirmation of Tony's plan, not a rebuttal. The heat seal is to cap the other end. That's what a seal does. Yes, it could vaporize everyone on it too, WHICH IS WHY THE AVENGERS EVACUATED EVERYONE FIRST. At this point, we get the following exchange:

Tony: Thor, I'm gonna need you back in the church.
Thor: (referring to evacuees): Is this the last of them?
Cap: Yeah. Everyone else is on the carrier.
Tony: You know, this works, we maybe don't walk away.

So Tony affirms Friday's assessment here about how this plan could incinerate everyone on the city, but they are going to do it anyway as only Avengers are left in the city. When Thor is about to strike the core, everyone has escaped except the Scarlet Witch and she's saved by the Vision. Iron Man has to dodge the massive amount of debris. Only Thor is caught in the center of the explosion that destroys an entire city. It knocks him into the water, but the next time he appears, he is perfectly fine with just a couple of scratches on him.


      For comparison, Superman couldn't hold up one tower of an oil rig in Man of Steel and then was knocked out by it:

    And a nuke was about to kill everyone in Avengers including Hulk and Thor.

That's pure speculation on your part. Nothing in the movie states that the missile would have killed Thor and Hulk. Maybe it would have, but that's an unproven statement. However, we did see Superman get hit by a nuke and it would have killed him if he didn't get sunlight just in time.

    Haha no, did you even watch both movies with anything remotely like a brain in between your ears?

The truth hurts, doesn't it?
