Subj: To be fair, the Marvel RPG also rates Thor 2nd to last.

Naw, I just don't share your opinion. *insert Debbie Downer noise here* I like the character, but what was asked for in the thread was hard durability, not stamina, not how much of a beating he can take. I take that to mean simply how tough his outer hide/exterior is and/or his resistance to injury. The Hulk is a great example of this. Classically he could take hits from powerful opponents and you rarely saw him bleed....then the healing factor retcon came in and he was seen getting injured and bleeding much more frequently, but healing extremely fast, especially during the PAD years. Thor has shown he can take a beating, but his skin has also been penetrated by a bullet. On the other hand he's also been shown to be bulletproof on several occasions as well. Classically he was often seen deflecting bullets with Mjolnir, one time saying "luckily I can deflect the shells with my enchanted mallet before they can strike me", implying bullets might hurt him to some degree. More often than not I'd say Thor is bullet proof or at least bullet resistant. However, the fact that it can even be called into question shows that his hard durability should not put him high on this list.
Giving him excellent body armour (20), but unearthly endurance (100). Also, Wonder Man was noted in the Korvac arc as being more impervious to harm, amazing body armour (50) and monstrous endurance (75).
