There is hard durability, which is what is asked for by the OP, and then there is damage soak. And then there is durability vs. physical attacks or durability vs. EP, heat, cold, radiation, etc.

No one is questioning Thor's damage soak, his ability to take one hell of a beating before dropping. It is his hard durability that is in question. Thor standing in the sun...awesome display of durability vs. heat and radiation. Not informative, though, about Thor's hard durability vs. physical attacks.

Hasn't Thor taken Wolverine's Adamantium Claws to the face and they only managed to scratch him? Pretty sure that counts as much higher Durability than Thing (who failed to take a claw hit from Logan), Colossus, Luke Cage and Iron Man. There is simply no way in the world those guys I just mentioned have ANY degree of durability that is higher than Thor.

It's interesting that a hero/villain performs one amazing feat, or use a power they haven't used for 20+ years, and that automatically propels them to a high status despite scans and evidence to the contrary. I don't know what is worse, selective feat picking that has only been done once or twice 20, or more, years ago or ignoring evidence from scans or the lack thereof. We need to stop putting our favorite heroes/villains on pedestals and start putting them where they really belong. But it's evident that people never will because they would rather accuse others of cherry picking feats, when they don't, and being 'morally superior' when they aren't. I guess being honest and as fair as possible only opens one up to being the target of childish accusations and fault finding by those who insist on acting petty and childish. What happened to a good debate between two civil, mature, adults?
