Quote:It could be argued that a Minotaur's horn would hit harder than a bullet. Same goes for a spear made of the metal of Asgard (or some other godly realm), thrown by someone with 35 ton level strength (Hawkeye's arrows could pierce Piledriver's skin, even though it was acknowledged that Piledriver is bulletproof). That ice shard showing sounds very inconsistent with Thor being bulletproof though.
Yeah it can be but cutting durability doesn't stops on bullets.
No, but the recent showings of Thor/Jane being bulletproof were notable in that Thor didn't seem to be solidly bulletproof under some previous writers (most notably Busiek). Gave me the impression that more recent writers were raising his hard durability up a bit.
Quote:Barring Diana and Thor I'm not sure any top tier has showed any vulnerability to bullets in a long time.
It's abnormal for a top-tier to be vulnerable to bullets, no question about it. Thor's relationship with bullets is weird though, in that he wasn't confirmed to be bulletproof or not until the 1990s. And since then, writers have flip-flopped back and forth over it.
It makes sense to me that Thor wouldn't be as quite as invulnerable as someone like Superman. He comes from a realm where bladed weapons are routinely used, and fights mythical creatures with sharp teeth and claws, so it seems appropriate that he can be injured by such things. That's not the same as a human with a handgun or an ice shard being able to take him out though. It seems ridiculous for a being of Thor's might to be laid low by something so mundane.
