    Some caveats.
    Firstly Thor has explicitly tried to kill the Hulk. A few times. Once in warrior madness.
    To use a portal Thor has to carry the Hulk through. In that Episode Thor breaks Hulks track record against Thors lightning (and pretty much all electrical attacks) and goes down rather easily. I'm pretty sure that wouldn't happen again,(especially since Hulk has gone through many in continuity power ups since then and Thors stock has rather waned in comparison).
    So Thor has to knock Hulk out and carry him through the portal. No easy task.
    Hulk would also not die on Pluto, he can survive in a vacuum. Thor would have to do what he always tries to do, to bludgeon Hulk unconscious, there he could kill Hulk whatever planet he was on.
    A bit like when Hulk could have killed Thor in that very annual in the exact same way.

Well, Thor did try to kill the Hulk, but Hulk was becoming Maestro in that issue-but you also forget that Thor was still holding back when he chose not to use Mjolnir's other more exptic powers.

The point is those electrical attacks brought down the Hulk.
Thor can KO him, like I said if Thor actually wants to kill the Hulk he would have done it because there is a lot more than just blasting in that hammer-the more exptic attacks.
Also, Thor has shown that he cajn summon extremely powerful lightning bolts without using Mjolnir, just like he defeated Durok, this is the same situation on how would Hulk go down.

But I agree, today's Thor is weakling compared to previous versions.

I can see Thor really doing something with was the anti-force blast.
The Godblast? Takes too long. Can be dodged. Years ago I questioned these exotic powers on this board and out of very few actual replies the anti-force blast was the only thing that could really pose a problem for Hulk.

He actually wasn't becoming the Maestro - in fact he was behaving like a martyr , getting the world to focus on him , not something the Maestro would ever do.
Also Thor's warrior madness while increasing his strength and aggressiveness, does not lend itself well to thinking. I wouldn't say he chose not to use them rather he was focussed simply on 'I'll kill you Ill kill you'.
Hulk was absolutely blasted by lightning in that encounter too. It didn't do anything. I will stay with my opinion that that Hulk ko was an extreme outlier.
The Durok strike may work on a calm Hulk, on no planet would it work on a Hulk that thinks Betty is dead.

'If the criteria for being called a god is to be stronger than Hulk can be, than the number of gods in Marvel just dropped to possibly zero'. WBW
