when most anyone else would quit, either because they physically can't go on or because they give up.

Even under immense odds, most heroes don't 'give up', but when they get beaten down, they may not get up where the guys with the most 'fight' or mental toughness don't.

Thor's functioning while under Hela's curse is a pretty impressive example, as is both Thor and Superman's performances under Jurgens vs. Destroyer and Doomsday respectively.



My intent is not to diminish Thor. It is just to remind of context. Even the example you gave is about significant odds. We usually judge this sort of thing in that context.

Your are right that the ability to fight through despite all of that is key. However, I would still argue that this is more an exercise to play up lower tier characters than to diminish more powerful ones. They have to push harder in general that the more top tier guys in each situation.

Of course all superheroes have that gut check moment, some have many if they have been around in comics long enough.

I am just trying to explain my thoughts on what is meant. I do not think it is a knock on Thor, Superman or whomever else. It is more a matter of admiring the determination to heroes that may not even have powers in the first place.
