    From what i remember, he kind of beat the reality manipulating Loki, managed to knock out a pym enlarged hulk by hitting him in the back of his head, and pushed Galactus back into the negative zone.

    There are caveats for each one of them though. He kind of was more hyped than what he was actually used for.


Yeah, Loki's powers were mysteriouly weakened and later Loki went from reality warper to illusionist and Giant Hulk was hit from the back of the head from a starting point of several miles away. There were always caveats

Funny, I think even the writers realized how pathetic Ultimate Thor was since they had to keep talking him up along with giving him two power upgrades to reassure readers he was a badass.

to be fair, for 99% of his tenure as a character he had his Godhood removed, and had to resort to tech supplied powers. He technically destroyed asgard in the first place, leaving Loki the sole God left

the very point of his fight with Loki was to bring the Gods back, since Loki Reality Warp happened because he was the only God that had survived Ragnarok with his powers intact.

considering the power of Asgard was split between all Asgardians, with the lion share being in Odin, the Norn Stones and the true Mjolnir, Havin Loki being the only God alive, with the Norn Stones, mjolnir destroyed with Asgard and Odin dead, that would would have given him the full power. Bringing the Gods back would have weakened him, as it did.

even when Ult Thor regained his Godhood, he didn't do anything with it; he was immediately re-depowered soon after when the gods were destroyed again by Reed/Maker, and Tony had to give him back the Tech powers.

He did land a solid blow on Galactus though, even if he was still at the time just a mortal in a Suit.

and he did beat Hyperion and Zarda together in the rematch, but it was in the middle of a team assault, so still a caveat win.

Even his tech hammer though had some ineffable abilities, like the time he teleported a Planetbusting bomb to Nostrond, which i felt was one of his coolest moments

so he did have good moments, only he didn't have good enough ones for what he was SUPPOSED to be. i liked the angle they went for with his personality at the start, a bit Sentry like in him being supposedly a possible loon that just believed himself a god, but done really well. The lack of trust in him of all the world around him, Loki twisting reality to fuck with him, and him being able to wade through it and show them that he really was something special, something more than a loon in a suit, i felt was the best the Ultimate universe ever offered us...
