Quote:Actually he was and I say this a Thor fan. Thor's superiority in the fight came from his combination of stregnth, speed, reflexes, agility, and combat skills. That along with his innate godforce.
Quote:The only time you got to see a contest of strength it wasn't even close. When Thor came at him with the Hulk's hammer with a running start, leap, and an two handed overhead swing. With one hand, Hulk caught the hammer and completely stopped Thor in his tracks. Thor's facial expression was shock and remeiniscant of the crap your pants momment Tony had in his fight with Hulk in AoU when he said, "I'm sorry"
Quote:When Hulk cut loose, Thor couldn't soak up his damage and Odin came to him in a vision to activate his godforce. The Hulk soaked up everything Thor had with his natural durability.
Quote:Thor was like Ali and was a ring general and was using the same awesome skills he showd in the opening sequence in Muspelheim. Hulk is the brute strength king and yes his blow staggered Surtur sideways and he was unhurt when Surtur cast him off and wanted to continue to fight the "Big Monster."
Quote:I got what I wanted for both characters and I am perfectly satisfied with Hulk being the strongest one there is because Thor was supperior.
Well, I say as a Thor fan, I didn’t see it that way at all. And Hulk catching that hammer blow is not an indication of being stronger. And before Thor summoned his innate godly power, he was taking by the Hulk’s pounding very well. No sign of being seriously hurt. But Thor did show superior fighting skill, speed and agility as well as comparable strength.
Hey, I am Thor fan too but he doesn't match the Hulk in strength and I think the movie shows it in the Arena, Hulk/Fenris, and the Hulk trying to tank Surtur but I think Thor more than outclasses him overall and it's only been the Hulk's dynamic strength that makes it the ultimate rivalry in Marvel.
I love both characters. The Hulk is a misunderstood monster, with a hero's heart but more of anti-hero.
Where Thor is the epitome of a hero, prince, top-tier power and one who others would follow into battle out of inspiration.
