                Hulk fans, suck it up. The entire world now knows what happens when Hulk fights a hammerless Thor. Let me give you a hint---

          I'm happy too but not for the same reasons. ;\-\) Both sets of fans got great things. Hulk was stronger and Thor was the superrior fighter and showed his godforce. And while the fight was leaning Thor when the grandmaster intervened, it was a momment in time and overall the outcome was as ambigous as so many comic issues.

        I don’t quite see it that way. Nothing at all indicated Hulk was stronger. However toward the end of the fight, it’s very clear Thor was in control.



    Quote:
    Thor rushing at him and jumping in an two handed overhand hammer swing and the Hulk just catching it in one hand and stopping him dead in his tracks? Thor's expression when it happened? The pummeling he took out of that sparked the Odin vision for him to tap into his godforce?



    Quote:
    The blow Thor landed against the Hulk early in the fight with the Hulk's hammer was strength, but it was as much suprise and timing and using the Hulk's momentum who was charging him.



    Quote:
    In the exchange of blows, Hulk was knocking Thor great distances acrooss the ring he landed, where Thor was hurting the Hulk with head, gut, and knee shots, etc. but not nearly with the same force. In fact, the Hulk rarely landed a shot because of Thor's superior speed, reflexes, and skill.



    Quote:
    But that's okay, brute strength is the Hulk's thing. It's what he is about and Thor is god of battle and storms and both their attributes showed.



    Quote:
    IMHO, it still wasn't enough to overcome Thor's strength, speed, and battle skills along with his godforce and the fight had swung to Thor. However, I think the fight would have continued on and the Hulk would have really started to rage and his dynamic strength would counter and who knows how it would have ended. Which is about what happens in every comic encounter they have.


Hookayyy, once again, catching the hammer is not proof of superior strength, especially since Thor was holding back most of that fight (“don’t worry banner, I’ll get you out”). And Hulk was most definitely reeling from Thor’s non-lightning blows. If anything, the argument could be made of Thor being stronger since Hulk was reeling more than Thor was during that fight.


Actually right before the attempted shot at the Hulk, Thor says to himself, "All right, screw it!" And then his offensive was stopped in it's track by one hand and Hulk who was on his knees. Thor had a running start and a leap as he swing the blow overhead and two handed. The look on Thor's face said it all.

Not holding back and the Hulk wasn't reeling as much from the force of the blows but the frequency and placement. Where the couple times the Hulk connected, he launched Thor across the Arena.

I've seen it four times and each time, it's more apparent the movie played to their individual strengths. In the case of the Hulk it was brute strength and that his durability allowed him to take the combo of all of Thor's abilities, even his shots that were powered up with his god power.

Now, if you were to argue Thor's blitz of all his powers were overcoming the Hulk's formidable strength, I would agree. Even then the outcome wasn't clear even though Thor was in the advantage at the end.
