That depends...what if I had these amazing powers to do good but was taken out of the equation.

Years later I come back and my friends tells me he used some of my DNA to help preserve democracy from another of my friends who thought he was better then everyone else. That his personal opinion weighed in for more then millions. And that even though he tried to talk with him about it time and time again that that other friend wouldnt talk and just kept punching away... I might not consider it evil.

Key factor here is consent. Thor, as far as we know, didn't. Even setting aside Clor's use as a weapon, that automatically makes it unethical.

And yeah, don't think Thor wouldn't side with Captain America over Iron Man ;\)
