      While I do believe Loki is lying to Masterson about him only wielding a tenth of Thor's strength, it's legitimate to question if he does indeed possess all of Thor's physical power based on his lack of durability and stamina in this fight. Thor has fought Loki many times over the years in this same exact scenario and never had busted ribs or was wobbly on his feet. Loki dominated this fight so quickly and decisively. I know Masterson's experience plays a factor but this battle appears to give credibility to Thor's statement of his strength being only his based on birthright.

    I am not sure that the statements are in contradiction. Thor's strength is his birthright, but at the same time it is the power of Thor -- and somehow gets passed along with the worthiness enchantment.

    I agree that its a legitimate question, with regard to Eric Masterson, but the general consensus is that Masterson was close enough in strength to Thor that it makes any contrary contention a moot point. He was able to stalemate Gladiator, for example.

    I was recently engaged in a discussion about this topic on the Battle Board, because Eric's battle with Seth raises this question. Bloodaxe was demolished by Seth, but somehow Bloodaxe + Thunderstrike was able to overpower Seth. Combined with Bloodstrike (Bloodaxe + Thunderstrike) being portrayed as a physical rival to Thor, the point could be argued that Eric as Thor was merely Class 85 along with Skurge.

    I didn't vigorously argue that Eric was equal to Skurge, but my point was that the question does raise doubt for some people.

Appreciate your reply. Yeah it's not an automatic slam-dunk thing here that ALL of Thor's power is given to anyone being able to lift the hammer. I believe there's enough here to argue the point.

Of course that's when good ole cannon/continuity meant something before.

Norvell I really hope we get back to Thor 616 when things made sense. I feel like we are in some sort of warped reality/timeline. It's mind-boggling to me how much Aaron has deviated from the past (in an attempt?) to create his own image and stamp his legacy into the book.

I guess it would be a good jumping point for new readers to boost sales somehow but man to rip apart the guy who's been around for 50 plus years to the point you steal his name is just crazy.

I feel so guilty now for reading and supporting the title. I had no idea it would turn out this way and last as long as it's had.
