    I am a Thor fan and a fan of cosmic characters. Not sure I have to do either of those things.

    I mean, I am not as mad as I would have once been but it is pretty rough. As Norvell says, we have lost the past art of telling stories through battles.

    It is possible to do things without humiliating characters like that for no real reason.

True, but it’s been happening to Thor for too many years now. I’d say Thor is probably the only top tier character in Marvel who gets shafted 90%of the time more than the others. How many times do you see the Hulks, Namor, Sentry, Gladiator and even BRB get
treated like Thor does?

So I welcome this showing for Thor, it is at least some way to go in establishing him as a serious powerhouse again.

I don't disagree with Thor being treated badly at all, but I do not think two wrongs make a right either.

I am also pretty confident that we are going to see very wildly different power showings that cause confusion.

He can easily handle a powered up Galactus but then will struggle against much lesser foes for no clear reason.

Remember his Thanos killed all the cosmics and gods. Then two Thanos's and a Hulk struggled at Silver Surfer with Mjolnir. After looking to fairly easily kill Galactus and King Thor earlier...

Just seems like a massive overshoot to me as it leaves not much to gain at the point.

Does Thor deserve to be treated better. No question. I just am not convinced that is the way to do it.

Look Raist bunnies...
