    Am I alone here!? Lol

Quite possibly.

    Don't get me wrong, there things about and decisions made by Aaron that frustrated me,

If you liked Aaron's run then I would have to question why the hell you ever liked Thor in the first place because that run is basically 'Anti-Thor'?

    but I think God Butcher and his final story King Thor are masterpieces as comics go.

God Butcher was very good, but horribly decompressed. The final story did nothing to atone for all those stories in between.

    And Donny Cates, his first six issues are exploding my brain with thunderous delight. It's like that movie Mandy if it was a Thor comic! For me it hits all the right notes, and while I understand the criticism, none of it really resonates with me. It all feels a bit arbitrary to me. Seems like judging this Thor run according to a kind of preconceived set of limited power levels that I'm less interested in personally.

Given you already stated you liked Aaron's run you are clearly no fan of continuity, logic or history - so I can understand why you would also like Cates since he has the exact same writing traits.

    Anyway, I was just curious does, did anyone else out there enjoy Aaron's stuff that also likes Cates? Anyone else still like Thor comics?

Aaron hated Thor and everything he stood for - hence his horrible deconstruction of the character.

Cates (so far) seems like a battle board fanboy.

I'll take the latter over the former any day but it would be good to get a decent story for once.

You address Omnipotence...tread carefully.
