My gift to all the Thor fans who love the BIG comic book battles!! And it doesn't get any bigger than Hulk vs Juggernaut!!! Now why is this on the Thor boards you might ask? Well Thor has had some of his most memorable slugfests with both these brutes and he is always in the mix as one of the top-tier guys in Marvel. So I think you guys will really like this one!

Enjoy!!!

I admit its much more fair and balanced then many of these comparisons I read. I've always liked that about your blogs. I do agree Hulk on average probable comes off a bit stronger and Juggernaut with greater durability because as you state that is each their "thing." I can still see debates as to whether the Hulk has ever on his own truly stopped Juggernaut. Redirecting momentum can be argued to not be the same as truly stopping, but overall I agree with your assessment.

One thing I do disagree with is the Professor Hulk. I think he is a nice difference from the almost perpetually angry/outcast Hulk we tend to get regardless of personality. He also had a degree of vulnerability I find some Hulks, especially the most modern one lack.On the other hand, I have never read much of Hulk so I do not have a lot to go by.

For your next one how about "Hulk vs Hercules" I know their rivalry is not as legendary as some of the others, but both are beings proud of their strength and like to boast about how they are the "strongest there is" yet both lack a real victory over the other. It would also show how well Hulk does compared to another god besides Thor.

As I recall his best showing against Herc was when Pak had him and WWH fighting. Herc was not fighting back but it is clear from Paks run that he sees Hulk as much stronger but Pak see's Hulk as much stronger than anyone so not sure if he is the greatest gauge.

My favorite Hulk was always savage. Always loved him in Defenders. I thought the character actually came off as innocent and not arrogant. He was the strongest but at the same time was sort of like a child. Who just happened to throw city wrecking temper tantrums and I found really easy to root for. You wanted him to do something outlandish. The modern Hulk, at least one of the reasons I do not like him is the arrogance.

I like a character who has a great power feat on occasion but Hulk honestly rarely seems threatened anymore. We have seen Thor recently stalemated by Surfer and in some good fights. Hulk just seems to walk over his rogues for the most part and does as he will. And I just do not see the appeal in that. I never did.

It's not that I'm being fair, it's just being honest about what's on the paper. We fanboys of our heroes like to sometimes push our favorites to the top and try to convince others because we have such a "love" for that character. I get it, but it's not the truth. I love all the characters and fights that I do write ups on so I honor them by always basing it on the truth, there is no other way. And doing that surprises a lot of people. I'm also friends with a lot of creators in the industry that if I can't answer a question or if there is a big debate on something, I go to them for the answers. It's all about writing with your head and not your heart.

Glad you enjoyed it!

I have gotten about 30 requests already (this is the second one for Hulk vs Herc). Be assured that what comes next will be fun, unbiased, complete and supa dupa!! It just may be a while until it comes because I got a ton of other articles to write.

Thanks again.
