Now THAT'S the Thor we know and love. This crap that Fraction has been pushing down our throats pales in comparison. BTW, I DROPPED the Mighty Thor, but kept JIM. As for the Brevoort and the likes, I'm sure you've heard the old saying about a fool in his foolishness thinks he's wiser than seven men that can render a reason......Excellent post Oliva! As usual. Cheers!

...just by reading at what Oliva wrote above, I know that all that I took the time to write was a pure waste of time. There is no discussion possible at all.

Let's say I go through all of the issues prior to Thomas' second run, noting every instance in which Thor encounters gunfire, how he reacts, what he says.

If the evidence points in a direction other than "Thomas had it right" will it be accepted? Will it even be acknowledged? Or will it just be rationalized away or ignored?

...not just some vague scene where he blocks bullets or flee from them. The Hulk has ran away from gunfire as well, but we all know he is bulletproof.

wrt to the Hulk, I'm not certain if Hulk is really bullet proof, however his healing regenerative powers does compensate his invulnerability to bullets.

Fleeing while stating there's a threat is not vague.

In the first couple of issues, there's actually a strong case for Hulk not being bulletproof. Igor shot him and said, "I have put a .38 slug in your shoulder..." and he shielded himself in the next issue. But since then, Hulk has been shot on literally hundreds of occasions and the bullets always bounce off. Any examples that might suggest he isn't bulletproof are exceptions, not the rule.

Thor, on the other hand, deflected bullets without exception for 30 years (give or take), even when doing so put others in danger, and referred to them as a threat on occasion.

I'm not trying to convince you that Thor isn't bulletproof. All I ask is that you acknowledge that there's evidence for both points of view.

...as far as explanation go, they said something like - the Hulk's durability is tied to his increasing strength...the angrier he gets, the stronger he gets and the more durable be gets. So, early on, bullets can harm him, but later on he is bulletproof.

I can't really aacknowledge something which has not be shown to be as such. Thor fleeing some cops is no proof of his durability. It's vague because it seems (to me at least) he was more puzzled than threatened. And because there are subsequent showings where he is bulletproof (without any explanation that he somehow increased his durability over time), there is no reason to believe that he was not bulletproof early on.

I will just agree to disagree. We can't really settle this issue if you have your own set of thinking and I have mine. This topic has been discussed enough. Both have expressed their sides at length.

Think about it. If bullets pierce his skin and are lodged inside his body, even if he heals from the wound, when he reverts back to Bruce Banner, those bullets will instantly kill him.

The hulk's durability is tied to his increasing strength. The angrier he gets, the stronger and more durable he gets.

There's Overwhelming proof that Thor is BEYOND being bullet-proof.. It's just a matter of accepting Reality....
