Really?! THOR?! Well, didn't read it but now was curious so found this info at Christopher Priest's site:
Ross first embarrasses then insults the U.S. President ("Bubba") by blaming the White House for a huge riot outside of the Waldorf Astoria. The White House, embarrassed to learn they'd never given King T'Challa an official state reception, throws one at the Waldorf Astoria. When an activist senator (and former college rival of T'Challa's) discovered the guest list was woefully shy of black people, he organizes a demonstration, which draws a huge crowd outside the hotel. Meanwhile, the street thugs and drug dealers Panther had been rousting during issues #1-5 pool their resources and hire KRAVEN THE HUNTER to go after him. Kraven ambushes Panther at the Waldorf, delaying Panther while the crowd and the police presence increases outside. THE AVENGERS respond to official requests for crowd control (and to support their teammate). Achebe seizes on the moment to have Monica Lynne, strapped into a remote-controlled exo-skeleton, fire on the crowd, nailing Thor in the head and inciting the riot everyone was there to prevent. During the course of their efforts to quell the riot, Panther reveals, via comm. link, that the only reason he joined the Avengers in the first place was, essentially, to spy on them. Once the heroes have won the day, the Avengers confront Panther, assuming his revelation was a ruse meant to mislead Achebe, but Panther confirms his statement was true- driving a wedge between himself and the team. Art by Joe Jusko. Edited by Joe Quesada, Nanci Dakesian and Jimmy Palmiotti

Now, I got to find the issue to see if maybe he was hit in the temple or something. That might clear up the surprise of this thread that may be out of context...
