Quote:I think Thor as an Avenger has run its course, for now anyway. I don't think Bendis really has any idea how to write him, and he really hasn't done a whole lot in the Avengers books lately worthy of someone that is supposed to be as powerful as Thor. I don't know if he will be an Avenger during Marvel Now, but for some reason I just have Thor fatigue, and would like him to go away for awhile. I don't find his character all that interesting and would much rather see the focus on someone like the Hulk as the heavy hitter on the team. I think that would be a more interesting dynamic, and it seems that Marvel is trying to bring the Hulk to the forefront after stealing the show in the Avengers movie. Thor just seems like a afterthought.
You say Thor "hasn't really done a whole lot," but you have "Thor fatigue" and want him to "go away for a while?"
I meant that Thor seems watered down to fit into the team environment, if Thor were to really unleash than I can't think of to many situations he couldn't handle on his own. Hence, the "not doing much" and coming off one dimensional. He can't be that powerful because the rest of the Avengers would come off weak or not useful. Thor should be the guy they go to when things are going bad, and they need some heavy artillery. Now with the Hulk on the team it will be even more obvious that Thor is being written in a way to keep the other characters strong. And I firmly believe that a vacation from the active roster of the Avengers and a new writer will do wonders for the character. Hope that clears it up.
