Can you imagine Hulk or Sentry being taken down like Thor? I cant! Ask Bendis or Hulk fanboys Pak or Loeb whether Hulk would have been KOed like Thor was. What do you imagine their answer would be? This to me is the problem many Thor fans have, including me.

The Marvel gods are simply no different to super-powered humans - there are many humans more powerful than individual gods and their immortality/longevity is not even a factor in any fights. What sort of skills could humans develop if they lived several millennium? The gods don't seem to have any more skills than the mortal humans have. It seems all Osborne needs to do is drop the Sentry or the Hulk into Asgard and either one could by themselves beat all the Asgardians. Do you remember the 'Hulk vs' DVD?

Marvel history has been re-written to include a Superman like clone in the Sentry who if he took out Molecule Man (I did not read this myself), one of the most powerful beings in the universe, he is simply too powerful for anyone including Thor and the Hulk. The Hulk fanboys have evolved the Hulk's powers over the years so that he is no longer the classic Hulk (e.g. healing ability, no need to breathe, enhanced speed, invulnerability to psychic and magical attacks). Hulk's evolution has led to the ridiculous statement by Pak that Odin-powered Thor was lucky he wasn't fighting WWH instead of the Sentry. Odin, who at one time was considered one of the most powerful beings in the Marvel universe is now seeminly second-rate. Thor has recently reverted back to classic power levels. Thor, outside of mainline Marvel is simply not rated with other powerhouses. This is clear in the Ultimate universe, the Heroes Reborn universe and now in the animated universe where Hulk is shown to beat Thor 'easily' every time. Will the future Avengers movie be any different? I doubt it.

There is a new status quo and Thor fans have to accept that he is no longer at the top of power pyramid in the Marvel universe and it is unlikely that he will ever be again. I hope I am wrong.

Sentry was taken out by a kree gun of all things (then he reassembled himself, but that's a different story) and Hulk, during WWH none the less, stalemated Juggernaut like, virtually, every time before. Oh yes,  they would be taken out just like Thor was!
