    Hulk #300. Yes Thor takes on the Mindless Hulk, its a shame really that they didn't make more out of that than they did. I actually got my Hulk 300 out of the filing cabinet and am looking at it now. Splash page where Hulk and Thor charge one another it seems. Lightning going everywhere... then there is all that stuff with Dr Strange... then its back to the fight, Hulk tries to crush Thor with a car, which Thor promptly hammers to bits. He hits Hulk accross the chest then with Mjolnir, Hulk is unphased. Hulk then punches out at Thor, and I think given the art, he misses... Thor then smacks Hulk away, Hulk gets up picks up his adamantium statue, and Thor realises if Hulk starts hitting him with that he could die... he tosses mjolnir at it and it vibrates loudly Hulk drops it... Strange then shows up and Banishes Hulk. That's all there was to the fight. Thor did reasonably well in that issue. Must give him credit where its due!

One could also make the argument Thor battled the Hulk in Thor #385. That Hulk did not revert back to Banner even when calm, but had some intelligence. I will say that by the end of the fight Hulk was dominating, but Thor was without his hammer for at least half of it and at first was dominating and more or less held his own or matched the Hulk blow for blow. So, each time they do fight it is close unlike on the dvd.

I won't get into the whole "Who is stronger Hulk vs. Thor debate?" I will only say that Thor is pretty much the Hulk's equal in strength most of the time. Also, since strength is the Hulk's main thing while Thor has other powers Hulk's strength is played up more than Thor which is one reason for more strength feats.

    Well Hulk's strength is IMV proved to be limitless and there are statements in the comic that confirm that. However, his stamina is not limtless and has never been shown to be limtiless. He DOES get tired and the more punishment he takes the more of a toll it puts on him, and combine that with how Hulk exerts himself, he is going to to fail.

I don't go into the strength debate due to reasons stated, but I think there is evidence either way. Grey Hulk one time stated Satannish (or some demon lord) had physical strength that not even the Savage Hulk could match even if he had months. But then there are statements, feats, etc. the other way. Finally, there is hyperbole. I so I won't say one way or the other. I do think though it has been established that his stamina and healing can eventually be overcome even if it takes years.

    Haven't wrote it yet. I failed in my Fire Service application, they turned me down which I am really really upset over as I really wanted the job and Im as fit as a flea, god I can outrun men half my size... So tonight, all that awaits me is bottles of mead, one after the other after the other, until I am as drunk as 40 victorious Asgardians!!!

Sorry, I have had job interviews where I don't know why, but for some reason I failed. The best thing you might be able to do is learn what you did wrong or what they think you failed at and try again.
