    I disagree with the claim that Thor is exclusively an action comic.


Never said it was exclusively an action comic, but I will say it should be primarily an action comic and anyone who doesn't see that, doesn't understand the character (IMHO)...which is probably why Thor has really taken a back seat in his own title of late.


    Quote:
    Under some writers it is, but to just label it as that is limiting it.


I'm sorry but I don't see 'action' as a limitation. It was never a limitation for Lee; Simonson; DeFalco; Jurgens; Oeming or numerous other Thor writers.

To JMS its almost as if action is a dirty word.


    Quote:
    JMS is taking it in a direction with less action, but still telling a compelling story.


It is an interesting story, but its never an exciting one.


    Quote:
    Pure action can be just as pointless.


I don't think anyones asking for that; although at the moment in Thor it would be a nice change of pace.


    Quote:
    Personally, I would rather be reading Thor as it currently is than have a book where Thor just goes from one issue to the next and beat someone up like in the current Hulk title by Loeb.


Well I actually buy both Thor and Hulk, and they are polar opposites. Thor is deep yet boring, while Hulk is vacuous yet exciting.

I'm not saying one is better than the other, but I certainly know which I look forward to most...
