Quote:He killed Bor during the JMS run, and the Sentry during Siege (Seige). Still have no idea how Thor can kill a guy like that and succeed, but whatever, it's canon. Other than that, has he ever killed? My guess would be yes, but I can't think of any examples.
He has shown a tendency to kill frost giants, demons, and other monsters without much hesitancy though it isn't always clearly shown. He has clearly killed a number of frost giants, the Midgard Serpent, Durok the Demolisher, an Earth mutant, and even Loki on one occasion.
As for Sentry it was the point of the comic and Bendis later confirmed Thor was only able to kill Sentry because Robert wanted to die and let Thor kill him.
I agree Thor's killed quite a few people, not to mention who knows how many giants, trolls, dark elves, demons and whatever I'm sure his body count is in the hundreds if not thousands. As stated before he has killed a few "named" beings including what was named plus Fafnir, Airwaker (true he was an android), Desak as King Thor, plus I would also add that his use of lethal force against the Celestials. He may not have succeeded but he did try to kill one by throwing the Odinsword through one and trying to destroy another's brain.
As for the Sentry, yeah he wanted to die or more importantly he controlled the Void long enough to be killed, there's a difference. But it took someone's of Thor's power level to do it. The Sentry has feats all over the place but at that time he was pretty uber and true he was tenderized before Thor's final blow but I don't think to many beings on the planet had the necessary power to finish the job.
