Why anyone would want Thor or Hulk to be established as definitively superior to the other. I mean, the whole point is for it to be a great rivalry! The writers that made these characters great, like Stan Lee, Peter David, Walt Simonson... these writers understood this.

I DO have a problem with recent depictions of Thor in fights with Hulk, but that is because Marvel has allowed writers to depict Hulk in various incarnations doing everything but whipping out his johnson and pissing all over Thor. That is not the foundation for a great rivalry (LoL, obviously).

Everyone is going to have a favorite, but we should all be able to recognize that it's for the best if each character gets his props and no one is disrespected.

(Not really a response to Fifthchild in particular, just my two cents on the discussion in general.)

The "rivalry" is a myth. It was something that developed outside of the comics. It was carrier out in comics later because of the popularity it gained. This is a company after-all selling comics was priority one i believe. I always felt they should be friends, not rivals.

However you don't get why one should be superior. i don't understand the big deal in Thor having been Brought into the MU to be more powerful being a problem. It goes to the Hulk fan-base again. Heaven forbide if Hulk lose. You want proof look at the recent fight with Zeus there are many a Hulk fan pissed off about it. This is a Sky-Father. In no way losing to him is a disrespect to the character.

Hulk has lost before, he will lose again. But Thor is a being who is supposed to surpase his own father in power. Who powers were established as being greater. Who was depicted by Lee & Kirby as being like with Surfer simply on a higher scale than Hulk can achieve.

That's not disrespectful of Hulk. I;m sorry but therein lies a big part of the problem. That view.

Spider-man is nowhere near as powerful as Thor. That's supposed to be disrepectful of him? Same with DareDevil, and Cap. America. Even higher tier as in Iron-man. And Silver Surfer himself has admitted to Thor's superior power. It's not disrespectful to have character live up to their powers and abilities. To their tiers.

It's simply foolish to have an ant attack a lion, and expect an even showing out of "respect".
