Subj: I think you meant - "bullet resistant", that's what Kurt Busiek tried to introduce to us readers...

This was during the Kurt Busiek /George Perez Avengers run correct? Hmmm. I don't remember that. I have most of the run, really liked it, Perez was great, and I rememer some pretty impressive Thor showings (During that whole overlong drawn-out to eternity infinity and beyond Kang War, Thor took on the Presence and came close to killing him. The Presence is a pretty powerful villian, he can probably tie the Silver Surfer. And of course, his showing against Ultron in the classic Ultron Unlimited storyline.).

I know that they said that he was bulletproof, but did we ever see anything like this? Did he get hit with a bullet and hold his arm and fall to the ground or something like a normal person would? Actually, regular people can any many times have survived gunshots to the head and lived. So I doubt that, if this happened (And again, I'm sorry, but I don't remember this ever happening.), Thor would sustain much damage. I'm just wondering if this happened, or if this is something that they just SAID. If anybody knows of any circumstances, please let me know, and I'll be eager to raid my collection for the back issues (Not like I need an excuse. This is a cry for help really, is all that it is.).

...even if Thor has always been "bulletproof" since inception (you know, withstanding lasers and far more powerful attacks), and during the late 80s and early 90s where there were specific instances that bullets actually hit him and was never injured...and of course during JMS's run. And now, he is officially bulletproof, even if he has always been (except for that one Black Panther issue, which the writer already retracted anyway).
