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

    ...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).

To say he was "bulletproof" since inception is a lie pure and simple. To say he now is, however, is true. 

Also, for the hundredth time, using laser, Hulk punches or god knows what else but bullets, to support Thor always being bulletproof is a fallacy in it's purest form. This was discussed to death several times before and every time someone, often me, had to remind the person making the statement you made above that the nature of the attack was the key not it's power. A lot like WW who too had issues with bullets despite her standing up to stuff a LOT more powerful than mere bullets. It also goes WAY before KB as he himself already explained it several times. Before the chain mail Thor debut, Defalco's story was the exception not the norm. An exception that all fans were happy to see, but an exception none the less.

Again, I will refer you to the last thread on the topic. Here
