Quote:I disagree because what is at stake here is the validity of any statement saying that nothing existed prior to KB that could hint at Thor possibly not always having been bulletproof all the way to his inception.
This is what they call a straw man. The argument isn't whether there is any proof existent of Thor's vulnerability to bullets prior to Busiek, it's how strong that proof is, whether its stands up to scrutiny, and whether it should overshadow the clear-cut examples of Thor withstanding bullets.
Pointing to JiM #100 and resting your case is, quite simply, weak sauce. That issue occurred, what, 4-5 issues after Odin and the Asgardians dressed up as U.N. representatives to trick Loki?
