    JiM #100 was indicative that a Thor was wary of bullets at one time (which is easily explained), but it's not conclusive. So the evidence is pretty clear cut in favour of Thor being bulletproof. This is excluding all the evidence of Thor taking lacerating/piercing damage without bleeding.

The burden of your interpretation rest on your shoulders here tho. JIM#100 support a lot more the side of Thor fearing for his safety than anything else you might want to promote. That much is a given. Also, I can never agree that the evidence is "pretty clear cut" as you put it. It's anything but clear cut, and it's why this debate still exist. If it was so clear cut there would be no such debate since forever.

    Busiek is 'hated', for lack of a better word, because he launched an insult on intelligence against Thor fans.

I have a hard time understanding why he was more insulting than a lot of writers who came before him and eventually lead him to believe what he stated on the subject. Even your scans of Thunderstrike, who are coming 26 years after Thor's debut, aren't all that different from KB's stance when we compare Priest's story and the one that gave him welts. It's quite similar in spirit that bullets in general can't kill Thor but they could leave their mark.

Like I said before, I'm no fan of the "bullet can injure class 100 characters" school, but liking something and it being false in regard to history are 2 very different things.

I guess we will have to disagree.
