    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.

I don't see the burden. An inconclusive example versus four examples of Thor or Thor-like characters taking bullets.

    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.

Kurt Busiek unequivocally said that bullets would threaten Thor's life, rather than leave welts. Many of us were willing to concede that bullets could leave welts on Thor, which is why he tended to block them. Busiek wanted none of that.
