...With Thor, there is only ONE proof that he is not bulletproof, the Black Panther issue, which the author already retracted (or explained as a vibranium piercing bullet). But, regardless his explanation, he admitted that he didn't know about Thor's powers and durability, and he relied only with what Kurt Busiek told him. Besides, it didn't happen in a Thor comic. That could be considered an error (wasn't in Thor comic, and the author didn't know about the character's attributes). All other evidence in a Thor issue show that he is bulletproof. Let me say it another way, the reason the Black Panther issue became so controversial was because of the bullet knockout thing. Prior to that people just assume Thor is bulletproof. I am friends with an elderly comic-store owner, and he has read a great deal of Marvel and DC comics, I asked him (with his considerable comic knowledge) if he thought Thor was not bulletproof, and he said - "No. Thor is bulletproof."

Now, i asked him about Wonder Woman, and he said that she is not. I am not trying to argue with you using a nameless person's opinion. But I really did ask him, and those are the answers he gave me. And, again, John Byrne already wrote an issue explaining WW's durability...durable against blunt attacks, but not against bullets and pointed attacks. She is not especially weakened by bullets or iron, it's the shape of the weapon (or bullet) which can cause here damage. And there are evidence to show that she is not very durable against fire and lasers. So, her durability is not similar, at all, to Thor's.

I mentioned Wonder Woman for a specific reason: To cite a character who is capable of withstanding nuclear detonations, punches from Hulk-class strength, etc. and yet be nearly killed by a bullet (as once happened). The point is that being able to resist one form of attack is not necessarily proof that a character is resistant to another-- not when there is evidence to the contrary.
