    < What took place in the JLA/Avengers, vs. Hulk DVD, Red Hulk, etc. should not come as a HUGE BIG surprise to anyone… What it really boils down to is the fact that they don’t like anyone to be as durable as arguably the most famous Super-Hero of all time in Superman (except for Spider Man and Batman, and perhaps the Hulk- Thor and other Super-Heroes are not quite there yet- although Marvel would NEVER let the Hulk or even the likes of Captain America who represents the good ol’ USA defeat Batman in an convincing fashion). >


    It's always amusing reading opinions from fans - with no experience in the publishing or comic business, spout silly black helicopter conspiracy nonsense without a shred of actual proof as to the motivations of these nefarious executives who somehow want to damage their own companies properties. Publishing scans from a comic book where every character`in existence has been portrayed differently is laughable when considering the original poster expects it to be taken seriously.

I don't need to have ANY experience in the comic book business to judge that something is wrong in terms of how a character is being portrayed. Heck, even Joe Quesada himself once said that Thor's fans were screwed- or something along those lines following the JLA/Avengers debacle. You really don't need to be an expert on the business side of the comic book world to accurately judge this.. If you think that someone like Batman can defeat the Hulk SO EASILY, how come he hans't lost constantly in the same fashion to villains w/o ANY Super-Powers in the Marvel Universe? Are there any illustrations to support that the Hulk has lost in the manner in the MU? Or maybe you're implying that I have to understand the business side of it; or the politics behind a wrong characterization before I make an educated guess as to why a powerful character could be so easily defeated- when in the past it has proven to be practically imposssible... You look for consisting patterns. For instance, if Thor is NOT bullet-proof then he shouldn't have survive encounters with the Hulk, Durok, Fire-Lord, the Surfer,etc.; never-mind blasts by Odin, Galactus, the Celestials, and yes, Anti-Tant Shells, Heat seeking Missiles, etc.; plus, there's no incindent indicating that Thor has been injured by regular bullets in his ENTIRE history as a Marvel Comic book Super-Hero. The ONLY bullet that hurt him was composed of vibranium that could potentially penetrate Adamantium...

Conclusion: Not STRICTLY adhering to Continuity, and bad writing because of political interest is the main cause of ALL these discrepancies and confusions for fans (new and old) in General.....
