Reply Subj: huh?  I'm not really blaming Lobo's healing factor.  He is clearly not bulletproof.

    The reason he keeps on fighting despite sustaining so many injuries is because his healing factor enables him to.  You can't really stop him because any damage he sustain, he immediately heals from it.  But he do get damaged.'s never said explicitly that he is or not bulletproof anywhere. You know because you saw it, not because it's said and explained to the reader. 

If you dismissed WW because she is explicitly said not to be impervious vs bullets, despite the fact you never needed anything explicit to see how she was reacting to bullets before that explanation came to exist, you can't say the same for Lobo is the point. Why does it matter? Because Lobo has, very often, taken no damage at all from attacks that are FAR superior to conventional  gun shots too and he too had showings (much more I agree) that show or imply he isn't impervious to some kind of other attacks like bullets and sharp weapons. It proves that resisting one kind of attack, even if it's more powerful and no weakness are explicitly mentioned, is FAR from a foolproof argumentation for any comic-book character Thor included. Hence, why Thor has VERY little actual showing that can't be easily dismissed vs bullets and sharp projectiles/blades. A nuke, or a punch from Hulk, isn't a proof Thor is bullet proof is the point.
