    As I am sure you recall The Wrecker's debut in Thor #148. Considering he got his power from Karnilla, who was in the process of restoring ("hastily" as the story goes) Loki to his full capacity (typical Asgardian attributes), Wrecker became augmented physiologically to withstand .45 caliber firepower in addition to lifting 40 tons (pre sharing with the Crew). This comes from the same OHMU that you refer to.

    Now, if Wrecker can withstand .45 caliber bullets with typical Asgardian attributes ala Loki, don't you think that a god that is half Asgardian/half Elder God should be totally resistant to that and above? I mean really, a mortal becomes "bulletproof" when given Asgardian power,but a REAL ASGARDIAN isn't. REALLY?????

The Wrecker has a mystic aura that prevents bullets from hitting him.

    As for the early part of last thirty years, Comics were under the thumb of the Comic Code Authority and "had to play ball" if they wanted their product on the racks. Other than Superman and Wonder Woman and their "bulletproof/defelection" thing, who "DC" established long before the CCA came into existence, Stan and Marvel had to watch the "violence" quotient and how gun play was handled. Things really did not loosen up until the late 70's/ early 80's and by then it was just assumed that Thor was bulletproof.

That doesn't stand up under any degree of scrutiny. The CCA didn't prevent Marvel from having other characters shot at or shown to be bulletproof.
