This isn't a Thor versus who and the winner is, but rather a disappointing or false showing for Thor. I started this because Mongoose used to give Thor trouble. He's a really weird character. Not a bad character just- strange. I don't think that this should have happened.I don't see somebody like Mongoose being able to last very long against Thor. By the way, whatever happened to him anyway?

I know that a lot of people complained about Thor's takedown in Siege, but I didn't have a problem with it. Facing ALL four of the U-Foes at once is tough enough, BUT when you add Quicksilver, Sunstroke (Whoever that is.)and one or three others, I don't think that it was an unjust fight. The only one that I can think of is Mongoose. I don't know much about Zarko (Is that how you spell his name? Or is it Zarkko or Zarrko?) the Tomorrow Man, but he doesn't seem like he should be a threat to Thor either. It's inevitable that Thor has had low showings in the past. Anybody whose been used on a pervasively consistent basis is bound to. That's just the rules. Thor, Superman, Darkside. That's just what happens. But the only one that I can think of is Mongoose. Come to think of it, the Cobra used to be a big enemy of Thor's also didn't he? That sounds wrong also. But that's another topic. Or is it?: P. Merry Christmas all.

The fact that Hyde and Cobra later became Daredevil rogues shows just how far outta their weoight class they were fighting. Grey Gargoyle is a one trick pony, Thor can use any long range attack to easily take him out. Quicksand is basically the Sandman in a bikini, a truly unoriginal concept. Honestly I'd rather see Thor taking on former Heralds and spending time in space the way he used to do periodically back in the day. Thor had some pretty cool cosmic adventures and they were some of my favorite stories.
