I know that is the big thing for Thor about why he was sent to Earth, but it feels like in just about every story to center around him where he is not putting in a guest appearence is about Thor learning humility.

Thor Film -- Thor being humbled. Makes sense due to this being Thor revealed to the public at large.

Avengers: EMH -- Thor and the rest of Asgard learning humility by being saved by the Avengers and paying homage to them.

Next Avengers: Thor being a deadbeat dad and his daughter being abandoned on Earth to learn humility.

Hulk vs -- Thor learning how to be a true hero from Banner.

Thor: Tales of Asgard -- Thor learning humility and to grow up.

Comics -- Many one-shots and side stories over the years.

I know in some of these instances are necessary, but in anything outside of comics it feels like we only get "awesome Thor" for one episode guest appearences. Everything else is him learning some lesson in humility.

thoughts?

I can agree with your assessment. In all the stories that have existed since '62, you would think that he would have learned his lesson by now. I'm kinda of getting tired of this as a plot device.

I would rather Thor go the Conan route. Conan was honorable and noble in his own right, but he would f*ck you up six ways to Sunday if you got in his grill. I think Fraction was trying to do this with his portrayal lately, but I can't be sure. I don't mind Thor having a bit more bite and edge to him. I mean, if I want to read about a boy-scout with a stick up his ass, I'll drop Thor and go read Superman.
