Subj: The point of Hulk vs was not Thor learning how to be a hero from Banner...

Reply Subj: Why is it just about every non-comic Thor story I can think of features Thor learning a lesson in "humility?"

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.


...throughout the movie, Thor was a hero. He never waivered, never hesitated, even after the Hulk almost killed him during their first encounter. It was Thor working overtime to stop the mindless Hulk. And what did Banner do that was so "heroic"? At first, he was too afraid (or unwilling) to merge again with the mindless was only when push came to shove, in order to save Thor, that Banner reluctantly did the right thing. Meh. Banner learned what it's like to be a true hero from Thor.
