    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.


OK let's get this straight once and for all. Thor happens to be a Prince of an ENTIRE PANTHEON of gods. Moreover, he's probably, after Odin, the most powerful god in Asgard. In addition, standing about 6'6 and weighing more than 600 lbs. with centuries of fighting experience, and being a Natural Leader and all, he probably could pick up more girls in one day than Supes could in 20 years. Therefore, it's IMPOSSIBLE for Thor not to boast. However, the all-wise Odin, knew that power can corrupt anyone- even a god, and if Thor one day was supposed to become this agent of Order fighting Chaos- he needed to learn humility. Supes, on the other hand, is not a Prince to any throne; nor, does he have the any responsibility of fighting for the lives of gods and mortals in both planes at the same time. Problem is that many in MARVEL have NEVER, and most probably will never, recognize Thor's attributes. It's almost impossible for him not to boast.. Yet, he would easily sacrifice his life for a mere mortal, who could potentially die of just about anything; which should be unthinkable for an immortal like Thor- as Demogorge once pointed out. IMHO, Thor is a FAAAAR more interesting character than Supes, but I do respect people who thinks differently...
