    I guess in the end what I'm saying is I think both you and I agree Thor has learned some humility. We just disagree on whether or not he needs to learn more. I have no problem for reasons discussed with his boasting. Compared to most gods he is humble, it is not a trait of his society, he can back up what he says, he usually doesn't always throw it in everybody's face since he does not demand worship, and as Fifthchild pointed out due to his background it is too be expected. I don't really see it as needing more humility. Unless I'm misreading what you are saying you seem to. Nothing wrong with that.

I don't think it's bad for a character to be a bit arrogant or even VERY arrogant. It gives characters flavor. So in a sense, I don't think there is much need for Thor to become humble if you ask me. I think Thor would be duller has a humble guy. I answered what I did because you asked why writers could only think of teaching Thor lessons in humility. His personality trait (not humble) associated with his origin (god) is why I think it's easier for writer to do so. I do not say that I agree or not. I just say that I think it's why so many exploit that angle.
