Thor, being half Earth-god, should not be eating an apple to keep his immortality like a typical asgardian. This is the thing that always have me scratching my head. Thor is a hybrid god, but his whole physiology is all asgardian. The only difference between him and his countrymen is that he is so much stronger, that's it! He has same durability, same anti-Earthly disease, and many others. So what gives?? The same attribute...3x denser than normal humans, but an average asgardian is easily killed by gunfire and other concussive explosive? I want Marvel to fix this in their (pretty lame) Marvel Universe handbook when it comes to Thor and other Asgardians.

Give Thor his due! Give him half of his mothers powers like he suppose to have! I have to tell you, Thor is powerful, but he's pretty "weak" compare to other children of super beings. Example: The children of Reed and Sue, Franklin and daughter (what's her name?), she's insanely smart and we know Franklin is probably near omni-potent! Hulk's son, Skarr, he has most of the Hulk's strength, but has practically his mother's "old power" that has him drawing power from the Earth itself (Gaea should have something to say about this). Now Thor, son of Gaea and Odin, he's pretty powerful, but he should be way way much more. He's the son of elder gods! It does not give Thor justice for what he should possess! Skarr is probably able to hold his own against Thor. Franklin, heh...we know he still possess his powers. He's hiding it from his parents, but he's insanely powerful! and the daughter...she's so smart, she can probably come up with something easily to defeat Thor.

So tell me all, don't you think Marvel should give Thor is due? I think so.

I think Thor is more powerful than other Asgardians because his pops is Odin and his mother is a high ranking, primeval goddess. Whereas you could MAYBE argue that Zeus is as powerful as Odin, Hera is nowhere near Gaea, hence Thor should be considerably more powerful than Ares, imo.

That said, you don't necessarily get all of the powers of your parents. In fact, in both real myth and comics mythology the offspring of gods are almost always weaker.  Thor doesn't need additional powers, imo. He just needs to be written with god-like status in the MU.
