    ... Thor was originally created by Stan Lee,.. To be stronger than the hulk. Period. Point Blank. End of story.

If you read the entire passage, he talks about making someone stronger than the strongest man, smarter than the smartest person, etc. Unless you also want to claim Stan created Thor to be smarter than Reed, Banner, and Stark, in context he isn't necessarily saying he created Thor to be stronger than the Hulk; he's simply recounting some of the dilemmas he faced in creating a new character that would excite fans.

Now there is a brief window where maybe Thor was stronger than Hulk, based on Hulk failing to pull Mjolnir out of his hand, but that window was closed quickly. By Stan himself.

Stan was recounting how he wanted to top his strongest creation, so he created a character based on a "god", supposedly stronger than the strongest mortal (hulk). Reed was not mentioned, at all.

When did Stan "quickly" closed the window for Thor? Thor 319? Again, the Hulk had to hostage a girl just to get Thor to throw away the hammer. That's pretty much established. You mean how Hulk "pummeled" Thor? yeah, after he got sucker punched. But the Hulk still failed to get the KO, and when thor's hammer returned, Thor, instead of using it against the Hulk, threw it again and challeneged the Hulk. I think that is pretty badass. It didn't really settle anything. If the Hulk has had a clear advantage over Thor, it's the more recent fights...but definitely not by Stan Lee.
