    And I'm pretty sure that the scene with Mjolnir is supposed to reference its unwieldability rather than Thors strength. The expanded scene from JIM112 also makes it look more like this IMO.

In the original, Hulk's shocked that Thor is able to prevent him from taking Mjolnir away when it was both of his hands against one of Thor's. When Thor releases the hammer, he calls it a test of strength. Just at face value, it does seem Stan may have intended Thor to be stronger in that scene. But the next time Hulk appears, it's said that only Mjolnir could match him and the time after that (FF #25, which features Thor as well) Stan's narration calls the Hulk the most powerful creature on Earth.

    Thats interesting. Ive been wondering for a while when the first time that might have happened. Its interesting reading the first Vol of Esssential Hulk and seeing the character gradually evolve towards the familiarish Savage Hulk incarnation.

It's the Thing who says the Hulk is getting stronger. I believe the first time Hulk says his strength increases is in Tales To Astonish #59. Send me a PM on HC if you don't have the issue and would like a scan.
