The reason why Thor seems to lose fights is simply because he's trying not to kill them. He holds back much of his power. But what I like about Thor and the Marvel U is that anyone can be beaten at any time including Thor. I also like the fact that Thor can't do everything by himself like Superman. Why does Superman need a justice League when he's as fast as the flash, smart as Batman, can change time, can defeat any god, can do the impossible. Simply boring. Thor struggles with adversity from his family, friends, allies, enemies, and prophesies. How would you like it if your father stripped you of your power and banished you. How about knowing your mother is alive but didn't care to raise you. Also, your Brother is evil and wants to destroy you. Yet you still love them all. These are interesting issues. Yes many Thor writers wrote him weaker than he actually is but was the story a good one? if it was then I don't have a problem with it. In my book Thor is still undefeated. When Thor doesn't hold back, the Hulk gets knocked out halfway to the moon, Arishem the celestial falls, Annhilus flees, even Galactus flees, planets are destroyed, the Fate weave is destroyed, and the Infinites hear him.
Roku, I agree with everything you say. I have no arguments with anything you said. I just want to see Thor portrayed correctly and fairly, if that makes sense.
