    Jurgens wrote Thor with respect even if most of his fights were like a Hulk Hogan wrestling match. Thor would be on the ropes in the initial encounter...

Either you have an exciting fight, with a legit tough opponent where Thor is in danger of defeat, OR you have a one-sided squash.

    and then state he was tired of holding back and kick the villain's ass, he did this over and over.

I don't recall the epic fights with the Destroyer, Perrikus, The Enchanters, Mangog, Thanos, Gladiator or Desak going down like that. Perhaps I am remembering them wrong.

    I think current marvel has a lot of writers who didn't grow up reading or liking Thor. I remember a few years ago in Avengers vs X-Men, Thor lost month after month against a Phoenix force X-Man. It got so redundant, it was downright absurd. Thor certainly doesn't get to be the hero to save the day like in the old times.

Political agenda.

    The decompression style of story telling is a tough pill to swallow. It's like going to a restaurant and getting a plate full of garnish and when the main course finally arrives, it's a 2 oz. steak that's overcooked and a crunchy baked potato. You probably don't walk away feeling like you got your money's worth.

IMO comic stories should be a mix of 1, 2 or 3 issue lengths, not 6, 8 or 12.

Save 140+ page stories for the summer crossover or graphic novels.

You address Omnipotence...tread carefully.
