the battle with kurse he did nothing at all when he hit him why is he not making him go flying

#2 Posted by bgibs13390 (891 posts) - - Show Bio

Kurse was stronger than Thor even in the comics. Still it was a bad showing by Thor.

@coolcat4: Because Marvel are idiots and let Chris Yost write the screenplay. He has stated his dislike for the character and everything he writes with thor, he gets his a$$ handed to him. This movie would've been way better had he not been on it.

Because If he's as powerful as MoS, he doesn't need the Avengers.

Because giving a good story is more important that just showing constant feats of strength and power for us geeks to ague over in battle threads.

I'm pretty sure every CBM character is weaker that his comic version.

From my knowledge Kurse was the Bane in Thor comics only he didn't lose on a regular basis and displayed unimaginable strength that would make Hulk hesitate.

Kurse in the comics is X4 Thor's strength. He should in fact be able to destroy Thor in any sort of physical confrontation. That said, Kurse just batting away Mjolnir was high end even for him.

i know how much stronger and that what not im just upset because he is so far below his character in the comics

Well from this showing I find Kurse could take down Hulk pretty easily as long as Jeph Loeb isn't directing.

If I recally correctly, Yost wrote Thor in Avenging Spider-Man and had him tanking Electro's anti-matter blasts that should've ripped apart Thor, but he managed to resist the blasts long enough for SpOck to capture Electro. I'm pretty sure that's one heck of a durability feat.

Now this here is a man who knows his stuff.


Good point.

@pyrogram: Just don't see a reason to bash a writer when he's provided Thor with one of his most impressive durability feats as of late ;)

Thor has never been able to physically harm Kurse. He's always been a guy Thor had to find other ways to beat because Kurse was pretty much created for the sole purpose of kicking Thor's ass, like how Doomsday was made to kill Superman.

I think the only ones that weren't are Reeves Superman (I mean he never sneezed away galaxies, but flying around the world to reverse time ..-.-) and Dr Manhattan.

@cmartin: If you were a real Thor fan you'd know that Thor himself has admitted he can't physically beat Kurse. Every single physical fight Thor has had with him since he became Kurse has gone pretty much the same as it did in the movie. Kurse beats the s**t out of Thor until another way to beat him is found.

Because the Marvel movie U hates magic and cosmic powers.

@crom_cruach: Or they were showing a spot on representation of what has happened every time Kurse and Thor have had a fist fight.

Because it'll make the Hulk look bad. And the other Avengers look worthless. = Bad for Marvel.

nah wolverin sucks in the movies

gets butt whipped in X2

gets owned by sabretooth in origins

and neither were close fights. he doesn't at all seem to be a trained warrior/assassin/ninja but just a guy with super powers

I didn't have a problem with Kurse being stronger than Thor. I look at the scene differently. Kurse beat the holy heck out of Thor and Thor walked away from that with nothing more than a few bruises and scrapes. That was an incredible feat of durability. The movie Thor is generally ill-defined in terms of raw power. He either just beats the holy heck out of hordes of people (battle scenes on Jotunheim and Vanaheim from both films come to mind, or vs. Chitauri), or he runs into a brick wall (vs. Kurse). The Thor/Hulk skirmish in Avengers was the only real moment of uncertainty as to which character has the advantage (as that scene was meant to portray, I'm sure).

Everyone is weaker in most of the hero films not just Thor. Bruce had a hard time lifting that piece of wood of himself in Batman Begins.
