Wolverine already tried , and failed , to slash through Thor's skin when he was hallucinating that Thor was Sabretooth . I'd say it's a safe bet to assume that under a non-PIS scenario , Wolverine should be incapable of cutting the hide of any top-tier hero barring someone like the Hulk .

Okay , I was browsing around reading articles about reliability of IQ tests and came across something called PISA(Programme for International Student Assessment) . Supposedly it's the academic equivalent of the Olympics . When conducted in 2009 , the Chinese literally stomped the test , with the Shanghai province scoring the highest despite taking part in the test for the first time .
Here are a few quotes from an Indian article detailing the test's results :
"More than one-quarter of Shanghai's 15-year-olds demonstrated advanced mathematical thinking skills to solve complex problems, compared to an OECD average of just 3%," noted the analysis.
Compared to this , the 2 Indian states which also participated in this test(Tamil Nadu and Himachal Pradesh) ranked 2nd and 3rd respectively from the bottom .
In math, considered India's strong point, the states finished second and third last, beating only Kyrgyzstan; the English test threw up the same result. Girls were better than boys and science results were the worst, where Himachal stood last. TN was slightly better and finished third from bottom. The average 15-year old Indian is over 200 points behind the global topper.
Experts estimate that an Indian class VIII student is at the same level as a South Korean class III student in math abilities or a class II student from Shanghai when it comes to reading skills.
These are the test results from 2009 :
Subsequently , India has refrained from taking part in both 2012 tests and upcoming 2015 tests . According to India's education ministry , the poor performance can be attributed to a "sociocultural" disconnect between the questions and Indian students .
Does this surprise anyone ? I thought Indians were supposed to be pretty good at math , physics and programming . Guess I was wrong .
Isn't @saren an Indian native ? I'd like to hear his and any other Indian posters' thoughts and opinions about all of this .
The way I see it , every single thread across the battle forums is either a rehash or a variant of previously existing thread .
Darkseid vs Thanos ? Done . So people resort to making all sorts of variants , most of which too are getting rehashed or at worse , duplicated .
Same goes for the countless iterations of Thanos vs Hulk , Superman vs Hulk , Superman vs Wonder Woman , Wonder Woman vs Thor , Thor vs Superman , Superman vs Silver Surfer , Batman vs Captain America , Supergirl vs Wonder Woman , Thor vs Silver Surfer , Galactus vs Odin , Galactus vs the Anti-Monitor , Green Lantern vs Quasar and the list goes on and on , all the way to the Andromeda galaxy .
I think it's high time that people either start coming up with new ideas(yeah , good luck with that) or just abandon a forum which has become the embodiment of "seen it all and done it all" . I'll be doing the latter , and anyone else who wants to join me is more than welcome .
Or better still , the mods and admins of this site realize how one of the main attractive features of comicvine is qualitatively stagnating , and do something about it .
BTW has everyone read the Thor comic in question? He takes some hits and gives some hits that redefine his durability to me.
Various Blasts from Galacticus
A hit so hard it goes through the earth and into the Moon (which Thor shrugs off).
Breaks Galacticus's thumb
Makes Galacticus vomit
Knocks Galacticus down
I wasn't a big Thor fan until I read this comic Lol. He made a believer out of me. I don't think anyone less powerful than Galacticus could stop Thor in this version. (Though that statement might start a flame war lol)
That was a hungry Galactus from an alternate future , and even Thor's granddaughters were giving him trouble while Thor was busy collecting the Necro-Sword .
Why would you bother to leave out such an important bit of context is beyond me .
Franklin or Legion stomp . Most other mutants would be canon fodder for regular Thor , let along Old King Thor .
Galactus got stomped by that huge nameless Celestial, but I don't know how strong he is compared to TOAA
It was merging of multiple rogue Celestials , and these same Celestials had exterminated a council of supergeniuses who wielded Infinity Gauntlets and Ultimate Nullifiers as is these were everyday handguns .
