Short end of the stick

It seems to me that over the last few years Thor has been treated worse outside his own comics than any other character in Marvel verse, save a few unfortunate villains. He has been getting the short end of the stick no matter which comic it was, except from in his own main series. It became clearly almost right off the bat that when Thor was revived and fell into JMS' capable hands, that we would not see him roaming through space again. The 80s were long gone and forgotten, and Thor would never duke it out with Ego: The Living planet or save a planet with The Silver Surfer. Not necessarily such a welcome change, but one I can understand at least.  JMS wanted the god of thunder to be involved in more trivial matters, such as socializing with regular folks and getting his own mailbox. I knew that this would not be so bad with one of the greatest writers that Marvel had to offer, at the wheel.  
 
Things were fine and dandy until Jeph Loeb came along and realized that Rulk needed a sparring partner. Logic and consistency be damned, nothing was going to stop this 2 dimensional train wrecking from taking the piss. Couple of issues later, Wolverine and Elektra are threatening the Red failure. Never fear, Frank Tieri is here! For those of you who is not familiar with this high caliber weave of tales, he is the one who challenged Garth Ennis to a pissing contest. Here Thor jumps straight off into 6 pages a issue quality against Wolverine, yes ladies and gentlemen, Thor vs Wolverine. Let's not forget Bendis' attempt at writing Thor in free comic book day Avengers, where we see Ymir suddenly appear. Now Thor has been bested off panel by Ymir, who is in possession of a redesigned Sword of Twilight. This was more a callous disregard for continuity than an actual spit in Thor's face, though it is painstakingly difficult to tell the two apart. There's another appearance in Atlas vs Avengers where it seems like he can barely handle Namorita, let alone get thrown around by The Hulk. Then there's Hulk: Let the battle begin, where Thor supposedly hit himself in the face with his own hammer five times and passed out.  Things do not stop here however, we finally arrive at Siege. Right off the bat Thor is taken down by the U-Foes and Norman Osborn. Norman Osborn's energy beams can barely take out Cyclops, Spidey and Captain America, but they drop Thor with little hassle. Never mind the immeasurable amount of punishment Thor has taken over the years, planets going asunder, standing in the sun, nuclear explosions do little harm. When Bendis is in charge, you best believe everybody's not above Cap's left hook and a shield bash.  
 
Power levels is one thing, consistency is another.
