@green_skaar: There's no indication as to what Thor pushed Uriel into.

That's what it seemed like, I appreciate your POV.

SPOILERS FROM Uncanny Avengers 16 and 17

Uncanny Avengers has had some good feats for Thor in the last two issues:

  • REACTION: Twirls hammer rapidly to block various magic shards from Uriel at short range (Uncanny Avengers 16)
  • MJOLNIR: Blocks Jarnbjorn, an axe capable of slaying Celestials, with Mjolnir (Uncanny Avengers 17)
  • DURABILITY: Tanks a blow from Jarnbjorn to his chest. (Uncanny Avengers 17)



The axe is specifically enchanted to cut through Celestial armour - its not like it does so by virtue of its own intrinsic cutting power so theres no partiular feat for Thor to block it or not be killed by it/

How the hell he burned his arm??? he can stand in the heart of the sun and in Surtur's essence without problems!!!

He did it in Uncanny Avengers 16 while pushing Uriel into this portal (idk) which consequently killed him so it must have been powerful:

@killemall, @dondave any idea what Thor was pushing him into?

I think it was quite obviously supposed to be a star. And before the inevitable responses come - no - the fact that Aaron recently had him fight inside a star and survive doesnt mean another writer is going to see things the same way.

He fought inside a star against Atum. - earlier than any of these.

The heat of Firelord for some time and that's>>> than a star.

Where Mjolnir was forged.

Inside Surtur's essence.

Against Gorr.

So Aaron changed things and we also can't know what kind of star is that and her heat.

@green_skaar: he means a portal to a star.

Hmm, I"ll have to reread the previous issues if there is any indication one way or another.

#109 Posted by themadsurfer (343 posts) - - Show Bio

@green_skaar: I can do the job for you. You can see in your scans that Thor apparently is spinning the hammer for no reason, he's actually opening a portal.

@fifthchild: Yeah we can't pretend that current writers care at all about character durability and continuity. Each one wants to advance his own ideas and plot and will use the character how he sees fit. Editorial mandates are much, much less stringent than in the classic era.

Does any have the scan where Malekith stated that Thor knows a little sorcery?

Mjolnir crossing what seems to be cities/country in seconds

#113 Edited by Experio (16230 posts) - - Show Bio

A bit late on the issue but here are scans from God of Thunder #19, Last days on Midgard part 1

Thor one shots a submarine while saving Agent Solomon and dives into an ocean unphased by the cold tempreture a subzero suit was said to not survive in time. Later on he effortlessly lifts and brings to the Earth the largest mountain in Jotunheim. This should be an indication that he still possesses his strength shown decades ago

Has Thor ever survived a nova or a supernova?

Online
#115 Edited by Experio (16230 posts) - - Show Bio

@themadsurfer: He has. When the Destroyers Axe released an energy equal to an exploding sun(=Nova), he has a long list in his history of easily surviving both extreme cold and hot temperatures while his durability and healing factor keeps him up, this feat is on the top of the list when it comes to the heat side.

@themadsurfer: That was an illusion, Thor and Drax never really saw a Nova in the Infinity series.

#120 Posted by unBREAKable_Fs4 (1790 posts) - - Show Bio

@experio: I'm a little curious.I haven't read the issue but is the mountain Thor lifts that thing in the last scan? If so is there any indication of weight considering it doesn't exactly look to be bigger than a house. Thanks

#121 Edited by Experio (16230 posts) - - Show Bio

@unbreakable_fs4: The last and second last scan show a glimpse of the mountain and what his lifting is the minimum edge for presumably greater balance. As the context explains, many of Earths ice's were melting due to Global warming and Dario Agger (CEO of an energy corporation called Roxxon) took the job of bringing a small chunk to Alaska which is one of the areas lacking

Notice the line segment differentiating the two parts, keeping in mind its position from the settlement and hill, then Thor arrives after knocking out a frost giant claiming he took it from one of their territories, as shown he throws it opposite to the hellicarrier but again only little is shown. But after Agger leaves you get a much better look of the mountain identified in the background

An estimation of 200,000 tons? Maybe bigger.

One must be a millionaire to by a house that big

This investigation required alot of matching scans with scans cause there were two other mountains presented in the background throughout the comic which had to be taken out of the picture by a finding a unique aspect, and there were only 3 scans with Thor's mountain on it and this is the only one that can be quantified but not approximately.

#122 Posted by unBREAKable_Fs4 (1790 posts) - - Show Bio

@experio: Impressive and thanks. Also do you know what comic that scan is from?

#123 Edited by Experio (16230 posts) - - Show Bio

@unbreakable_fs4: No worries, all the scans are from Thor God of Thunder #19 - Last days of Midgard part 1.

@experio: I knew that art was familiar lol. I'm still stuck on issue 12 of the comic.

@unbreakable_fs4: Ribic's one of the finest artists working in Marvel as of now, its great to have him do Thor.

And you're currently on one of the greatest stories to ever be written for the Odinson, take your time reading it.

#126 Posted by unBREAKable_Fs4 (1790 posts) - - Show Bio

@experio: Agreed, and I definitely will

#127 Posted by themadsurfer (343 posts) - - Show Bio

@experio: The largest mountain of all Jotunheim is for sure heavier than 200.000 tons . They simply don't show a nice picture of the mountain simple as that. If you see previous issues Thor offered to take an iceberg out of the way and that Iceberg seemed much bigger than this mountain, and a mountain especially the largest of Jotunheim is bigger than any huge Iceberg.

#128 Posted by Experio (16230 posts) - - Show Bio

@themadsurfer: I do believe it weighs more and I did originally plan to quantify the mass of the mountain through comparison by looking for an even larger mountain in Jotunheim from previous books but this method seemed more reliable. Is there any chance you have the scan of the iceberg?

#129 Edited by themadsurfer (343 posts) - - Show Bio

@experio: Sorry I don't have it, but the issue is "Thor: God of Thunder #12" and if you see it you must realize that we can only see 1/10 of an iceberg.

dont be suprised if the next issue we see all of just 2 panels of Thor vs the big g and young Thor's storyline in this arc. Aaron is good at trollin lol, got me good with this issue.

Don't get me wrong. The few panels of the fight were intense and breath taking and gave both sides much respect

@phisigmatau: I have high expectations for the fight between King Thor and Galactus, anything on the level of 2 panels will have me send Aaron unpleasant mails:P

@phisigmatau: @themadsurfer: Spoilers from God of Thunder #20

Their confrontation was mostly talk, but at-least its not 2 panels. I'm sure the next issue will show alot more action, and judging from the scans I think its safe to say King Thor isn't gonna win. As good as tanking a blast from Galactus is, he could hardly climb a cliff without Mjolnir, don't know how much of a role the Thor-force will play.

Here's an Omni-directional Blast from Avengers Thor

He did (for like 5-10 seconds), the writer confirmed it.

You can see him throwing his hammer at the phoenix it falls down to a nearby planet, "wakes up" a couple of seconds later engulfing the planet in flames.

Keep in mind the scans are in the wrong order, they are reversed.
