Is his lightning magic like Captain Marvel's, or is it regular lightning like Storm's?

This has often been debated.  Some say it is regular lightning summoned by magic.  Others say it is magic.  Since it can harm beings as powerful as Thor or the Hulk I would say it is a bit of both.  I would say magic summons it and it is for most part like regular lightning.  The difference is a bolt if it can be fare more powerful than a bolt of regular lightning by Thor's choosing.

Freaking magic. Tell me when a regular lighting can level a city "lorn bolt", hurt Skyfathers, KO Hulk; SS.

He also stated that he can summon lightnings 10000 times more powerful than usual.

It's magic but it has varying degrees of power depending on Thor's needs.

Yep! its Both , Thor can summon, control, Emit, & enhance regular lightning stated as up to 10,000 times as powerful normal lightning, He can also draw in/absorb into Mjolnir any ambient or directed electrical energy multiply it thousands of times & redirect it, Thor also can control/emit, summon Divine Lightning & also The first or Purest Lightning which he uses mainly against Godly or Cosmic level threats ,like Thanos, Magog, Glory(from Chaos King saga) Mystical equivalent to a Nuke.

It's regular lightning, unless Thor feels the need to enhance it.

Does anyone have scans or a source for the bold text? I'm working on something and need scans for it.
