Logic

#1 Posted by joshmightbe (24695 posts) - - Show Bio

First let me make it perfectly clear that I'm content with Thor's current power level and am by no means suggesting that he should be made more powerful than he is. That being said, logically he should actually be vastly more powerful than he is due to simple genetics. His father Odin was already a Skyfather at the time of Thor's birth and Thor's mother is Gaea who is an Elder Goddess so if we were being 100% logical (in a world where people like Thor actually exist) He should be atleast the equal of the Silver Surfer if not better.  
 
Just to reiterate, I do not believe that thor is this powerful nor do I want him to be, this is totally hypothetical so please don't freak out I'm just stating a thought

Yeah now that you said that he should be far stronger than Odin due to what you said.

@GTG12: Well I believe the Elder gods are above skyfathers so the boost actually comes more from his mother than Odin, especially while he's on Earth since his mother is pretty much the living essence of the planet

Yeah he should probably be far stronger.

@GTG12: For the sake of interesting stories I completely understand why he's not but if I wasn't a Thor fan and was looking at it from a purely logical perspective then yes he should be damn near unstoppable

But isnt this just like saying the son of a martial artist and a body builder should be a better fighter than them both?

@spiderbat87: Well thats different Martial arts and body building aren't part of your DNA like the powers of Odin and Gaea are and I'm not saying he should be more powerful than his mother because quite frankly Odin's DNA would probably be holding him back from elder god level power

@joshmightbe:  
 
i agree completely, sometimes it's just ridiculous how they make thor weak on some occassions, and strong on others, it's kind of the same with Superman actually

@The Stegman: Don't get me wrong I don't want Thor to become unstoppable or anything but you're right he should have more consistency in his powers

Odin Already said Thor would be More Powerful then Him if he ever reached his full potential and Mastered his Vast Latent Mystical Abilities.

Yup, Thor should be more powerful than he is currently depicted. Certainly more powerful than the Silver Surfer.

Thor, because of his elemental powers and hammer, has always been more powerful than Hercules, despite Hercules being stronger. :P
