The best, I don't know! But fighting the Hulk to a standstill during an hour is not bad at all! :) (Avengers-Defenders War)

and Now tanking PF attacks.

To be honest his durability over the years has been inconsistent. 
He takes some great his one month and then the next he gets tackled down by much less the next. 
Yes I am aware this happens to most characters...but as of late this occurs to Thor more often than most.

@Kallarkz: @Thor's hammmer: @jeanroygrant:

It makes no sense, one day he's tanking attacks from reality warpers, next day he gets owned by Rulk with his own hammer in space.

Completely stupid, IMO.

@eaeyomi:

Thor busting a machine that housed many dozens of stars, and easily surviving the blast, which means he can tank the force of dozens of Supernovas at once.

here are my favorites:

Thor survived inside Surtur´s essence.

Thor survived a supernova.

Thor survived another solar explosion and the neutron star bomb.

Thor inside the sun,Thor survived the Kang bomb with just scratches; and other favorite, Thor fought Malekith with a liver of glass and still stomped him.

This are my favorites, Thor absorbing the Godbomb, fought and survived the Celestials blast.

There are other like when he was the only one to ensdure the casket of ancient winters, Hold the Hulk for an hour, or the gem of infinite suns but well this are my favorites.

All those amazing feats and now he gets his arm cut off by an axe? Wow. And people have the gall to ask why I HATE aaron with a passion.

@thunderingthorfan: Thor himself enchanted the axe to be able to cut through Celestial armor. I agree though, the most the axe should've been able to do is cut him or be lodged into his shoulder, not cleanly cut off his arm. This is where Marvel editors suck hard. For instance:

Apocalypse, a character infinitely stronger than Malekith, threw Jarnbjorn back at Thor full speed, and the axe lodged into his shoulder. Mere seconds later, Thor pulled the axe out and proceeded to strike Apocalypse, destroying his Celestial armor.

I agree that Malekith should be able to wound Thor with a weapon that is of Asgardian origin and enchantment, but the whole one-arm trick is (IMO) is exactly that. Aaron probably figured it "looks cool" for Thor to have a metallic arm. I really enjoyed the first 24 issues of God of Thunder, but the only thing I never thought was logical was that fact that Thor would get his arm cut off and never get it back (hence King Thor in his story having a Destroyer arm).

@haveatthee: Agreed. Further, and I may be overstepping my ground here by asking that a writer know the work of his predecessors, when King thor lost his arm in the Jurgens run (cuz yeah he was there before Aaron used him) his then wife Amora told him to fix his arm. But thor refused. So why in hell does OKT not fix it if it's clearly in his power to do so?! He's clearly egotistical so he would want to look as powerful as possible. Yet he walks one armed looking all weak and vulnerable and giving Malekith the biggest claim to fame that he marked him like no other ever has!!! To me the destroyer arm looks stupid and is a HUGE vulnerability because dumb writers, like some we have now, will have it yanked off by hulk or whoever and proceed to have him beat with it for shock effect. I want his arm back like yesterday!!!

@thunderingthorfan: I agree. Seems so many writers now are looking to name a Big Statement that will assure their lasting legacy.
Aaron is attempting a 2-fer via Political Correctness -- a She Thor, and making Odinson a handicapped superhero.
Nothing wrong about awesome female superheroes, or one with a physical malady with which they have to accommodate and persevere the way Aaron is doing it is so...contrived.

@spykat: true. But make a new superhero to inflict this damage to. I don't want the Thor I grew up with handicapped. All due respect to our great wounded heroes but I guarantee you that none of them would want a prosthetic leg or arm instead of their real one just to demonstrate their strength of character and ability to adapt. So why would you do that to a hero let alone a god?! They keep talking about "humanizing" and I'm stuck going then why are you writing superhero comics?? This is about beings that are above and beyond us. That's why I read them. If they're afflicted with normal human problems then Id rather not read them. I have daily newspapers and the Internet for that.

The only way that would be cool is if it was a hero or heroine who was born handicapped. Then you'd see how they became so special having the disadvantage from the get go. And really, I think we're giving too much credit to Aaron with this. He didn't mean for handicapped people to feel represented; he just wanted to glorify his crummy imposter at Thor's expense.

@thunderingthorfan: Oh yes, definitely new superhero to ply this to -- and esp. not Thor.

I personally don't see why people are moaning about Thor having a BADASS METAL ARM MADE OUT OF DESTROYER ARMOUR. I mean...he can probably hit HARDER with that hand now if anything.

agree. that arm is badass and make a link for King Thor. the real issue is the unworthiness of Thor... that is what made all the fans of Thor including me mad.

@mjolnirson: well a fake arm is a glaring reminder of weakness. The fact he even got it cut off makes him look like a complete weakling and loser. That's why I don't want it. My THOR loses to, and is hurt by, no one. Plus it really looks stupid. I don't get where anyone thinks it looks cool. Makes him look like a cyborg. Not to mention, and I have made this point now ad nauseam, it's a hollow fake detachable arm. Everybody and their mother will rip it off and beat him with it to show how badass they are. And he won't hit harder with it since its not his strength hitting anymore. It's the destroyer. Then you'll hear the "oh he won because of the destroyer arm. It wasn't him. If it was his arm he would've lost!" BS all over the place. Look at how they've humiliated him with the hammer! Further, For a KING THOR who has the power to regrow his arm not to do so is ludicrous.

first: he never grew his arm again because its a warrior and that is a "medal" if you want it for a warrior. Then Thor is tough he is goddamn tough, but he can be pierced by certain objects like Wolverine claws, Desak's sword, the Necrosword;and excepting the Necrosword all of those weapons are less than Jarnbjorn. he was pierced by Apocalypse but it was a hit in his chest. where have more muscle more bone, its a more durable part of the body... Thor can be impaired and even more if it´s a goddam Celestial killer axe. Then they way that his arm was removed it´s cool too; man we all know that Thor can rip off the arm of a frost giant, however if you pay attention to the comic they get a massive upgrade of power, they can frost stars... and in one number it´s said that they are in their prime because one storm... i mean if they get that upgrade they are not the normal enemies that even the Thing can defeat, they are are real threat... the destroyer arm it´s cool... and he is not indestructible as i said before that doesn't make him weak just real even for a god... in the Odinism the Aesir can't die because the time but because battles... and they can lose parts of their bodies as Tyr... i understand it, the worthless part is a kick in the nuts... for Odin and for Thor and the woman Thor (however the comic is good), but again... he losing his arm doesn't make him weak or lame. and make a link with the King Thor who is a badass in any sense

Well sorry to break to you,as powerful as Thor is, he's been hurt and defeated by quite a few people,and straight up had his ass beaten by a handful ( Some of them are results of really bad writing/PIS i.e Rulk but there have still been legit,plausible cases). Dudes not completely invulnerable,I actually like that he's had his arm cut off, it shows even the strongest/most powerful characters can be humanized and left permanently scarred. Physically or otherwise.

@mjolnirson: @sophisticated_ignorance: well then stop reading fiction. I read fiction to see things that don't happen to puny humans. Dismemberment is ok for spiderman and wolverine and their ilk. But not for the top tier powerhouses. I don't want that kind of "humanization." He is a god. A freaking alien is more indestructible than a warrior god?! Ridiculous. If that's the case, Kangs bomb should've dismemebered him too as he was at ground zero when it detonated. Tyr is a wuss. He's also not half elder God which should make Thor more physically powerful than Odin himself. So Tyr and ares don't apply here as they are beneath thor in hierarchy.

The apocalypse thing makes no sense. He is a class 100+ so with the force he threw the axe at young thor(who is not as physically strong as mature Thors body is) it should've sliced straight through to his back and killed him. Since as you say it killed a celestial. So there goes that argument. Malekith is not powerful. Especially not physically. So no matter how strong the axe is, the end results should've been reversed with the arm slightly cut and the chest completely pierced through to the core. Bad writing. I can't wait til another writer comes in and retcons the arm. OKT is ok. I'd rather be become RKT. Then no one can f---- with him. And yes, I ONLY respect honor and power. Of which Thor, to me, is the greatest representative.

Ok first don't tell me to stop reading fiction, everybody here reads fiction for different reasons,respect that.

Secondly, Gods in Marvel aren't really the type of Gods we speak of IRL, obviously, the only TRUE God like figure in Marvel is TOAA...the term "God" in Marvel is basically just a term for any immortal ancient race...don't mean they can't and shouldn't be liable to injuries...freaking Ares got ripped in half by The Sentry.Thor has been smacked around by Earthings and aliens, it happens.Regarding Aliens,which one are you referring to? Superman? Superman is DCs #1 guy,well arguably,so of course hes going to job less than Thor.Its stupid to compare how Supes and Thor get treated. They're not on the same level of prestige, sorry to say.

"I ONLY respect honor and power" lmao dude do you hear yourself? I can't take you seriously.
