Okay enough of these "how strong is Thor/what can his hammer do/do without his hammer" threads.

How did ComicVine's more experienced Thor fans feel about his portrayal in Earth's Mightiest Heroes? I'd say this was the best animated Thor I've seen.

I liked his EMH showings, most people were mad about his showings against the Hulk but honestly Hulk was pretty much set to WWHulk for 90% of the series while Thor was at his usual power level.

I think he was portrayed pretty good in EMH.

It makes me wonder how he will be portrayed in Avengers Assemble.

I was very happy with Thor's portrayal in EMH, he had a decent amount of awesome moments, and they did his personality well. I also liked the episodes focused on Asgard and such. Loved that show, I'm gonna miss it!

hulk is unbeatable...rarely gets beat(as usual)

thor gets jobbed (as usual)

cap and panther are portrayed well

Thor was portrayed very well for the most part. The only thing I didn't like was that he was very ignorant as to what happens on Earth. He was dumbfounded by technology in general and seemed a bit too old fashioned of a character, but it is a cartoon after all. They nailed the mythological aspect down as well as they could without angering parents or religious groups. Let's not get carried away that Thor was a weakling in the show.

He had a TON of awesome showings. The fight with Graviton was a great showing for both Hulk and Thor, without whom the others would've been squished like bugs. When the Leader infected Earth with that Gamma Bomb, Thor wasn't affected and totally toyed with an amped up Absorbing Man until using him as a projectile weapon to KO Leader. He purposely took a beating from both Absorbing Man and Abomination without flinching and then KO'ed them both. He singlehandedly made the Wrecking Crew look like buffoons. When Loki obtained the Odin Force and was nearly omnipotent, he regarded Thor as the biggest threat from any of The Avengers, including Hulk. That's only from Season 1.

Season 2 he's portrayed as their biggest powerhouse. His return to Earth singlehandedly turned the tide of the Skrull invasion, knocking the Super-Skrulls around like pests. He took the Vision's best shot when he shot like a rocket from outer-space (at 800 tons or something), knocking Thor back to Earth, and was ready to pulverize him afterward. He singlehandedly destroyed the entire Kree Army and KO'ed the Supreme Intelligence when the rest of the team couldn't do squat. Oh yeah, I forgot, he also brought Galactus to his knees in the grand finale and charbroiled one of his heralds.

Strictly as a powerhouse, the EMH cartoon treated Thor like the god he is. Moreso than many of his comic book appearances not written by Jason Aaron, JMS or Kieron Gillen.

@HaveAtThee: The only problem was no matter how great his showings were, especially the vision one, whenever they fought Hulk, he Jobbed so hard. I'm not calling for him to beat the crap out of hulk, but he literally just got swatted away by Hulk a few times. Why can't we get a fight where both look good? I think he could have defeated Galactus by himself in the last episode because they were literally doing nothing to him until thor showed up and knocked him over immediately, but then he jobs to hulk.

#35 Posted by TheGodofThunder (599 posts) - - Show Bio

@Pyrogram: What's wrong with wanting thor to show some Asgardian muscle once in awhile? Super strength is in his power set after all, so why not show it? Obviously he shouldn't only use super strength, but it does seem to be one of his attributes that is being downplayed heavily these days. In Marvel Now Avengers #1, all we see is hulk punching Thor and that is it, fight over. In issue 3 we see Hyperion tussle with Hulk. Thor and Hyperion used to be equals, but to me it seems like they are showing hyperion and Hulk as the strongest and above thor.

#36 Posted by Walker696 (984 posts) - - Show Bio

EMH vs Hulk vs...........yea EMH wins hands down. Thor had a pretty decent showing, while he did get beat up, at the same time he still got up from it all...........Hulk was far from unbeateable, didn't Widow and Hawkeye take him down.........though him with Exicutioner's axe was pretty nice. Something people have to realize is that when it comes to fighting one super strong enemy then yea Hulk is your go to guy, but when you are facing an army Thor is your best weapon. They were the Avengers in the show far as I saw they were both shown pretty well..........the Galactus thing did put Thor on top in my book though

#37 Posted by Pyrogram (40942 posts) - - Show Bio

@TheGodofThunder: He did in the show, he punched hulk for example and sent him flying, that is 1 thing... If you re-watch it you can see they did Thor justice.

I love his voice in this show.

My favourite bits are when he's been away from Earth, and then returns in big, crucial fights. That's what Thor should be like.

QFT. I loved the EMH portrayal of Thor too. His character was nailed in the show and this post demonstrates his impressive showings in the show.

#40 Posted by HaveAtThee (533 posts) - - Show Bio

Guys, they actually show him CATCHING and LOWERING the island of Manhattan back into its place. Hulk didn't do nearly anything as impressive. Thor's character was awesome in the show.

Beta Ray Bill got the drop on Thor because Thor was stunned when Bill was able to lift and wield Mjolnir. That's how BRB did it in Simonson's legendary run. No reason to cry about that.

In both of his "fights" with Hulk he's not really trying to severely harm Hulk. He gets 3-4 great shots on Hulk (even one without Mjolnir) and is the only Avenger who can realistically take him down. In the second season he's even telling Hulk that he doesn't want to hurt him while he's hitting him.

Oh yeah, and I forgot his phenomenal fights with the Frost Giants in Asgard. He shows up and trounces four of them (they were made HUGE in comparison to the movie and comics). One slams an entire building onto him and it merely stuns him. He then catches one of the swords and hurls a giant into the wall. One quick lightning storm and he barbeques them all.

One of my personal favorites is the way he owned Red Hulk. Rulky tried to lift the Statue of Liberty and Thor just swatted him away out of sight.

Once again, Thor looked GREAT in the show. If he had similar showings in the Avengers books all the street-level worshippers would whine about how "Thor is too powerful wahhh."
