I agree. I've always like Thor (at least when they don't write him "cheesy").

But why does his new costume have quilted sleeves and pant legs? At least they're going back to making the "medallions" on his costume actual, functioning pieces of metal and not just painted on circles. I hope he comes back with a load of post-Ragnarok badassness.

I kind of like the Armor. I didn't at 1st but it makes him more Norse like.

I would like to quote Manowar right about now.

Black clouds on the horizon

Great thunder and burning rain

His chariot pounding, I heard the heavens scream his name

I watched as he shouted

To the giants who died that day

He held up his hammer high and called to Odin for a sign

Thor the mighty, Thor the brave

Crush the infidels in your way

By your hammer let none be saved

Live to die on the final day

Gods, monsters and men

We'll die together in the end

God of thunder, God of rain

Earth shaker who feels no pain

The powerhead of the universe

Now send your never ending curse

I watched as he shouted

To the giants who died that day

He held up his hammer high and called to Odin for a sign

Thor the mighty, Thor the brave

Crush the infidels in your way

By your hammer let none be saved

Live to die on that final day

Gods, monsters and men

We'll die together in the end

Swing your hammer to crack the sky

Lift your cape so that you might fly

Back to Odin and the gods on high

And leave the mortal world

Thor the mighty, Thor the brave

Crush the infidels in your way

By your hammer let none be saved

Live to die on that final day

Gods, monsters and men

We'll die together in the end

Odin

yeah that guys has a point your suppose to point the great things hes done like help marvel defeat onslaught by going through his armor....or however it went.

#27 Posted by King_Thor (96 posts) - - Show Bio

So... 
 
With respect to Thor.  Stan Lee, when EIC of Marvel comics, always referred to Thor as Marvel's most powerful superhero.  He seemed to be represented as such by Marvel comics long after Stan moved on to greener pastures.  Until the JLA/Avengers crossover.  What do you guys think about the outcome of his fight with Superman (particularly when you factor in Superman's weakness to magic, ie, being cut by a magic tiara, pierced by a magical arrow...)?  Do you guys still think Marvel respects Thor the way he should be respected.  In my personal opinion, Marvel seems to have inadvertantly promoted the Silver Surfer as their new top dog.  How much is Joe Quesada to blame for Thor's showing in the JLA/Avengers crossover? 
 
Thoughts?

Thor respect thread, eh?  To bad we can't get the editors at Marvel comics to feel the same as us, right?  I don't think where Thor is today is where Stan Lee, his creator, meant for him to be.  He was created by Stan Lee to be Marvel's most powerful superhero.  Jim Shooter who took over after Stan Lee stepped down as EIC, shared Stan's vision of Marvel's most powerful superhero being Thor.  It was because of Jim Shooter's courageous stand that the original suggestion for a JLA/Avengers crossover was shot down.  Why?  Because Shooter would not allow Thor to be defeated by Superman in a comic book.  Period.   Superman can be cut by a magic tiara or pierced by a magic arrow...but can't be hurt by a being whose very essence is mystical in nature and whose weapon is forged of magic....and who is just as strong?  Whatever.  JLA/Avengers crossover stunk of politics.  I mean we read comics to get away from all that baloney.  Why do I have to eat a chunk of it while reading my favorite comic book?
 
Oh how the mighty have fallen since then.  Superman fanboy Tom Breevort himself, under the less than illustrious Joe Quesada regime, was the main proponent of Superman beating Thor in the JLA/Avengers crossover.  And it is under Quesada's oversight that we now see Thor getting molly whopped by people like the Iron Patriot and the U-Foes.  What a bunch of horse puckey.  It's obvious to me that current Marvel editorial doesn't share that early vision of Stan Lee/Jim Shooter.  Hey...I say give Marvel what it is they are wishing for and stop reading Thor.  They don't want to write him the way he should be written, in essence that is what they are asking for right?  I say don't spend another penny on Thor.  Sorry, people, the Thor vision is gone.  Time to find a new favorite superhero.

Thor was intended to be Marvel's most powerful overall hero.  I like that idea.  I think Marvel would do well to return to practicing it.
The Hulk and Hercules can be stronger.  The Juggernaut can be more invulnerable.  Captain America can be more highly respected.  

Adam Warlock and Dr. Strange can be wiser.  The Thing can be tougher.  Spider-Man can be easier to identify with.  Wolverine can be cooler. 
The Punisher can be more driven.  The Silver Surfer can be more cosmic.  BUT NO OTHER HERO should ever be more powerful overall than THOR!

Not Phoenix.  Not the Silver Surfer.  Not Dr. Strange.  Not Black Bolt.  Not the Scarlet Witch.  Not the Sentry.  No one.  Not ever.

@PowerHerc: 
 
I would be alright with phoenix being more powerful than him because it's not jean grey's power it's her tapping a multiversal force  
 
but I agree Thor is kind of marvels superman he should be the most powerful so in the word's of Ironman "Thor is the greatest avenger." 
 
in the words of rick jones "Thor is greatest warrior."
