Thors Weaknes.

Is their anything The God of Thunder can't handle?

He has no traditional weakness like Superman and Kryptonite. He would probably have a rough time with a skilled telepath.

no having the his hammer in his hand

Wrong.  That's only a weakness from v1 when he was still bound to Donald Blake back then and after he was bonded to Jake Olson's body, in v2, and that was only for a time until their bonding was seperated.  He does not have that weakness anymore.

Classic Thor in the comics used to have the 60 second weakness. If Thor was separated from his hammer for more than 60 seconds he would transform back into a mortal man 
 
Current Thor doesn't really have weakness if he did have one maybe its that he's a brute, arrogant and comes with this kind of beef cake stupidity. He could do a lot better if he thought his battles out or learned to use his magical skills but Thor prefers the powerhouse method to dealing with problems. Loki, Doom, Osborn etc often make Thor look foolish

Yeah, the whole arrogant persona is suppose to be his weakness.  This is why Loki will always be his classic, original nemesis - the trickster who lacks muscle but has the brain to outsmart Thor.  Although to be honest, since his return a few years back he seems less headstrong to me at times.  I don't think it will last forever though.  A wise, cautious Thor would be almost too powerful.

@Ry Fryy:  I think he is like that because he remembers everything that happened while he was king/ rune thor so he didn't just randomly lose all of the wiseness (if that's a word) after coming back to life

He's pretty much just a warrior. So any one stronger than him can defeat him, in any category. Though he is called a god, in the Marvel Universe, that just means an immortal warrior

@Deadcool: Moondragon has controled him in Avengers multiple times.

Jim Shooter is the writer in the three issues... 
I have a personal rule in feats, could you post more examples, with different writers please?... 
If not too much truoble...

Thor is not immune to telepathy, he is just very resistant. Examples would support both notions, because telepathy is not an on and off switch, it requires finesse and context and circumstance. Telepathy may be employed aggressively, passively, for control, to harm, to confuse, to disorientate, it may be applied with great effort or little effort. All these things all add up for different effects and results.  
 
Main point here, is it depends what one means when they consider rough time. Arguably Thor doesn't have too much difficulty with telepaths. Arguably a very, very good telepath concentrating hard enough on a day Thor might have a sore stomach or a throat infection might prove quite a threat to him? Eh how knows, up to the writer at the time. He has to be neutralized somehow now and then. Its not like making Thor feed someone grapes telepathically is the same as making Thor smash his own hammer into his head telepathically and this applies to all characters to some degree.

Thor and  Asgard age and can get weaker that way. 
Unlike the immortal Olympians.

This is interesting...Thor is my favorite Marvel character and I believe that he might not have a weakness to any element.  Much like Balder, but I think it comes from his Mother.

@Deadcool: Lol I could try but it will take some time.

@Deadcool: My Avengers collection is far from complete. Those are all I could find.

@gravitypress
I have a personal rule, a feat with a fictional character is only canon, if it happens at least three times with different writers... 
That is the way I pick the scans to post...

@Deadcool: Many feats given to a character here at CV have been done less than 3 times.

@gravitypress

Oh well, What can I do?... 
I think that most of the people accept what they want, even if is impossible accept all the feats of a(n Inconsistent) fictional character, there are people that do...

Thors weaknesses is also his greatest strength: Mjolnir 
With Mjolnir Thor is granted the ability to fly, have finer control over the weather, energy blasts, etc. 
Without it: He is unable to fly and relies almost mostly on physical forms of combat. 
 
Also, if Mjolnir is ever damaged or destroyed Thor will die. 
This fact is overlooked by many.  
Thor had his hammer fixed by Doctor Strange and he was told that if his life is now bound to the hammer. 
If Thor were to go up again against a skyfather level character like Bor was he would be wise to keep his hammer safe.
