Is their anything The God of Thunder can't handle?
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.
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
@gravitypress: Could you mention one of those multiple times?Avengers 211, 219, 220
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.
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.
