One of the common questions regarding Thor on almost every comic web site I've ever been on is why Thor isn't written to his potential? Who is stronger, Hulk or Thor? Is Thor a planet buster? And on and on.
In large part, I would have to say the editor/writer has a lot to do with how any given character is portrayed.
Unquestionably, Stan Lee, loved the character of Thor. He was the one who borrowed from Norse mythology when creating the comic character we all know and love today. And there was no question in his mind who Marvel's most powerful superhero was; his very direct answer to that question from a reader who wrote in was indicated at the end of Thor #4....Thor!!
However, since Stan Lee left Marvel, long ago, the Thunder God has seen editor's and writers who furthered Stan's vision of the be all, end all of ALL superheroes...and those who did NOT share Stan's vision.
In your opinion, which editor's/writer's liked the character and portrayed him the right way and which ones didn't?
Also, does Marvel portray Thor the way he should be portrayed in this day and age? If not, what is the solution?
