"Chris Hemsworth Is Still All Muscley In ‘Thor: The Dark World’ Videos"
Kat Dennings, on one hand I hate her because she’s on 2 Broke Girls, on the other hand, I like her because bewbs
After the cop out that was Iron Man 3 I’ve completely given up on these marvel movies. While they’ll all rake in the cash, it’s clear now all these movies are marketed to kids. I’m somewhat positive his gf getting killed will all be BS in the movie
Quick question: how strong is Thor?
I mean, really?
In the first movie he mowed down waves of Frost Giants and flew through the guts of a Giant Frost Ape with ease as well as summon lightning to electrify hundreds of Chitauri entering through the wormhole, in the Avengers he proves to be stronger than Iron Man but gets quite a beating in the process due to Tony’s quick thinking, he can go a few rounds with The Freakin’ Hulk (who pulverized Loki like a sack of air), only when he fought Loki, in both movies, they were “equals” in terms of a balanced physical fight without magic, ending with Thor getting stabbed and escaping by a thin margin.
Either I’m reading too much into things, or his mighty powers tend to fluctuate when on Earth or there are some inconsistencies that need to be addressed in the sequel.
I think it’s worth bearing in mind that on both occasions, when they fought physically, Loki was packing some serious mystical firepower. In Thor he had Grungnir, the spear of Odin, which can be assumed to be at least comparable to Mjolnir, and in Avengers he had the magitech Chitauri mind-control spear-sceptre thingy, which again probably gives him a boost.
Oh, and if I remember correctly it didn’t end with Thor getting stabbed and escaping; the fight started with Loki sucker-stabbing Thor (who was trying to talk him down), and ended with Loki running for it after losing his sceptre (which, of course, then left him vulnerable to the Hulk).
So Stabbed Thor > Chitauri-powered Loki. Regular Thor > Odin-powered Loki. How much of that is brute strength and how much is narrative convenience I do not know.
plus it was obvious that Thor still cared for his brother so he was probably trying to subdue him without doing some serious damage which means he was pulling his punches.
I think we’re confusing beating someone with overall strength. Last year the Ravens lost to the Eagles in week 2. That does not mean the Eagles are better than the Ravens (outside of that one game), as the Eagles missed the playoffs and the Ravens won the Superbowl.
In the comics, the Hulk has been defeated by Daredevil, Spider-Man, Black Panther, and even Hawkeye. They are not in his league power-wise, but creative use of powers/writing made the stories believable.
Power-wise (in the comics), Thor has unearthly strength, which roughly translates to being able to lift 100 tons. Loki, being a god himself, is no lightweight. Loki has amazing strength, which roughly translates to being able to lift 50 tons.
