World Breaker Hulk vs Thor
submitted by asap-jockey
Before the events of World War Hulk, Thor had given his life to protect Asgard from Ragnarok and wasn’t present during the Civil War or the return of The Hulk and his rampage against the Illuminati. His absence left Marvel’s heroes practically defenseless against Hulk in his most powerful incarnation yet: World Breaker Hulk.
After The Illuminati inadvertently destroyed Hulk’s new found home, killing his queen and the people he had saved and come to rule. The Green Scar rounded up a few of his closest allies and made for Earth to exact his revenge. The loss of his wife, his people, and his only real time of peace, coupled with his meditation techniques, combat training, and harmony between him and Banner triggered a whole new level of rage well beyond anything previously seen. His strength was not only higher than it has ever been, but his use of weapons, Banner’s intellect, and focused rage proved him powerful enough to live up to his title of World Breaker, as he almost destroyed the planet with his immense power.
But what if the God of Thunder had been there to intervene? World Breaker Hulk mowed down some of Marvel’s biggest, from Black Bolt, to Iron Man, and even Juggernaut was crushed by his rage; but there was a reason Marvel planned these events at this point in the timeline: Thor’s absence was the only factor that truly allowed Banner to go as far as he did.
Of all of Earth’s heroes on The Avengers and the X-men, and even the most powerful villains, Thor is on a whole different level. He may frequently be used as a punching bag, taking the fall when needed, but outside the pages of plot and storyline, Thor’s strength levels are just too much for the raging green man. Hulk at his most powerful was shown to almost destroy a planet with great effort, something Thor can do casually. Not to mention light speed, immensely powerful lightning, and a slew of magical powers; Thor when not holding back is a cosmic threat, too much for Hulk on his best day.
