movie facts

The God of Thunder, Thor, seems a formidable hero in the Marvel universe. With his sheer strength, ability to command lightning, and wielding his mighty Mjolnir hammer, it might seem as if he will be one of the heroes that are impossible to beat. However, in the comics, Thor has had some noteworthy matches where he hasn’t come out on top. A hero that matches Thor’s might, Superman faced off with the mighty Asgardian in the 2003 series, JLA/Avengers. The Man of Steel was able to considerably weaken Thor during the massive battle between the Justice League and Avengers heroes. Another mythical being, Hercules in The Mighty Thor #126, beat Thor, with the Greek demigod having the advantage over Thor who had half of his power stripped by Odin.
