Gauntlet Of The Week: Thor Odinson

Shout out goes to @hittheassasin for the idea of this thread, In any case This is a new series that's different from the traditional Battle Of The Week Threads which is called Gauntlet of the week. A character runs the gauntlet and you viners must vote on where he stops at simple as that. For this first one the son of Odin Thor Odinson will run the gauntlet does he clear if not how far does he make it.

No Caption Provided

Rules:

  • Random Encounter, No Prep time
  • Thor's morals are off, opponents are in character unless otherwise specified
  • Thor Odinson is regular version
  • Offensive TP is restricted off all counts
  • Opponents are also regular versions unless otherwise specified
  • Thor is in Warrior's Madness Mode
  • These combatants are fighting in an generic city, 500 feet apart from eachother and visible
  • Thor Odinson has 5 hours of rest in-between rounds
  • Wins are by Incapitation, Knock Out, BFR (Battle-Field Removal, Basically knocking someone so far the fight cannot continue) or Death of all counts as elimination. Making a tactical retreat counts as a loss as well "What's a tactical retreat?" It's leaving the fight with the intention of not returning to the battle in the immediate future, Note: Going to a different location in the environment to catch a breathe or two or for a tactical advantage doesn't count as a tactical retreat.
  • Please do treat everyone within the debate with respect, It also shows signs of a good debater and If you think someone is saying something that isn't true then go ahead and stick out facts to point out why as there is no need for insults or rudeness just because you disagree with someone else's opinion. As of course this is talking about a fictional fight and all so no need for immaturity
  • One more thing: you don't need to write an essay to have your post highlighted in Friday's article. Sometimes concise posts can be way more effective than a flood of paragraphs. Viner posts that stand out will be included at the end.
  • Votes last until Monday afternoon, 21:00 UK time, or in EST is 16:00. and remember Votes don't determine who wins just who the majority sides with

So how far can the son of Odin go.

Stops at Round 7 against World Breaker Hulk.

I believe that he gets past Wonder Woman, Captain Marvel and Supergirl due to his incredible durability and versatility in the form of Mjolnir throws and lightning which should even out the speed difference.

Don't see any versions specified for DC characters. Regardless, he should stop at 7. Rebirth Superman shouldn't be that high up.

@royal_warrior: It's called subjective opinion my friend, I think Clark can beat WBH as well as MMH with hax and similar physicals to supes, and I'm definetly certain WW is above Stable Sentry higher skill, stronger and faster.

@all-father I said regular version meaning Post Crisis Clark.

Clears. Thor being in Warrior madness already stomped an in-character Silver Surfer, the only character here who could potentially beat WM Thor in a fight is WBH, however Thor can just BFR Hulk for the win as the rules allow it.

He BFRed hulk and tried to BFR PG Drax while in warrior madness, so it is in-character.

Stops at WBH

I'll likely make a post sometime this week on why WM Thor beats WBH.

WW above Stable Sentry and Shazam??????????

SHazam is cool but he's a bit overhyped. Other than the few stories when he's magically Supermans Equal in everyway in stories that don't involve Superman it's seems Cap is quite a bit weaker than most think. Combine that he's got nothing thor couldn't handle between being just a flying brick with no combat experience that shoots magical lightning.

If I had to say who would give Thor a better fight I'd defiantly side with Diana.

Lel, horribly out of order. WBH should be 9th, and he probably stops there.

Possibly stops at WBH.

Most likely if not definitely stops at WW, Supes or MM.

People always say that "Thor holds back against mortals." But his combat speed is just sad... against powerhouses also.

Here're some of his feats for you to assess(not arguing for him, many just generally aren't aware of his showings apart from fighting Superman, alone):

Summary and origin. Shakes off Plastic Man.

Basically holds his own against The Justice League of America, who were under the influence of Neron; so basically without morals. It's also worth noting that, initially, Lady Blaze being in such close proximity was also dampening his power: so he was even WEAKER, at the start of the fight, than he is regularly.

Dreadnought nullifies the power(s) of, and dominates Superman, Aquaman, Martian Manhunter and Elongated Man

Captain Marvel knocks him around.

Literally can move faster than gravity.

Fares better in Neron's Hell than any other member of The League. Overpowers Felix Faust's magic.

Battle with Lobo "rocks the cosmos". Tanks a blast from Jack Knight. KOs Superman in two hits.

Given enough time, his lightning is perfectly capable of killing Superman.

Takes a hit from Eclipso possessed Superman with no ill effect. Power Girl admits to him being in all likelihood faster than she is.

Uses the Wisdom of Solomon to command armies. Stops one of Guy Gardner's constructs. Weathers the Thunderbolt's power, as commanded by Ultra-Humanite.

Keeps up with Wally West, who compliments his speed. Is unaffected by The Spear of Longinus. Tanks a hit from, and survives being literally turned inside out by The Void Hound.

VS Superman while at 1/3rd power.

VS Martian Manhunter, while trying to ward off mental-attack from The Gray Man.

Upon receiving his powers for the first time...proceeds to nearly beat the sh!t out of The Wizard(in the Rock of Eternity, no less).

Lastly; the Wisdom of Solomon allows him to discern the nature of enemies' powers, and see through illusions.

VS Lobo.

Superman considers him an equal "in every way". Smashes a crystal petrifying Superman's upper body.

Accidentally punches an enemy so hard...he creates "A black hole that is pulling everything back to eternity". VS Captain Nazi.

He's not losing to everyone in the Gauntlet and on top of that Worldbreaker Hulk should be second to last. That being said, he stops hard there.

I agree Sentry should be above Wonder Woman and World Breaker Hulk should be above Superman. Stops at Sentry, would lose to Superman and MMH too, has little chance of beating World Breaker Hulk or Silver Surfer.

Even with warriors madness? He gave a physical beatdown to Power Gem Drax, who with the possible exception of World Breaker Hulk none of the people on this list are even comparable to in blunt force durability. If he loses to anyone, but Hulk it would be due to speed and Hax, but I don't think that Sentry can beat him when normal Thor can give Sentry a good fight.

Even pre52 is Diana comfortably above Billy, current nigh featless Billy shouldn't even be above Kara.

I agree about Sentry though.

I give him credit and like Billy a lot, doesn't changes the fact that Diana even in pre52 overall better feats had and he since new52 barely any good feats has.

@kevd4wg: Warrior Madness Thor already fought a deranged Professor Hulk and couldn't defeat him even though they fought for more than a hour and Thor directly stated he was trying to kill him. So i don't see how WM Thor is taking down WBH, outside of a possible BFR which would be very, very difficult.

@thedailybagel: Certainly not regular Worthy Thor. WM Thor may make it closer but in its recent uses, WM Thor only managed to stalemate an unstable Professor and beat up a not fighting back Beta Ray Bill. Even if WM does give Thor a 10x strength boost, he loses to the last 4 since WM doesn't boost his durability.

He didn't give a beatdown to PG Drax, he was fighting evenly with him. I certainly don't recall Drax being easily beaten by Thor in that state. Also, Thor wasn't suffering true Warrior's Madness, this was Blood and Thunder Thor who had gone insane and had his strength boosted by a combination of adrenaline and insanity according to an editorial letter response. Also normal Thor and Sentry haven't really fought outside of the initial scuffle in Siege #1 and I don't think Thor could have done any better than Sentry did against WWH.
