In all of those scan Thor and his enemies are fighting at FTL speed.
Can you prove that?
Don't misunderstand my tone. I'm a Thor fan (although not so much these days, know what I mean?).
Based on what I've seen of the Thunder God, I cannot in good conscience award Thor FTL reflexes.
Why does thor have jumps in speed and his combat speed so inconsistent? answer truly is so he can fight every popular character at that time since he is so popular..If thor fights wolverine then it sells books and if he fights surfer, it again sells books. He has more than enough showings to prove that he can react to characters whom are as fast as supes, but people tend to choose to only pay attention to his lower showings and their minds are never going to be changed. You either believe he can or you believe he can't.. The thing about this particular fight is bfr is allowed,, so how does supes not get bfr'd? how does supes not eventually get wore down with magical attacks? and what does he do about the God Blast?
There is some bias against Thor around here for sure...I think that contributes more than anything to the idea that Thor has no reaction speed to speak of.
The way I appraise a character's reaction speed is: "What has the character done that clearly indicates he/she can react at < insert level of speed > and leaves no doubt in the mind of the reader". Superman has feats for reacting at near the speed of light. Wally West has numerous feats that show he's fast enough to engage in time travel shenanigans, etc, etc....and all without being measured against other characters (per se). Also, the feats performed should also be feats that reasonably, logically translate to combat/reaction speed.
The problem is lots of people have ideas about why a character is written a certain way. At the end of the day, the most unbiased way to appraise a character's power set is by carefully evaluating what the feats/scans say about the character in question.
Regarding Thor, you're talking about a character with 50 years of continuity....whom I have never seen react at faster than light speed. So, if I see something remotely that indicates Thor could be reacting at FTL speeds, the first question in my mind is, "what changed between now and then that clearly indicates that Thor can now move at FTL speeds". In Thor's case, I don't have a basis for supporting FTL speeds based on that criteria.
Hey, who knows: maybe after Secret Wars is over, a new version of Thor will step forward that IS FTL.
THAT would be cool.
Thor blitz SS that is trying to stop him and protect his master,
Thor speed blitz SS with Mjolnirg
Thor speed Blitz him with Mjolnirg again
SS has FTL reflexes and is unable to react against thor,
Thor reacts to FTL Mjolnirg in nanoseconds.
Skyfather thor sends gorr light years away in moments and then they go there in seconds.
