Hulk, no contest. Kurse punches sent Thor away? So did Hulk's. But Kurse has nothing even close to what did with this Leviatan monster.

Hulk's leviathan punch>Kurse punch/slap

logically Kurse, if he punch hard as Hulk's leviathan punch

Kurse's punches did more damage to Thor in TDW than Hulk's in Ragnarok.

@gateofbabylon:

To be fair Kurse never finished Thor. He had him rocked and then Loki intervened.

Hulk is the only character to actually knock Thor unconscious on camera.

Kurse punches seemed more powerful based on how quickly Thor was almost out.

Obviously, Kurse. How is this even debatable?

Are you talking about the Gladiator match? Because the obedience disk played a big role in Thor getting knocked out.

True, but it's very fair to assume that he would have KOed Thor soon if he went on, given how badly Thor was messed up.

Hulk is the only character to actually knock Thor unconscious on camera.

Also true, but after Thor was incapacitated by the obedience disc and Hulk made that crazy leap punch. Nothing Kurse can't replicate under the same circumstances.

Maybe Thor would have gained his bearings and gone on to win the fight with Kurse. There's a lot of maybes but what matters is what happened because that is all the evidence we have.

That crazy leap punch knocked Thor out and was compared to an atom bomb in the script. The question is who hits harder, and there's no way Kurse could replicate the force of that hit.

Yes, there's a lot of maybes, but some are more logical and rational than others. That's like saying Thor would have magically turned the tables and one shotted Thanos in EG if Cap hadn't intervened. Or maybe Goku would have teleported into the MCU and beat up Kurse.

That crazy leap punch knocked Thor out and was compared to an atom bomb in the script. The question is who hits harder, and there's no way Kurse could replicate the force of that hit.

That's a huge hyperbole we can't take seriously. A force of an atom bomb did no damage to the people in the arena? A force of an atom bomb only KOed Thor without other visible injuries after he awoke?

Yes, the question is who hits harder. If Kurse did the same thing as Hulk, he would have hit as hard if not harder.

Unless you're talking about who has the single greater striking feat, but I don't think that's what OP was asking.

You bumped a thread a couple of minutes after creating it? Anyway, Hulk punches harder.

Kurse. He was stomping thor and messing him up in way less hits then it took hulk to. Thor was actually able to put up a good fight with hulk but against kurse it was so one sided. How are people even saying hulk?

Kurse. He's more comparable to Thanos than he is to Hulk.

That doesnt prove anything unless you know an instance in which kurse punched a leviatan and did less damage.

Kurse NEVER punched a leviathan, the only possible comparison is going by the damage kurse and hulk caused to thor when they punched him, since its the only feat they have in common and thus, our only way of actually putting one characters strength against the other.

thor was even even with hulk, and was smiling after being punched by hulk twice.

Thor got hurt pretty bad by a few of kurses punches, and inflicted serious damage.

And thus, kurse at the very least have way better striking power. this is a fact.

Lifting strength? impossible to know.

Hulk by visual feats, Kurse by scaling from their Thor encounters. And as we know MCU is more keen to scaling than visual feats so most likely Kurse.

Kurse. The dude was only around for like 15-20 minutes tops and was showing how brute strength works.

What does this prove? Hulk struggled to inflict any lasting damage on Thor in the arena fight, while Kurse beat him down with ease and had him near ko/death.

Kurse, he had an easier time brutalizing Thor.

The only decent comparison we have is how they fared vs thor, and kurse takes that easily.

The leviathan thing proves nothing because kurse never fought a leviathan

Logically kurse but I cannot see him replicating the surtur punch.

@kalkent: Thor in TDW was very likely weaker than Ragnarok Thor. Plus, we see Thor receiving more damage from ONLY the star. At no other point in the MCU was a non-depowered Thor that damaged, not even by Thanos, the Power Stone, Hela, or an exploding city, yet I doubt Kurse was ever meant to be on the same tier of power as any of these things. Otherwise, we now have city level Kurse.

Hulk based on feats.
