I can cite dozens of examples.

In the jobber Hulk vs Thanos fight, punches by Thanos did nothing to move the Hulk. Thor and Hulkbuster have sent Hulk further with their strikes.

In the Iron man vs Thanos fight, his punches didn't send him flying like it should. Hulk's punches against Thor sent him much further than Thanos vs iron man.

Ronan sent drax further than Thanos with his strikes.

When Thanos punched captain america, cap was ko'ed but didn't go flying with the punch. Even civil war Iron man and cross bones sent him further than Thanos did.

Even shocker has far better striking power than Thanos tbh.

Super striking power doesn't mean that you have to send opponents flying. What matters is it hurts them

That's usually the thing with Darkseid and Thanos even in the comic. Their slaps usually don't send people too far away, but they were definitely heavy and painful.

They're more sharp, quick and painful punches. As you can see they messed the Hulk up

If he wanted to take a huge powerful swing at them and send them flying miles away I'm sure he could

Yeah this always confused me too. Hulk weighs about half a ton, yet none of these strikes really moved him. How would he have been able to KO Hulk so fast? Look at Batman v Superman for example; all Superman had to do was tap Batman (in his heavier armor) in order to send him flying.

Punching hard =/= Send people flying

He punch harder than any superhero character in any movie, aside from Goku in Evolution

if ironman sends hulk flying and hulk comes back just fine than thanos punchs hulk and ko‘s him without sending him flying does this mean ironman‘s punch is stronger?

ofc not.

its fiction, basicly.

things like this allways happen.

@arthur_morgan: I think they should at least do some type of shockwave to imply that Hulk braced. Or else it leaves viewers with questions like this.

Maybe they didn't want to do cheesy effects, so I will give them a pass. I just think there should be some consistency.

People don’t realize the true emotion of Thanos. In the entire movie, he wasn’t trying to vastly overpower any hero, he was purposely playing with them because within himself he had doubt. If the dude can out skill and over power the Hulk, why do you think he was taking such a long time with Ironman even when had some of the gauntlet completed.

Yet Thanos floored Hulk faster than either of them ever could.

In the Iron man vs Thanos fight, his punches didn't send him flying like it should.

Yet he was able to tear apart his armor like it was made of cheap cardboard, something even a meteor couldn't do.

Ronan sent drax further than Thanos with his strikes.

Yet that single strike from Thanos one-shotted Drax unlike all those hits from Ronan.

When Thanos punched captain america, cap was ko'ed but didn't go flying with the punch. Even civil war Iron man and cross bones sent him further than Thanos did.

Yet neither of them could one-shot him like Thanos did.

Instead of judging how hard a character strikes by how far they can send something flying you should judge them by what they actually accomplish. The force of strikes aren't always depicted by how far someone is sent flying in fiction.

@arthur_morgan:

It's confusing for the fact that it did nothing visually. Didn't move him at all, and it didn't create any visible force. But we're supposed to believe that he can ko Hulk (who tanked a building falling on him) in seconds. Yes, it's heavily implied. But it doesn't mean that it wasn't confusing. Especially when we are given other movies where punches from high tiers do one or both or those things. That's the whole reason for this thread.

@boc: you are making it unnecessary confusing for yourself.

its a still just a movie in the end of the day.

and its not confusing.

visually , he beat Hulk as if hes a random nobody, thats the visual of Thanos‘ strength.

you are not supposed to “believe“ he can easiely Ko hulk , you are supposed to know it and they showed it.

no need to send him miles flying.

Because it’s not Destruction porn. Marvel likes to weaken their characters making the stakes more interesting and in turn making there movies better.

Sigh.

Enough with this nonsense.

Thanos was holding back against Tony.

Thanos VS Hulk wasn’t supposed to be a climactic battle. It was supposed to show that Thanos was on another level and it did exactly that. Quick and to the point.

What did you want them to do with Captain America? Splatter his brains? He was obviously holding back. Batman evaded Doomsday like nothing, does anyone bring that up against Doomsday?

Superman VS Faora took place in an iHop and Supes was getting beaten up. Aquaman VS Black Manta there were no “mUh ShOCkwAvEz” at all. Wonder Woman VS Ludendorff took place in a watchtower. Not every fight has to be destruction porn. Thanos pounded Thor Hulk and Iron Man to a pulp. Saying he has weak striking is just asinine.

That's because there are more important things than destruction porn and collateral damage and not every filmmaker chooses to show it. Intent is what matters here.

This. Just because we don't see shockwaves and people flying through buildings doesn't mean the strikes are just street level.

Directors each have their own visual style and preferences. They are trying to make art, not a hard science simulation of hypothetical giant purple and green men and the effects their strength has on the environment. Why this is becoming an issue now boggles my mind. I don't remember Thor being called street level after Thor 1 because his fight with Loki looked like a couple guys getting into it at a cosplay convention.

Hulk has plenty of durability feats that establish how much force it takes to hurt him. If Thanos' punches knocked him out the logical conclusion is that Thanos exerting equal to or greater force than we've seen knock Hulk out in the past.

That's in comics too. Thanos can fight galactic level character and their strikes look like MCU cap.

He was the only one who did real damage to the hulk with his strikes, and one of the few characters who managed to KO cap. He hurt everything he punched.

@bag_ass: if they followed laws of science in cbms then superman wouldn't have been able to fly

Jor el states that earth's gravity is weaker. So we can understand that sunlight doesn't help him fly. If he tried to fly , then he would float and wouldn't be able to fly and propel himself at Mach speed

They use their own logic and rule to determine their own vision and story, regardless it still somewhat use the laws of physics as i state earlier, if they're not, we'd only have conceptual being and something completely without physics in the story. Even if they came up with their own logic that doesn't mean it throws the real one out of the building, at least that's what i'm hoping for anyway.

When you exert an amount of force on something it usually creates more damage unless you want to say hulk is made of taffy or thanos has chi blocking punch or some kind of technique that destroy his opponent from their insides which i highly doubt. Hulk was tanking more damage from hulk buster and thor in his movies and a couple of jabs that barely shook the ground just ko'ed him which only creates an inconsistency with his character for the sake of convenient.

When thanos punched cap, why was he instantly knocked out and not sent flying? Now look at crossbones, someone significantly weaker than thanos, who sent cap flying, but cap survived, if thanos wanted to send opponents flying he could, but the directors choose not to have him do that, movie wise not all feats are consistent
