War Thor Respect Thread

No Caption Provided

One of the only interesting parts of Jason Aaron's ongoing Thor run was the introduction of War Thor. With it being unlikely to say the least we will see War Thor in the future I figured I would compile all his feats together in a respect thread.

Bio

Volstagg was travelling to Nidavellir as part of a diplomatic mission, when the camp was attacked by forces from Muspelheim. Volstagg tried to ensure the safety of a group of children he found among the destruction caused by the attack. While making their way through the fiery warzone, Volstagg and the children were targeted by an explosion, of which only Volstagg emerged alive. Seeking retribution and a way to put an end to the war that ravaged the Ten Realms, Volstagg was called to the abandoned City of Asgard in the Asgard-realm by Ultimate Mjolnir, took the power and became War Thor.

Powers

The gaining of Ultimate Mjolnir gave Volstagg many powers on top of his already strong Asgardian Physiology. These powers include

Super Strength

Super Durability

Flight

Super Speed

Weather Manipulation

Electricity Manipulation.

Strength

War Thor became quite strong after he picked up Ultimate Mjolnir putting him around and probably above Jane Thor in terms of strength.

Knocks Unworthy Thor back causing him visible pain.

War Thor makes Ulik bleed with one hit, this is the same Ulik who can tank hits from Thor with Mjolnir.

War Thor is able to catch the Fire Sword of Surtur's daughter and is able to make Jane Thor bleed as well as knock Mjolnir away.

Probably War Thor's best strength feat is being able to make Mangog fall back and lose a tooth. This is the same Mangog who tanks and no sells hits from Thor.

Durability

War Thor is pretty impressive in terms of durability.

Tanks a blast from Enchantress.

Ulik's knuckles shatter on War Thor, the same Ulik who drew blood from normal Thor.

War Thor takes some bull-rushes from Thor's goats.

Tanks some hits from Mjolnir.

War Thor took an insane beat down from Mangog and kept fighting.

Tanks being slammed into things and having Ultimate Mjolnir redirected at him.

Tanks fire from Surtur's daughter, who is unfortunately nigh featless

He takes a country level redirection of lightning from Mangog

Speed

Now unfortunately War Thor has all of one speed feat. You can scale and say that he kept up with Jane Thor and Odinson, but it's pretty weak.

It's pretty unquantifiable too.

Storms

He has decent Storm manip.

Does this to United States sized Asgard by sticking Ultimate Mjolnir inside of Mangog's mouth.

He can create many powerful bolts of lightning strong enough to hurt Jane Thor, Fandral, Hogun, and Sif.

He can create earthquakes and crack the ground with his lightning.

He knocks back monsters with lightning and traps Jane Thor in a lightning bubble.

He can also create giant storms, including tornadoes, and massive lightning strikes instantly.

Miscellaneous

No Caption Provided

He is bloodlusted by the Hammer

No Caption Provided

He can also control where Ultimate Mjolnir goes.

Things to Keep in Mind

  • Aaron is fairly inconsistent with his power levels so take that as you will
  • You can scale feats from Volstagg and Ultimate Thor and there is a great Ulimate Thor respect thread by SirFizzWhizz on the vine, but there is not a Volstagg or Warriors Three respect thread.

Respect War Thor!

very nice RT.

it seems like war thor is around unworthy thor or jane thor level if not slightly above, ignoring aaron and his tendency to make other characters job in favour of his pet characters, like mangog and ulik

he managed to draw blood and knock out a tooth, had a fight that lasted the whole issue, and literally took dozens of blows...

Eh, I kinda hate this concept, but what to expect from current Marvel stories. Regardless, great respect thread mate.

@battle123axe: that was one of the more brutal beatings I've seen from a Thor comic. Mangog stomped him and even literally crushed the hammer in his hands, the fight was not close imo.

He's one tough punching bag though.

He's tough, but I'd still back unworthy Thor and Jane over him because of more feats

@del_torro: He beat Jane Thor in a fight and Jane Thor > Odinson

@Kevd4wg: she's superior? Is that why Thor Stalemated her in a fight, matched her lightning output against the Phoenix force and matched her again when fighting apocalypse?
