..Was reading through a copy of the Infinity Guantlet yesterday and it struck me that Hulk had a fairly minor role in that story. In fact, it was Thor who almost got the killing blow in on Thanos at one point (before being turned to glass) and had a fairly major role in the end part smacking him out into space.
So I am assuming that back in the 80s, Thor was being written as more powerful than Hulk?
Certainly it seems something changed between then and when Greg Pak got involved with Hulk and Thor went through his dodgy spell in the 1990s, early 00s comics. From memory, I think Walter Simonsen was on his mega Thor run when Guantlet was written, but I may be wrong.
Certainly true that Hulk appeared much tougher when he encountered Thanos in the more recent Infinity storyline than the Guantlet!
