So… how powerful is Thor?
In Avengers: Infinity War alone, we see Thor lying on the ground next to Thanos, unable to fight back, but later we see him take the full power of a star. Now, as a comic book reader and comic book film fan, this didn’t even register to me. There is always an explanation, even if it isn’t directly mentioned on screen.
Well, I guess enough people were curious about it, as Collider spoke with Infinity War writers Christopher Markus and Stephen McFeely, and Markus addressed Thor’s “fluctuation” in power throughout the film:
“I think he’s very durable. Like I think, literally, his flesh is very hard to break. That’s why he can survive in space, that’s why he can take that thing in the star. But you can still drain him of energy, you can still knock him out, you can still hurt him. So I think it would be very hard to wreck his body, but I think, you know, he has stamina and his stamina goes up and his stamina goes down depending on what he’s been through.”
Makes sense to me! But again, I needed no explanation.
