Marvel Studios’ Avengers: Endgame Disproves Thor: Ragnarok’s Claims

Marvel Studios’ Avengers: Endgame may have disproven Thor’s claim in Thor: Ragnarok that he was the strongest Avenger by bringing the Infinity Saga to a close. After his hammer, Mjolnir, was destroyed by his sister, Hela, Thor struggled in Ragnarok to regain and control his immense power.

After defeating Hela and saving the Asgardian populace in Avengers: Infinity War, he was left feeling defeated after failing to kill Thanos. As a result, Thor appeared more like The Dude from The Big Lebowski than the legendary God of Thunder during much of Marvel Studios’ Avengers: Endgame.

Endgame saw both Black Widow and Iron Man sacrifice themselves in order to save the people they cared about, sacrificing their own lives for the sake of their loved ones. In Thor: Ragnarok, Thor made it clear that he thought he was the most powerful Avenger.

Since Bruce Banner/Hulk had used “Strongest Avenger” as a password to unlock the controls of the Quinjet, he concluded that “Strongest Avenger” should have been his password to unlock its controls. The joke’s punchline was that Tony Stark gave Banner the “Strongest Avenger” password to make it clear who he believed should be the title’s rightful owner.

Defined By Superpowers

Avengers: Endgame seemed to settle the question of which Avenger was the strongest: Thor or Hulk. He could have snipped half of the cosmos back into existence with the Iron Gauntlet and still be Hulk. Even though Thor has lost all of their fights, it should be remembered that only the Grandmaster’s intervention in Ragnarok’s arena fight prevented Thor from winning, further implying the Hulk’s superiority.

Thor and Hulk were not the only Avengers who were physically powerful. Just two examples of characters with cosmic powers are Captain Marvel and Wanda Maximoff/Scarlet Witch. Superpowers have defined these characters for the most part, but this may not be the best way to describe their overall strength.

It’s important to remember that strength is more than just physical prowess, like Thor and Hulk. When Steve Rogers/Captain America faced Thanos’ army in Avengers: Endgame, he showed the strength to face overwhelming odds. Natasha Romanoff and Tony Stark’s decision to give up their lives for the greater good was a courageous act of self-sacrifice.

Much Has Been Accomplished In The Infinity Saga

Thor

A lot of what happened in Marvel Studios’ Avengers: Endgame was a culmination of the Infinity Saga for Thor, physically and emotionally. In many ways, Bruce Banner’s journey to reconcile his two selves was similar to Hulk’s in Avengers: Endgame, and it explains why Hulk was so powerful. As far as we know, Thor will be able to achieve the same level of serenity and self-awareness.

Despite the fact that the ability to confront and overcome fear, trauma, and grief is often undervalued as a superpower, he has already accomplished so much. In spite of that, it helped unite Hulk and Thor with the Avengers, who ultimately triumphed in Avengers: Endgame as a result. Final analysis: Thor and Hulk’s debate about being the “strongest Avenger” in Thor: Ragnarok is overly simplistic. Despite the fact that these two superheroes are vying to see who is more powerful, it is more important to remember what they and the other Avengers stand for.
