Who's the strongest Marvel superhero: Hulk or Thor?

Hulk and Thor are brothers-in-arms as Avengers. But in the movies, animated series, and comics—the powerhouses are constantly fighting about who is "the strongest one there is." Hulk popularized the phrase "Hulk strongest one there is," but even Marvel icon Stan Lee has argued that Thor, a Norse God, is the strongest. We'll leave it up to you to settle one of Marvel's greatest debates. We all know Hulk and Thor could smash each other to death, but who's the strongest one there is? 👊 💪


Hulk will be featured in "Thor: Ragnarok." Mark Ruffalo describes the film as "an intergalactic buddy road movie with Banner and Thor." Ruffalo tells Entertainment Tonight in an interview:

"I think it will be smashing. You'll see a lot more Hulk and I think it'll--" he began, before co-star Woody Harrelson cut in to ask if Hulk will be even "Hulk-ier" this time around. "The Hulk gets Hulk-ier. The Hulk Hulks out. Hulk-ier and bigger."

Apparently, there's also a big fight between Hulk and Thor. So fans will be getting the best of both worlds—Hulk and Thor's bromance, and Hulk and Thor smashing the crap out of the each other.

Below is a synopsis of "Thor: Ragnarok," per IMDB:

Thor must face the Hulk in a gladiator match and save his people from the ruthless Hela.

Will the film settle who's the strongest? Probably not—but fans can settle this. Watch a clip below of Thor and Hulk's flight in "Ragnarok."

Comic book nerds have been debating who's the strongest for decades!

Here's the case for #TeamHulk:

Hulk not only claims to be "the strongest one there is," but the gamma-radiated green powerhouse gets stronger the angrier he gets. There's no limit to the Hulk's strength. 

As his alter ego Dr. Bruce Banner would say, "Don't make me angry. You wouldn't like it when I'm angry."

Here's the case for #TeamThor:

Thor is a Norse God. He not only has superhuman strength and stamina, but he can fly, summon lightning, transport across dimensions, and—most importantly—he wields an enchanted hammer called Mjölnir only he (most of the time) is worthy of carrying to battle.

"Odin's beard!" Thor's a God, alright.

Only Thor is worthy of Mjölnir. Nice try, Hulk.

Hulk is a powerhouse force to be reckoned with. How can you stop the Green Goliath if his strength is fueled by his rage and the gamma radiation exposure that gave him his abilities?

There was that time when Hulk was blasted into outer space and landed on the planet Sakaar. Hulk became a gladiator, but when the planet began to split apart, Hulk saved the day and literally pulled the planet back together.

Also, there was that time when Hulk was the only hero who could stop the villain Onslaught (this was a character that flicked X-Men villain Juggernaut across the Hudson River like he was a string bean). The madder he got, the stronger he became—eventually using a single punch to end the powerful psionic villain.

... Is the question answered now?


Lee made it clear that he created Thor to be even stronger than the Hulk. His thinking? Thor is a God. You can't beat that.

Though, Goldilocks and Hulk are pretty much a draw in the majority of their fights across media platforms. What would happen if Hulk got his maddest, and Thor didn't hold back? Thor would win. While Thor's strength doesn't seem to be fully explored as a Norse God, we've seen Hulk at his angriest, right?

Either way, many geeks argue we can't beat what the creator says. Movie Pilot's David Opie writes:

Whether you think that Thor should be ultimate victor here or not, it's hard to argue with the man who created both of these iconic characters way back in the early '60s. I for one am just happy that I finally have an answer to this age-old question, as it's been tough going this long with so many sleepless nights. 

Thor was created to be the strongest hero of the Marvel Universe.

The more pissed off Hulk gets, the stronger he gets. The Incredible Hulk is unstoppable.

Hulk has smashed Thor so many times in the past.

But Mr. Stan Lee has already spoken! The Norse God is the strongest.
