Hulk vs. Thor – in the comics!

I will have to say – this is certainly one of the best match-ups in comics – a mortal with unmeasurable strength against a God.  There is a long history of these two powerhouses meeting up – so here’s some of the covers featuring them!  Quick note – each comic posted is from my collection – and I just recently acquired the first:
Journey Into Mystery #112 - The one that started it all!

  1. oooooohh JIM 112 … I still need that one … great score!!! what condition?

    grats on another incredible haul!

  2. It’s pretty decent – I’m thinking a “Good” copy – but hey, it’s a copy! I went to a comic shop in R.I. and this one was on the wall – just calling to me! I bought a bunch of comics – and the guy gave me a better price than was listed on the wall – so, hey I was psyched! I have to say though… 178 is such a great cover!

  3. Thor vs. Hulk is great when done right and a writer actually respects what each one can do. Each are about the only ones that can truly test each other.

    Which battle is your favorite? Personally, I prefer Thor #385. It should the difference between Thor with and without the hammer, but had both do well against the other.

  4. I don’t want to piss anyone off but I believe the cover on Avengers #5 is Ian Churchill not Liefield. Liefield’s cover is just showing their faces. and they co-drew the comic. Like I said not trying to piss anyone off it’s just I’m a fan of Churchill’s art and thought he should get some regonition. Sorry if I offended you ratchet

    • That wouldn’t piss me off – you haven’t offended anyone – if it’s Churchill’s – then he SHOULD get the credit!

  5. Whew! I can breathe easy! I wish Churchill would come back to Hulk and drew it his original style but I know about his injury which I hope he completely recovers

  6. Hello everyone!! Maybe someone can help me. I am looking for two comics of Hulk versus Thor. In the first, the Hulk crash thor’s hammer, lift thor and throw him on Doc Samson. In the second hulk lift the hammer mijolnir and uses it to hit thor. Unfortunately I only have two images taken from internet of them.. I would greatly appreciate any help to find the numbers of this comics in English, Spanish or Italian. I leave the links for you to view images


  7. I believe the scene with Thor and Doc Samson is from Incredible Hulk 227. The scene is not real but only in the Hulk’s mind as he is undergoing psychoanalysis with Doc Samson.
    The other scene with Thor is from Incredible Hulk: Let The Battle Begin.
    The Hulk isn’t actually lifting Mjolnir. The hammer is in Thor’s hand but the Hulk is moving Thor’s arm to cause him to bludgeon himself.
