Synopsis for "The Mighty Thor Battles the Incredible Hulk!"Edit

While flying through the city, Thor happens upon two groups of children arguing over the who is the stronger between Thor and Hulk. Interested in the debate, Thor lands to see what all the commotion is about, and the children ask him if he knows who is the stronger of the two.

Thor recounts for them his last encounter with Hulk however, goes into a part of the story that was not previously recorded.

In Thor's recounting of the events, he and Hulk are separated from the Avengers and Sub-Mariner during their battle. Realizing Hulk's strength, Thor asks Odin to lift the enchantment that forces Thor to change to Donald Blake after being kept from his hammer for sixty seconds so he can pit his strength against Hulk.

Odin grants Thor's wish, giving him five minutes time free of the enchantment that binds his power to his hammer however it makes Thor's hammer vulnerable to damage and able to be picked up by anybody, which causes Hulk to attempt to destroy it, keeping Thor defensive during the battle.

During their combat, the integrity of the cavern Thor and Hulk are fighting in caves in, covering Hulk with tons of rock. About that time the five minutes Odin granted Thor are up. Thor smashes through the rubble to continue his fight with Hulk but found he escaped.

Thor attempts to follow Hulk, but cannot find a trace of him. The test to see who is the strongest is inconclusive. Thor rejoins his comrades and battle Namor, until Hulk arrives again.

Thor stops his story there explaining that there is nothing more to tell, and explains that he has no proof that he is stronger than Hulk and therefore won't make such a claim and flies off. Meanwhile elsewhere Hulk turns his thoughts to Thor as well wondering when next they'll clash.
