Let's Discuss the Right Person to Play Thor

Okay this is a quick question and I need some good answers in response.

We were talking about who should play Thor. As you may know, director Kenneth Branagh is said to have six actors that are being considered. They are as follows:

Joel Kinnaman, Alexander SkarsgÄrd, Josh Hartnett, Liam Hemsworth, Charlie Hunnam, and Tom Hiddleston

While I will reserve my detailed opinion for who it should be, I will say without question that is shouldn't be any of these guys. While they may all be very fine actors, none of them look the part. The closest man Alexander would have to gain nearly 50 pounds of solid muscle and get older and grow Norse godish beard. So who do you guys pick. You can reach beyond the box and look elsewhere.

A Look at the Hulk Against Marvel Universe Gods - Hulk Vs Thor

We've seen the headlines: Hulk vs Superman, Hulk vs Wolverine, Hulk vs the Thing, and, basically, Hulk vs other superheroes. Classics that piqued our imagination. Who's the strongest? Who's the best fighter? Who'll win?
Time and time again the Hulk has proven that he's more than a match to most, if not all, super heroes. But how does he fair against gods? Lucky for us, there are two gods in the Marvel comic book universe, one from Olympus and one from Asgard, who walk among mortals and they've scuffled with the Hulk on a few occasions.
Let's take a look at some of these match-ups between Marvel powerhouses:

Thor, the Norse god of war and thunder, is a popular immortal in the Marvel universe. Banished to Earth to learn humility by his father, Odin, King of Asgard, Thor is entrapped in the body of a frail human, Donald Blake, who depends on a cane to walk around. The full power of Thor is only unleashed when Donald Blake taps his cane ceremoniously to summon the thunder god.
Thor's match ups with the Hulk are exciting. Fans are even hoping for a big screen brawl between the two. Some of the popular issues include the following:
* AVENGERS #3. Hulk and Thor first fought in Avengers No 3 when Thor and the Avengers tried to contain the rampaging Hulk. Joining the fray is the Sub-Mariner who aligned himself with the Hulk and fought the Earth's Mightiest Superhero. During one of the battles, the Hulk and Sub-Mariner doubled team Thor and wrestled him down. The Hulk transformed back into Banner and got away before his identity as the Hulk was revealed. The rest of the Avengers showed up to gang up against Sub-Mariner who retreated away to fight another day.
* THOR #385. One of the more fun fights between Hulk and Thor. In THOR No 385, Hulk challenged Thor to fight without the hammer Mjollnir. Thor accepted reluctantly after Hulk took on a hostage. He casted off his hammer and began fighting the Hulk. In the beginning, Thor thought about running away until the Hulk's rage subsides and transforms back to Banner so no one would get hurt. But pride got the best of him and he continued to fight the Hulk in turn destroying buildings, wreaking havoc in the streets, and risking lives including a bus full of school children. Thor showed the invincibility of a god as he refused to go down after receiving a few beat downs from the Hulk. The Hulk even slammed him with a train. In the end, Hulk realized that it was futile to continue fighting as his anger began to subside and he leaped away. Thor was left alone by himself but lusted for more.
* HULK 2001 ANNUAL. In order to avoid hurting innocents, Thor transported himself and the Hulk into another dimension to fight. In their first brawl upon arrival, Thor was thrown into a mountain by the Hulk and the rocks collapsed and buried him. The Hulk proceeded to leap away to find out about the new world. But at the same time, he managed to wreak havoc among its savage native inhabitants. Deciding that bringing the Hulk to the new world was a mistake, Thor found the Hulk and knocked him out with a lightning bolt. Traveling in between dimensions, the Hulk managed to transform back to Bruce Banner. But before Thor could drop him off in a secured military installation, Banner transformed back to Hulk who proceeded to wail on Thor. The Hulk walked away not knowing if Thor was still alive.
A few more releases tell the tales of clashes between these two power giants. It's important to note that Stan Lee himself meant for the brute strength of the Hulk to be matched, if at all, not by humans, but by gods. But is there a limit to the Hulk's strength? Remember, he gets stronger as he gets angrier.

Super Speed vs. Super Strength

Okay my son and I had a question last night that we argued about for nearly an hour. Remember he's 9. That means he can argue for days about how the power rangers can beat the Justice League. (They couldn’t by the way but that’s an entirely different blog.) Anyway I thought this blog would be particularly interesting.
Here’s the question.
What is the difference between super strength and super speed? I mean if you think about it, wouldn’t super speed be a just a result of super strength. Wouldn’t the muscles in the Flash’s legs have to be super strong to push him along so fast? Wouldn’t say Wonder Woman’s super strength at least give her speed beyond that of mortal men.
What’s your opinion?

The Incredible Hulk vs. Doomsday

Superman has hit Doomsday so hard that he knocked him to a pocket dimension. For Doomsday there’s a flash of light and the next thing that he sees is an enormous green behemoth. It has the temper of a pack of mother bears protecting their young. It’s destroying everything. Doomsday knows a little something about that. As it turns out, this dimension is the Marvel universe. That behemoth is the Incredible Hulk. They spot each other. They don’t know why, but there is an immediate innate hate for one another. It’s the Doomsday that moves first. He moves straight for the Hulk. The Hulk simply cracks his neck and turns another cop car into another pair of boxing gloves. He starts off towards Doomsday. The thunderous sound of their feet hitting the pavement is enough to warn normal people to run for their lives. But the sound doesn’t do the same for you. You stay to be the only surviving witness of the real rumble in the Bronx. (Hulk vs. Doomsday). Tell us the story.
