Don't assume I haven't read any of his earlier comics-- makes you look ignorant. I've got a shitload of Journey into Mystery on hardcopy.
Okay Mister wiseguy then you would know the feat is not that great. Anyways lets begin..
What Thor did in that scan , and what a number of people have passed it to be , is similar to the claim that Superman is capable of blowing planets with his heat vision, or holding them in his hand , based on these scans , where he is in the New Gods world, interacting with the normal(mainstream DC) universe . Similar statements regarding the New Gods can be made as well , based on this scaling up phenomenon:http://i1050.photobu...zps59c3c6ec.jpghttp://i1050.photobu...zps002c572f.jpghttp://i1050.photobu...zps736115c0.jpg
Now , to begin with , the Serpent crush Earth in normal space , it went into the Void(notice its size in Asgard-space , nowhere near continent , country or even city wide) :
Again , here the Serpent is mentioned to be in its ethereal form , in the regular Earth-Space:
That's why , as Thor mentions here , he'll have to venture to Asgard to deal with the Serpent there , as it was crushing Earth in normal space:http://i1050.photobu...zps3c3f3063.png
Once there , Thor Persuade Hamir the Giant to help him travel by the former's ship to the Void between Earth and Asgard and uses the Hamir's Bull as a bait to fish out the Serpent:http://i1050.photobu...zps1a6abccb.jpghttp://i1050.photobu...zps5ef9ab84.jpghttp://i1050.photobu...zpseb5466eb.jpg
Now that all concerned parties are in the Void , its made clear that the Serpent is nowhere near continent sized(let alone of planetary proportions) . In fact its of normal monstrous proportions relative to even Thor himself:http://i1050.photobu...zps10bf5c53.jpghttp://i1050.photobu...zps82734071.jpghttp://i1050.photobu...zpse2caffdd.jpg
In fact it is stated by the narrative here that in the Void , space and time don't operate normally:
Within the context of Thor # 327(in which the above discussed feat takes place) , the Void(like the differently scaled New Gods Dimension that I showed as an reference point in the beginning of my post) between Asgard-space and Earth-space doesn't follow the normal rules of space-time . Hence why despite being big enough to wrap up the whole planet within its coils while in the Void , the Midgard Serpent was still small enough for Thor to use a mouth-fitting bull to fish it off from Earth . This is why the Serpent is , in proportion to Thor , roughly as big as what a Pleistocene era sea monster would be in comparison to a normal man.To sum it up: This feat is far less impressive than what its been made out to be. Its not even close to planetary-level strength. Hell I don't even use that scan for Thor anymore and Thor has way more impressive strength feats than that, like the World Train Engine. But that was when Thor already surpassed Wonder Man easily.
Regardless, Journey into Mystery #92. Thor knocks over the Leaning Tower of Pisa by tapping it lightly with his finger. Ergo, you're wrong.
Um....Any 90 tonner can do that...I would put money down that Namor can easily do that.
Hell here's the Thing holds up a oil rig.
And the Thing is no where near 100 tons. Probably only 80 tons. So I don't know why you're trying to act all macho.
Anyways back to the match.
