The best thing about Thor, to me, is that even when the Hulk is actively trying to kill him, his instinct is to appeal to the better nature that he knows exists somewhere inside there. It’s why he won’t give up on Loki, no matter how many awful things Loki does.
Because Loki is his brother and he remembers when they were inseparable kids and he knows something went wrong somewhere, but he still believes in the brother that he grew up with.
And he barely knows Bruce Banner. They literally just met and Thor is still trying to talk to him, he’s still trying to reach the gentle, rational man that he knows is in there. Because he did learn his lesson, he knows that violence doesn’t have to be the first resort.
That’s why Thor is my favorite Avenger, and why it makes me so angry when people characterize him as stupid and only good for punching things.
