Not to mention the superpowered destruction that had already been wrought by the individual Avengers themselves (Harlem was Hulk smashed, for heaven's sake). After a while people get kinda jaded by all these superpowered activities.
Oh, another god? Fine. Whatever.
lol; perhaps, but Thor and Loki were the first extraterrestrial beings that they had encountered, thus like Fury said, proving that human beings weren't the only ones in the universe.
If I had to make an argument, I'd say that people were more in awe of Steve Rogers, due to his World War 2 heroics and legends, and more conscious of Banner due to his ability to turn into the Hulk than they were of Thor, the Asgardian God of Thunder just casually walking about on the Hellcarrier.lol
