Re: "You ready for another Bout?"- The Thor/Chris Hemsworth Thread
I think its a greatly exaggerated issue, if there's anything there at all. Thor and Loki are at least as human as, say, Angel. More human by a long shot than Illyria.
All that happened is that Thor's role in the plot happened to be more limited, because of everything else happening. Loki still was the main villain, still played everyone like a fiddle, and Thor still got to kick ass.
