How can something that breaks many more laws of physics more often be as plausible as something that does it less?

I've already said it is a plot convenience from the start of the discussion so you don't have keep trying to convince me of that.

The Aether will always be found by a plot convenience. It's hidden and the writers need to get it out in the open for there to be a story. It would be just as convenient if instead the dark elves just happened to come back and be able to find it. The Aether didn't needed to be taken to Asgard either, the writers likely just thought that it would be cool to have an invasion of Asgard by the dark elves, as well as some interaction in Asgard regarding the Aether as well as Jane, and needed a reason for them to do so.

If we go to that level you can break down most things like this. I don't see anything out of the ordinary about that Jane meets Thor, he goes away, she starts looking for him, her research puts her in danger causing Thor, who's had to stay away, to act. How does that differ from stories in Thor comics?
