Well both could steal someones girlfriend in a heartbeat.
Much much much much cooler. But you ask this in the Iron Man thread and IM will win the poll.
Thor had better fight scenes.
Thor was Incredible, Chris Hemsworth was absolutely sensational as THE GOD OF THUNDER !!!! PREFECT CASTING !!!
Thor was mostly funny and charming because of his ignorance of human life and other completely accidental things...Tony Stark is charming because he knows how to work people. Tony is cooler.
I can't wait for Thor and Tony to meet.
Who was COOLER? RDJ as Iron Man was cooler. However, I think the performances were both equally good. RDJ was maybe more entertaining, but Hemms was more layered.
I'll put down "tie" since this is the Thor board and Hemsworth is the man.
But come on, no one on Gods green earth is cooler than Robert Downey Jr. And I'm not saying that as an Iron Man fanatic.
It's too bad Thor learned humility. He was fantastic as a dick during the Frost Giant battle.
God ... no wonder they called this place the "hype". That's all you guys do. This lot of fans has such short memory banks. I remember last year reading here people saying Iron Man 2 was way better than the original right after it came out, while to most none punch drunk love with the new thing people knew it wasn't even close to its predecessor.
Same goes here.
Thor was a little charming at times ...
But you're comparing him to Robert Downey Jr. The range he has in his performance as Tony Stark is what made the entire movie. Not his scenes in a mechanized robot suit, but his character arc scenes.
Downey Jr's Stark had a wider emotional range, and was just flat out more charasmatic and bad ass. Funny, emotional, the whole nine yards. Still one of the standards, along side Bale's Bruce / Batman, Reeve's Clark / Superman, and Bana's Banner / Hulk, Snipes' Blade for my money ...
No one will be cooler than Iron Man, but Thor isn't really supposed to be a "cool" character. He's supposed to be a daring, yet a little brash, and cocky God-like hero who typically has a heart of gold and always tries to do the right thing.
Tony Stark is a playboy supergenius alcoholic....you can't get cooler than that.
This is a very tough question and one I can't answer. Both fit the roles so damn perfectly, it's just so hard to form some opinion.
Stark can be kinda of a *****e, and even treats his friends terribly at times. Thor is consistently a great guy to be around with.
You mean like that one time where he was in total battle mode and didn't pay attention to his comrades well being, until it was almost too late?
Different kind of cool, but tie.
Stark is a charismatic, reckless, alcoholic, womanizing playboy ...
Total opposite end of the nerd spectrum.
He's just naturally gifted with intelligence. He almost does everything within his power to negate his natural abilities because he's so cool and reckless.
Now thats a nerd, a dork.
Thor? Entitled jock like 1st born ...
The mythos and world he inhabits and the names of stuff? Now THAT'S nerdy and dorky.
That one is my opinion, that I slipped in there. I'm not sheep people. And I don't just love something because it's brand new.
Smugness is unbecoming
Insulting the people that have been here for years gives us new guys a bad name.
Neither do I.
oh ok. then just agree to disagree.
Thor is way cooler than Iron Man in my book.
Both Chris and Robert were awesome in their roles but I'm only judging on the actual movies and not the characters themselves so I pick Iron Man as more cooler.
