    IDK that's why this thread is a question. I am not necessarily claiming this is consistent but if it is, then yes they would scale I think. I don't think Thanos's level should be decided by how strong his punches look.

    Considering their displayed feats throughout the movies are nowhere near such levels, I'm going with no.

    No rules against that (though spamming the board is another matter). Don't worry about it. ^_^

    If you want to give MCU Thor feats, how about the fact that, in AOU:

    During Qucksilver's super speed punching of Cap, Thor while in slow motion was visibly moving while Cap and shield were frozen and Iron Man's and Ultron's movements are unnoticeable.
    Then he reacts to QS running at him.

    We have been over and over this feat for years now.

    Best you can say is that Thor had the general sense that QS was coming and so tossed the hammer in that sort of direction. That's the best possible interpretation.

    The fact that 1: The hammer is clearly missing without QS even needing to dodge and 2: Its obvious Thor isnt actually moving in "slow time" like QS is makes it a little nebulous as far as a good feat goes.

    It feels more like an "oh snap" hail mary toss at what he kinda perceives to be where a threat might be.

    Thor is certainly faster then any real world person, but after 3 solo movies and 3 more movies where he is prominently featured, it's pretty obvious the conclusion is that he is NOT presented as some sort of speedster.

    4 more movies where he was prominently featured. He was in all four Avengers movies.

    Yes, sorry. Math is hard.

    For what it's worth:

    - Loki does fall fully into that wormhole/portal/whatever it is within a few seconds.
    - He wasn't going anything close to FTL speeds. He was clearly going slower than he would do if he was falling under normal Earth gravity conditions.
    - Those weren't stars.

    Those aren't assumptions. Those are factual statements based on what actually happened on screen.
