** ''The Lost Gods''/[[Comicbook/HeroesReborn]]. The late nineties in general were not a good time for Thor.

** The reveal that Thor is going to be replaced with a new female wielding Mjolnir has already caused a large base breaker for all manner of different reasons. Some like it, some hate it, some like the idea but hate the execution, some merely find it pointless, among other issues.
** The rest of Jason Aaron's run after the God-Butcher arc. It's either awesome or complete crap, especially after female Thor is introduced.
** The fact that Jason Aaron [[AuthorAppeal likes]] to write Thor as MysteryFiction (God of Thunder 1st arc: serial killer investigation, 3rd arc: hunt after an escaped criminal, {{Comicbook/Thor|2014}} v4 1st arc: the mystery of the Goddess of Thunder, [[Comcibook/SecretWars2015 Thors]]: serial killer investigation) sometimes works for people other times not so much.
** The identity of the female Thor ([[spoiler:Jane Foster]]) has fans divided because many thought, and liked the idea of her identity being [[spoiler: Roz Solomon]]. While some are interested in what could be done with a Thor who [[spoiler: has cancer]], others think it just gives the character a poor shelf life.

** Creator/JackKirby gets this occasionally as well, with quite a number of fans feeling his initial ''Journey into Mystery'' run to be [[SeinfeldIsUnfunny mediocre by today's standards]]. Once it made the transition to ''The Mighty Thor'', though, it's near universally regarded to have GrownTheBeard.

* ToughActToFollow: While Matt Fraction's run is considered by most to be a DorkAge, he ''did'' have to follow-up the beloved and critically acclaimed J. Michael Straczynski run...

** The quality of Creator/WarrenEllis' short stint on the title during the 90's. Some fans find it horrible because Thor lost most of his powers, stopped wearing a costume, and shacked up with Enchantress, while others claim that it was an interesting new direction for Thor, and that it was a welcome change after the long run of terrible storylines that Thor had been subjected to for most of the early 90's.

** The Godpack era under Roy Thomas, where Thor got an absolutely abysmal new costume and started palling around with a team of immortals created by the High Evolutionary.



** Warren Ellis' run, in which Thor lost all of his powers and started living with Enchantress as a couple. This example was considered so horrible that every other writer at Marvel [[CanonDiscontinuity flat out ignored it]] even as it was ongoing.

** Post-''Comicbook/SecretWars2015'', Marvel began teasing the idea that Thor would be given the hammer of his Comicbook/UltimateMarvel counterpart. The followup arc then showed that Thor had found it...[[DistressedDude but was being held captive somewhere]]. Then they announced ''The Unworthy Thor'' ongoing series...and Thor still failed to get the hammer several issues in and ''also'' turned down receiving the hammer of Comicbook/BetaRayBill. At this point fans are just desperate for Thor to have a hammer, ''any'' hammer.

At this point fans are just desperate for Thor to have a hammer, ''any'' hammer. This is made even worse by the fact that at the series conclusion, when Thor finally has a chance to gain the Ultimate Mjolnir, he refuses to, instead allowing some other, new Thor to take it instead.

** As of 2017, fans still didn't know what made Thor unworthy.

** Marvel's attitude toward the character grated on some people. Specifically, the insistence that the female Thor wasn't intended as "a woman who has Thor's powers" in the same way that Beta-Ray Bill is "an alien with Thor's powers" but rather "she's the new Thor; she's actually Thor." As Linkara put it:
--->'''Linkara:''' The problem is, Thor isn't a costumed identity, its the name he was born with! It would be a bit like Sam Wilson putting on the red-white-and-blue tights, picking up the shield, and calling himself 'Steve Rogers' instead of Captain America! And that's just wrong!"
