Image of the Day: Hemsworth's Thor versus the original Hulk ... with Stan Lee as referee!

At long last, the Thor vs. Hulk fight we really wanted to see.

Hey, remember that time in The Avengers when the Hulk punched Thor off-screen? Yeah, that was pretty all right. Wanna see something even better?

Not only is this image from Wizard Con in Sacramento incredible on its own, but it also gave me a great excuse to use a header image from the 1988 classic TV movie The Incredible Hulk Returns, which, no kidding, has the following synopsis:

It’s been two years since the Hulk has surfaced, and Dr David Bruce Banner is on the verge of curing himself of the Hulk. A device he helped create, the Gamma Transponder, will rid him of his own Gamma radiation, among other uses. Enter Don Blake, a former colleague of Banner’s, who is now in possession of a mystic hammer which can summon Thor, an ancient Viking warrior. When the Gamma Transponder is nearly stolen and Banner’s girlfriend is kidnapped, Banner must abandon the hope of being cured and rely on the Hulk and Thor to save the day.

That's ... wow. We've come a long way, baby.
