You are free to offer your opinions on a show, episode, book, film, film series, cinematic universe, etc., as long as it applies to that item, and not to the stated or assumed political views of the producers, writers, actors, key grip, best boy, intern, etc., of said item. In short, you want to talk about a show or movie, talk about the show or movie.

Others are free to disagree with your opinion. (You are not entitled to express your opinion in a vacuum.) BUT that opposing opinion must follow the same requirements above that the original opinion had to follow, as well as not bringing in the assumed political views of the original poster. (I leave out "stated" as they should not state any political position here on STPMA.)

ALSO, do not toss about derogatory labels at someone who offers an opinion in opposition to yours. No name calling, political labels (SJW, etc.,) questioning their humanity, morality, ethics, true fan status, or your assumption they are in the business to protect a certain fandom (gatekeeping, etc.). Again, discuss the show or movie not the politics or motives of another poster.

If you dislike something, it's perfectly fine to say so. However, posting your dislike every time someone else says anything positive about a show or movie, essentially stating the same thing over and over again is not acceptable. If you have something new to add, or are replying to a specific point in someone else's comment, okay. But if it's just to state once again, "IT SUCKS!" Don't.

... I went on a bit of a rant.
The issue’s become a joke, now.

Writers are regularly powering the Hulk up. The original Gray Hulk. Savage Hulk. Joe Fixit/Neo-Gray Hulk. Professor Hulk. The Maestro. World War Hulk. World Breaker Hulk. Nul. Immortal/Devil Hulk. No doubt there are others I missed. Honestly, I don’t give a shit.

Just … stop.

I’ve noticed a certain immaturity in many Hulk fans and, frankly, most of his writers.

“HE HAS DA INFINITE POWAH! HE CANZ BEAT UP ANYONE! GOD COULDN’T STOP THE HULK! HE IIISSSS GOD!”

Yeah … obnoxious, tiresome and blasphemous all at once.

He, along with the Sentry, Franklin Richards and a few other “heroes”, are so inappropriately powerful that the stories are just not compelling to anyone with half a brain and any sense of restraint or subtlety.

Who would win? Whoever the writer wants to win, and most of Marvel’s, with their twelve-year-old fan-boy mentality, favor the Hulk nowadays.

Who should win? That’s obvious to anyone who wasn’t either a bully or bullied themselves (while learning all the wrong lessons from it), and who reveres anything other than brutes exerting force.

Thor is not only a god, he’s a character with some. The Hulk is a thug—a scared little kid given immense power.

Enough, already.
I've really grown to hate the Hulk.

I tend to favor the MCU Hulk for this reason. He is shown to be far more limited in power. In Thor Ragnarok it is not only shown that an unrestrained Thor is more than a match for Hulk and Fenris was able to bite Hulk and make him bleed. If he can bleed, he can lose.

Infinity War showed clearly the gap in power now. Thanos messed up both at the start of the movie, by the end Thor sunk the Stormbreaker into Thanos's chest. I think this massive increase in power with the Stormbreaker in his hands it is clear that there is a world of difference between them power wise.

Put simply, in the MCU Thor is by far stronger than the Hulk. I think there are still stronger forces... like Thanos with the completed Infinity Gauntlet.

Agreed on all points.
