The Norse Poll. Who is Thor's all-time greatest enemy?

Journey into Mystery #83, Thor swings his hammer has he is surrounded by the descending Stone Men from Saturn, first appearance and origin, Jack Kirby
With his flowing blond locks, fluttering cape and wingy helmet, who doesn't love Thor: God of Thunder?

Well, plenty of people it'd seem as, over the years, he's managed to acquire more foes than you can shake a hammer at. But just who is the thunder god's greatest ever enemy?

There's plenty of contenders. There's Loki, Mangog, the Absorbing Man, the Wrecker, Ulik the Unstoppable, the Stone Men from Saturn and, of course, Odin.

I'll always have a soft spot for Hela thanks to the fact she's managed to kill him on more than one occasion.

But who can forget such foes as Mr Hyde, the Cobra, and that lava man bloke? I can't remember what his name was; so, given Stan Lee's love of alliteration, I'll assume it was Larry the Lava Man.

Regardless of such well-informed musings, put forward your favourites and, in a couple of days from now, I'll put the poll up.

And at last the world can decide just who is Thor's greatest ever enemy.

My favourite Thor storyline is the one that begins with Tana Nile and the Colonizers then continues into the Bioverse, ending up in Wundagore. But I'm going to pick the Destroyer.
Not the Dr. Weird one from Capt. Marvel; the metal one from the jungle.

I was always a big fan of the Destroyer.

I'd imagine Thor's greatest enemy would turn out to be his horn-helmeted half-brother. Or maybe it's someone more low-key...

Low-key? Geddit?

Oh, please yerselves...

I'm tempted to say Odin, but let's go with Loki.

Greatest adversary: Odin.
Greatest enemy: Loki.

It's gotta be Loki, although my favourites were Mangog and the Destroyer - Enchantress was a wee pain at times to him - McScotty

No love for Zarrko? Don't blame anyone for that!

My pick would be Grey Gargoyle as the less obvious choice (lets face it the answers Loki). Don't think he's powerful? He recently turned Paris to stone (temporarily).
