Vote up the best Thorbruce thoughts.

Ever since Thor: Ragnarok gave fans a glimpse of the dynamic duo that is Thor and Bruce Banner, the fans are convinced of one thing: Thor and Bruce are soulmates. MCU fans know a dynamic duo when they see one, and Thor and Bruce have a chemistry that has touched the hearts of fans more than any other Marvel duo we've seen yet. We (the fans) love Thorbruce, and we won't be satisfied until we get a 10-part series with no plot besides Thor and Bruce vacationing together while helping each other deal with the trauma of their unresolved pasts.

    They Compliment Each Other When They Need It Most

    From Tumblr user arson-in-the-name-of-gay:

    I never really shipped Thorbruce, (that is the ship name right?) but I recently re-watched Thor: Ragnarok. And despite the fact Bruce was panicking about being on a different planet, finding out he was the Hulk for years, and just all around anxiety/confusion, he stops to complement Thor’s haircut.

    And I just- I just love that.

    From Tumblr user plumebellz:

    Just saw someone compare the scene in Infinity War where Bruce screams at Thanos that he's so screwed now when Thor lands down, to a high school girl saying that someone's in trouble now when her boyfriend shows up.

    And honestly, yeah.

    From Tumblr user cool-i-m-dead-inside:

    Bruce following Thor around on Sakaar because he’s never been to an alien planet before has the exact same energy as when you go to a friends house for the first time and have no idea what to do.

    They Are So Good For Each Other

    From Tumblr user imposterogers:

    I love that in Thor [Ragnarok] Bruce and Thor don’t start off as friends. They don’t think they have anything in common. They never had a reason to talk/hang out before. They’re really just work-friends (if that). But over the course of Ragnarok, they’re forced together, and they realize they’re so compatible??? Thor & Hulk talk about their anger issues, Bruce realizes that Thor is actually super smart and understands complex science. Thor realizes that Bruce is good on his feet and can improvise (fly an alien space ship w/ no experience). They’re both extremely loyal. Bruce is scared to be close to anyone in case the hulk hurts them, but Thor is a match for hulk and has Asgardian physiology! Thor is emotionally wounded, but don’t worry, Bruce Banner is a doctor whose number one goal in life is to help people and is extremely emphatic! brb crying over how they’re literally so good for each other.

    The Weight Of 'I Trust You'

    From Tumblr user maybeishouldwritesomething:

    To Bruce, “I trust you” is not something he says to just anyone.

    “I trust you” means “I know you won’t hurt me”. It means “I can drop my guard and let you see me for who I really am, for better and for worse”. It means “I know I won’t hurt you, I can’t hurt you”. It means “you have me, all of me, for as long as you’ll have me”. The only person Bruce has ever truly felt safe saying this to is Thor, and Thor knows how much it means coming from him.

    To Bruce, “I trust you” means far more than “I love you”.

    They 'Radiate The Same Energy'

    From Tumblr user uhthor:

    I just think they radiate the exact same energy here.

    Thor is looking at Hulk and seeing him for the first time in two years. He sees Hulk as he really is: vulnerable and being taken advantage of. Thor does everything he can to take hulk away from the grandmaster and the contest of champions where he is just a pawn for entertainment and betting and takes every opportunity to get Bruce back from being stuck in Hulk’s trunk. He saw Bruce as more than the Hulk, and he managed to get through to the hulk, too. Thor is the only one of the avengers who cares about both Bruce and Hulk, something that they’ve never experienced before probably ever. And he still believes that Bruce is a hero and doesn’t refuse his help on Asgard. He never forces him to do anything he doesn’t want to, and Bruce ultimately turns into the hulk on Asgard to help by his own choice. FOR THOR.

    Meanwhile, Bruce is looking at Thor and seeing the broken shell that he has tried to put back together to create this facade. He can see that even if he is comedic for Korg and Miek, he isn’t fooling Bruce. He can see that Thor is still just as great a leader and hero despite how he may feel about himself and the issues and grief he is struggling through because it is exactly how Thor saw him six years ago on Sakaar. He recognizes the struggle Thor is going through and sympathizes with it, rather than just shrugging it off. He cares for Thor and cares about the things he’s going through. He wants to offer Thor the lifeline of getting everyone back because he knows it will heal Thor of all the self-ridicule and hatred he’s put himself through for the last five years.

    And to put it briefly, they both saved each other.
