I mean, Thor is a literal god, so it seems like he should win in every avengers movie.

Con

No, the logic fails for four reasons.

1) In the MCU he is portrayed as a member of a race of aliens that happened to be worshipped as gods because they were so technologically advanced that to them technology is essentialyl the same as magic - hence why they have both magic weapons and spaceships.

2) He is a "god" with a lower case g. Even if you consider him a god rather than an alien he has finite power so there is no reason why a non-god could not be more powerful.

3) He fights people like Loki or Hel who are themselves gods, so even if the above two points weren't true being a god wouldn't be an automatic win and he could still lose.

4) We've seen him lose in the movies so we know he doesn't automatically win due to being a god.
