Bruce Banner/Thor Odinson, also known as Thorbruce or Thunderscience, is the slash pairing of Bruce Banner and Thor Odinson in the Marvel Cinematic Universe and Marvel Comics fandoms.


The majority of fanworks tend to be within the MCU fandom. There were some early shippers of the pairing after the release of the The Avengers, however the pairing saw a marked increase in popularity after the release of Thor: Ragnarok, where the two characters spend a great deal of time together.

Common Tropes in Fanworks

  • Domestic Fic: their everyday lives in an established relationship, usually of the fluff variety
  • Mundane AU: where there is no Hulk and Thor is not a God, and they meet under more conventional circumstances, usually in a modern setting
  • High School AU: where they meet in their youth, these fics often have all The Avengers going to high school together
  • First Kiss or First Time: exploring how they would begin a romantic relationship and what a physical relationship between them would be like
  • Post-Thor: Ragnarok: fics written after this film tended to be codas or a continuation of the story, about their time on the spaceship together and their return to Earth, and sometimes the building of a new Asgard. Some writers purposefully chose to ignore canon events and diverge after this point.
  • Hurt/Comfort: usually of the emotional variety, Thor comforting Bruce after his times as the Hulk, and Bruce comforting Thor after traumatic canon events
