Thor is the larger then life Demi-god from the
Mega billion dollar blockbuster 'The Avengers.' Thor can also be
found in the film 'Thor,' 'Hulk vs. Thor, 'Planet Hulk,' 'Next
Avengers: Heroes of Tomorrow,' 'Thor & Loki: Blood Brothers,' 'Thor:
Tales of Asgard,' 'Ultimate Avengers 1 and 2,' and in the upcoming
film 'Thor: The Dark World' hitting theaters in November 2013. In
television shows he can be seen in 'Avengers: Earth's Mightiest
Heroes,' 'Ultimate Spiderman,' 'Marvel's: The Super Hero Squad
Show,' and the upcoming new Disney XD series 'Avengers: Assemble.'
He can also be found in the video game Thor: God of Thunder. In
other merchandise he can be found in comic books, toys, clothing,
and other collectables.
He was actually born in Norway but lives in Asgard.
He has many people he can count on such as the rest of the avengers,
Odin (father), Frigga (mother), Mjolnir (his hammer), Jane Foster,
The Warriors Three, Spiderman, and Sif. His enemies include Loki,
Destroyer, Dr. Doom, Amora the Enchantress, Mephisto, and the Frost
*FUN FACT* In the film 'Thor' Jane Foster offers
Thor a shirt from her ex boyfriend Donald Blake. In the comics Odin
exiles Thor to Earth (Midgard). While there he is a crippled doctor
named Donald Blake and works with Jane Foster. It was a fantastic
nod to the comic books.
Thor wears a very dynamic suit which consists of
metal chain links for his arms and shoulders, black pants, a black
and blue armored vest with 6 silver pods on the front, black forearm
bands, black boots, black shin guards, a red cape, and a magic
hammer that allows him to fly and control lightning. Mjolnir has a
scripture saying "Whosoever holds this hammer, if he be worthy,
shall possess the power of Thor."
He was created by Stan Lee, Jack Kirby, and Larry
Lieber. He is played by Chris Hemsworth in the Films and he has been
voiced by Matthew Wolf, Dave Boat, Travis Willingham, Rick D.
Wasserman, and Michael Adamthwaite,
Thor cannot be found in Disney parks at this time
but with all of Marvel gaining popularity it will only be a matter
of time before we start seeing Marvel integrated into the theme
parks in my opinion.
