Background[]

Thor comes from the realm of Asgard and is the son of Odin and adoptive brother of Loki. At some point he joins and forms the Avengers prior to the series. Also prior the Avengers have fought Ultron and defeated him. It's unknown if it was after this defeat or not that the Avengers had disbanded.

Great Power[]

Thor is considered by both Nick Fury and Spider-Man as one of the greatest superheroes ever.

Field Trip[]

As "Throg"

Once, Loki sent Thor a trap, by sending a Frost Giant (who he was working with) to Earth, which battled the God of Thunder and a group of young heroes being trained by S.H.I.E.L.D. The battle ended with Thor touching a Norn Stone and being turned into a frog.

Thor returned to Asgard alongside the S.H.I.E.L.D. Trainees, and found it frozen and controlled by Loki, who was in the palace, trying to open a door to Odin's room, where he was under the Odinsleep, and kill him. "Throg" couldn't withstand that battle, even with the help of the young heroes, and had to teleport themselves away. They later found help with Eitri, who provided the heroes with weapons to defeat Loki. After he and the heroes could defeat Loki's Frost Giant minions, Spider-Man tricked Loki to turn Thor back to normal in order to kill him fairly, and was stopped by him, but he teleported away. In order to reward the young hero's courage, Thor gives them a two-headed goat.

Run Pig Run[]

Loki turns Peter into Spider-Ham as payback for Spider-Man ruining his plans. Just then, Asgard's finest hunters led by Skurge, the Executioner arrive and chase after Spider-Ham as part of the Great Boar Hunt. Thor comes to Spider-Ham's aid and the fight leads from Midtown High School to the Helicarrier. Before Executioner can land the killing blow on Spider-Ham, the sun sets ending the hunt. Spider-Ham changes back to Spider-Man and punches Loki.

The Avengers Protocol[]

After Captain America was vaporized by Red Skull, Iron Man activated the Avengers Protocol and called the team through a hologram device to a meeting. The heroes selected by Stark were Thor, Hawkeye, Hulk, Black Widow, and a S.H.I.E.L.D. trainee named Sam Wilson. As The Avengers flew to the HYDRA Base, in Antarctica and learned that Captain America was still alive and was only unreported by M.O.D.O.K. to undergo a body change with his mortal nemesis Red Skull. What ensured was a massive battle that ended up rescuing Captain America. After his defeat by the Avengers, Red Skull realized where the true power resided in the Avengers team and ordered M.O.D.O.K. attack and strip Tony of his Arc Reactor and armor. Now clad in his armor he called himself the Iron Skull. As Tony laid there dying, Tony asked Captain America for help.[1]

The team found the Quinjet blown to pieces. The only option was for them to all squeeze into the S.H.I.E.L.D. flying car. They rush him back to the Avengers mansion where Falcon hooks Tony up to machinery to restart his heart. M.O.D.O.K. use special nanobot with the ability to manipulate the Avengers to turn on each other. During a sparring session between the two, Thor and Hulk were infected by the nanobots. They all battled each other, with only Tony left uninfected. He cured his allies using a concentrated electromagnetic pulse. They found Red Skull trying to steal Tony's tech, who was stopped, but still had time to teleport away. It is then that Tony discovered the Mansion's reactor was about to blow. The team must work together to stop the explosion. They created a vortex shooting the explosive energy into the sky. The team then moved to Stark Tower where they set up home as now a official team.[2]

Itsy Bitsy Spider-Man[]

Thor, Spider-Man, and his team are transformed into children by Loki. The team escape D.A.Y.C.A.R.E. on the Helicarrier only to be attacked by the Destroyer armor. Nick Fury orders the team to leave in a Quinjet, which is destroyed, and they are forced to parachute to a rooftop. Loki possesses the Destroyer as the battle leads to a nearby toy store. They are able to retrieve the Norn Stone, and with Loki released from the Armor, they transform him to a childlike form and return themselves back to normal. For some reason, he calls Spider Man, "Man of Spiders."

Ghost of a Chance[]

The Avengers battle Space Phantoms, extra-dimensional beings who can replicate them right down to cellular level. The creatures replace them one by trapping them in Limbo. But thanks to Falcon he is able to save the team and working together the take down the alien invaders.

The Serpent of Doom[]

The Avengers battle Doctor Doom as he uses the Asgardian weapon Codgel to release the Midgard Serpent with hopes of using it to conquer the globe. The creature is too powerful and would continue to grow until it consumes the Earth. After a battle with the Avengers he and the creature are banished to the Realm Below using the extra-dimensional portal used by Ulik.

Blood Feud[]

The Avengers battle Dracula who had kidnapped Black Widow and turned her into a Vampire. They travel to Transylvania and confront him at Castle Dracula. He reveals that he was an ally of Captain America during World War II, working together to defeat the invading HYDRA forces. He wants the Super-Soldier Serum in Cap's blood which will allow him and his subjects the ability to go out in the sunlight. During the fight he drinks the Hulk's blood absorbing his powers and turning the Hulk into a Vampire. However the Hulk gamma cells act like tiny suns and he burns away the infection, which also weakens Dracula. In his defeat his minions drag him underground to safety.

Super Adaptoid[]

Justin Hammer sends a video message to the Avengers, inviting them to come to his company, so he can show off his new invention: The Super-Adaptoid. The Avengers make quick work of the Adaptoid, prompting Hammer to rebuild the robot and send it to Avengers Tower to attack the team. After a lengthy battle, Captain America and the Avengers manage to destroy the Super-Adaptoid again.

Personality and Traits[]

Thor is a proud and worthy warrior loving to fight for the right side of Earth. He feels it is his duty to protect the people of Earth from the threats that lurk all around the world. Thor is unquestionably a courageous and unselfish being, having said many times he will lay down his life for the innocent. Though he loves flying into battle and hammering opponents, it is revealed in the episode The Midgard Crisis that Thor withholds his full strength and power while fighting alongside the Avengers, even on beings such as the Hulk. This shows that he believes in honor, the way of the warrior, and many other things. He will let those feelings go, however, if he feels a being has wrongly used his or her power against innocence. Thor believes humans are not weak and hopeless like Odin, but fighting people who will never give up for good.

Relationships[]

Hulk[]

Hulk is Thor's teammate and rival. They are always arguing about who is physically stronger, and have competed in numerous of competitions to try to find out, almost always ending in a stalemate. Thor considers Hulk a brother, and gladly fights with him as the muscle of the Avengers. Thor is one of the few who understand the Hulk, which is probably why they get along so well.

Black Widow[]

Natasha and Thor are teammates and have had several episodes in which they bond a bit. The Mind Stone caused Thor to switch bodies with Black Widow for an entire fight with M.O.D.O.K. controlling the entire Tri-Carrier. Even in that form Thor is able to call upon and wield Mjolnir. In Widow's Run she and Thor tried to get rid of the Infinity Stones. When under the Stones control, she asks Thor to get rid of her by sending her away to the Dark Realm, even though his father's law forbids it. He eventually summons the portal to send her away, although he was quite reluctant to do so.

Hawkeye[]

Hawkeye is also Thor's teammate and rival alongside Hulk. Though all three are rivals they can be friends when they need to be. In Back To The Learning Hall, Thor gets an invitation to return to Asgard and decides to go with Hawkeye and Hulk in tow. When they get to the Hall Hulk and Hawkeye realize that Thor hadn't graduated. Eventually they go through the trials as three are only meant to compete. As his teammates passed their trials Thor had opened the door from Valhalla releasing Loki and some undead warriors as he did not answer the second riddle correctly, the first time.

Powers and Abilities[]

Powers[]

Asgardian Physiology: Thor possesses all the conventional attributes of an Asgardian God. However, as the son of Odin, his attributes are more developed than average Asgardians to a certain extent. His power is so advanced that Tony has describe him as a Living Hulkbuster.

  • Superhuman Strength: Thor is physically the strongest of the Asgardian gods. His physical strength enables him to strike objects with Mjolnir to great effect. Thor usually applies his strength by striking an opponent of considerable power with enough force to knock them several meters back. Thor has shown he can go toe-to-toe with Hulk, and with perhaps his hardest swing of Mjolnir he gave the green behemoth amnesia, and dented his face. His fight with Zarda on her island caused powerful tidal waves to almost threaten New York, and a strike from him to Hulk with his bare fist created powerful force waves to knock the waves off their usual course as well.
  • Superhuman Speed: Thor also possesses superhuman speed, enhanced reflexes and agility, shown as when he always moves super-fast, especially when flying. He can fly faster than mach speeds while on Earth, and faster-than-light speeds while in space.
  • Superhuman Stamina: His stamina is almost limitless.
  • Thor survives the Time Stone

    Suspended Aging: Thor, as he stated, is immortal, preventing him from dying from the passage of time. While still aging physically, he retains his youthful appearance far longer than humans, barely changed after Thanos used the Time Stone to age by several centuries, and will only grow stronger the older he gets. However, he is not unkillable.
  • Nigh-Invulnerability: Thor's armor, his skin, bones, and bone tissue being several of times denser than a normal human,and his natural durability allows him great toughness when going against powerful opponents. He is durable enough to withstand energy blasts and great impact forces. He does not require air, water, sleep, or food to survive, and his stamina is enhanced.
  • Accelerated Healing: His metabolism is also far more developed than the average Asgardians', giving him slightly more potent healing abilities. His extreme durability can fail him in battle if he is overwhelmed with many opponents of different powers/abilities, but he can regenerate from such attacks in a short period of time.
  • Self Sustenance: Thor is capable of surviving in the vacuum of space without needing to breathe. Whether or not she requires other sustenance, such as food or water, is unknown.

Abilities[]

  • Master Hand-to-Hand Combatant: Thor is the one of the greatest warriors in Asgard, and has been trained in the arts of war and various fighting techniques since childhood. He is an expert marksman, and is masterful in various areas of combat.
  • Master Hammer Fighter: After centuries of practice wielding his hammer, Thor has become masterful in fighting with Mjolnir and is proficient in hammer throwing. He can even block energy shots with it.

Paraphernalia[]

Mjolnir: Through the use of this mystical hammer, Thor gained another vast set of supernatural powers and abilities. Thor shares a connection with Mjonir, which can be severed both willingly and in the case that Thor dies.

  • Weather Control: The hammer can control the basic elements of a storm. It can create full on storms complete with thunder, lightning, hurricane-force winds, and torrential rains at a moment's notice. Thor can manipulate the elements to his will, such as spinning the hammer around, which releases powerful winds, or by channeling lightning through his body.
  • Energy Manipulation: The hammer can generate, manipulate, and absorb vast quantities of lightning and energy, which, at full power, can smite a small town into oblivion.
  • Worthiness Enchantment: This enchantment surrounding Mjolnir prevents it from being wielded by anyone save those who have been found worthy.
  • Teleportation: The hammer allows Thor to teleport himself to different places in the universe almost instantaneously.
  • Flight: Thor is capable of hurling Mjolnir with great force and, by holding onto the leather thong, is capable of flying through the air at tremendous speeds and is able to perform several aerodynamic feats and chance his own course through the power of thought. He can also hover in air by only constantly spinning the hammer through the thong. Thor has been seen flying and hovering in the air without Mjolnir though.
  • Armor Manifestation: Thor can also transport his Asgradian Battle Armor to himself and "armor up" at any time in case he removes the armor or it undergoes battle damage. His armaments includes: his chestplate, the chain-mail sheathing on his arms, the leather wrist cuff(s), his helmet, and his cape.
  • Healing: As as stated in Norse Mythology, Mjolnir is capable of healing injuries, illness, disorders, infections, alcohol intoxication, etc., by using its magical powers. Thor can even use this ability on himself.
