Who's Who? Wednesday

Thor Odinson

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 Giants.

*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.
