- "You'll be a wise king."
- ―Odin to Thor
Thor Odinson was once an arrogant prince from the distant land of Asgard until he was banished to Earth because his irresponsible behavior threatened his homeland. While in exile on Earth, Thor learned humility, found love in Jane Foster, and helped to save his new friends from a destructive threat sent by his jealous adoptive brother Loki. In the process, Thor redeemed himself in the eyes of his father, Odin, the King of Asgard. After being welcomed back to Asgard as a hero, Thor visited Earth to retrieve Loki after Loki began his attempt to take over the world. He joined the Avengers and fought with them against the Chitauri during the Battle of New York. After he returned to Asgard he helped Asgard's armies restore peace to the Nine Realms. He fought against the Dark Elves during the Second Dark Elf Conflict, killing their leader, Malekith, and ending the threat. During these events he was reunited with Jane Foster after she became host to the Aether and became a target of the Dark Elves. He renounced his claim to the throne and left Asgard for Earth so he could stay with Jane.
Thor had an idyllic childhood, brought up in Asgard as the treasured son of Odin and his wife Frigga. His best friend and playmate was his adopted brother Loki, and though they were rivals for their father's throne, they still remained close companions. Loki was taught magic by their mother, while Thor was taught how to be a warrior by their father.
Brought up in the warrior culture of the Asgardians, Thor valued strength, courage, and loyalty above all else. He desired to be exactly like his father, the war hero, and often remarks on the monsters he will slay and the wars he will win when he is king.
He proves himself a great warrior, often leading his band of warriors (which includes Loki, the Lady Sif, and the Warriors Three) on adventures. However, he is also known to be reckless when Loki jokingly reminds him that he would be dead had he not used a smoke veil to allow them to escape during one battle.
- "Do you swear to guard the nine realms?"
"And do you swear to preserve the peace?"
"Do you swear to cast aside your selfish ambition and to pledge yourself only to the good of the realms?"
"And on this day, I Odin, All-Father, will proclaim you..."
- ―Odin and Thor
Odin decides to make Thor king and ruler of Asgard as he is about to finally enter the Odinsleep after putting it off for so long. Thor revels in the ceremony and undergoes the passage of becoming king from Odin. As Odin is about to name Thor King, he senses that Frost Giants have snuck into Asgard and into Odin's Vault to steal the Casket of Ancient Winters. Odin, Thor and Loki go to the vault to find the Frost Giants slayed by The Destroyer. Thor says that they must go to Jotunheim and scare the Giants from ever trespassing in Asgard again. Odin says that the trespassers were a few and that they paid with their life but Thor says as King of Asgard he will lead an army to Jotunheim as Odin did before him. Odin says that he is not King yet.
In their quarters, Thor begins throwing tables around in anger. Loki convinces him that they must go to Jotunheim before Sif and the Warriors Three arrive and Thor announces they are going to Jotunheim and that he will lead them to victory. They travel to the Bifrost Bridge and seek passage to Jotunheim and ask Heimdall's permission. Heimdall grants it and sends them to Jotunheim but says that if they get into trouble they shall not be granted entrance back. In Jotunheim, Thor leads the warriors to King Laufey's chamber where he warns them to leave whilst he still allows them. One of the Frost Giants approaches Thor before Loki leads him away until the Frost Giant calls Thor a princess. Thor unleashes his anger and the mighty power of Mjølnir and the warriors bravely battle the Frost Giants. Fandral is struck by a Frost Giant and warns Thor to pull back. Thor tells them to get out of there whilst he battles the Frost Giants.
- "Thor Odinson, you have betrayed the express command of your king. Through your arrogance and stupidity, you have opened these peaceful realms and innocent lives to the horror and desolation of war! You are unworthy of these realms!"
As his friends leave and reach the Bifrost Bridge, Thor unleashes the full power of Mjølnir and erupts the ground around him killing hundreds of Frost Giants, before flying at full speed to kill Laufey's beast that was chasing the Asgardians. Laufey and his whole army then surround Thor who are at the edge of a cliff.
Before they attack, Odin arrives and warns Laufey telling him to preserve the peace and not respond to the actions of a boy. Laufey says that war has begun so Odin transports he and the other Asgardians back to Asgard. Back in the Bifrost, Thor tells the Warriors Three to take Fandral to the Healing Room. Odin then chastises Thor for his reckless actions saying that he would sacrifice the lives of innocent people to go to war and that they are not the actions of a King, but a warrior. Thor tells Odin he is an old man and a fool who takes Mjølnir from Thor and removes his powers before using the Bifrost to send Thor to Earth.
Cast off to EarthEdit
- "You! What realm is this? Alfheim, Niflheim?"
- ―Thor and Darcy Lewis
Thor is sent through the Bifrost Bridge arriving to Earth in a wormhole, which is being studied by Dr. Jane Foster, Dr. Erik Selvig and their understudy Darcy Lewis. Thor stands only to be knocked over by the truck they are driving. He awakens realizing he is on Earth and begins shouting to Heimdall to open the Bifrost. The Humans believe Thor to be crazy and when Darcy threatens Thor with a taser, he is disgusted at her actions and she tasers him.
He awakens in a hospital with a man over him saying he is about to take some blood. Unaware of his surroundings, Thor attacks the hospital staff and security guards taking on dozens before being sedated. He awakens again to find himself strapped down but manages to squeeze out of the restraints and heads for the exit before being hit again by a car, again driven by Jane. They take him back to their Wormhole Research Center where Jane gives him some clothes. Thor says that he is hungry and they take him to Isabel's Diner. He eats enormous amounts of food astonishing the 3 before smashing his cup on the floor demanding another drink. Jane tells him that if he wants another he should ask nicely before Thor overhears Pete and Jake talking about a "satellite" that crashed to Earth. Thor realizes it is Mjølnir and asks for directions. He says goodbye to Jane, Erik and Darcy and begins to walk to Mjølnir. Realizing as a mortal it is too far, goes to the local pet store for a horse. The owner says they don't have horses only cats, dogs and other house animals to which Thor asks for one large enough to ride. He leaves unsatisfied to see Jane again who offers him a ride.
Jane tells Thor that S.H.I.E.L.D. stole all of her research and Thor promises to tell her everything she wants to know about the wormholes when he reclaims what is his. They arrive at the site to find it covered by a makeshift research facility. Thor sneaks in and takes down Agents Jackson and Delancey before being noticed and begins making his way to Mjølnir taking down guard after guard, before coming across a particularly big guard who Thor ultimately defeats outside. Finally at Mjølnir Thor rejoices before gripping his mighty hammer but can't lift it, using all his mortal strength he still cannot lift it and falls to his knees. He is taken for questioning by Agent Phil Coulson but doesn't respond to any questions and then Loki arrives in front of him to tell him that Odin is dead and that Thor must remain on Earth to maintain peace with Jotunheim. Agent Coulson then returns to find Thor saying goodbye to thin air.
Dr. Selvig then approaches telling S.H.I.E.L.D. that Thor is Dr. Donald Blake their colleague who is drunk and Agent Coulson lets him go so he can follow them. Thor and Selvig go for a drink where Thor's drinking prowess leads to them getting into a bar brawl and Thor taking a heavily drunk Selvig back to Jane's camper. Thor and Jane go to the roof of the Research Center and gaze at the stars and Thor begins to tell Jane about the Nine Realms and Yggdrasil, the World Tree, before watching over her as she sleeps.
- "So is this how you normally look?"
"More or less."
"It's a good look!"
- ―Jane Foster and Thor
The next day Thor's attitude has taken a change for the better and makes breakfast with Jane Foster when they are interrupted by the Warriors Three and Sif who have found Thor. Thor rejoices to see them before they inform him that Odin is alive and that Loki is king and showed the Frost Giants the way into Asgard until they see another Wormhole in the distance realizing Loki has sent forces after them. Thor, Jane, Erik Selvig and Darcy Lewis begin to evacuate the town as the Warriors Three and Sif formulate a plan to stop the Destroyer. The Destroyer begins attacking the town destroying everything in its path and knocks back the Warriors Three before being seemingly stopped by Sif's Double-bladed Sword. The Destroyer simply rearranges its body to face Sif and seems unstoppable.
Thor tells them to fall back and that he has a plan. Thor approaches the Destroyer and speaks to Loki through it telling him that he is sorry and that he can't kill the innocent people and instead take him. Loki seemingly relents before using the Destroyer to send Thor flying backwards. Thor is dying and Jane comes to his aid and sits with him before he dies. The Destroyer continues to destroy the town before Mjølnir flies to Thor and returns his powers. Thor then creates a tornado around the Destroyer and engages it deflecting its beams before disabling it. Thor then tells Agent Phil Coulson who arrives that he must return Jane's research if he wants his help in the future as they fight on the same side. Thor then promises to show Jane the Bifrost Bridge and flies her to the Bifrost site. Asking to open the Bifrost, Heimdall doesn't respond and the Warriors Three and Sif arrive and he still doesn't reply.
- "You can't kill an entire race!"
"Why not? And what is this new found love for the Frost Giants? You, who could have killed them all with your bare hands."
"So have I."
- ―Thor and Loki
Heimdall eventually answers and the Asgardians return. Thor then flies to Odin's Chamber to see his mother Frigga and Loki who is shocked to see him. Thor reveals Loki's deception. Loki says he did it all to impress his father and be Thor's equal and says he will destroy Jotunheim using the Bifrost Bridge and attacks Thor who refuses to fight his brother. Loki sends Thor flying through the wall of the chamber and heads to the Bifrost where he begins the process of destroying Jotunheim. Thor flies to the Bifrost and engages Loki where it goes to the Bifrost Bridge.
Thor manages to tie Loki down by placing Mjølnir on top of him and goes to stop the Bifrost but it is too far gone to stop now. Thor doesn't want to destroy the Bifrost because then he can't return to Earth to see Jane Foster but for the sake of the Nine Realms, calls Mjølnir to him and begins destroying the Rainbow Bridge and the Bifrost falls away from Asgard in an almighty explosion and into the abyss of space. Thor and Loki are caught by Odin who returned from the Odinsleep and Loki reveals he did it all for him before letting go and falling into the abyss.
As the Asgardians celebrate, Thor goes to see his father telling him he was wrong for his prior actions and that he has a lot to learn from him. Thor then goes to see Heimdall asking if there is any hope of returning to Earth. Heimdall tells him there is always hope. Thor asks what Jane Foster is doing and Heimdall replies she is looking for Thor.
Protector of The Nine RealmsEdit
- "With the death of Laufey and Loki's attack on their world, the Frost Giants are a broken people... and yet they sense something has happened. The Troll Lords know it as well. For many millennia, they have coveted the Dwarven forges. Once they realize that Asgard cannot come to king Eitri's defense, they will strike. Despite their primitive nature, the Badoon feel our absence. Several of their clans have fallen into civil war. Their savagery and bloodlust will eventually spread from planet to planet unchanged. And the marauders amass near Vanaheim. Thor's destruction of the Bifrost continues to shift the balance of power across the Nine Realms... and into the worlds beyond Yggdrasil."
A few days after Thor defeated Loki, Heimdall had discovered that destroying the Bifrost Bridge has put all of the Nine Realms in danger. He informs Odin and Thor of this. Thor fears for his friend Hogun's people in Vanaheim and warns him.
One year after defeating Loki, Imir, a rouge Asgardian, threatens to take control of Asgard and kidnaps several Dwarves. While Imir manages to get the upper hand on Thor, he is eventually defeated when Thor electrocutes him with Mjølnir.
Three months after defeating Imir, Frigga manages to contact Loki in Chitauri Space. She informs Thor, Odin, and the Warriors Three of this and that he is planning an attack on Earth involving the Tesseract. Odin calls upon the power of dark energy - the very fabric of the universe itself - to send Thor to Earth to stop him, at the cost of his own and Thor's health. An unconscious Thor lands on a mountain, not far from Loki's location.
Arrival back to EarthEdit
- "Where's the Tesseract?"
"I missed you too."
"Do I look to be in a gaming mood?"
"Oh, you should thank me. With the Bifrost gone, how much dark energy did the All-Father have to muster to conjure you here? Your precious earth."
- ―Thor and Loki
Thor tries to convince Loki to give up his plans and return home to Asgard with the Tesseract, though Loki still resents Thor. Iron Man attacks him and the two trade blows when Iron Man refuses to allow Thor to take their prisoner. When Captain America intervenes, he points out that they shouldn't be fighting with each other, and asks Thor to put Mjølnir down. In response, Thor brings his hammer down on Captain America, who blocks it with his shield which absorbs the impact, shocking Thor, who realizes they have the same goal and so stops fighting.
- "Loki's gonna drag this out. So, Thor, what's his play?"
"He has an army called the Chitauri, that none of Asgard nor any world know. He means to lead them against your people. They will win him the Earth. In return, I suspect, for the Tesseract."
- ―Steve Rogers and Thor
They return to the Helicarrier, where Loki is put into a cell designed to hold and dispose of the Hulk if necessary. Thor is quick to point out that while Loki is unstable he is his brother, though when it is brought up that Loki has killed several people, Thor quickly reasserts that Loki was adopted. Later he asks Agent Phil Coulson about Jane Foster and is told that she was moved to a secure location when Loki returned and Erik Selvig was put under his control. Nick Fury asks what Thor is prepared to do in order to keep Loki's plans from reaching fruition, though he is unsure.
Later as Thor and the others argue, Loki's mind controlled henchmen blow up one of the Helicarrier's engines and help free Loki, also triggering Banner to transform into the Hulk. Thor fights the Hulk, being the only one who can match him for strength. After the Hulk has been led off of the Helicarrier, Thor goes to make sure Loki is still contained. When he arrives the cell door is open, and Thor tries to stop Loki leaving but it turns out to be an illusion and Thor gets trapped in the cell. Loki threatens to drop the cage when Coulson confronts him with a gun made from the Destroyer, however Loki stabs Coulson and drops Thor. As he plummets towards Earth, Thor manages to smash free from the cell just in time to avoid the impact. Afterwards his connection to Mjølnir had temporarily been severed. He then picks up the hammer and regains his power.
- "Loki, turn off the Tesseract or I'll destroy it!"
"You can't. There is no stopping it. There is only the war!"
"So be it."
- ―Thor and Loki
After recovering, Thor uses Mjølnir's powers to replenish his strength before he heads to New York City to confront Loki. Arriving at Stark Tower once Loki has used the Tesseract to open a portal allowing the Chitauri and Leviathan to invade Earth, Thor again tries to convince him to stop, since the Chitauri are destroying the world he wants to rule. Failing, he briefly clashes with his brother before Loki flees on a Chitauri vessel. Thor joins Captain America, Black Widow and Hawkeye on the battlefield, and starts helping to fight the Chitauri, before Iron Man and Hulk join them. Captain America orders Thor to use his power to stem the flow of enemies coming through the portal, which he does using lightning bolts, before joining the battle.
While flying around in New York City, Iron Man asks Thor if he has ever seen Game of Thrones, saying he reminds him of it. Thor then asks Iron Man how he can make jokes in the middle of a war. He is then eaten by a Leviathan. In a blind rage, Thor uses Mjølnir to get out of the Leviathan.
He later helps Hulk bring down a Leviathan, though when they are done Hulk punches him for earlier. Soon Iron Man sends a nuclear missile intended for the city through the portal, which destroys the Chitauri Command Center, cutting off the forces from their power source and died, while Black Widow closes the portal.
Once the crisis is over, Thor joins the other Avengers in confronting Loki, who had already been heavily wounded and battered by the Hulk, and took him into custody.
Saving the Nine RealmsEdit
- "To fight, to bleed, to die for those we love and cherish. To wage war on those who would kill any who cannot defend themselves. To hold back the ever-growing tide of Ragnarok that comes to calm us all. This is not our duty. It is the reason for our very existence. Since the days of Bor and Buri before him, we have protected the Nine Realms. But for too long, Asgard has been cut off from those who depend on our blood and courage for their survival. Without our light, darkness spreads. But the time of darkness is at an end. Asgard returns. And there will be Hel to pay!"
After bringing Loki back to Asgard, Thor discovered that Vanaheim is getting slowly taken over by Marauders. Thor gave Heimdall the Tesseract so he can remake the Bifrost Bridge and the Asgardians can help protect the Nine Realms again. He then, with an army of Asgardians, goes to end the threats controlling the Nine Realms.
War of the RealmsEdit
- "I've got this completely under control"
"Is that why everything is on fire?"
- ―Sif and Thor
A year after Thor helped the Avengers in saving Earth from the Chitauri, a group of rag-tag invaders known as the Marauders started a war across all the Nine Realms. Thor, now a full-time general of the Asgardian army, bravely led his forces in a fight against the attackers. With Sif, Volstagg, Fandral and Hogun, they team up to with Thor killing a rock giant in Vanaheim.
That’s the final battle in a two-year war. After the battle is won Thor tells Hogun to stay there with his people as the rest of them go back to Asgard via the Bifrost Bridge, which was repaired with the power of the Tesseract. A party is held for Thor, for restoring the peace in the Nine Realms but he leaves quickly. He wants to ask Heimdall how Jane Foster is doing. The next day Odin tells Thor that he should not hold on to Jane too much since she will die long before Thor.
Return of the Dark ElvesEdit
With Thor returning to see Jane Foster, Jane notices a circle of rain around her and then Thor gets beamed down. Jane slaps him in the face to check if he was real then one more time for taking two years to visit her even though he was on Earth during the battle of New York. He then grabs her and they get beamed up to Asgard.
As Malekith invades Asgard, Thor sees his mother, Frigga, fall down bleeding on the ground from being stabbed so he burns half of Malekith's face with a lightning bolt and throws his hammer, Mjølnir, into Algrim and Malekith, sending them back to their ship.
Escape from AsgardEdit
- "You must be truly desperate to come to me for help. What makes you think you can trust me?"
"I don't. Mother did. You should know when we fought each other in the past, I did so with a glimmer of hope that my brother was still in there, somewhere. That hope no longer exists to protect you. You betray me, and I will kill you."
"When do we start?"
- ―Loki and Thor
A funeral is later held for the dead Asgardians and Frigga. Thor knows that Malekith will return for Jane Foster, but blinded by hate and grief Odin won't let Thor move her. So Thor comes up with a plan to move her even if he would then commit treason and in the worst case get them killed. He asks if Heimdall could keep quiet. And since Loki managed to get three Frost Giants into Asgard, Thor hopes that he could take them to Svartalfheim. Thor, Jane and Loki then jump on to the Dark Elf Harrow.
While Sif and Volstagg delay the guards Thor flies out beside the Bifrost Bridge, pushes out Loki and jumps out with a sick Jane in his arms. They all land on a smaller Asgardian Skiff that Fandral has been driving. They get hunted by an Asgardian patrol but Fandrall swings over to their ship and knock out the soldiers. Loki then drives through the secret pass way that takes them to Svartalfheim.
The trio lands in the wastelands of Svartalfheim and Jane Foster regains her strength. Thor starts to talk about wanting to trust Loki. Then Loki says he can't and uses his dagger to cut Thor's hand off. Malekith has been there waiting for them and Loki tells him that all he wants in return for Jane, is a good spot where he can see Asgard burn. Algrim remembers seeing Loki in a prison cell so he tells Malekith Loki is an enemy of Asgard.
Malekith then starts to draw the Aether out of Jane but when still absorbing it Thor shouts Loki's name and it turns out that Loki only created an illusion of cutting of Thor's arm and Thor calls for Mjølnir. He then shoots a lightning bolt on the Aether causing it to explode. Loki jumps on top of Jane to prevent the Aether explosion to hit her. Although, Malekith has already absorbed enough power and he leaves telling Algrim to take care of the rest.
Algrim throws an Black Hole Grenade in the air and Loki almost gets sucked in but Thor saves him. Algrim starts to beat up Thor but Loki then stabs him in the back with a sword. Algrim, being "the last of the Kursed", isn't injured and he grabs Loki and pushes him towards his chest. The blade sticking out of Algrim's chest then pierces Loki's solar plexus. Loki managed to press one of Algrim's implosion bombs and Algrim dies. Seemingly, does Loki in Thor's arms.
Return to EarthEdit
Thor and Jane Foster then enter a cave that seems to have all the objects that didn't come back when Ian Boothby, Darcy Lewis and the kids played at the storage house. Jane grabs Ian's car keys and as she and Thor continue in to the cave, they get transported back to the storage house in England. Later, an Einherjar Guard rises up from the same place where Loki had died with a green light around him, hinting that Loki might still be alive. The guard comes back to Asgard to tell Odin that Loki's body has been found.
When they got there the worlds were almost in line and Malekith had landed. Thor and Malekith start to fight and the fight takes them through many different worlds. The Dark Elves start to invade Greenwich but Erik Selvig's devices could teleport some of them away.
Darcy Lewis and Ian Boothby were accidentally teleported away a few blocks, together with three Dark Elf Warriors. The warriors where going to attack Lewis but Boothby saw a car not affected by gravity, so he took it up and smashed it on to the Dark Elves, saving his Lewis' life. They kissed as Foster then teleported them back.
Malekith, now back on Earth, starts to release the Aether. Thor catches up with Jane and Erik. They said neither of them could get close to Malekith, but Thor could. Thor takes Erik's devices and throws them on to Malekith's arms teleporting them to Svartalfheim. Then he threw the last one in Malekith's chest teleporting him to Svartalfheim. But now Malekith's ship starts to fall down on to their heads. Luckily Erik's devices teleports the ship away and it crashes down on top of Malekith, killing him.
Soon after, when S.H.I.E.L.D. Agent Phil Coulson and his team were investigating the discovery of a lost Asgardian artifact known as the Berserker Staff, he sought to consult with Thor, but was informed by S.H.I.E.L.D. director Nick Fury that Thor had taken himself "off the grid".
As the first born son of Odin, Thor possesses a number of superhuman attributes common among the Asgardians. However, some are considerably more developed than those of the vast majority of his race. Thor is the second most powerful Asgardian in the Nine Realms, second only to his father, Odin the AllFather. Thor is a Norse warrior god, trained and skilled in the arts of battle, and he has been doing it for thousands of years. He has usually been shown to rely solely on his superior fighting ability, strength, and well nigh invulnerability. Thor, currently, is arguably one of the most powerful being on the planet as well as one of the most powerful beings in the Marvel Cinematic Universe, second in Asgard only to his father. While on Earth, Thor greatly withholds his power unless fighting someone with similar strength and durability. It should be noted that during Thor's fight with Hulk, Thor was unable to use his full power, because it could have destroyed the Helicarrier and cause the deaths of innocent people; similarly, in his fight with Iron Man, Thor did not use his full power as he did not want to kill Stark.
- Asgardian Physiology: As an Asgardian, Thor has superhuman abilities.
- Superhuman Strength: As an Asgardian, specifically the son of Odin, Thor is the strongest Asgardian alive. His strength enables to overpower normal humans, Frost Giants, and alien group troops with ease. He can lift nearly any object with ease and can tear through most objects such as Iron Man's gauntlets like crushing paper or an modified cage created to contain the Hulk. He is much stronger than Loki and although Loki can battle him to an extent, eventually Thor will always beat him. He can also seemed to overpower an enhanced Iron Man. He can hold his own against The Hulk for a period of time with and/or without Mjølnir. Hulk seemed to overpower Thor with his raging strength but the Asgardian did not use any of his other abilities and was . His strength extends to his ability to leap great distances. He has show to be stonger than Iron Man, even with his suit at 400% capacity, and able to take Hulk's powerful blows. Thor was able to overpower a Kronan with a simple swing of his hammer. He was able to overpower hordes of Marauders with ease. Upon landing on the ground, he left an impact crater. Thor possesed enough strength to easily over power any Frost Giant he faced, sending them flying with each strike. He was able to kill a Frost Monster with a single hit, straight through its skull. Thor also went toe-to-toe with the all powerful Destroyer and won. Thor was able to knock Loki through the Bifrost monitor walls and he was also strong enough to destroy the Bifrost bridge. With Mjölnir, he was able to hold off against the Hulk for a long time. It should also be noted that during his battle with the Hulk, Thor's blows were easily capable of staggering and in some cases knocking the Hulk around, something very few being have been shown to be capable of. He was able to battle the hordes of Chitauri foot soldiers with ease and take down a Leviathan with a single hit. With one simple strike, he was able to flip a car over, killing several Chitauri soldiers.
- Superhuman Stamina: Thor's advanced musculature is considerably more efficient than that of a human and most other Asgardians. As a result, his muscles produce practically no fatigue toxins during physical activity compared to those of humans and most other members of his race. His virtually inexhaustible stamina enables him to exert himself at peak capacity for an undefined period of time without tiring at all.
- Superhuman Dense Tissue: Thor's skin, muscle, and bone tissue have several times the density of the same tissue in the body of a human being, contributing to his superhuman weight. At full power, he is invulnerable to powerful energy blasts, weighted impacts, falls from great heights, explosions and various other opposing forces. Even when he was stripped of his powers, he was still amazingly durable due to his dense body. He was hit twice by Jane Foster's truck and even though he was knocked down, he showed no visible damage after getting up. He withstood several blows from S.H.I.E.L.D. operatives and when he was eventually captured he showed no damage besides a small bruise on his forehead.
- Nigh Invulnerability: When he is at full power and armed with Mjølnir, Thor possesses nigh-invulnerability and immunity to such human ailments as diseases, toxins, poisons, corrosives, fire, electrocution, asphyxiation, lead, and radiation poisoning. He has withstood direct blow in the face from a massive Frost Giant and laughed afterward. He survived a direct near point blank range blast from Gungnir blasting him out of Odin's chamber, falling several hundred feet to the ground showing no visible signs of injury. He was struck in the face by Loki wielding Gungnir and showed only anger and annoyance as a result. He was blasted by Iron Man's repulsor rays in the chest and in the face, and was headbutted by Iron Man with no visible damage. He took several massive blows from the Hulk without signs of injury. Even though he took a severe beating from Algrim, he seemed only irritated more than hurt.
- Superhuman Speed: Thor can move at extreme speeds. Thor can fly to the across the New Mexico desert in a matter of seconds. He can also swing Mjølnir at high speeds that it seems like a blur to the naked eye. Thor tackled the Hulk through the wall of the Helicarrier in a split second to be visibly seen as a blur.
- Superhuman Agility: Thor's agility, balance, and bodily coordination make him a great warrior for battle. He moves with incredible grace and speed despite his size and body density. He was able to dodge the wing of a jet fighter thrown at him by the Hulk while they battled in the hangar bay.
- Regenerative Healing Factor: Despite his astounding resistance to injury, it is possible to injure Thor. However, due to his Asgardian physiology, Thor is able to heal at a rate much faster than an normal human being. After seemingly being killed by the Destroyer and proving himself worthy of Mjølnir once again, Thor regained his full power and immediately healed himself in seconds. Seconds after being stabbed in the stomach by Loki using Gungnir on the Bifrost bridge, Thor called forth a thunderbolt with Mjølnir knocking down Loki and stands up completely healed. Thor was stabbed by Loki with a small dagger in the Battle of New York and was injured for a moment when minutes later he was completely healed. After the beating he suffer from Algrim, upon arriving to Earth, he was fully healed.
- Superhuman Longevity: Thor, like all other Asgardians, are not truly immortal as it is possible to kill an Asgardian and other beings in the Nine Realms. It is more accurate to say that Asgardians are extremely long lived beings. Thor ages at a pace far, far slower than a human being as he is at least 1,000 or more years old; more than likely born shortly before the last great war between the Asgardians and the Jotuns.
- Master Combatant: Thor is the greatest and most powerful warrior in Asgard since Odin and is one of the most skilled fighters to ever walk the planet. Thor is a superbly skilled warrior trained in the arts of war and various fighting techniques by his teachers in Asgard. He is a master marksman, and is proficient, even masterful in all areas of combat, including hand-to-hand and various forms of weaponry available in Asgard, including spears and swords with over centuries of combat experience. He is known to be very cunning and intuitive in battles and wars, having fought and defeated over a hundred warriors in Nornheim and battle hordes of Frost Giants with great ease in Jotunheim. He was able to fight and gain the advantage with nearly a dozen S.H.I.E.L.D. operatives, while powerless and mortal, with only his vast fighting skills, as Coulson stated "he made his men, some of the most highly trained professionals in the world look like a bunch of minimum wage mall cops." He was able to maneuver around the larger Hulk and strike him with ease.
- Master Hammer Fighter: After centuries of practice wielding his hammer, Thor is a master of fighting with Mjølnir and is proficient in hammer throwing. He can even block several energy shots with Mjølnir, from the Destroyer, Loki's staff and Chitauri weaponry.
- Master Tactician: For over thousands of years, he has lead Asgard, Sif and the Warriors Three into battle against forces with great leadership and employing strategies and tactics from possibly every culture on Earth as well as the rest of the Nine Realms, including forgotten ones.
Thor has been entrusted with the mighty hammer Mjølnir, that was forged from the heart of a dying star. Thor's mystical hammer Mjølnir, which resembles a mallet rather than a war hammer, has a number of elemental powers. It has been stated by Odin himself that Mjølnir's power has no equal. Mjølnir itself is extremely durable like the Earth metal Adamantium, and, combined with the various enchantments placed upon it by Odin, it is, for all intents and purposes, indestructible. It has deflected three blast from the Destroyer (which was able to disintegrate anything that it hit) and return the blast back into the Destroyer. Thor often uses the hammer as a physical weapon, with almost nothing being capable of withstanding a hammer blow or throw (with the exception of Captain America's Shield). A few examples of the abilities Thor has shown with Mjølnir are:
- Weather Control: Wielding Mjølnir grants Thor the ability to control the base elements of a storm. It can control the elements and can create giant raging electrical storms complete with thunder, lightning, hurricane-force winds, tornadoes, tidal waves, earthquakes, and torrential rains on a moment's notice. He summoned a class 5 tornado to battle the Destroyer, a lightning bolt strong enough to destroy a large piece of landscape in Jotunheim, a lightning bolt to knock down Loki on the Bifrost bridge, and control the elements. He was able to strike Iron Man with a bolt of lighting, but it is notable that all it did was charge his suit with additional power. He was able to strike Chitauri soldiers down and Leviathans. The Norse myths and legends regarded him as a Thunder God because of the hammer's influence over the weather.
- Lightning: Thor's main weapon using Mjølnir is his lightning bolt or thunderbolt. He summoned a lightning bolt strong enough to destroy a large piece of landscape in Jotunheim, a lightning bolt to knock down Loki on the Bifrost bridge, shot a lightning bolt at Iron Man that boosted his armor's power reserve up to +400%. Thor shot a massive lightning bolt at the portal of the Chitauri to prevent anymore enemy reinforcements, took down a Chitauri warship with a single thunderbolt.
- Worthiness Enchantment: After Thor disobeyed Odin and nearly caused a war between Asgard and Jotunheim, Odin banished Thor to Earth without his powers and placed an enchantment on the hammer Mjølnir. "Who so ever holds this hammer, if he be worthy, shall possess the power of Thor." This enchantment surrounding Mjølnir prevents it from being wielded by anyone save those who have been found worthy. When Thor sacrificed himself to protect Earth from The Destroyer he proved himself worthy to wield Mjølnir once again and gained full use of his powers. Only Thor and Odin are able to Mjølnir. Other than that, none of the citizens of Puente Antiguo or Loki could lift it. Not even the Hulk's incredible strength could lift Mjølnir.
- Material Transformation: By summoning lightning from the sky into Mjølnir, Thor's uniform was transformed into his battle armor.
- Mystical Link: Mjølnir obeys Thor's commands as though it were alive. Mjølnir went to Thor when it was in a crater from miles away, it came to him in seconds. Mjølnir will return to Thor whenever he throws it at an opponent. While battling the Hulk in a hanger of the Helicarrier, Thor summoned Mjølnir from another room and it came crashing through the Helicarrier to get to him.
- Flight: Thor is capable of hurling Mjølnir with great force and, by holding onto the leather thong, is capable of flying through the air at tremendous speeds. How fast is not specified, but he was able to remain aloft in the middle of a Class 5 tornado, and traverse the distance from his father's chambers to Heimdall's observatory and back again in seconds. He used Mjølnir to fly into combat against Iron Man in the woods, to fly to the top of a skyscraper and on top of a Chitauri warship.
- Immense Speed: Thor is capable of hurling Mjølnir at great speeds by holding onto the leather thong. In Jotunheim, he bashes the Frost Giants around him, then throws Mjølnir, making it hit multiple Frost Giants in it's path in moments.
- Energy Projection: With Mjølnir, Thor can project powerful mystical blasts of energy. He can even channel energies for stronger energy attacks. With Mjølnir, Odin projects a powerful mystical blast of energy using it to channel an energy blast through it, taking away all of Thor's superhuman powers and destroys what was left of Thor's armor after stripping much of it off of him and throwing him into the Bifrost. A
- First Set: His first set of armor had a collared blue tunic with red piping, and black pants. Over the blue shirt he wore a black vest emblazoned with silver overlay. He wore a bright red cape that connected at the shoulders of his vest. His arms were covered in a form of chain-mail and he wore detailed, black, knee-high boots.
- Second Set: Thor’s second set of armor worn while fighting in the forest with Captain America and Iron Man. It was sleeveless with a black top covered in silver plates. It has blue pants and black boots. It had red wrist bands covered with silver arm bracers. It also had a bright red cape.
- Third Set: His third set was similar to his second but was all blue, with less silver plating and different arm bracers. It also had no cape, only a bit of red fabric at the shoulders
- Fourth Set: The fourth armor was the same as the second set but with the same chain-mail sleeves as seen in the first set.
- Fifth Set: The fifth set was a layered, collared, black vest with gold plates and blue accents worn over a chain-mail shirt. The vest continued into a loincloth which hung over chain-mail and leather pants. The sleeves ended at arm-bracers similar-looking to the vest with a red underside. He wore knee-high brown boots with gold piping. The fifth set also featured a bright red cape that was attached to the vest by two gold disks.
- Sixth Set: Thor’s sixth armor was very similar to his fifth set, with the only major difference being the absence of the chain-mail sleeves.
