God of Thunder


Comic heroes and villains, graphic stories, fictional dimensions and the genius works of Marvel and DC, ranks way up there with the discovery of fire and the invention of the wheel. In my opinion, this popular cultural icon represents an epic milestone in the book world. Mankind hungers for characters like; Superman and Thor, they crave far-out stories to ignite the imagination and role play of fantasy. Comic characters have had some kind of impact on most children while growing up, we all wanted to fly like superman or smash things like the Hulk.

The obvious choice illuminated by supernatural aura is none other than ‘The Mighty Asgardian God of Thunder… THOR’! He first appeared in “Journey into Mystery” Vol.1 #83, 1962. He has enhanced strength, magical abilities, wields an indestructible hammer which can open interdimensional portals, he can fly, channel storms and fire energy blasts. Thor is a god, son of Oden, and quite the ladies man… his exaggerated sculpted body and confidence in his abilities, are qualities that man envies and women love. Thor is one of the core members of the Avengers and represents strength, royalty, power and humanity, things boys aspire to attain.

The character Thor and his story sparks my interest, entertains my imagination, displays effective illustration and story telling. Just like Thor, the Marvel universe is only one of the countless possible universes, identifying a number of familiar characters and worlds full of magnificent magic and imagination.

  1. Another engaging post. You establish a personal, conversational tone, provide excellent contextual information, and logical reasons for choosing Thor as your premier superhero. Well done!

  2. I agree with what you’ve said about how humans crave interesting stories to entertain them, especially superhero stories. Even though I don’t agree with what you’ve said about women loving Thor’s sculpted body, as I don”t find it particularly appealing, it is still a valid point. Your post is super interesting and I enjoyed reading it!

  3. Awesome post I especially love the introduction it really makes you think much more in depth about the comical superhero world and just how important it actually is.
