About 30 minutes ago I realized something: Thor is one of the most popular Marvel characters, and I've never really understood why. People of Comicvine, what is the appeal of Mighty Thor so that I may join the club?

He hits people with a magic hammer, really hard.

Long, luxurious, blonde hair.

Lightning.

He's soooooo dreamy.

He's rich.

Thursday is named for him.

Cause he's awesome. His dialogue is awesome it's so different from what you'll find in other comics and the epic feel of his comics. he's a warrior and a bad@$$ and his comics are more like an epic space odyssey. but i'm a huge fan some of his comics really give me chills.

@sog7dc: Marvel Now: Thor God of Thunder is amazing you need to read it. Other than that the Ragnorok and King Thor story lines are really good.

@sog7dc:

Read the Ragnarok arc, read his return in his own series, I cannot remember the name of the arc with the designate and Thanos but someone posted a scan from it already it was amazing, and the God Butcher and Godbomb arcs are awesome and from this year. everything from the mighty Thor series was good too and it's a short series. and read the Thor focused issues from chaos wars.

I enjoyed reading the reigning but it's different from most Thor and his characterization is off.

I like Thor because he likes to get hammered.

@thorson: Really? I disagree. Here you claim that if anyone prefers MoS over Thor 2 is a Batman fanboy.

"i did, after a long wait and i'm sort of disappointed. I thought it would be ranked higher than THOR 2, but nah. that's my opinion, if you don't like it then you are a batman fanboy.

Here you call all Batman fanboys 'hard-headed' and that 'they think they know everything.'

"You have a darkseid pic. However I wouldn't be surprised if your a batman fanboy. So hard headed and you think you know everything. That's the typical mental functioning of a batman fan."

Extra-bonus! Here you call all Batman fans losers.

"i didn't laugh. then i might be batman which would make me a loser."

All three are perfect examples of why 12 year olds should not have access to comicvine.com. Until you get banned, though, a piece of advice from @allstarsuperman that I completely agree with.

"Please, you're not funny, your batman hate doesn't make you cool, why do this?

Hey, not even Superman can claim they named a week day after him. Tho I do firmly believe that people would like Mondays a lot more if it was Supermanday. Tho some would complain that the day was over powered.

His character, his world, and his adventures have a really big, epic, powerful feel. His mythology and supporting cast are interesting and unique, his powers are cool, his dialogue is always fun... and one of the coolest things about Thor is that he can be used to tell pretty much any kind of story. He blends sci-fi, fantasy, and superhero genres into a seamless mix that no other character really pulls off.

The thing I love most about him is his character and personality. He's honourable and ever willing to give his all in protecting the Nine Realms and its denizens. He's exceptionally kind, noble, compassionate and gentle yet a fierce dedicated warrior too. He also has a touch of cockiness and haughtiness which makes him a humorous god as well. Not to mention that thematically, Thor is the bridge between the classic mythology of the tales of heroes and villains that guide modern day comics.

@herokiller12344: The current Thor: God of Thunder run is really great and worth reading as an easy introduction to Thor. I'd also recommend JMS' run on Thor as that's what got me into the character with its humanising and sincere take on Thor and Asgard's rebirth. And the classic Lee/Kirby stuff cause that's just plain awesome.

Superman would prefer Sunday. He can rest, and absorb excess solar radiation.
