The son of ancient gods, Thor Odinson is a sworn protector of Earth and the divine realm of Asgard. His history is the story of many ages, from the savage days of the Vikings, down through the mists of time to the distant future of humanity. He is a giant among men, a mighty god with the soul of a mortal, and given to the cares and passions of mankind. After hundreds of years of a privileged life in Asgard, Thorís pride led his father Odin to punish him by eradicating his memories of divinity and trapping him within a mortal fame. He lived for years as a humble man, until one day a threat of alien invasion unlocked the ancient power hidden in his heart. Transfigured by the power of his mystical hammer Mjolnir, he once again took the mantle of god, and the responsibilities of a son of Asgard and protector of Earth. Since then, he has split his time between the land of his father and his adopted home, serving as a leader, protector and champion to people of both worlds. His strength is legendary, and his visage sacred to many. As one of Earthís greatest heroes, the mighty Thor is a symbol for all those who believe in justice.
