Thor, God of Thunder

Descended from Norse gods and raised in the hallowed halls of Asgard, Thor nearly precipitated a war by violating a truce with his family's ancient enemy: the Frost Giants of Jotunheim, one of the nine worlds of the Asgardian cosmology. Odin, Thor's father, banished the young God of Thunder to Earth without his memory to teach him a lesson in humility.

After a decade as a mere mortal, the feeble Dr. Donald Blake was drawn to Norway. There, he encountered a race of warmongering aliens. Seeking cover in a cave, Blake discovered a mysterious wooden cane. Actually the enchanted hammer Mjolnir, it transformed him once more into the mighty Thor. After expelling the alien threat, the Thunder God took his place among the Avengers, Earth's Mightiest Heroes. Thor is forever torn between his divine home, Asgard, and the troubled lands of his adopted world, Earth.
