After the events of ''Original Sin'', Thor is no longer worthy of Mjolnir. A mysterious woman (later revealed to be [[spoiler:Jane Foster]]) has taken up both the hammer and the identity of [[ComicBook/{{Thor 2014}} Thor, Goddess of Thunder]], leaving the original God of Thunder as just the Odinson.

Odinson would see himself hit the absolute rock bottom, defeated, de-armed, and without his hammer he would leave to find if the universe still had a place for him. His search would lead him into a fight with The Collecter, who had found something even he could not claim, Ultimate Mojolnr, who had ripped itself from the destruction of its home universe and settled in the ruins of Old Asgard. Can Odinson claim this hammer as his own, can he become an Unworthy Thor.

** Marvel is rolling out a new incarnation of Thor, a female one, to permanently replace the original male version. They specify that she is not "She-Thor, Lady Thor, Thorita" or anything like that, just plain Thor." (though a different Thor from the one we know and love, not simply Thor turned into a woman)

** Additionally, it is later revealed that Mjolnir [[spoiler: is sentient and that sentience is making itself known, with an agenda all of its own]], something implied as far back as the end of ''ComicBook/OriginalSin'', when even Odin couldn't lift the hammer. As a result, it would make sense for the hammer to start showing off a few new tricks

** Whether or not readers ''believe'' the character shilling is another matter, as the female Thor has been a ''[[{{Understatement}} very]]'' polarizing character, leading largely to LoveItOrHateIt among the fanbase.

** At one point part of his life force became ''permanently tied'' to the hammer and, unless it's been retconned away, it still is. This is not necessarily a good thing. Because if the hammer is ever broken again ''it may well kill him.''

* DemocracyIsBad: The All-Mothers have tried to introduce a form of republic to govern the nine worlds with representatives from each realm/species forming the Congress of Worlds to decide important matters and even be needed to approve important appointments all in the hope of promoting peace. It hasn't been effective. Villains like Malekith have used its bureaucracy to further their own plans while hampering the heroes. Others like Odin have flat out ignored it continuing on with business as usual. Few races can put aside their ancient squabbles with several characters commenting that without Odin to impose any order things in the nine realms are getting worse. Made near horrifically worse when [[GodOfEvil Cul Borson]] attempted to put [[ANaziByAnyOtherName Sinthea Shmidt]] of all people on the seat of Midgard's table in the congress of worlds after electing Jane Foster be removed from her station as earths representative due to personal ailments.

** Most recently, Cul Borson, a.k.a. 'the Serpent', and the God of Fear, has become Odin's. In fairness, aside from trying to kill the new Thor and reclaim Mjolnir and generally being a dick, he hasn't actually done anything particularly evil, coming across more as a WellIntentionedExtremist (admittedly, with the emphasis on the 'extremist' part).



** Odin was portrayed early on in the series as having OmniscientMoralityLicense. In other words, even when he's being a jerk, it's For TheGreaterGood. Otherwise, he's treated as wise and benevolent. In later portrayals, he's become considerably less amicable after having his rule of Asgard challenged. He invokes such tyrannical laws and harsh punishments that he essentially becomes part of the BigBadEnsemble of ''Comicbook/Thor2014''.

* FaceHeelTurn: Odinson seems to have pulled this in ''ComicBook/SecretEmpire'', by siding with HYDRA Cap. However, ''Secret Empire'' #5 shows that his main motivations are misplaced trust in Steve, trust reinforced by Steve having (somehow) proved Worthy to wield Mjolnir when he still is not, and a desire to free the dying [[spoiler: Jane Foster]] from some unknown yet horrible purgatory, which HYDRA has promised to help him do. Even so, by that point, he is increasingly full of doubts, despite HYDRA trying to keep him away from the darker parts of their regime.

* {{Determinator}}: Thor even when his power has been halved. The earliest, and maybe coolest, was during an epic battle with [[ComicBook/TheIncredibleHercules Hercules]] back in the 60s. Odin was pissed at Thor for something and cut his power in half; despite that Thor kept battling until he was finally knocked out, but man it was awesome!
