* BadassBeard: Odin, many others in Asgard. Thor himself was clean-shaven for many years, before growing a beard during the Creator/WaltSimonson run (with LampshadeHanging about how this made him slightly more like the Thor of legend) to cover the damage his face sustained in a battle with the death goddess Hela. Thor also sports one in the MarvelCinematicUniverse.

Added DiffLines:

* NobleMaleRoguishMale: Thor is the noble man--fighting for honor, justice and valor, while Comicbook/TheIncredibleHercules is the rogue--fighting evil [[BloodKnight because it's fun]] and to impress women, and he's more than willing to play dirty.

** In terms of power level, Thor was created to be Marvel's main equivalent to {{Superman}}. They decided not to make him a man, [[PhysicalGod but make him a god]]. Older stories had Thor using SuperBreath and even [[NewPowersAsThePlotDemands Super Ventriloquism]], making the comparison all the more obvious. '''By the way, ''ComicBook/JLAAvengers'' has a partial answer as to who'd win in a fight between the two: there, Superman won, but in a straight-at-each-other slugfest with little combat tactics or higher-level abilities and was completely exhausted afterwards. Later issues however, hint that Thor's superior warrior training ''might'' let him win a rematch.'''

But then again, Superman would get his measure, then Thor would get ''his'', wash, rinse, repeat.

* SuperStrength: Compared to mortals, just about everyone in Thor's corner of the universe has this to some degree. Even elderly geriatric gods have been listed outright as considerably stronger than SpiderMan. Thor is strong enough to go toe-to-toe with opponents like [[ComicBook/TheIncredibleHercules Hercules]] or Juggernaut. However, a select few like Surtur, Kurse, Mangog, and a very angry Hulk, make Thor look like a weakling. He tends to compensate through greater skill or range of powers though.

** It's revealed at another point that the highest "tier" of worthiness for Mjolnir is ''need''. For example, you can qualify for every single other criteria of worthiness but not have a need for the hammer and fail to pick it up. Then, only minutes later, be able to do so because the need was greater (such as was the case with an alternate universe ComicBook/BlackWidow). And then, once the need has passed, you will fail to lift it once again.

** WaltSimonson once said that you have to be "worthy" in the Viking sense of the word. I.e. be a hardened killer. That doesn't fit with Superman or even Captain America though. Cap is a soldier, so that is maybe just enough.

* HumansAreSpecial: Thor certainly thinks so. Few other [[PhysicalGod gods]] in the Marvel Universe (and there are many) are as willing to stand up for and protect humanity as he is, and his best friends and teammates are just humans with exceptional abilities and dedication to good. His best friend amongst humans is CaptainAmerica, if that tells you anything.

** Thor's hammer (and its powers) could only be wielded by "someone worthy" such as Thunderstrike or Beta Ray Bill. Others who have briefly wielded, or at least lifted, Mjölnir include: ComicBook/CaptainAmerica, WonderWoman, [[ComicBook/XMen Rogue]] (in an alternate universe where she permanently absorbed Thor's powers and personality), Comicbook/{{Superman}} thanks to an emergency suspension of the worthiness enchantment, an [[BadassBystander unidentified paramedic]], and [[ComicBook/PowerPack Alex Power]] in "Thor and the Warriors Four" (though this is out of continuity), Franchise/ConanTheBarbarian (in a crossover comic not in continuity with either franchise), Red Norvell, and for a short time young Loki (happened in ''Comicbook/{{AXIS}}'', long story... one that needs [[http://41.media.tumblr.com/d261cac39e3c5ea88cdfb673d1a6d08d/tumblr_nh4dbexsNt1smsllio1_500.jpg pictorial evidence]]).
