** 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



* CloneJesus: During the ''Comicbook/CivilWar'', people attempted to clone Thor since he had a not-so-convenient disappearance through that arc. [[spoiler: Issue #610 has Thor confronting his [[AxCrazy nutty]] {{doppelganger}}, Ragnarok.]]
* CombatCompliment: Thor will praise his opponent in battle, especially if they demonstrate great physical strength.

* 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.

* EverybodyHatesHades: Hela, the Norse goddess of the dead (well, the dead who didn't die in heroic battle, anyway) is given this treatment. Sometimes it is justified, as she on occasions took the role of a villain and tried to take over Valhalla, but it still doesn't justify the hatred she gets when she only tries to care for the souls under her charge.* EvilChancellor:

** 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''.

He invokes such tyrannical laws and harsh punishments that he essentially becomes part of the BigBadEnsemble of ''Comicbook/Thor2014''. Of course, with Odin, it can be quite difficult to tell when he's really being jerk, or when he's just pretending to for greater purposes.

* TheFairFolk: Dark Elves are a recurring enemy to Thor and Asgard.Asgard, with their King Malekith being first the ArcVillain of ''The Accursed'' arc of ''Thor: God of Thunder'', then becoming the fully fledged BigBad (or at least, leader of the BigBadEnsemble) of ''ComicBook/Thor2014''.


Added DiffLines:

* 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!

* DefectorFromParadise: "The Reigning" story arc presents a massive version of this trope. The story arc featured a nigh-omnipotent Thor ruling over both Earth and Asgard as All-Father. His reign was characterized as having "solved all of humanity's ills", including war, disease, hunger, etc. However, the conflict of the story revolved around the idea that the "paradise" Thor had created wasn't earned by humanity and therefore wasn't real. Eventually revealing the heavy layer of stagnation & injustice beneath the facade of a Utopian society. Which furthermore, in part left Thor to blame for the fact that his adviser, [[PoisonousFriend Loki]], engaged in secret executions and other atrocities to silence dissension, saying nothing of supplying insurgencies and promoting rebellion all for brutally quelling them to start with---something that Thor wouldn't have approved of if he had known about it. Almost all of Thor's old friends (Sif, Captain America, even Jane Foster and others) formed a rebellion to reject the paradise world and take Thor down, which basically resulted in his perfect kingdom being utterly destroyed, most everybody dying, and King Thor being forced to use all of his power to hit a ResetButton so that his younger self never came to rule.

* GreenEyedMonster: Loki, both literally and figuratively.

to:

* GreenEyedMonster: Loki, both literally Loki is Marvel's personification of this trope to the point that he has actual green eyes. His constant envy of his elder brother, Thor and figuratively.his need for love from his father warp him into a villain. Most of his mischief is about getting attention and love. His history as an abused child doesn't help. Neither did Odin's blatant favoritism towards Thor.



* GodivaHair: In ''Thor 485'', Lorelei, younger sister of The Enchantress, seduces magically [[ComicBook/FantasticFour Ben Grimm]] (like part of a plan) using a vision of her naked with just her long red hair to cover.

* AntagonistInMourning: For a while, Thor had a hero known as Thunderstrike [[AntiHeroSubstitute take his place]]. Thunderstrike eventually died and Thor was brought back. There was a scene in which the villain Absorbing Man visited his grave in order to pay his respects. Thor witnessed this and, thinking the Absorbing Man had come to defile the grave, began to fight him. The villain was offended by the thought. He angrily pointed out that he had come to mourn someone whom [[FriendlyEnemy he considered to be a friend despite all of the fights the two had been in]] and went so far as to point out that [[WhatTheHellHero Thunderstrike was more likable than Thor]]. It was probably the only instance where Thor apologized to an enemy.
