* 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. Furthermore, Thor was also blamed for the fact that his adviser, [[PoisonousFriend Loki]], engaged in secret executions and other atrocities to silence dissension---something that Thor wouldn't have approved of if he had known about it. Almost all of Thor's old friends (Sif, Captain America, and others) formed a rebellion to reject the paradise world and take Thor down, which basically resulted in his perfect kingdom being utterly destroyed, 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.

** If we believe Loki (which might not be a good idea), gods run on the TheoryOfNarrativeCausality and there is basically an in-universe FictionIdentityPostulate. If there are multiple versions of the same event: All are equally true. If the story say gods can do something: They can. If the story says they existed before humanity and so the in-universe storyteller: They did... Yes. It's circular. But that's Loki for you. And as long the story exists: They exist. (Also [[DeathIsCheap story death is kind of cheap anyway]].) They are literally rewritable / retellable if someone knows how (see Kid Loki forging Cul's biography in ''Comicbook/FearItself'', or what teen Loki pulled in their [[Comicbook/LokiAgentOfAsgard solo series]]).

** When [[spoiler:Jane Foster]] becomes Thor, she appears to have several abilities that Thor never exhibited. This is theorized to happen because she is even more noble than the original Thor.

** Subverted in ''Comicbook/FearItself''. While Odin is being astonishingly dickish even by Odin standards, and Thor is right to call him on it, it turns out that Odin's main motive is [[spoiler: saving Thor's life. He fails. (Temporarily, of course.)]]

* CharacterShilling: Despite being a relatively new character and not having done much, the new female Thor has already been praised by her Asgardian peers as just as good as the old Thor, maybe even better. Even ''Thor Odinson himself'' has said that she's better with Mjolnir than he is.

Even ''Thor Odinson himself'' has said that she's better with Mjolnir than he is. The latter at least is partly justified thanks to the new Thor mostly thinking outside the box where wielding the hammer goes - and some of the tricks she pulls are developed versions of ones that Thor has used in the past. Also, being [[spoiler: Jane Foster]], she's spent quite literally years watching the original work - it's safe to say she's learnt a few tricks.

** In ''Comicbook/FearItself'' Thor faces off against the Hulk and the Thing, both of whom now wield Asgardian hammers. After savagely beating down the Thing, Thor turns to the Hulk and says "...And ''him'' I liked. But you? You were always a giant ''[[SophisticatedAsHell pain in the ass]]''." Of course, he also said: "I can't beat you, you know. And I never could." Hulk's answer: "[[BadassBoast I knew]]." (Although Thor manages to hit Hulk so far that he was removed from the battlefield, but collapses unconscious afterwards.)

* 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.

* 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.'''
