* 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.

* 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.

* 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.

to:

* HappilyAdopted: Subverted with [[spoiler:Loki.]]Subverted. Odin adopted Loki out of obligation and guilt. Ironically he creates his own destruction by doing so.

* 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.

* UrbanLegendOfZelda: There remains a persistent claim that an unnamed paramedic once handed Thor his hammer after a battle and disappeared into the crowd before he realized the significance. However, this has never actually happened and the legend comes from someone getting confused over some of the plot contrivances in Jurgens' Thor run, which gave Thor a secret identity as an EMT named Jake Olson. Jake and Thor later ended up getting split apart, with Jake being the physical manifestation of Thor's humanity, and being worthy to lift Mjolnir because he WAS Thor.
