Added DiffLines:
* NemesisWeapon: Thor has had a lot of villains with Nemesis weapons. The brutish Absorbing Man and Wrecker, for example, were empowered by Asgardian magic, but where Thor wields Mjolnir, they wield thuggish instruments like a ball-and-chain or a crowbar, respectively. Their weapons tap the same sort of Asgardian magic as Thor's hammer, but are much cruder, mortal instruments. Similarly, the signature weapon of Ulik the troll is a set of "pounders" -- brass knuckles, essentially - made of the same magic metal as Thor's hammer.

* NewPowersAsThePlotDemands: By today's standards, a lot of Thor's early StanLee-scribed appearances have the thunder god doing this when he comes up with everything from creating [[BlowYouAway wind storms by blowing]] to using ventriloquism.

* SmallReferencePools: This trope is part of what inspired StanLee to create this character: the Greek myths were well known in North America, but the Norse ones were much less so, thus giving Lee a fresh source of material for stories for the MarvelUniverse. In doing so, Lee and Kirby provided generations of kids their first exposure to this mythology.

* UpToEleven: The only reason Thor exists is because StanLee was stumped as to how he could top his last creation--TheHulk, who was the strongest man alive. For Stan, the answer was for his next character to not be a "man" at all!

* AdaptationDyeJob: The Thor of the Marvel universe that we know has blonde hair, but i the [[Myth/NorseMythology original myths]], Thor had [[FieryRedhead red hair]]. The Thor of the previous Ragnarok cycle had red hair, though.

Originally, Thor was supposed to be one Dr. Donald Blake, a handicapped physician; he had a injured leg and required a walking stick. While Blake was visiting Norway, an AlienInvasion drove him to hide in a cave, where he found a wooden stick; when he struck it on the ground, it transformed into Thor's magic hammer, Mjölnir, and Blake found himself changed ''into'' Thor! Using his new powers, Blake defeated the invaders and decided to become a superhero in his native New York City, keeping the secret even from his love interest, Nurse Jane Foster. It turns out, however, that Blake really ''was'' Thor, having been given amnesia and a new form by his father, Odin, the ruler of the Asgardian gods, to "teach him humility" (it was revealed years later that this was actually part of a GambitRoulette of Odin). After learning the truth of his identity, Thor decided to stay on Earth (where he even co-founded Comicbook/TheAvengers) and continued romancing Jane, much to Odin's displeasure. Thor's half-brother, SelfDemonstrating/{{Loki}}, became his ArchEnemy and created many of Thor's other foes.

** 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 SelDemonstrating/{{Loki}} (happened in ''Comicbook/{{AXIS}}'', long story... one that needs [[http://41.media.tumblr.com/d261cac39e3c5ea88cdfb673d1a6d08d/tumblr_nh4dbexsNt1smsllio1_500.jpg pictorial evidence]]).

* [[PlotRelevantAgeUp Plot Relevant Age Down]]: After Loki sacrifices himself in ''Siege'', Thor resurrects him... only to bring him back as a child.

* [[PlotRelevantAgeUp Plot Relevant Age Down]]: PlotRelevantAgeUp: First inverted then played straight ''twice'' with Loki. After Loki sacrifices himself in ''Siege'', Thor resurrects him... only to bring him back as a child. And later Wiccan of the Comicbook/YoungAvengers ages him up to a young adult. Even later when Loki changes title the jerk ages up some more to adult but still younger than was at the ''Siege'' so around thirty if we go by mortal age.

** The comics also use Hel (amongst others) to refer to her domain the land of the not heroic dead which is stated many times to not being hell (actually seems to be one of the nicer afterlives if you lived at least a mediocre life and aren't an Angel). In modern times it's generally Hel for the place and Hela for the goddess ruling it.

In modern times it's generally Hel for the place and Hela for the goddess ruling it. Is she Loki's daughter? Well, that's the consensus but there are much ''weirder'' backstories in some comics for her. And all are equally true thanks to how Asgard works.
