Trivia / The Mighty Thor

  • Fan Nickname: Loki's reincarnated self is Kid Loki, or less often Little Loki. Loki as a woman is Lady Loki (with the official Marvel description of that period on their site being Loki looks like a Lady.
    • Unfortunately, and crudely, some circles of fans have also taken to nicknaming the New Thor 'Whor'.
    • With the big reveal that Fem!Thor is Jane Foster she has gained the more generous nicknames of Jane Fos-Thor and The Mighty Jane .
    • Beta Ray Bill has been dubbed both 'Beta Ray Bro' and 'Thorse.'
  • Name's the Same: Thor villain Malekith the Accursed shares the same name (minus the "the Accursed" epiphet) as a character from the tabletop game "Warhammer Fantasy", who is also a villainous Dark Elf king (before the latter setting got a Continuity Reboot in "Age of Sigmar"). This opened up contentious questions of who came up with it first, and let's leave it at that.
  • Urban Legend of Zelda: Fans vividly remember an issue where Thor is badly injured after a battle and a random paramedic hands him Mjölnir, being deemed one of the few people worthy enough to wield it. However, no one's been able to track down the specific issue where this happens. It's believed that fans were misinterpreting a scene from Thor #35 where the Enchantress helps Thor lift Mjölnir while he's unconscious.
  • What Could Have Been: Jack Kirby originally envisioned his New Gods as part of Thor's mythos, but jumped ship to DC before these plans materialized. Darkseid could have been a Thor villain.
    • Well, not quite. Kirby wanted to Kill 'em All in Ragnarok, then start over with the New Gods as a new Marvel title. (Nobody having done anything quite that ambitious in American comics yet.)
