In spite of all that you've done to our empire, He loves you. Spider-Man:
Uh... he who? Queen Veranke: God. Nick Fury:
Yeah? Well, my
god has a hammer!

Freedom is the only thing worth anything.
, from Kieron Gillen's Siege: Loki
"All the power of the storm, from all the world, flows through my veins, and can be summoned by mine hammer at any time, wherever it is. A lightning storm in Japan? Mine. A hurricane off the coast of Barbados? Mine again. A brace of tornadoes in Kansas? Aye...mine. All that might, all that destructive force, mine to command. Channeled and guided through the mystic might of this hammer, guided right at thee!"
But how better for a god to die, Surtur of Muspelheim, than facing fearful odds? And when better
to die than with a man's sons
beside him! For ASGARD! Thor: FOR MIDGARD! Loki: FOR MYSELF!

Let me give you some advice. There is an astonishing amount of powerful people in this world, and a lot of them are flat-out crazy. So...trust me...you will always
be in over your head. Always. (Thor flies past) Unless you're Thor.

Thor: I CARE NOT.

Give your orders and ultimatums to those who choose to obey, or too cowardly to fight, NOT to me. Or learn again the difference between a God of Thunder and a mortal man in a metal suit.
Need ye help, friend Daredevil? I was passing hence for but a latte most vanilla and espied this battle unfairly number'd two 'gainst once. Freyja:
But before you, please...tell me one thing. How does it feel? How does it feel to be Thor? New Thor:
How do you imagine it feels? Freyja:
I imagine it to be...unimaginable. New Thor: (smirking)
Not even close. (takes off) Freyja:
Should have picked the damn thing
up when I had the chance...
: Fury. When he whispered to me
. The whisper that left me unworthy. All he said was 'Gorr was right'. Beta Ray Bill
: Gorr? The God Butcher? Gorr the God Butcher was right? Right about what? The Odinson
: About everything. Gods are vain and vengeful creatures.
Always have been. The mortals who've worshiped us for centuries...would all be better off without us. We gods do not deserve their love. No matter how much we fight to fool ourselves. We are all unworthy.

Arthur: Thor is a Marvel superhero, right?
But Thor isn't an invented character like Wolverine
. He was a god in the Norse belief system.
How do they handle that?
Sheldon: Mostly he just wails on dudes with his hammer.
Arthur: So they pretty much sidestep all that, and make him into a street-fightin' brawler?
Sheldon: Pretty much.
Arthur: "Marvel Comics: if we can turn it into a superhero, we'll take whatever ya got layin' around."
Car parts, old couches, Norse gods...
