The World Lost Its Mightiest Heroes?" and "What If... Ultron Won?".
He is an Asgardian warrior-prince, the God of Thunder and a self-proclaimed protector of Earth. Thor subsequently became well known for his actions on Earth, which included acting as a founding member of the Avengers. He is also based on his original comic book incarnation.
He is portrayed by Chris Hemsworth (who also played George Kirk in 2009 Star Trek film, Eric the Huntsman in Snow White and the Huntsman and its sequel The Huntsman: Winter's War, Agent H in Men in Black: International, Kevin Beckman in Ghostbusters and Tyler Rake in Extraction, and voices different versions of the character in What If...?), as Dakota Goyo (who also played Max Kenton in Real Steel) portrayed the character younger.

|“||I would rather be a good man than a great king.||„|
|~ Thor to "Odin".|
Thor is a noble warrior and a man of honor. He has dislike of mortal technology and science for creating supervillains and admires heroes with courage, honor, compassion, and the gift of battle. He was very wise about mortal tales and criticizing villains about their abilities they boasted.
Originally, he was very arrogant, full of himself, and sought battle to prove his strength, heroism, and was short-sighted, acting on impulse or however he felt justified. For his actions and inexcusable behavior, Odin stripped Thor of his powers, titles, and rights, banishing him to Midgard until he proved himself worthy of his Asgardian power.
On Earth, Thor was an arrogant stranger and quickly fell into depression when his brother lied to him and how he could not lift Mjolnir. However, he fell in love with Jane Foster and quickly learnt humility and wisdom. This changed him so much that he was even willing to stand up to Loki and protect the Frost Giants, his enemies.
|“||He's not a dude. You're a dude. This is a man. A handsome, muscular man.||„|
|~ Drax the Destroyer to Star-Lord.|
Thor is a very tall Asgardian. He has blonde hair, fair skin, and blue eyes. He has very large arm muscles and long legs. He wears a silver Viking-style helmet, red cape, black armor with silver circles, red wristbands, silver chain mail sleeves, large golden belt, blue tights, and tall golden boots. In Thor: Ragnarok, his hair was cut short and his right eye was cut off by his sister Hela. However in Avengers: Infinity War, Thor got an electronic eye from Rocket as a replacement for the original eye. In Avengers: Endgame, after the 5-year time skip, Thor has gained weight and grown out his hair and beard.
Powers and Abilities
|“||Thor: I'm not as strong as you.
Odin: No. You're stronger.
|~ Thor and Odin.|
As the first born son of Odin, Thor possesses a number of superhuman attributes common among the Asgardians. However, some of his attributes are considerably more developed than those of the vast majority of his race. Thor is the third most powerful Asgardian in the Nine Realms, surpassed only by his father, Odin, and his older half-sister, Hela. Thor is a Norse warrior god, trained and skilled in the arts of battle, which he has practiced for thousands of years. He is recognized to relying solely on his superior fighting ability, strength, and nigh invulnerability. Following his banishment to Earth, Thor greatly withholds his power unless fighting someone with similar strength and durability. Due to his immense power and disciplined perspective, Thor often has to hold back during a fight due to the destruction his strength may cause to his surroundings, such as his fight on the Helicarrier with Hulk. When he does let loose with his powers, Thor is capable of decimating much of his surroundings, such as when he shattered an entire ice shelf during a battle on Jotunheim with one attack.
|“||It's like a pirate had a baby with an angel.||„|
|~ Drax the Destroyer.|
- Asgardian Physiology: As an Asgardian, Thor has several superhuman abilities far beyond the capabilities of most species in the universe.
- Superhuman Strength: As an Asgardian, specifically the son of Odin, Thor is the strongest Asgardian alive, apart from Odin and Hela. His incredible superhuman strength enables him to easily overpower normal humans, Frost Giants, Chitauri aliens, Dark Elves, Ultron Sentries, and various other species within or beyond the Nine Realms. He can lift or move immensely heavy objects effortlessly, exert millions of tonnes of force and tear through traditionally durable objects, such as Iron Man's gauntlets, like crushing paper. Thor's strength extends to his ability to leap great distances. With his strength, Thor is able to take on multiple enemies at once, using Mjølnir to destroy large groups of enemies, like the Frost Giants, the Chitauri, or Ultron Sentries one by one with each strike. Using his weapon Mjølnir, Thor's strength is compounded, as he is able to swing his mighty hammer with great speed and force. Thor's strength is so great that he can throw his hammer with enough force to break through nearly any barrier, whether it be stone, metal or dark energy. His strength is so great that strikes with Mjølnir are usually fatal, knocking out opponents with one hit, and only beings of incredible power, like Hulk and Malekith, can take multiple direct hits from Thor. Hence, Thor was able to shatter a massive Kronan, take down a Leviathan, and even break the Bifrost Bridge, all with only several blows of his hammer. Thor's immense strength also enabled him to break out of an extremely durable confinement capsule (specifically designed to hold the Hulk), stop a mighty punch from the Hulk with his own hand, and punch the latter in the face hard enough to make him stagger. Thor also went toe-to-toe in a prolonged battle against Malekith, whose strength was greatly compounded by the Aether, and ultimately defeated him. During the Battle of Sokovia, Thor was able to easily catch a falling car with one arm, saving the family trapped inside it. According to F.R.I.D.A.Y., Thor is able to crack the Vibranium spire in Novi Grad. He could instantly break out of Surtur's chains with no effort, despite one of these chains being able to restrain a massive fire dragon for an extended period of time. During his battle in Sakaar's gladiator arena, Thor is strong enough to hurt and stagger Hulk with his punches alone, as well as swing around his large hammer with no effort. Despite being no match for Hela, Thor was still strong enough to temporarily hold her own against her. After gaining his full powers, Thor's physical strength is increased even further. He was notably able to easily swing around Rocket Raccoon's Benatar escape pod at great speeds, and physically holding against the force necessary to move the gigantic rings of Nidavellir, which encircled a neutron star. Thor was able to hold open the iris of Nidavellir's star long enough for Eitri to melt ingots of metal that would become Stormbreaker, which he would later throw with enough force that it was able to slice through a beam from the completed Infinity Gauntlet and lodge deep into Thanos' chest, as well as cause him great pain upon twisting the axe deeper. Even after 5 years of poor lifestyle and weight gain, he was still strong enough to physically contend with Thanos, who needed to use both hands to overpower Thor's attempt to stop him from stabbing him with Stormbreaker.
- Superhuman Durability: Thor's skin, muscle, and bone tissue have many times the density of the same tissue in the body of a human being, making him virtually invulnerable. Even when stripped of his powers, Thor was still amazingly resilient, surviving getting hit by vehicles several times. When he is at full power and armed with Mjølnir, Thor possesses nigh-invulnerability, including resistance to powerful energy blasts, immense blunt force trauma, falls from great heights, explosions and various other opposing forces. He survived a direct near point blank range blast from Gungnir blasting him out of Odin's chamber, and falling several hundred feet to the ground, showing no visible signs of injury. Thor withstood a 400%-charged repulsor blast from Iron Man, was barely affected by Quicksilver smashing into him at extreme superhuman speeds, completely unharmed from a massive explosion of the Destroyer's energy, and even a mighty punch from Hulk only gave him a nosebleed. During his final battle with Malekith, Thor was even able to survive being hit by quite a few tendrils of the Aether Infinity Stone energy, without any permanent damage. When he is injured, Thor's physique allows him to shrug off minor injuries such as small stab wounds from Asgardian blades, or allows him to withstand a direct blow in the face from a massive Frost Giant and laugh afterwards. He was even unharmed from being pressed against the Bifrost while travelling at superluminal speeds. Thor's durability further increased when he gained his full powers, as he was able to resist attacks from Hela and remain conscious after a beating from Thanos, before having the Power Stone pressed against his head. He was even able to endure the full force of Nidavellir's reignited neutron star for several minutes in order to melt the Uru ingots needed to forge Stormbreaker, though it nearly resulted in his death. Even with a poor lifestyle spanning 5 years, his durability was still high enough to endure several hits from Thanos. However, when matched with a rare enemy that is stronger than himself, such as the Kursed Algrim, Hela or Thanos, Thor will eventually sustain injuries and increasingly show signs of exertion and fatigue.
- Superhuman Speed: Thor can move at extreme superhuman speeds. Thor tackled the Hulk through the wall of the Helicarrier in a split second, visibly appearing as a blur. Using Mjølnir, Thor can fly at high speeds, moving across the New Mexico desert in a matter of seconds. While flying Thor can use his speed to strike enemies with immense force, such as when he killed a large creature on Jotunheim by flying through its skull. He can also swing Mjølnir at such high speeds that it seems like a blur to the naked eye. Thor can also react at extreme speeds, capable of blocking Odinforce beams from the Destroyer and dodging punches from the Hulk. Thor was also still moving in Quicksilver's perception, whereas even Iron Man and Captain America appearing as frozen in comparison, and he is fast enough to react to the speedster and throw Mjølnir towards him before Pietro could reach Thor shortly afterwards. Even with immense weight gain and poor habits spanning several years, Thor was still able to keep up with Thanos and react to his sword throw.
- Superhuman Agility: Thor's agility, balance, and bodily coordination make him a great warrior for battle. He moves with incredible grace and speed despite his considerable size and body density. He was able to dodge the wing of a jet fighter thrown at him by the Hulk while they battled in the hangar bay of the Helicarrier.
- Superhuman Stamina: Thor's advanced musculature is considerably more efficient than that of a human and most other Asgardians. As a result, his muscles produce practically no fatigue toxins during physical activity compared to those of humans and most other members of his race. His virtually inexhaustible stamina enables him to exert himself at peak capacity for an undefined period of time without tiring at all. He could fight against Frost Giants and Fire Demons for extended periods of time with no visible exhaustion.
- Regenerative Healing Factor: Despite his astounding resistance to injury, it is possible to injure Thor. However, due to his Asgardian physiology, Thor is able to heal at a rate much faster than a normal human being. After seemingly being killed by the Destroyer and proving himself worthy of Mjølnir once again, Thor regained his full power and immediately healed himself in seconds. Despite receiving mild to sever stab wounds from Asgardian blades on several occasions, after working past the initial pain of the injury, Thor was able to quickly recover and continue fighting. After the brutal beating he suffered from Algrim on Svartalfheim, upon arriving to Earth, he had nearly completely recovered.
- Longevity: Thor, like all other Asgardians, is not truly immortal, as it is possible for them to be killed or die of old age. More accurately, Asgardians are extremely long lived beings. Thor ages at a pace far, far slower than a human being, claiming to be 1500 years old during his conversation with Rocket Raccoon, despite his appearance being that of a young man.
- Weather Control: As an Asgardian and son of Odin, Thor was born with the natural ability to control weather, even though his reliance on Mjølnir has caused a lack of practice. He can create powerful thunderstorms and control rain with a thought. This power is further increased upon discovering their true extent, which allowed him to contend with Hela, even though he was ultimately outmatched by her.
- Electrokinesis: As a part of his weather control powers, Thor can generate electricity from his body without relying on Mjølnir. He first used this power in his gladiator fight with the Hulk, completely overpowering him. Upon fully realizing his powers, Thor could summon "the biggest lightning blast in the history of lightning", allowing him to briefly render Hela unconscious, although she quickly recovered with no injuries. Thor could shatter the rainbow bridge with one lightning bolt and slam Thanos into the ground when channeling his lightning through Stormbreaker. Even after 5 years of unhealthy habits, Thor could still channel his lightning to charge up Iron Man enough that his repulsors could briefly push back Thanos and he needed to exert considerable effort to overpower them.
|“||You made my men, some of the most highly trained professionals in the world, look like a bunch of minimum-wage mall cops.||„|
|~ Agent Coulson to Thor.|
- Master Combatant: Thor is the greatest and most powerful warrior in Asgard since Odin, and one of the most skilled fighters in the universe. Thor is a superbly skilled warrior trained in the arts of war and various fighting techniques by his teachers in Asgard. He is proficient, even masterful in numerous areas of combat, including hand-to-hand and various forms of weaponry available in Asgard, including spears and swords with over centuries of combat experience. He is known to be very cunning and intuitive in battles and in warfare, having fought and defeated over a hundred warriors in Nornheim and battle hordes of Frost Giants with great ease in Jotunheim. He was able to fight and gain the advantage with nearly a dozen S.H.I.E.L.D. operatives, while powerless weakened and mortal, with only his vast fighting skills and experience, as Coulson stated "he made [his] men, some of the most highly trained professionals in the world, look like a bunch of minimum wage mall cops." He was able to maneuver around the larger Hulk and strike him with ease. He also went toe to toe with the highly skilled Dark Elf Malekith, and ultimately defeated him after a prolonged battle. During the Battle of Sokovia, Thor fought and destroyed many Ultron Sentries effortlessly, prompting an irritated Ultron to tackle him away and deal with him personally.
- "It's all in the swing."
- ―Thor to Vision.
- Hammer Mastery: After centuries of practice wielding his hammer, Thor is a master of fighting with Mjølnir and is proficient in hammer throwing. He can even block several energy shots with Mjølnir, from the Destroyer, Loki's staff and Chitauri weaponry. His weapon mastery is not limited to Mjølnir, as he could effectively use Hulk's hammer against him, despite it being much larger than Thor's old weapon.
- Axe Mastery: Thor is immensely skilled in fighting with an axe, able to wield his newly forged Stormbreaker with ease against several Outriders, single-handedly taking down an entire ship of Outriders and even severely injure Thanos with a single throw. He also was able to stand his ground against the 2014 Thanos using his sword, even able to disarm him and slice him when he was unarmed, along with later on cutting his armor when he was off-guard. While using Stormbreaker, Thor expertly transitions between using the hammer section and the axe portion in battle, using the former to land vicious blows channeled by his own electricity to target multiple Outriders and using the edges of the axe to mortally wound and later decapitate the Mad Titan himself.
- Master Tactician: For centuries, Thor has lead Asgard, including Sif and the Warriors Three, into battle against forces with great leadership and employing strategies and tactics adapted from various civilizations across the Nine Realms, including forgotten ones.

|~ Captain America to Thor, on the attack of the Chitauri|
Thor has been entrusted with the mighty hammer Mjølnir, that was forged from the heart of a dying star. Thor's mystical hammer Mjølnir, which resembles a mallet rather than a traditional war hammer, has a number of elemental based powers. It has been stated by Odin himself that Mjølnir's power has no equal. Mjølnir itself is extremely durable, and combined with the various enchantments placed upon it by Odin, it is, for all intents and purposes, indestructible. It has deflected three blast from the Destroyer (which was able to disintegrate anything that it hit) and return the blast back into the Destroyer. Thor often uses the hammer as a physical weapon, with almost nothing being capable of withstanding a hammer blow or throw (with the exception of Captain America's Shield). A few examples of the abilities Thor has shown with Mjølnir are:
- Weather Control: Wielding Mjølnir grants Thor the ability to control the elements of a storm. It can control the elements and can create giant raging electrical storms complete with thunder, lightning, hurricane-force winds, tornadoes, tidal waves, earthquakes, and torrential rains on a moment's notice. He summoned an isolated class 5 tornado while battling the Destroyer, as well as summoning lightning bolt strong enough to destroy a large piece of landscape in Jotunheim. The Norse myths and legends regarded him as a Thunder God because of the hammer's influence over the weather. Odin later reveals that the hammer was never the source of all of Thor's powers, but rather a tool to focus them until he realises their full potential.
- Lightning Manipulation: Thor's main weapon while using Mjølnir is the ability to summon lightning using the hammer. While it is able to generate electricity on its own, Mjølnir can also attract the ambient electricity from the surrounding atmosphere and redirect it towards a given target. While on Jotunheim, Thor summoned a lightning bolt strong enough to destroy a large piece of landscape. During the Battle of New York he used the spire of the Chrysler building to channel a massive lightning bolt, which he directed at the portal of the Chitauri to deter the enemy reinforcements, killing two Leviathans in the process. While on Svartalfheim, Thor blasted the Aether with lightning directly from Mjølnir in an attempt to destroy the fluid Infinity Stone, though it ultimately failed as the Aether quickly reformed itself following its destruction.
- Worthiness Enchantment: After Thor disobeyed Odin and nearly caused a war between Asgard and Jotunheim, Odin banished Thor to Earth without his powers and placed an enchantment on the hammer Mjølnir. "Whosoever holds this hammer, if he be worthy, shall possess the power of Thor." This enchantment surrounding Mjølnir prevents it from being wielded by anyone, save those who have been deemed worthy. When Thor sacrificed himself to protect Earth from The Destroyer he proved himself worthy to wield Mjølnir once again and gained full use of his powers. Only Thor, Odin, Vision and Captain America are able to wield Mjølnir. Other than that, none who have tried to lift it have managed to make it move. Not even the Hulk's incredible strength could lift Mjølnir.
|“||"Is this how you normally look?"
"More or less."
|~ Jane Foster and Thor.|
- Material Transformation: By summoning lightning from the sky into Mjølnir, Thor's clothes are transformed into his armor.
- Mystical Link: Mjølnir obeys Thor's commands as though it were driven by a form of intelligence. Mjølnir went to Thor when it was in a crater miles away, arriving in seconds. Mjølnir will return to Thor whenever he throws it at an opponent. While battling the Hulk in a hanger of the Helicarrier, Thor summoned Mjølnir from another room and it came crashing through the Helicarrier to get to him.
- Immense Speed: Thor is capable of hurling Mjølnir with great force and, by holding onto the leather thong, is capable of flying through the air at tremendous speeds. He was able to remain aloft in the middle of a Class 5 tornado, traverse the distance from his father's chambers to Heimdall's observatory and back again in seconds, and escape from Surtur's fire dragon at such high speeds that a mach cone was formed around Mjølnir. Mjølnir's extreme speed is not limited to flight, as Thor can also hurl it at great speeds by holding on to its leather thong. In Jotunheim, he bashes the Frost Giants around him, then throws Mjølnir, making it hit multiple Frost Giants in its path in moments.
- Energy Projection: With Mjølnir, Thor can project powerful mystical blasts of energy. He can even channel energies for stronger energy attacks. With Mjølnir, Odin projects a powerful mystical blast of energy using it to channel an energy blast through it, taking away all of Thor's superhuman powers and destroys what was left of Thor's armor after stripping much of it off of him and throwing him into the Bifrost.
- Indestructible: Mjølnir is virtually unbreakable, with almost nothing is able to shatter, dent or destroy it, with the only known exception being Hela, who crushed it with one hand. The hammer was even able to endure a hit from Thor using Stormbreaker.
|“||"A king's weapon. Meant to be the greatest on Asgard. In theory it could even summon the Bifrost."
"Did it have a name?"
|~ Eitri and Thor.|
Stormbreaker is Thor's newly forged maul, composed of an Uru head and a handle made out of Groot's arm. Due to its enchantments, it is regarded as the most powerful weapon in Asgard's history, capable of even summoning the Bifrost.
- Bifrost Summoning: After Thor gained his new devastating weapon, Stormbreaker, he was able to teleport at will, due to gaining the ability to manipulate the Bifrost. As a result, Thor instantly teleported himself, Rocket Raccoon and Groot to Wakanda, in order to aid his allies in the battle against Thanos and the Black Order.
- Weapon Summoning: Like Mjølnir before it, Thor has the ability to summon Stormbreaker to his hand, no matter the distance, as shown when Thor summoned the axe from Norway to the New Avengers Facility in North America and it reached there in seconds.
- Flight: Thor has the ability to fly at great speeds using Stormbreaker. Unlike Mjølnir, however, Thor is not required not need to swing the axe in order to fly. He easily flew through Outriders and their Dropships in order to destroy them using his lightning, and later while attacking Thanos. He uses this ability again in the Battle of Earth to attack the forces of Thanos throughout the large battlefield.
- Armor: Thor has several sets of Asgardian armor.
- First Set: His first set of armor had a collared blue tunic with red piping, and black pants. Over the blue shirt he wore a black vest emblazoned with silver overlay. He wore a bright red cape that connected at the shoulders of his vest. His arms were covered in a form of chain-mail and he wore detailed, black, knee-high boots.
- Second Set: Thor’s second set of armor worn while fighting in the forest with Captain America and Iron Man. It was sleeveless with a black top covered in silver plates. It has blue pants and black boots. It had red wrist bands covered with silver arm bracers. It also had a bright red cape. During Thor's stay on the Helicarrier he removed portions of his armor such as his cape, larger arm bracers and part of his chest plate, while in the more relaxed setting. While heading into the Battle of New York he re-donned his cape and heavier portions of his armor, adding to it a set of chain-mail sleeves as seen in the first set.
- Third Set: The Third set was a layered, collared, black vest with gold plates and blue accents worn over a chain-mail shirt. The vest continued into a loincloth which hung over chain-mail and leather pants. The sleeves ended at arm-bracers similar-looking to the vest with a red underside. He wore knee-high brown boots with gold piping. The fifth set also featured a bright red cape that was attached to the vest by two gold disks.
- Fourth Set: Thor's fourth set of armor, donned following the escape of Asgard's destruction but before Thanos' attack, was comprised of a layered, collared black vest containing his recurring silver plates, navy blue pants, and short strapped leather gloves. After attaining Stormbreaker, Thor added his signature red cape and chain-mail sleeves in preparation to the Fourth Set for his rematch with Thanos.
