Cross the rainbow bridge of Asgard! Where the booming heavens roar! You'll behold in endless wonder! The God of thunder! MIGHTY THOR!
By Odin's beard!
~ Thor's usual exclamation.
For Asgard! Nay-- FOR MIDGARD!
~ Thor's battlecry.
Thor Odinson (a.k.a. "The Mighty Thor") is the Asgardian prince of Asgard and the Norse God of thunder. He is the son of Odin and Gaea, as well as the brother of Loki, Baldr, and many more siblings. He is also the lover of the mortal known as Jane Foster and the friend of Lady Sif, Hogun, Fandril, and Volstagg.
God-like Strength: Due to being half Asgardian-half Elder God, Thor possesses incredible, phenomenal strength that far surpasses that of his fellow Asgardians, being strong enough to fight the Hulk one on one, hurl a Frost Giant by his weapon and pull the planet sized midgard serpent away from Earth. Thor has proven capable of several acts of vast physical strength, including stalemating the Hulk in a battle for an hour. He was able to break Silver Surfer's force field with a single blow, knocked out Namor with a single blow (despite Namor being fully hydrated during a rain storm), and has defeated the Bi-Beast, Red Hulk, and Gladiator. He has also stalemated Hercules in various contests of strength, and nearly rendered the Juggernaut unconscious after negating his mystical defenses. Thor's strength is so great that he was able to launch Harald Jaekelsson's body into orbit with a single uppercut and sent the Hulk-like Bodolf the Black right through the entire Earth with a single punch.
God-like Stamina: Thor's strength also has endowed him with stamina that can last days, weeks, months and even years without resting.
Invulnerability: Also attributed to his mixed bloodlines, Thor has shown tremendous invulernability, being able to withstand blows from Hercules, battle an army of Frost Giants for months without rest, and travel in space without a space suit.
Atmokinesis: As the God of Thunder/Storms, Thor has total control of the weather. He's used his power to accomplish feats such as bringing a week long rainstorm to a drought ridden field, or summon a hurricane to scare off an invading Communist army.
Limited Terrakinesis: Being the son of Gaea, Thor has some earth manipulating powers.
God-like Speed: Despite his massive frame, Thor possesses the speed of light while on the planet Earth, however is known to fly at the speed of sound when living in his home of Asgard.
God-like Reflexes: Thor's godlike speed has also allowed him to possess godlike reflexes that allow him to catch objects and other materials before they even hit him.
God-like Senses: Thor possesses senses that are godlike in nature. His sight, smell, hearing and feeling senses are known to have the ability to reach distances beyond measure.
God-like Healing: Though he is invulnerable, Thor can be injured, but like all Asgardians, he has an regenerative healing process, though it's not as fast as Wolverine or the Hulk's. His healing factor also makes him resilient to virtually all poisons and ailments.
Extended Longevity: Although not immortal as others are meant to believe, Thor is known to be an extraordinarily slow aging being. Like all the other Asgardians, Thor can live for centuries in his physical prime rather than aging in an average lifespan.
Hurricane Breath: Thor can create gale force winds with his breath.
Superhuman Ventriloquism: In at least one Silver Age story, Thor showed the power to perform "super ventriloquism".
Mjolnir Based Powers
Alongside his physical abilities, Thor is known to possess a mighty hammer named Mjolnir and his preferred weapon of choice. The weapon also has several enhancing attributes to Thors abilities as well. Mjolnir was forged out of a dying star and only is wielded by the most worthy of beings and even Thor is no exception to the rule. Mjolnir is an unbelievably powerful blunt weapon, able to smash and shatter metal buildings and mountains with ridiculous ease. The hammer is also known to be thrown and contacted possibly mentally by it's master and comes to his or her aid when it's summoned.
Flight: Upon holding the strap on the handle of Mjolnir and tossing it up while holding on, Thor is capable of actually flying at speeds ranging from the speed of sound to that of the speed of light.
Atmokinetic Channeling: Physically Thor is capable of manipulating the atmosphere, however his hammer allows him to conduct it much better than without. It channels his atmokinetic powers and allows him to conduct millions of watts of lightning and even allow him to create tornadoes with just rotating the hammer within mid-flight like a helicopter. With Mjolnir, Thor can summon even the most devastating lightning storms on a cosmic level.
Resurrection: Mjolnir is known to have the power of actually resurrecting people that have died. Thor demonstrated such a power after he wrongfully killed a man.
God Blast: Thor is capable of channeling different amounts of his godly energies in combination with the mystical properties of Mjolnir. These energies can be channeled through his hammer for a single massive energy beam known as the God Blast which is able to kill even immortals. His godly energy is so vast and powerful, that even when reinforced with the Belt of Strength, which should double Mjolnir's fortification and durability, when Thor channeled his godly energies into Mjolnir to destroy the Brain Dome of the mighty Celestial Exitar, the hammer shattered from the amount of power Thor channeled. The God Blast is so immensely powerful and destructive that it has proven capable of causing such a great degree of damage to a starving Galactus that he was forced to flee for his life. Thor can send the God Blast to the core of Ego the Living Planet and Alter Ego and render both comatose.
Energy Absorption and Redirection: Thor is able to use Mjolnir to absorb energy blasts directed towards him as means of attack. Once the energy is absorbed, Thor can redirect it back amplified towards the source. Thor used Mjolnir to absorb the Silver Surfer's Cosmic blasts, Sky-Walker's Cosmic Tempest, radio active energy, and magnetism such as Magneto's personal magnetic field. Mjolnir's even managed to redirect the energy of the Null Bomb, which was created to destroy all life in the Black Galaxy, the blast of which was shown as powerful enough to reignite a dying sun. It has also absorbed mystical energies, such as Pluto's mystic flame. The hammer was even able to absorb a portion of the mystical energies granted from every god pantheon on Earth.
Teleportation: By grasping Mjolnir by the leather thong and rapidly swirling it, Thor can channel energies for the purpose of opening gateways through means of a vortex and in this vortex time has no meaning, which means he and others can pass through it to their destinations instantaneously. He can open gateways which allow him to travel across locations no matter how great the distance within moments or even across entire dimensions, as he does when he travels from Asgard to Earth and vice-versa. Thor has used Mjolnir to rip the fabric of the Universe to send Surtur and Yimir to the Death Dimension and send an entire population to Limbo, Thor can also use Mjolnir to travel through portals anywhere within the same dimension.
Mystical Link: Mjolnir obeys Thor’s commands as though it were alive, and if Thor’s will is strong enough, the hammer can pass through nearly any barrier to reach him should he so chooses; Mjolnir will even carve its way through the very center of entire planets to get back to Thor. Mjolnir will even return to Thor while he is in his mortal persona as Jake Olson. Mjolnir can also transform Thor into his civilian guises. When Thor is a civilian, the hammer most often becomes an old wooden cane. While employing a mortal guise, Thor would transform back into his mortal form if he was separated from Mjolnir for more than 60 seconds.
Worthiness Enchantment: This enchantment surrounding Mjolnir prevents it from being wielded by anyone save those who have been found worthy. Thus far, this includes Thor, the Red Norvell, Beta Ray Bill, and Captain America. To anyone else, Mjolnir cannot be lifted from the ground nor wrested from Thor’s grip. Those who are deemed worthy are able to wield Thor's powers. Captain America said "I've never wielded such limitless power before!" "It's almost intoxicating!" As the true master of Mjolnir, Thor can also will unto others the ability to wield the mystical hammer, bypassing the worthiness enchantment, and also empower them with his own godly abilities. However, after Nick Fury told him an undisclosed secret, he lost his ability of wielding Mjolnir.
Thor is known to be a great warrior and because of his warrior status, he's been known to have amazing abilities that allow him to fight in battle.
Weapons Expert: Thor, being a warrior is actually known to possess immense knowledge on how to use a variety of different weapons such as hammers, mallets, swords, battle axes and spears. He is an extremely proficient and masterful fighter with his legendary hammer Mjolnir.
Hand to Hand Combat: Thor is also known to possess amazing hand to hand combat skills that he has demonstrated on a variety of occasions.
Multi-Lingual: Thor is known to have demonstrated his ability to speak all the languages of the nine realms. He understands the languages of Midgard and various other alien languages as well.
Indomitable Will: Thor has shown to have a powerful force of will, so much so that he has defied the will of his father Odin, who is his king and is bound to serve him, on several occasions if he feels the need to do so. He does not back down from any foe, does not give into a fight and is willing to lay down his own life in defense of others. On occasion, he has demonstrated the will power necessary to overcome mental domination.
I leave you with this thought...It is not the one with the greatest power which is important!! It is the one who uses the power wisely...in the cause of justice!
~ Thor Odinson
If this is are fate, so be it. But if I am to die, let be with lightning and thunder... and the power of Thorr.
~ Thor Odinson
Perhaps you're right. Perhaps this is a mistake. But if it's not...if my one life can prevent the untold deaths that will result from their war -- then I have to do it.
~ Thor Odinson
Ultron. We would have words with thee.
~ Thor Odinson
Stay thy hand! 'Tis the God of Thunder who doth command thee!
~ Thor Odinson
Your labors would be for naught, mortal! All these long centuries, men have told of Asgard--stories have been written--songs have been sung--and still mankind calls it--legend!
