History: Descended from Norse gods, Thor nearly
started a war by violating a truce with his family's ancient
enemy --the Frost Giants. Odin, his father, banished the
young god of thunder to Earth without his memory, to teach
Thor how to behave as a mere mortal. After a decade as
an earthly doctor, Donald Blake was drawn to Norway, and
a subsequent encounter with a race of warmongering aliens.
While hiding out in a cave, Blake found a mysterious wooden
cane that turned out to be the enchanted hammer Mjolnir
-- which transformed him back into the mighty Thor. He
drove off the alien invaders and took his place with the
Avengers. Shaking off the Blake persona, Thor was soon
forced to assume the human identity of EMS technician
Jake Olsen. Thor is forever torn between his divine home
-- the hallowed halls of Asgard -- and the troubled lands
of his adopted home, Earth.

Superhuman Powers: Thor's
principal weapon is the enchanted hammer Mjolnir, one of the
most formidable weapons known to man or god. Among the hammer's
various enchantments are its indestructibility and the ability
to summon all the elements of storm (wind, rain, thunder, and
lightning). His hammer can be thrown both as a means of flight,
and as a weapon that always returns to its wielder's hand. Thor's
superhuman strength is matched with an immunity to all human
diseases, superhuman speed, agility, and simulated flight when
he hurls his enchanted hammer Mjolnir.
