Of all Marvel's major characters, Thor is one I never got whatsoever. Please explain his appeal.

Your Canadian-ness is your undoing.

Thor is a) badass and b) bitchin'

Exhibit A:

Insightful analysis, no?

In other news, is this a good comic?

I read the synopsis of the series on Amazon and it sounds pretty good. Any readers here?

Steve Marriott had Thor painted on his walls when he went a little "fame-crazy"
Good ol' Stevie.

Because later in that issue, Thor is swallowed by that serpent and then bashes his way out through his TEETH.

Also, he was briefly turned into a frog. A FROG THAT KICKED ASS.

Aren't slime molds those things that you eat in Rogue, Nethack, and Angband?
I feel that there is a fascistic element, for example, in the Rolling Stones . . .

That ain't helping. I suspect my a-Thorist position is related to my dislike fantasy as a genre. I'd rather read about Spider-man caught in the middle of a Hammerhead-Dr. Octopus feud, while some Osborn slowly begins to turn into the Green Goblin.

Chris Sims at the ISB loves it, but I've never actually read it.

That's also a great time for me, but I also like big dudes hitting other big dudes with hammers while speaking in fakey highbrow language. Especially if either Jack Kirby or Walt Simonson is drawing it.

That's something that pulls me out of the experience. For the same reason that the Silver Surfer never appealed to me. Kind of like what Harrison Ford told Lucas: "You can write this shit, George, but you can't say it."

I have a "Comic Books get a pass" filter on my fakey dialogue detectors.

Plus, Thor is the master of smack talk:

And I'm going to aim this quote from it strictly at you:
What do you have against Vikings anyway? Way to be insensitive to other cultures, dick.

Oh, and I just totally forgot. Also in that issue, at the end, he hits the Midgard serpent so hard he breaks every bone in HIS OWN body.

Thor=Badass.
