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.
Half my Euro ancestry is Norwegian, so I think I get a pass on being bored by Thor.

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.
Doesn't that treat the medium with a certain low regard? Yeah, there are certain tropes that we accept with comics, but it doesn't have to be that cornball.

No, it means when there's a fucking dude with an enchanted hammer pounding his enemies into the ground with a mighty "THRAAAAAKKKKAAAAAAAAAAAADOOOOOOOOOOOOM!", my focus is not on the hokeyness of dialogue.

He gets a pass on all things Norwegian, and a partial pass on all things Scandinavian. Just like you get a pass on all things related to getting your ass handed to you by Lincoln.

Oh, he gets a pass on Norwegian culture, but no one, not even King Haakon V, gets a pass on not digging Thor.

GP is, as usual, correct about comics.

Leave it to the Canuck to question why something as flagrantly awesome as Thor is...awesome.

Aren't slime molds those things that you eat in Rogue, Nethack, and Angband?
If I can't talk about Physarum polycephalum in a nerd thread, where can I talk about it?
