Thor

Profile

Thor is the muscleman of the Norse gods. He’s the guy Odin goes to when he needs an enforcer – somebody to "enforce" his commands, and we don’t mean by asking nicely. Nope, Thor uses his physical might to intimidate and threaten others – especially those pesky giants – into doing exactly what he wants. To help him, he’s got a magical hammer and special iron gloves, both made of the finest dwarvish craftsmanship. He also wears a magical belt that gives him twice his normal strength. Since Thor is already huge and massively strong, you can bet that nobody wants to mess with him.
