20 Badass Comic Book Heroes that are Cool on Purpose - #13

Thor badass comic book hero

Thor - born Thor

Thor is a god.  Awesome.  He is the son of Odin, ruler of Asgard.  Thor's well known for his ridiculous hammer Mjolnir.  He's the only one who can lift it (except for Hulk and he even struggled) because of enchantments cast on it by its creator.  He stands 6'6", 640lbs (his skin and muscle tissue is extremely dense).  However, in an effort to teach Thor humility, Odin sent him into the body of a handicapped medical student on Earth (down grade).
He eventually learned to switch between his alter ego and Thor, and then (once he'd proven himself) Odin restored him fully.  Even though Thor is absurdly strong already, he can actually go into a state called "Warrior's Madness" which magnifies he's strength multiple times.  He ages much slower than humans.  He doesn't need oxygen.  He can fight for months at a time without tiring.  He can see things planets away.  He can bend thunder and lightning to his will.  I mean, it's ridiculous.  One time he almost lifted the 'World Serpent' which is said to encircle the earth.  And he's a god!

If you missed the rest of the list, find it in its entirety here.

See ya Space Cowboys...
