If he’d been a lesser god, Thor might have accepted that Gorr had won. And more so, that Gorr deserved to win. That gods were cruel and jealous creatures. That it was time for their age to pass. But this was no lesser god.
Thor Week, Day 1: Why do you love Thor?
Thor has such fantastic development and complexity as a character; he’s literally sunshine and rainbows but also pounds of ripped god muscle ready to take down the haters. There’s so many reasons I could list for why I love Thor. He feels love; he feels pain; he feels hope; he feels despair with such intensity, and he fights with that same intensity. Thor shows that you can be a complete badass with equal parts compassion and strength; his strength is not just physical prowess, its mental resilience and the capacity to love.
