In my years of linkblogging, I’ve seen roughly 537 profiles of Art Spiegelman, 264 of Marjane Satrapi, and 191 of Chris Ware. But I’m pretty sure this is the first time I’ve seen a profile of the Mighty Thor:
Alongside having thunder and lighting at his disposal, Thor used a Norse mythology inspired ‘mjolnir’ – a mystical hammer – to fend off mortal foes such as the Wrecking Crew and the Grey Gargoyle. He was also able to deploy his ‘Belt of Strength’ to great effect. However, away from his tools, Thor possessed the kind of superhuman strength, stamina and reflexes that put him up there with other Marvel heroes like Hulk and Gladiator.
Despite hailing from Askard – kingdom of the Gods – Thor was not immortal as many believed. To maintain his existence he needs to take a bite from the Golden Apples of Idun every now and then. They certainly sound more appealing than your usual Granny Smiths.
I think what most creator profiles are missing are mentions of their arch-nemeses and their secret weaknesses.
