Thor—God of Thunder

Our second Avenger to earn an entry here, Thor was one of those few that I simply couldn't represent his powers (particularly the power of Mjolnir) without amping up things a bit. This is why I added another Power Level: Deity, giving you 90 Power Points, and a total of 100.

Clocking in at well over a thousand years old, Thor Odinson is the prince of Asgard and protector of the Nine Realms. He and his brother Loki were raised together, though Thor was groomed by his father, Odin, while Loki was taught by their mother, Frigga. Gifted with the hammer Mjolnir, Thor became one of the greatest warriors of Asgard, as well as being the strongest by a wide margin.

This power, however, was accompanied by an almost legendary arrogance and brash violence. Thor's policy was always "hit first, ask questions later," which came to a head when the Jotun attempted to break into Odin's weapons vault. He left with Loki, Sif, and the Warriors Three to Jotunheim himself, nearly starting a war, and for this act he was stripped of his power and title, banished to Midgard until he could prove himself worthy to wield Mjolnir again.

Even as a human, Thor's strength was almost unparalleled, but his landing on Earth left him in unfamiliar territory. With the help of some friends, including Jane Foster, he found the crash site of Mjolnir, guarded by a S.H.I.E.L.D. outpost. Upon reaching it—mostly by smashing through about a dozen S.H.I.E.L.D. personnel—he was not found worthy and detained. Loki then briefly visited, telling him that their father had died and their mother forbade his return. He was humbled by his circumstances, and began to learn the human way of life when Sif and the Warriors Three arrived to tell him that Loki betrayed them.

They were shortly followed by the Destroyer, and after nearly sacrificing himself, Thor was found worthy and Mjolnir returned his power to him once again. He quickly made his way back to Asgard, fighting his brother and destroying the Bifrost bridge to save Jotunheim. After Loki dropped into the abyss, Thor spent the next year fighting and defending the Nine Realms until his brother somehow turned up again in Midgard, and Odin drew enormous reserves of Dark Energy to send Thor back.

Thor found his brother, and after a brief fight with Tony Stark and with the Hulk, helped the newly formed Avengers to fight off the Chitauri invaders and bring his brother back home to be imprisoned. One he arrived he went back to fighting across the Realms until Jane seemingly disappeared from Heimdall's view. He quickly returned to Earth once again to find that Jane was harboring the ancient Aether, bringing her back to Asgard for treatment.

Shortly after, the Dark Elves arrived, searching for the Aether and killing Frigga, and Thor broke Loki free to help him destroy the Aether and defeat the Dark Elf threat. After a short battle with Maliketh and Kurse, including Loki's sacrifice, Thor engaged Maliketh and defeated him in one-on-one combat, even with the power of the Aether, before convincing Odin to let him stay on Earth.

A year or two later, he was called back to help the other Avengers retrieve the scepter Loki used in New York and defeat the maniacal A.I. Ultron, but during this time received a vision of what appeared to be Ragnarok. After the threat was taken care of, Thor returned to Asgard to investigate, leaving Earth and the Avengers behind.

Thor also possesses a custom Edge to summon Mjolnir back to his hand:

Recall Device
Requirements: Novice, Arcane Background (Super Powers), Agility d8+, must have the Device modifier on the flight power
This characters Devices may be propelled to him from almost anywhere. As a free action, the character's Devices begin to fly towards him at the character's normal flying pace and are equipped as a free action once they reach him.
Devices that Require Activation or are Slow to Activate are not activated upon arrival and must still be activated as normal.

Power Stunts:
  • Explode (9): Damage 6d8, LBT. Device (–2, Mjolnir). In Thor, Thor channels his lightning and releases it in an enormous burst of power around him, destroying dozens of frost giants and sending the ground around him into the air.

Thor is really scary; I'd really rather not mess with him even with other supers.
