"Greetings, Mortals! Tis I, Thor Odinson"

This is the first phrase you read as you open the pages of The World According to Thor by Marc Sumerak and Freddie E. Williams II

After a warm greeting and an invitation to glimpse life from the POV of a god, the adventure begins.

Part of what makes Thor himself is the great hammer Mjolnir

  • Unleashes earth-shattering blows and damage
  • absorbs and redirects all forms of energy
  • hears the call of the whosoever worthy and will return to them even from worlds away

Worthy- Those pure of heart and mind, no ego or ill will.

From his ever present hammer, you get to meet those closest to Thor.

In between each of the Realm tours you get side excursions through things like Thor's love life, his time with the Avengers, and a few of the foes he has faced.

And you can't have a glimpse into Thor's life without a good portion of it being occupied by the love/hate relationship with his brother Loki.
