Origin

A Norse god, the young and impetuous Thor nearly started a war by violating a truce with his race's ancient enemies - the Frost Giants. Odin, his father and king of the Norse gods, banished the young prince to Earth without his memory, in order to teach him humility as a mere mortal.


After a decade as the earthly doctor Donald Blake, the ancient god was compelled to visit Norway where he encountering a race of warmongering stone-like aliens known as Kronan.


Unaware of his true nature Dr. Blake hid in a cave where he found a mysterious wooden cane. The cane was actually the enchanted war-hammer Mjolnir, which when struck on the ground shed its mystical disguise and transformed Blake into the godly form of the mighty Thor.
