Discover the reason why Iron Man claims that Thor is no longer a God
It is well known that Thor is considered the God of Thunder and, therefore, one of the strongest Avengers. While Mjolnir grants him abilities such as the manipulation of electricity and time, the ability to fly, and teleportation between dimensions, Thor is pretty strong on his ownpossessing extreme strength, speed and durability.
Although Thor has been known and referred to as a God for many years, in a Marvel comic, Iron Man claims that Thor should no longer hold the title of God of Thunder. Below we will tell you all the details about it.
According to Iron Man, Thor is no longer a God
There have been major disputes among Marvel fans due to many considering Thor to not really be a God, describing him as “an alien from another celestial body with access to magical artifacts such as the powerful Mjolnir”.
The main reason for all this conflict is the way Thor is portrayed in the Marvel Cinematic Universe (MCU). Nevertheless, in the comics Thor is a total and utter God who it even has a mystical connection to human beliefwhich shapes his power and grants him a place in the universe.
In volume #3 of the comic Avengersfrom Marvel, Thor finds himself in a brutal confrontation with the vile dragon Fin Fang Foom. This evil and imposing monster hits Thor and yells “And they call you God?”.
that’s when Iron Man, wearing his golden armor, approaches and intervenes in the conversation. saying “Do they? I mean, when was the last time you met a firm believer in Old Norse mythology? It must have been a few centuries ago at least, right?”.
Although this comment from Tony Stark could be considered a bit derogatory, he is correct, since Thor has rarely had followers or believers who worship him and follow him..
During the crossover titled “Standoff”, which begins in volume #58 of the comic Thorfrom Marvel, local Slokovian peasants create a religion around Thor, begging the “God of Thunder” to protect them from his government. At that time the group was quickly eliminated and was never heard from again.
in the future of Marvel 2099 there is a small group of people who worship the God of Thunderwhich are called Thorites; however, even a century from the present, this small group is nowhere near like the ancient legions who were willing to live and die in the name of Thor.
In both cases, these religions have sprung up around Thor. in worship of his modern incarnation, and not his original role as the Norse God of Thunder.
Besides this, Thor is not known for having a legion of followers., and his heroic actions have rarely inspired people to the point of wanting to worship him as a god. The vast majority of the time, Thor is no different from the other Avengers and heroes of the Marvel Universe.
Iron Man may have put an end to the great debate among fans arguing against or in favor of considering Thor a deity by noting that, whatever is true in the past, few people would call themselves his followers today.
