Thor—God of Thunder

Important edit: over at Savage MCU I've rebuilt Thor from the ground up. His higher XP more accounts for his absurd age and battlefield experience, and his powers themselves have gotten a substantial boost to fall in line with other Asgardians as a baseline and far surpass them when necessary. The definitive Thor profile will be hosted there and I'll leave this post up for the folks that want to see this older iteration.

Note: Mjolnir is considered a –1 Device because it can be summoned by Thor with a successful Spirit roll from any distance, thought it might take some time depending on the circumstances. 

Thor is a Cosmic level hero with Super Karma, coming in as a true god among men. He has a heightened physiology that, combined with his armor, provides him with a level of nigh-invincibility, with a regeneration factor and powerful skin, but more importantly, Thor has access to Mjolnir, the most powerful weapon in the nine realms. It allows him to fly at extreme speeds, deflect energy blasts, and control the weather. It also hits like a large truck.

Thor is the son of Odin, the king of Asgard. As the prince of all the known worlds, he had developed an arrogance at his position that began to endanger the peace of Asgard and endanger his friends. It became such a powerful force that Odin was forced to banish Thor for a short time to force him to learn his place among his subjects (the humans). Even without his powers, Thor was one of the strongest men alive and was extremely tough.

Thor has been trained since birth in combat; while he isn't as skilled as Black Widow or Captain America, he is extremely capable. In particular, his hammer can be spun at high speeds around himself to strike anything around him. After the invasion of New York and the incident of London, Thor has appeared to take up residence on Earth with Jane Foster.

This is our final Avenger; by all accounts, we'll be getting a few more tomorrow, but for now I think I'm going to take a break from Savaging. Between the Fellowship and the Avengers, I may need to start looking for more good material and get more research done. Leave questions, comments, and Marvel love below.
