  3. while I agree Thor will suck, he needs to freshen up on his Biblical studies.

  4. Me thinks he does not know the power of thy mighty Thor!

    Expect this human to be struck down by his own words (and lightning) verily as he doth exit thy comic merchant stall.

  5. That would have made the bible a lot more fun to read...

  7. I didn't realize that it was Thor who went to the top of Mt. Sinai to receive the Fifteen *crash* Ten... Ten Commandments.

  8. It's true, when the Romans tried to crucify Thor, son of the Allfather, they couldn't get the nails through his blessed skin, and after hours of pounding away he summoned Mjolnir and said unto them "Forsooth! Enough of this horseshit!"

    And verily, many Romans were wrecked that day.

  9. @Jake That is the greatest comment I've ever seen. I may quote you on that.

  10. Right, right. Thor was that dude that took the jews out of Egypt and crossed the Red Sea with his mighty hammer right? hahahaha

  11. This is the first time I'm compelled to post. Not because of the comic, but these comments are great. Keep them coming!

  13. Uninformed idiots bring such joy to
    the smarter ones, and the Bible would
    be much groovier if you mixed in a
    healthy dose of Norse myth.

  14. Read the D&D Monster Manuals for a primer on ancient gods. Thor, Hercules, Ares, even pagan gods from the British Isles and NOrth and South America.

  15. He must be tucked away in Revelations somewhere. I never could understand more than half of that crazy book, though he would make a bad-ass Horseman of the Apocalypse.

    Also, is it just me, or is this strip a great deal physically larger than normal.......?

  16. I would be interested to hear more of his theology.

    ReplyDelete
  17. It's in my Bible (Edas), what are you talking about.

  18. And lo, Thor did bringeth the pain with his badass hammer, and the public did see, and it was good.

  19. My favorite bible story is when Thor and Jesus teamed up to fight the new Baal and his weather machine.

  20. Is it me, or does this guy look unnervingly like Klarion the Witch Boy? Or maybe Eddie Munster...

  21. I want to read his bible. Is Beta Ray Bill in the new testament?

    ReplyDelete
  22. I love the part where Thor and Jesus team up to send the Frost Giants back to Egypt

  23. @Jake: See, this is why it's not in the modern Bible. History is written by the winners, and for centuries that was the ROMAN Catholic church.

    "So what are we going to do with all these bits where Jesus and Thor throw lightning hammers at a bunch of Legionaires and kill them all?"
    "Pfft, who wants to read crap like that? Those iron age Roman warriors could EASILY take on those pitiful weaklings!"
    "Butthurt much?"

  24. Hell, old issues of Thor WERE my Bible back in the day. Also, Fantastic Four was my scientology handbook and Amazing Spider Man my Purpose Driven Life.

    And I guess that Uncanny X-Men was my Koran because it tended to be meandering, full of holes and some of the writers had serious issues. That, and the time I beheaded that guy for insulting Professor X.

  25. PENGO! HEHEHHEAAAHERHEAHEAAAAAHHHHEEEEEE!!

  26. "Thor is lame?" Name one other superhero who ever smashed a dragon's fucking teeth out from the inside!

    Oh, and, yeah, not in the bible. I guess that's important too.

  27. The only thing I know about Thor comics is this: He once hit an opponent so hard that the force of it both killed his opponent and reduced Thor's own body to jelly.

    For this reason, I like Thor, and will watch his movie.

  28. Jesus: Son of God, sent to Earth to live among men, meant to teach people to be more noble and less proud, cast out demons, betrayed by Judas, died and came back, will be a part of Armageddon.

    Thor: Son of Odin, sent to Earth to live among men, meant to learn to be be more noble and less proud, cast out frost giants, betrayed by Loki, died and came back, will be a part of Ragnarok.

    I see his confusion.

  29. According to Marvel 1602 he's not completely wrong...

  30. If Thor had been in the Bible I might not be an atheist today.

  31. These are the best comments I've ever seen on here.

  32. Thor's style of speech is certainly vintage King James.

  33. I was thinking about this post today, what with the movie coming out and all. Yes, this young man's observation is facepalm material, but at the same time, this seems to reflect the kind of world a lot of people are pushing us to live in, i.e. - one where the Bible's prominence (whether inspirational, historical, literary or any combination thereof) is diminished. Be careful what you wish for, I guess.
