Thor (DC)
Real Name: Thor
Search for 'Thor (DC)' on Amazon


Bio:
As with Marvel's Thor, DC's Thor could be invoked by a person bearing his hammer, which could disguise itself as a stick. Several people gained the power of Thor in 1950s DC comics.

When the Justice Society disappeared into a limbo repeating Ragnarok into perpetuity, one of their membership assumed the appearance of Thor and took his place in the final battle. Odin revealed this as a simulation he created in attempt to thwart his destiny. After having examined it countless times, and astonished at the appearance of the Justice Society in his simulation, he presented it to Dream as an offering in exchange for Hell. Thor accompanied Odin, and his true(?) form appeared as having a vastly oversized torso. He would make ribald jokes about the growing of his hammer, which here appeared so small as to be a children's toy, but would become large when put into use.

Notes:
The Thor appearing in The Sandman is the Thor of Norse legends, so any legends about him would apply to this character's biography. Outside the Sandman stories, Thor usually looks more like the likeness Kirby used in House of Mystery, who is also the Norse god. Both version have red hair, true to the myths. Kirby drew Mjolnir the same for both DC and Marvel's Thor. In the Sandman, ribald jokes were made about the hammer's ability to change size.
