Thor (comic book style)

Definitely the major powerhouse of Classic Silver Age Marvel comics, the Mighty Thor, Norse God of Thunder is impressive. His manner, powers and prowess with his Uru hammer, Mjolnir, are legendary and have been the stuff of legend since appearing in Journey into Mystery #83, back in August of 1962.

To me,  it was always amazing and amusing that a Norse God of Thunder could have been created by Stan Lee and Jack Kirby, two "nice Jewish boys" from New York (perhaps that's because I'm just a "nice Jewish boy" from Boston, lol!)

In any event, the Mighty Thor has been the majestic heavy hitter for Marvel for decades now, traversing the Rainbow Bridge between Asgard and Midgard (Earth) in order to protect us mere mortals.

Now, if someone could just explain to me how a Norse God came to acquire a "pseudo" Old English accent (in the Silver Age comics), I'd be content.

While the good folks at Funko Inc. have made several POP figures of Thor for they are all (at least of this writing) in the style of the MOVIE, not the Classic Silver Age COMIC BOOK appearance. 

So, it's time for TheFunkustomizer to come to the rescue:

Here's the obligatory Silver Age reference pic:

And here is our Custom Funko Comic Book style  Thor:

He was definitely fun to make. Can you guess how he was made before looking at the recipe?

  • The head is from a Sinestro POP, repainted.
  • The body is from a stock movie Thor POP, repainted.
  • The hair and helmet top are made with magic sculp.
  • The wings were from a Round 2 Captain Action Thor mask.
  • The lens flare in the pic is in honor of J.J. Abrams  (lol).
Now, THAT's my THOR!!
