Mighty Thor, The Protector :

Origin Story

When the trickster god Loki discovered that his wife Siff had been tricked into cutting off all of her golden hair, he was furious. He demanded an explanation from Thor and threatened to torture or kill him if anything bad happened in return for this abuse by a mere mortal woman.
Loki knew exactly where on earth such fine strands could be found: Svartalfheim’s workshops of course! The dwarves there were both skilled craftsmen and often enchanted their creations; perfect material for revenge against them as well- after finding out what really caused himself (and thusly also others) pain with each swipe down.

The clever man approached a group of dwarves and asked them to create an elegant headpiece out gold for Siff. But while there, through tricks & machinations he also acquired five other objects that would clear his name with the gods in order restore it back onto its proper state!

Thor’s hammer was originally meant to have a long handle. However, Loki tried sabotaging the creation process and it came out with short one instead; meaning that only those who are strong enough can wield this heavy weapon.

The god of thunder, Thor is often depicted with his powerful hammer in hand. In order for him to properly execute any strike with such force it would take more than just physical strength; he uses special gloves and belt that increase how much weight can be lifted by each arm so they never get tired while also providing protection against blows from other weapons or obstacles alike.

Mjolnir and Marvel

The way that Marvel tells the story of Thor’s hammer is different in their superhero films than it was told before. In fact, there’s no evidence at all which suggests an ancient Viking believed this boomerang-like return feature for throws and returns themselves after throwing them.

Some people say that only the worthy can lift Thor’s hammer, but there are many stories where someone with less-than godlike qualities has been able to do it. In one instance a giant king steals the weapon from its rightful owner and faces no obstacles whatsoever in commanding this power for himself; however even he eventually returns what was rightfully owed after being tricked into eatingalities by Freya (a goddess).

The deity Perun was a Slavic fertility and protective god, who often wields an axe. This Mjolnir (or “hatchet”) symbolized his power to prevent evil in Russia’s Ukrainians, Belarusians or Poles as well – just like Thor’s Hammer does for them too!

Perun, Slavic God of the Sky and Universe.
