Kirby's Thor Picture

Bring on The Big Guns, M*therf*ckers!!!!!
At last I did a better known Kirby character!

This is the thirteenth of a zillion tribute pieces I have done regarding comic book characters that Jack Kirby created or co-created.

Onto this piece then...
This dude is the Mighty Thor, God of Thunder! 'nuff said!

I'm totally copy/pasting Thor's bio from wikipedia, 'cause it's so complicated that I'm gonna be here till tomorrow...
Thor (often called The Mighty Thor) is a fictional character, a superhero appearing in the Marvel Universe.
Based on the god of the same name from Norse mythology and created by editor-plotter Stan Lee, scripter Larry Lieber, and penciller Jack Kirby, he first appeared in Journey into Mystery # 83 (Aug. 1962).
The Marvel version of Thor is noble and very self-assured, sometimes to the point of arrogance. Thor's father Odin (ruler of the Norse Gods) decides his son needs to be taught humility and consequently places Thor (without memories of godhood) into the body and memories of an existing, partially disabled human medical student, Donald Blake.

After becoming a doctor and thoroughly believing himself to be the young surgeon Blake, he later discovers Thor's disguised hammer and learns to change back and forth into the Thunder God. The real Blake's persona remains elsewhere until many years later, after Odin becomes satisfied of Thor's humility and lifts the spell, thereby removing the need for a mortal alter ego. The mortal experience, however, shapes Thor into an honorable and courteous individual, who is loyal to all comrades. His membership with the Avengers also gives him a great respect for human nature at its best.

Thor, along with other Marvel Asgardians, has a distinctive, stylized manner of speech that resembles Elizabethan English. He often uses archaic words like "thou," "verily," and "nay."
There's lot's more stuff in his bio (like other dudes becoming Thor and his dying and resurrection and so forth), but if you're interested, just pickup the hotdamn comicbook (or read wikipedia's detailed bio)!!

This piece was a collab of sorts with The original backround can be seen here:
