In Norse mythology, Thor is the son of Odin and Frigga. His famed hammer, the Molinar, contains more mystical power than any other wielded by the Norse gods.

Thor’s destiny is to destroy the world serpent, an evil creature which coils itself around the Earth in the final battle at Ragnarok. At this time, he is destined to die.

Thor appears in Marvel Comics and in film, mostly as a powerful superhero. But in the original Scandinavian myths, he’s a complicated character, behind not just violence and thunder, but wellness and fertility. Wikipedia explains:

In Norse mythology, Thor (/θɔr/; from Old NorseÞórr) is a hammer-wielding god associated with thunder, lightning, storms, oak trees, strength, the protection of mankind, and also hallowing, healing and fertility
