Brute force was the reponse to total evil!

Thor is a god of power and strength, he acts a strongman for the gods. He possesses the primary weapon of the gods, the magic hammer Mjölnir his belt of strength and his iron gloves to hold the hammer. Thor had a fierce temper when aroused. He controls the thunder and rain, and is worshiped by farmers for his benefits. Thor is always cranky because he has a bit of stone embedded in his forehead from a fight with a Frost Giant.
