A tome worthy of being read aloud in the halls of Asgard. Songs will be sung about the book, The Mighty Thor: An Origin Story! This richly illustrated hardcover book retells the origin of Marvel’s resident God of Thunder. The book follows the lore of the original comics, with the arrogant protector of Asgard (Thor) being shunned to Midgard (Earth) to learn humility. He eventually finds Mjolnir, his hammer, and when he is worthy he is restored and saves both Earth and Asgard from Loki and the bitter frost giants.
Kids, and their parents, will want to read this book over and over again. Younger children will enjoy the beautiful illustrations, while the older ones will like the iconic story told in a new format. But, if you are tired of reading about Thor, Asgard, the Rainbow Bridge or the age of Ragnarok, you can read other volumes in this series, featuring the origin stories of Spiderman, Iron Man, Captain America, The Hulk, the X-Men and the Avengers.
Pro-tip: Thor is a great way to teach young children about ancient myths. Combining their interest in superheroes, while exposing them to Norse mythology will encourage your child to appreciate the history of storytelling.
