Thor is a "deity common to all the early Germanic peoples, a great warrior represented as a red-bearded, middle-aged man of enormous strength."

He was a benevolent god, kind to humankind. His name meant "thunder," and his hammer, called Mjollnir, represented thunder and lightning. The hammer would return to Thor like a boomerang when thrown.

In one Norse myth, Thor's hammer was stolen by a giant named Thrym. Thrym held the hammer for ransom; in exchange, he wanted to marry the goddess Freyja.

When she refused, Thor disguised himself as the goddess and stole his hammer back from the giant when it was brought out to be used in the wedding ceremony.

He then killed all the giants using the hammer. In another myth, Thor is unable to crush the head of a giant serpent using his hammer.

In ancient times, Thor was the most widely worshipped god in Europe. Through the centuries, he has been depicted in carvings, paintings, and fictional stories.

Today, he is most well known through mentions in the children's film How to Train Your Dragon (2010) and as a Marvel Comics character. The character of Thor Odinson was developed by comic book writer Stan Lee during the 1960s.

His hammer is a popular feature or merchandise; renditions of it can be found in many children's toys.

Some people, too, still practice the ancient Norse religion. Some wear a pendant of Thor's hammer as a symbol of their faith.

Did you know? The word "Thursday" literally means "Thor's day." It was originally named for the Roman god Jupiter, whom Thor parallels.
