Post Your Favourite Thor Pictures
 
Here's a thread inspired by the "Post Your Favourite Green Lantern Pictures" thread over on the DC boards. Like with that thread, I'd imagine this could be moved over to the Thor boards when they go up, should it prove popular enough to justify it.

I'll start the ball rolling with arguably my favourite Thor picture, drawn by Marko Djurdjevic:

That was one beautiful cover Coipiel drew for Thor #10. And I loved that Thor/Iron Man battle (if you can call that mauling a battle), with the above image just perfectly encapsulating how screwed Iron Man is at that moment.

Gotta kick it old-school for all you Thor newbs:

Awesome transformation sketch by John Romita, Jr. and inked by Tim Townsend:

One of my favorite scenes from one of my favorite arcs by Walt Simonson:
http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v7...or/surtur3.jpg

Thor, one of the only beings to ever exert his will over the Destroyer armor rather than being consumed by mindless rage while using it:

Cover says it all: "Alone against the Celestials!"

Great cover featuring most of the major Asgardians by Steve Epting, from the last arc of Thor's previous series:

Thor with his faithful goats, Toothgnasher and Toothgrinder:

Pretty sweet classic Thor pic by Mike Deodato (and I usually don't even like Deodato's work):

I've got more. Oh, so much more have I...

I'm sure I have the issue with this scene in it, I recognise the art. I did buy the first few issues of the original "Heroes Return" Thor reboot, though at the time I was too young to really appreciate it, I think.

Re: Post Your Favourite Thor Pictures
 
Those first few issues were great. I especially liked the team-up with Namor. It lost its way a bit after the big fight with Thanos in #25, but it got back on course in the 40s after Odin died and Thor ascended to the throne.

Anyway, Thor totally fights his friends a lot and, for some reason, artists love to capture it in really tight close-ups:

This one's not a close-up, but it's still a great pic by the incomparable John Buscema:

Of course, we can't have Thor without Loki...

And let's show some love for the very creepy (yet...oddly arousing :O) female Loki:

Thor's had a variety of costumes over the years. There's the classic Kirby costume, of course, which we have plenty of pics of already, and then...

the Simonson armor:

the Godpack costume:
http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v7...rcostume-3.jpg

Deodato's ugly bare-chested costume:

Deodato's uglier S&M costume:
http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v7...eodatothor.jpg

the King Thor armor, drawn by Alan Davis here:
http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v7...r/kingthor.jpg

the updated Simonson armor by Andrea DiVito:

and, finally, the new costume, drawn by the late, great Mike Wieringo here:

And a personal favorite of mine and most other Simonson-era Thor fans, the last stand of Skurge, the Executioner:

And on that note, I'm done for today. :)

Looking at that costume gallery, I have to say that out of them all, its Thor's current costume that's my favourite.

And I really need to read that issue with Skurge's last stand. It's in the God-Size Special, but I never got round to really looking at it.

If you're planning to read earlier Thor stuff now that you're becoming a fan of the character, hold off and read it with the rest of the arc in the Simonson trades. It's a great story and Skurge's sacrifice means all the more knowing his motivations and getting a feel for who he was before.

Ultimate Thor is easily the most awesome, best drawn version in any universe, ever :D

Oh, come on, I've held my tongue about the Ultimate Thor pics tainting this otherwise awesome thread, but this? Really? Meh... different strokes, Corp. Different strokes. Just breathe...

One of my favorite parts of Jurgens' King Thor Saga in Thor's second series. Spider-Man is in awe of Thor after Thor teleports a nuclear explosion--not the nukes themselves, mind you, the actual nuclear explosion after they've detonated--away, keeping Asgard and, by extension, New York City, which it was floating over at the time, safe.
