I'm with you on this. Once in a great while you meet a man who is so hot that being in his presence is enough to make you lose command of the English language and go all googly-eyed. Even a brilliant woman like Jane would be susceptible to the godly charms of Thor, who, let's face it, is the Marvel equivalent of Superman (a gorgeous, superpowered alien who was dropped down in a small American town). Thor's quaintly chivalrous behavior and knowing use of his own good looks would be enough to do almost any woman in.

Thor and Jane obviously did not have time to fall madly in love, but they were just as obviously madly attracted to each other. The two of them spent long hours talking about Jane's research, which Thor understood, and about Asgard and the Nine Realms, which interested Jane. While the writers made a major mistake in having Thor take place over such a short period of time, the chemistry between Thor and Jane makes it easy for the audience to buy into their longing for one another.

We don’t take it for granted that people want to see themselves reflected in our heroes and our characters.
