The MCU has breathed new life into may fan-favorite characters in the Marvel comics, and some second-tier characters have become mega-stars, such as Iron Man and the Guardians of the Galaxy, among others. The same is true for Thor, son of Odin and the hero of Asgard and Earth alike.
Thor first appeared in the namesake Thor movie, followed by two more, as well as appearances in each Avengers feature. He’s done a lot of growing up over the course of these films, and he has suffered terrible losses but also gained many new friends and vital wisdom. Here are five times Thor made the right call or has remarkable wisdom, and a few times he was sorely mistaken.
10 Thor Was Right: To Give Loki Another Chance
The relationship between these foster brothers is a tricky one, and it’s an excellent example of personal chemistry done right in the MCU. Many times, Loki has betrayed and deceived his allies, including Thor, such as in The Avengers and Thor: The Dark World.
Each time Thor decided he’d give up on Loki, he changed his mind again, and in the end, his deep and stubborn trust of Loki was vindicated. At last, Loki had become a hero and a friend of Thor, and Thor swore that he would personally kill Thanos as retaliation for Loki’s death.
9 Thor Was Wrong: That Odin Is A Fool
In the first Thor movie, Odin is the wise king of Asgard, and Thor has a problem with him. Thor was reprimanded for antagonizing the Frost Giants on their homeworld, and Odin showed true leadership by intervening and making peace.
Thor was disgusted that Odin had such a pacifistic approach, and he was further riled when Odin called him a brash and impetuous boy. Thor snapped and called his father an old man and a fool, words that he would definitely regret later on.
8 Right: Regaining Mjolnir
This is also something that took place in the first Thor movie. When Thor was cast out of Asgard and landed on Earth, he was parted from Mjolnir and was currently unworthy to wield it. He learned that the hard way when he tried to lift it during a rainstorm.
Fortunately, Thor learned some humility while stranded in New Mexico with Jane Foster and the others, and he was ready to give his very life to defeat evil. This allowed him to get his hands on Mjolnir once again, and he’s been worthy of this hammer ever since.
7 Wrong: Trying To Recruit Gladiator Hulk
Early in Thor: Ragnarok, Thor was abducted and ended up on the remote world of Sakaar, and he was forced into the gladiator arena to fight for the audience’s pleasure. His first opponent was a familiar face: the Incredible Hulk himself.
Thor was overjoyed and tried to reach out to his opponent with words, but gladiator Hulk ignored him, seeking only to fight. The heat of battle is the wrong place to try and say “lay down your arms and join me” to the likes of the Hulk. Thor needed to be more patient and cunning than that.
6 Right: That Asgard Can Survive
Ragnarok is the end of the world, according to real-life Norse mythology, and this cataclysmic event came true during Thor: Ragnarok (hence the name). Thor was devastated that his home was gone, but what’s done is done, and the Asgardians had managed to escape.
Thor didn’t dare give up hope during this critical time. Instead, he and Heimdall vowed to find a new home for their people, and anywhere they settled would become the new Asgard in spirit and in name. Now that’s the kind of leader Thor needs to be.
5 Wrong: Antagonizing The Avengers
Fortunately, this was little more than a misunderstanding, and it’s as much Iron Man’s fault as it is Thor’s. At first, Thor only wanted to recapture Loki and return him to Asgard to face justice, but Iron Man and Captain America got in the way since Loki was a vital lead for them.
Thor’s vision was clouded with anger and spite, and he made little effort to understand Iron Man’s position. Instead, he gladly fought Iron Man to a standstill and even turned his hammer on Captain America. Thor eventually stood down, though, when his hammer failed to breach Captain America’s defenses.
4 Right: Seeking Out Frigga
Frigga is the wife of Odin and the mother of Thor, making her a high-ranking Asgardian. She is also a powerful warrior, but she’d rather live her life in peace if possible. Tragically, she lost her life when the Dark Elves stormed Asgard, and Thor was heartbroken.
Later, during Endgame, Thor and Rocket Raccoon ended up in the past on Asgard, when Frigga was still alive. Thor went after her and has a soothing conversation with her, and they reaffirmed their mother-son bond. This was the shot in the arm Thor needed, and it was grand of him to seek out his mother while he still had a chance.
3 Wrong: Whether The Dwarves Survived
This fellow is Eitri, the king of the dwarves and the craftsman who first created Mjolnir. In the days of old, Eitri and the dwarves were vital allies of the Asgardians, and in Infinity War, Thor sought them out so he could have Mjolnir replaced (since Hela shattered it).
Unfortunately, Thanos had already wiped out the dwarves, and only their king was left. He couldn’t easily operate the forge alone, and worse yet, the forge itself had gone cold and dark. Thor was not expecting this tragic turn of events, so he had to improvise.
2 Right: Protecting Jane Foster
Jane Foster is tough and smart, and eventually, she would become a female version of Thor, complete with Mjolnir. Until then, however, she didn’t have a Captain America shield or super strength or even a laser gun. She needed protection while carrying out her projects.
Thor became Jane’s loyal defender, and that was an excellent thing for him to do. He could have just parted ways from her after the events in New Mexico, but he stuck with her and helped guide her in Asgard, too. That’s what a real friend does.
1 Wrong: Not Aiming For The Head
When Thanos personally stepped onto the blood-soaked battlefield in Wakanda, the tides turned decidedly in his favor. He knocked aside anyone who got in his way, then seized the last Infinity Stone from Vision’s forehead.
Thor arrived at the last moment, and sank his new battleax, Stormbreaker, deep into Thanos’ chest. But that wasn’t enough to stop Thanos from performing the snap anyway. Thanos was right when he told Thor “you should’ve gone for the head.”
