Thor Modern Museum Statue

As in the previous post about the Black Spider-man Legendary Scale Bust, this time I will review about the Bowen Statue which will be released in September 2011. Actualy statue has an awesome details if you compare it with action figure. Do not tell me you do not know about Thor. Yes we all know Thor is one of the Greek mythology who was appointed as one of the Marvel Superheroes characters. Inspired by the Norse God of Thunder, Thor made his first appearance in "Journey Into Mystery" #83 in 1962. The cover boldly proclaimed him as "The most exciting superhero of all time!!" With the success of the initial short story features, the book was aptly renamed "The Mighty Thor."

Thor wields Mjolnir, a hammer forged from uru metal. Mjolnir itself is already extremely durable and, combined with the various enchantments placed upon it by Odin, is even more resistant to damage. Mjolnir also grants Thor a number of other mystical attributes. Weather Control, Energy Absorption, Flight, Teleportation, and a Worthiness Enchantment: This enchantment surrounding Mjolnir prevents it from being wielded by anyone save those who have been found worthy.

Ages ago, Odin lord of the gods of Asgard desired a child of both Asgard and Midgard (Earth), and therefore sought out and wooed Gaea, the eldest goddess of the Earth. Gaea gave birth to Thor in a small cave in Norway, and Odin took him to be raised in Asgard.

Although Thor continued to perform many acts of battle and adventure, he unfortunately grew headstrong, proud, and selfish. It pained the heart of Odin. One day, Thor chased a monster into the land of the Frost Giants, a breach of protocol that nearly sparked a war in all of Asgard. Odin had to teach Thor a lesson. He created a mortal body for him, one with a lame leg, and sent Thor, stripped of his powers and memories, to Earth. Thor arrived on the campus of New York State College of Medicine as Donald Blake. Blake proved to be the humble and patient man Odin had hoped for. He eventually graduated with top honors, gained a reputation as a caring family doctor and a brilliant surgeon, and opened a private practice in New York City.

This idyllic life was not to last. The alien Kronans were coming to invade. When taking a vacation in Norway, Blake stumbled onto the Kronan scouts’ spaceship and fled into a cave. (It was, unknown to him, the same cave in which Gaea had given birth to Thor.) In a secret chamber, Blake discovered a plain walking cane. Taking it with him, he tried to escape, only to find his way blocked. Frustrated and scared, he struck the boulder with the cane, transforming it into Mjolnir and himself into Thor. He fought the alien scouts, who retreated from Earth and called off their invasion. By tapping the ground with Mjolnir, he transformed back into Don Blake, holding a simple wooden cane.

Blake returned to New York, using his secret identity of Thor to fight crime, defend Earth, and contend with Loki, who, after learning of Thor’s return, felt all the old jealousy and hatred, plaguing Thor with many tricks and outright confrontation. One such trick led Thor and other heroes to fight the Hulk, after which the heroes bested Loki and decided to form the Avengers.
