Thor Wallpaper (2011 )

Thor

The powerful but arrogant warrior Thor is cast out of the realm of Asgard and sent to live amongst humans on Earth, were he must prove himself worthy of Mjolnir and with it regain the power of  Thor. A fantastic comic hero movie. Oh and just incase you missed it J. Michael Straczynski is the first dude to discover the hammer (Mjolnir) and give it a tug.

Story by J. Michael Straczynski, Mark Protosevich.

Mjollnir
The hammer of the god Thor. It was made by the dwarfs Brokk and Eitri. The hammer was a symbol of Thor’s strength and of the thunderbolt he personified. The hammer had a massive head and a short handle and was shaped somewhat like a cross. While Eitri was shaping the hammer in the foundry, Loki, who had changed himself into a gadfly, pestered Brokk, who worked the bellows for his brother. At a crucial point in the making of the hammer, Loki stung Brokk on his eyelid; the dwarf was distracted and let go of the bellows. The fire died and Eitri did not have enough heat to finish the handle. For many centuries, Norsemen wore the hammer’s likeness as an amulet. Many of these amulets have been discovered in archaeological digs in Scandinavia and Great Britain. Many ancient gravestones and rune stones also depict Thor’s hammer.

Well that’s according to Kathleen N, Daly
