This isn't Ultimate Thor. It's Alternate Thor. Barely.

The only advantage he had over Heroes Reborn Thor was he didn't look like a morris-dancing grasshopper.

Meh.

No, in the right hands, Heroes Reborn Thor could've worked: A violent, bloodthirsty barbarian warrior who just plain can't fit into the modern world? Plus the Thor/Captain America origin reversal, with Thor stuck in suspended animation, while Captain America lives out a false life to learn humility?

Of course, in the wrong hands, Heroes Reborn Thor could, and did, end up literally in love with Mjolnir.

But in terms of potential, he was had more to work with than Ultimates 3 Thor does. Lobe has thrown out everything that worked, and worked well, and given us, as you say, a barely-alternate Thor. The entirity of the "alternate" being "sleeping with a teenager".
