"Protosevich focuses his story on Asgard and Midgard... When Loki's scheming leads to Thor being banished from Asgard, he must forget his vanity, find Mjolnir, and make his way home."

Clearly, he's banished to Earth without Mjolnir, in the first movie... but AS THOR.

So Spider-Man's was given organic webbing by the spider-bite, Xavier was crippled by Magneto rather than an obscure alien supervillain, Dr Doom was hit by cosmic rays and Bruce Banner was hit with nanobots as a kid in the comics?

Movie adaptations don't use the comics continuity. They take aspects of the comics - good and bad - and mix in their own stuff. Same deal, indeed, as Ultimate.

So nothing like the comics then.

A completely logical decision made to maintain verisimilitude...just like not putting Wolverine in yellow spandex.

> Xavier was crippled by Magneto rather than an obscure alien supervillain,

I have seen the X-Men films so many times but never heard it mentioned that Magneto cripples him. Also why the hell would you mention an obscure alien superbeing that was superfluous to the plot?

However, its worth pointing out that Xavier WAS still in a wheelchair, its not like he was dancing about, which is basically the size of the change you are supporting with Thor.

> Dr Doom was hit by cosmic rays and Bruce Banner was hit with nanobots as a kid in the comics?

...and we all know how well those movies turned out. *rhe*

> Movie adaptations don't use the comics continuity. They take aspects of the comics - good and bad - and mix in their own stuff. Same deal, indeed, as Ultimate.

The closer to the original source material the better the movie. Obviously you have to temper that with verisimilitude, but you don't completely rewrite history.
