That sounds like it'd be a lot of fun. I've always wondered why more academics didn't try to contact Thor, what with him running around claiming to be a god for so long. You'd think psychiatrists, at least, would be interested. ;\)

It's probably as you said below—people just don't believe him.
He's a mutant, or wears a powered suit, or is a cyborg or something.

But, unlike a lot of other heroes, when a floating castle city shows up in the middle of nowhere,
people are going to come 'round to have a look see. I'm hoping to see some trophy hunters
or even some petty burglers get their *sses handed to them. You just know that we didn't
waste time learning about some of the people in the town nearby if they weren't going to
be semi-regulars (or their bodies harboring other Asgardians). I'm hoping that we get to
see more of those two cops, and the landlady, and even the previous landowner, or those
who own the land ajacent setting up booths, T-short stands, camp grounds, and so on...

The absurbity of it helps to balance this newer, more stoic Thor.
