    Instead, Thor and Odin are just blonde aliens in powered suits with various high tech gadgets at their disposal.

Completely wrong. From what I've seen and read (mainly from the script), there's NOTHING about ''aliens with powered suits (???) and tech weapons''. Better get your fact straight, mate.

and, I think, overreacting to that interview a few weeks back with the producers that compared Thor's powers to Iron Man and Cap. This is just part of Marvel's push to create a cohesive universe in the minds of fans (and to make sure that everyone who saw Iron Man sees Thor).

One of the Thor writers had this to say about the project:

"Thor's powers are godly, yes...But at the end of the day, he's a man... Odin sends him to Earth because he's not perfect. He's brash, arrogant. Even over-confident...he also bleeds. He struggles. Life kicks him where it hurts the most... You want to feel Thor's rage when he rages. You want to see him fight like hell, and take as much as he dishes out -- maybe more. You want to have a visceral reaction to the guy, and what happens to him. You don't want his adventures to be clean and antiseptic. You want to see the dirt, and grime and blood. You want to feel every bone crunching moment of every fight. And when he unleashes the storm, you want to feel like you're seeing the power of a GOD at work."

-Ashley Miller, co-writer of Thor

Sounds good to me. Nothing about gadgets or powered suits.
