I am wondering when the writers are FINALLY going to give us a story-line that delves into the powers he gets from his mother.

Seriously, she's an Elder God, and Odin coupled with her specifically so that a child of their union would be born and that child would inherit greatness and powers from both of them.

Yet heretofore, we only seem to see Thor demonstrating all these years JUST the powers he inherits from his father from being Asgardian, and indeed, seems to demonstrate little aside from the powers invested in Mjolnir.

Lately, though, we're beginning to see hints of powers that could be derived from his mother, so I want to know 2 things, if you please:

1. What exact powers (not invested in Mjolnir) does he have that we can definitively state come from Odin?

2. What powers are we beginning to see that we suspect are from his mother?

3. Why does it only seem that we see powers exhibited from Mjolnir? Considering he's from Odin, raised by Odin, there should be powers from Odin on display, but as much as I can see, the writers over time have never taken the time to explain what is distinctily Odin-inherited, because everything I see seems to suggest it's Mjolnir-bequeathed powers that are always on display.


i don't know why after almost 50 years of thor, not one writer has done a story on this. there is so many more stories that can be dug up. i scratch my head all the time thinking about marvel not concentrating and giving us this side of thor. with the movie about to be release in the theaters, and all these one-shots and mini-series, why hasn't the powers-that-be at least done one series on thor's mother? i mean, this is his real mother! you would think that thor want to know more about her.

i am one of the fans that think thor should have evolved after coming back from limbo. i know the asgardians is part of thor's world, but i would have loved to see him experience the loneliness without his people and look to his mother for parental support. i would have loved to see thor getting and meeting his half-brothers and sisters (and i know there's many) on his mother's side. there is so much material here that it boggles the mind that marvel hasn't capitalize on this.

if there's any marvel editors or writers lurking here on the thor board, can you please give this a try? i would like to see thor go in a different direction instead of the status quo.

one more thing, how long does it take thor to exhibit his mother's side of powers besides the little morsels you've thrown here and there (JMS' run when thor was in africa and splitting the earth beneath him, but that's not even a good showing of thor's mother's side because he could have done that without yelling out that this was his mother's influence. he splits the ground all the time with mjolnir).

so please, give us a mini-series that dwelve into this part of thor. i would buy it in a heartbeat.
