Not in terms of dress obviously, but more rough and ready. Like someone fully capable of killing someone with a giant hammer. I definitely see what you guys are saying about him looking more gaunt. That's basically just how Nic Klein does faces. I totally understand not loving it, but it's not really something he applies just to Thor.

I'm not getting the idea that he's more dirty, but certainly tired. Thor's kinda going through it in this story so it makes sense they're going for haggard here. But I disagree he's not muscular. Quite the contrary. See pics That being said I'm pretty glad
They're not trying to make him look like a model who body builds. That stuff always looks kinda like a parody of what a viking god warrior would look like. I gotta tell you man, I love Nic Klein's Thor. I don't think it's denigrating at all. Quite the opposite.

P.S. for here's a pic of a famous Thor image... do you really think Klein Thor is smaller?

I don't see the purpose a making Thor more grounded, he's a god.

Nik Klein's Thor looks haggard, not what I would expect of a god with virtually unlimited vitality and constitution.
