Question about Thor?

Compare this scene with the modern day Thor and the Norse Myth Thor

8) A weary Odin falls into the deep "Odin sleep" to recover his strength. Loki seizes the throne in Odin's stead and offers Laufey the chance to kill Odin and retrieve the Casket. Sif and the Warriors Three, unhappy with Loki's rule, attempt to return Thor from exile, convincing Heimdall, gatekeeper of the Bifröst—the means of traveling between worlds—to allow them passage to Earth. Aware of their plan, Loki sends the Destroyer, a seemingly indestructible automaton, to pursue them and kill Thor. The warriors find Thor, but the Destroyer attacks and defeats them, prompting Thor to offer himself instead. Struck by the Destroyer and near death, Thor's sacrifice proves him worthy to wield Mjolnir. The hammer returns to him, restoring his powers and enabling him to defeat the Destroyer. Kissing Jane goodbye and vowing to return, he and his fellow Asgardians leave to confront Loki.

    Actual norse mythology is a bunch of tales of the Gods being cocky jerks and Loki is usually the butt of the joke. Like there's a whole tale of how loki ends up transforming into a horse and seducing (plus implying having sex with) another horse in order to cheat some dude out of a victory against the asgardians..... There's a couple of stories about asgardians making wagers they cannot win and then cheating to win.

    Marvel's take on Thor is way more heroic.

    You can catch listen to Neil Gaiman's tales of norse mythology on youtube to get a better idea of what i mean.

    I smell someone trying to get the internet to do their homework for them.  You won't learn anything if you get the internet to do your homework.
