Thor goes cartoon

I’ve just read probably the most ridiculous cartoon ever made. It is called “Thor – Protector of Midgard. It is a really ridiculous story! But it is also incredibly funny; not only because its pathetic rendering of the Norse Mythology, but also because it is a little bit thrilling that Asatro is growing in popularity among people, both in Scandinavia and in America.

The Marvel version of Thor is noble and very self-assured, sometimes to the point of arrogance. For some untold reason he speaks like a character made by Shakespeare and feels obliged to protect the mortals that occupy the Earth (that, according to the old tradition, is also his mother (maybe therefore his natural affinity for Earth)).

Apparently, this cartoon is old news as well. I’ve really been living in a closet with my eyes folded!! But it is a lot of fun so you should def. check it out! =)

    Jag tittade efter en jättebra dansk serietecknare som jag har läst förut. Hur fint tecknade som helst och roliga berättelser som är direkt hämtade från de isländska sagorna. 🙂 Kommer bara inte ihåg vad han heter 😦 vet du det?
