Kingdom Come Superman VS King Thor

I recently saw Marvel’s The Avengers and I am so impressed. I wish every big-budget movie could be that entertaining and just plain fun. In preparation for that movie, I watched both Iron Man films, Captain America: The First Avenger, and Thor. I haven’t seen The Incredible Hulk because a) I already know the Hulk’s origin story, b) I’m not all that interested, and c) Edward Norton was replaced by Mark Ruffalo, so I didn’t feel it necessary to see Norton’s take on the character. Ruffalo did a fantastic job, by the way.

Having grown up loving all of these comic book characters, I was already familiar with most of their backstories, with the glaring exception of Thor. How did the Norse God of Thunder come to Earth in the first place? I never really knew. Sometimes it seemed like he had an alter ego named Eric something-or-other who was kind of like Thor’s Billy Batson (for all you Shazam fans out there). Other times Thor was solo. That just left me feeling confused. So I went into the Thor film with few preconceptions about what I was going to see. What I got was a surprisingly Biblical story – or at least the Bible through the lens of Cecil B. DeMille.

Is it blasphemous to compare Norse mythology to Jewish history? Probably. But I haven’t been one to shirk a good religious controversy yet, so I’ll go ahead and dive head first into this one. Welcome to my comparison of Thor and the 1956 version of The Ten Commandments.
