Product BackstoryAges ago, Odin, lord of the gods of Asgard, desired a child of both Asgard and Midgard (Earth), and wooing the Earth goddess Gaea, fathered Thor. Growing up in Asgard, the young Thor excelled in power and popularity, and on his eighth birthday, Odin had the hammer Mjolnir created, enchanting it with powerful magic. He decreed that Mjolnir would be presented to Thor when he had been proven a worthy warrior, and Thor spent the next several years training and performing heroic deeds. Indeed, eight years later, Odin gave the hammer to Thor, declaring him to be the greatest warrior in Asgard, an honor that only served to inflate Thor's hubris.
Thor's arrogance and disregard for the law even became a threat to the Asgardian people's safety when he breached the boundaries of its lands. To teach his son humility, Odin sealed Thor's memory and sent him to Earth as Donald Blake, a partially disabled medical student. Without his godly memories, Thor developed a humble kindness as Blake, becoming a doctor and treating the ill.
After several years, Blake travels to Norway where he sees the scouts and spaceship of an impending Kronan invasion. He takes cover in a cave and happens upon Thor's disguised hammer Mjolnir. Striking Mjolnir against a rock, Blake transforms into Thor, the Thunder God and defeats the aliens. From then on, Thor would share a double life with his alter ego, Donald Blake, keeping humanity safe from evil and harm.
