Thor has appeared as a character in various comics over the years, appearing in series from a range of publishers.
Thor (often called The Mighty Thor) is a Marvel Comics superhero, based on the thunder god of Norse mythology. The superhero was created by editor Stan Lee and penciller Jack Kirby, who co-plotted, and scripter Larry Lieber, and first appeared in Journey into Mystery #83 (Aug. 1962).
On a mission from his father, Odin, Thor acts as a superhero while maintaining the secret identity of Dr. Donald Blake, an American physician with a partially disabled leg. Blake can transform by tapping his walking stick on the ground; the cane becomes the magical hammer Mjolnir and Blake transforms into Thor.
Thor often battles his evil adoptive brother Loki, a Marvel character adapted from the Norse god of mischief, and is a member of the superhero group the Avengers. Apart from this main superhero, Marvel features a number of characters based on him.
Thor appears briefly in Neil Gaiman's Sandman series. In "Seasons Of Mists", he, Odin and Loki try (and fail) to get the key of Hell. Later in the "Kindly Ones", he helps Odin bring Loki back (after he escaped them and caused chaos).
