Nordic Halloween


An early Halloween comic. Idea by Sbaldur.

America is dressed as the Marvel god/superhero Thor, while the rest are dressed as the version of the gods from the comic "Valhalla". Sweden is dressed as Odin.

One superhero that for sure will never be taken seriously in Scandinavia is Thor. Ever. :XD:

"Valhalla" is a re-interpretation of the old myths. For example, even though he’s a jackass, Loki doesn’t turn more and more evil. It’s just the other gods who trust him less and less because he keep causing trouble, and in the end they start blaming him for things he didn’t do.
In the story about Balder’s death he doesn’t intend for Balder to die. He just wanted to make a fool of Balder’s brother Hod by making him think he could hurt his brother with a mistletoe. So Loki was just as surprised as everybody else when it killed Balder.
Neither did he betray the gods during Ragnarok. The jotuns captured him without the gods knowing, so when the battle started they saw him on the jotuns’ side. He tried to get over to the gods, but was attacked by Heimdal.

In 1986 the comic got turned into a cartoon http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=YNX_Heix390

Hey, us Americans with a shred of literacy are just as disgusted every time Marvel Thor spouts mangled Elizabethan English.

That's like Lady Deathstrike speaking thick Hawaiian Pidgin.

Was surprised for a sec that Balder was whit here. After all he is surpossed to be a dead god. Not a death god but a dead god. But then agin the most beutiful of the gods have to be the most beutiful of the nordics i guess

@Kalastajamoraali

It is because Tyr was the only one that dared to put his hand in Fenrir's mouth.

Compared with America they look more like hobbits and Sweden looks like Gandolf from Lord of the Rings

Finland only has one arm, because in the mythology he had to let his hand rest on Fenrir's tongue. Fenrir then bit it off.
I don't remember the story that well, sorry
