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.

Finland must be the easiest character to include in a comic, since you only have to draw him once and copy-paste him into the other panels whereas the others look different in each panel :XD:

I like Thor and Loki (especially Loki, he's great), but I'm always so annoyed over people who seem to think that that is how they are supposed to be, and that that really is our mythology. I mean, for example: Loki was Odin's adoptive brother, not Thor's, and he loved him. Thor hated him. Most of the time at least. Also, I can't remember any myths where Loki showed any desire for ruling the world, neither Asgård or Midgård, or any other world.

Would be interesting if the Marvel Gods and the Asa Gods met someday. :)

I really, really know the feeling you demonstrated in the comic above.

Shouldn't America's and Norway's hammers be reversed? Thor from Marvel can't have a very big hammer, whereas mythological Thor needs a normal sized hammer.

Ha! Iceland makes the perfect Balder XD. Wrapped up in his own appearance, caring about little else. And Denmarks shenanigans certainly qualify him to be Loki! XD. Dunno much about Balders personality, but a guy who got his arm nommed by a crazy wolf would probably be pretty sullen. Dunno what qualifies Norway to be Thor and Sweden to be Odin though.
