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

What also bothers me about Marvel's Thor is that Thor was never blonde. He was red-haired, and Sif was not dark-haired. We all know that she had golden hair. Also that story about Loki being adopted (sure, he was a half-Jotunn but then again, most of the Æsir are descended from Jötunns. Even Odin), he came to Asgard on his own free will with his wife Sigyn. And he was allowed to stay because he helped so much with constructing Asgard and he became the God of Tricks.

Well, of COURSE the U.S. would get the history wrong, if they got their information from movies and TV shows.

At least... 20... or 10... percent of us here actually know better.

So THERE. Ha! *hides*

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.

@America-sama, I think it's because basically Finland is more often ignorant than angry, especially when the insult is not directed particularly towards him but also towards his fellow Nordic countries as a larger group. Indeed, sometimes he gets pissed off and when he does, he gets really angry and fierce. But most of the time in these comics he seems to me as having more a kind of "I don't care" attitude joined together with his general melancholy.

"American" Thor is actually Australian, just to make it even more confusing.
