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

My eye first read that last line as "why are you all dressed as Hobbits?"

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.

don't insult the Nordic gods
also the beer ghost wants beer now

tbh i get REALLY annoyed by Disney's Hercules movie, and Marvel's Thor movies, not because they're bad, nor am i saying they are, but because now so many people think THAT'S how they go/went. I'll stop my ranting though right now before it gets outta control. :XD:

Denmark fits Loki perfectly like Finland fits Tyr, the god of war with that attitude. Aaaaand then there's Iceland who makes a perfect Balder, beautiful as him
