If I’d lost my brother, father, most of my nation and saw half of all life in the universe wiped out with a single snap of the fingers using the power of the Infinity Gauntlet, I’d probably also be looking to eat my feelings away. In possibly the most real side effect of seeing life as we know it given a 50% off discount, Thor’s reaction may just be the most relatable.
Avengers Endgame may show the god of thunder rocking a thunderous paunch, but it’s the survivor’s guilt that really defines the Odinson during his darkest hour. The misery of being the last god standing, his people forced to live a humble life and that one little bastard on Fortnite giving Korg some digital lip…It’d be enough to drive anyone into a legendary drinking binge that lasts over five years by the time Avengers Endgame kicked off.
And yet, he was still worthy. Worthy of his hammer, his status as the god of thunder and of being an Avenger. That’s why this Thor may just be the most beloved of the lot, a shellshocked victim of cosmic genocide who still finds some joy in life and begins to walk down the road that leads to healing. The best Thor, and now also the best Hot Toys figure:
Five years after the shocking events of Avengers: Infinity War, God of Thunder’s priorities shift towards playing video games with his best pals while attempting to drink every bottle of beer in the city! His unexpected descent into depression has turned him to an alcoholic, thus giving him a massive physical transformation.
In addition to the power paunch, you’ll get a few extra hands, Mjolnir and Stormbreaker. Double the hammers, double the thunder. There’s no release date yet, but do try to keep this Thor away from your sixth-scale Thanos lest they destroy your entire shelf in the ensuing brouhaha.
