Thor's original look included a regal red cape, circular chest installation, and enchanted hammer, Mjolnir. Thor's appearance in Marvel's Avengers combines fresh and familiar elements from his original design, including Crystal Dynamic's take on the legendary hammer.

"Thor's outfit is crafted in Asgard, and is inspired by classic Marvel designs, but also has a lot of details referenced from Norse history," shared Tore Blystad, Crystal Dynamics' game director. "His chest piece incorporates a classic 'Thor's Hammer' iconography , and many of the patterns and engravings are Norse. His hammer, Mjolnir has Norse inscriptions on the top, and its pommel in inset with goat's fur, a nod to the mythology where Thor's chariot is pulled across the sky by two goats. His cape design wraps around his neck and body armor, fastened by a brooch designed after Odin's ravens."

In Marvel's Avengers, Thor is taught a similar lesson after the events of A-Day when he witnesses Captain America go down with the Chimera helicarrier. He leaves Mjolnir at Cap's statue due to feeling unworthy of it.
