Thor, a Marvel Heroic RPG Character

I’m a fan of Marvel comics. Have been since I was a kid. When Thor came out last year, I went opening weekend and loved it. Great flick. When Margaret Weis Productions released the Marvel Heroic RPG last week, I nabbed the PDF on day one. Well, I’m watching Thor today and reading the RPG so I decided to stat out one of my favorite Marvel heroes.
