The Mighty Thor

Thor (often called The Mighty Thor) is a Marvel Comics superhero, based on the thunder god of Norse mythology. The superhero was created by Stan Lee and Jack Kirby and first appeared in Journey into Mystery #83 (1962).
On a mission from his father, the omnipotent Lord of Asgard - Odin, Thor acted as a superhero while maintaining the secret identity of Dr. Donald Blake, an American medical doctor. Once Blake tapped his walking stick on the ground, it transformed into the magical hammer Mjolnir and Blake transformed into Thor. Thor often battled his adoptive brother Loki, another Marvel character adapted from a Norse god, and was a member of the superhero group the Avengers.
Thor originally debuted in the Journey into Mystery title, in the year 1962. From then on Journey into Mystery primarily featured Thor stories through issue #125 and Journey into Mystery Annual #1, at which point the series was retitled The Mighty Thor, as was the annual.
As a consequence of Heroes Reborn, Thor dropped out of his own series beginning with issue #503 and it returned to its original title. The series continued with the "Lost Gods" storyline and then with a rotating cast of characters, until finally ending with Journey into Mystery #521 in 1996. In 1993, a 4-issue mini-series was published, revolving around the concept of the Thor Corps. The members were Beta Ray Bill, Thunderstrike and Dargo Ktor, as well as Thor himself, and they were summoned together to fight a common threat.
When Thor and the other heroes returned in 1998, in the event Heroes Return, Thor once again recieved his own title. This title would run 85 issues and 4 annuals, before being cancelled. There was a mini-series published during its run called Thor: Godstorm, which revolved around Thor's battle with a new character known as Godstorm.
Since the title's cancellation, two other mini-series have been published. One of them, Thor: Son of Asgard chronicled adventures of a younger Thor. It started out as a 6-issue mini-series that was lengthened to 12 issues and originally described how a young Thor went on a quest with Balder and Sif, and ending with a storyarc in which Thor claims Mjolnir.
Thor: Blood Oath described the adventures of Thor and his friends the Warriors Three (Fandral the Dashing, Hogun the Grimm and Volstagg the Voluminous), who were also forced to go on a quest, unless they be executed for accidentally killing a giant during a time of peace, the giants being sworn enemies of the Gods of Asgard.
