what’s interesting about the symbolism of thor in ragnarok is mirroring what dc is doing with superman ….. in that they are trying to break a god and deconstruct the meaning of what it means to BE a god. dc uses the symbolism of the “god is dead” as well as luthor’s metaphors through his paintings & religious babble, while ragnarok implies it by destroying one of the most powerful weapons in the marvel universe (which is later reconstructed anyways, but this is literally….for breaking thor as a god so ….. they needed it in there since mjolnir is an extension of himself), cutting his hair, capturing him, breaking him, etc.
and in the unworthy thor, thor’s current run, they are doing this trope AGAIN, stripping him of mjolnir because “gods are vain”, cutting his hair, making thor realize what mortality truly means ………. idk as much as i first was so appalled with some of the direction marvel has been going with his character in both 616 and the mcu, the more i think about THIS the more i kind of love the motifs & philosophies that they are trying to pull because it’s so subtle.
why i also don’t really LIKE it tho is because they’ve been using thor as a slapstick for awhile now, they’ve BEEN depowering him and underestimating him, forgetting him and treating him like a joke. so it makes the message of stripping him and deconstructing his divinity that much less meaningless as a plot arc, and more like a “oh look what they’re doing to thor again lmfao” kind of thing …… which is kind of cheap ……..
