This was a redesign of Thor that I've been wanting to do for a while. I combined ideas of the regular Marvel Universe Thor, The Ultimates and the Movie Design and then ran with it. I took his cape away (it's cool and all, but I was taking some cues from the Ultimates). I did however add some red to his overall design by adding in the red cloth under the gauntlet. I added the gauntlets so that he can shield ever heavier attacks. I mean he may be powerful and all, but if he's going up against somebody as strong as him or stronger, he's going to need it (plus it looks cool).
