He is a comic book hero come to life. With his hammer he is all mighty, without his hammer all he becomes is a guy with big muscles. Thor must become worthy enough to conquer evil on his home world. This was a great movie if you are into the fictitious world of make believe where anything can happen and have everything still end up right in the end. As far as kids go, all they would focus on would be how he relates to them to make them want to be like him.
