interesting enough, the depictions of thor is closer to modern than fat thor. if you look at norse paintings you can see that there is less muscle, a stomach but not much. more like say, a blue collar worker than a bodybuilder.
Look at the world champion weightlifter out of Georgia. Looks pretty chunky to me. They ARE fat. But not as fat as you think.
I may have seen different strongmen, because the ones I know may have some belly, but they also have muscles, like pecs, legs & arms (cannot judge that one accurately because of the bracers). But FatThor doesn't have the legs of someone strong that is his width
Thor was the god of kicking ass. Oh, and thunder. Not the god of beauty, that was Balder. Thor was known for being the strongest, feasting, quick tempered, and cleaver once he got the idea in his head that he couldn't solve his current problem with violence.
Like, once, just once, they make Thor look like how he is described in actual Norse mythology... and people go "Noooo, he should not be fat". Why? Thor *was* fat, the dude could eat a goat and a cow in one go, and did so, according to the tales. Also, even Marvel's Thor was fat at one point of time
@keroro Right? I don't know about this "fat Thor" discourse but I don't mind a strong man with some guts. But I'd be lying if I didn't appreciate a mean physique like Kratos too. It's all about the confidence really.
