Charlton's version of Thor was a normal Scandinavian man who was weak and cowardly compared to his Viking brothers. He discovers a cave that glowed with strange light. Bathing in these rays caused Thor to grow strong. He also discovered a hammer-shaped object in the cave which, when thrown, shot lightning and destroyed any obstacles. Thor then became a hermit and lived in the forest. However, when invading Huns attack him, he throws his hammer, incinerating his foes. His actions became legend and the basis for myth.
