Sengoku Avengers: Thor by genesischant Sengoku Avengers: Thor by genesischant
More of my Sengoku Avengers-- Marvel's Avengers reimagined as Japanese warring-states era heroes.




Thor is reimagined as 'Raijin'.

Born of Izanami and Izanagi, Raijin is a powerful god of storms and thunder. He was sent down to Earth in human guise to stop the destruction waged by his brother, Kagu-tsuchi, god of fire and devastation.

Raijin has godlike strength and durability, and he wields a whirling manriki (meteor hammer variant) to frightening effect. He is good-natured and kind to mortals, but quick to anger and exceedingly stubborn.

He searches the islands of Japan to put an end to his brother's plans to sow chaos in the human world.

They all look very awesome; and your understanding and incorporation of Japanese Mythology into your works is also fascinating. I love Reimaginings; and you know how tot do them right.
You're not the only one that does reimagings right; but you do such a tremendous job!

What more can I add but...boo yeah! I'd have given this character a tetsubo, but that's just me, praising with faint damns...

I also like the ties to Raijin. Neat stuff. You know which character I'm looking forward to, and I hope to see him next :)

I've done some work on that particular guy already, but Hulk was further along, so he's out first.

Raijin is usually depicted as a demon with horns beating a drum.

Hence the drum tied to his waist, right?
