First Appearance: Cage I#5 (August, 1992)

Powers/Abilities: Thor Kid didn't have any superhuman abilities, but he was street tough and carried hammers to use as a weapon. He also used guns on one occasion.

History: (Cage I#5) - After attempting to mug a young man named Troop, Thor Kid was attacked by Luke Cage. Calling out the rest of Trash they fought the hero until the people of the neighborhood united to chase the gang away.

(Cage I#11) - Trash approached Troop offering him membership in their gang to help take down Cage. The team went to Rapidfire and arranged to work for him, getting guns with armor piecring rounds that could kill Cage. They set up an ambush, but Troop warned Cage and things got chaotic. When Legs refused to shoot Cage, Thor Kid hit him with his hammer and took the gun. Razor Cut then stabbed Thor Kid with his hand and told him that Trash would survive without him. Thor Kid was not seen after the building exploded and was likely dead.

Thor Kid said that he had helped the rest of Trash carve out a name for themselves in Chicago. That may have been true. He also thought of himself as the boss of Trash, but they really didn't feel that way about him.

Thor Kid claimed that "Thor use 'ta hang around here. He cut back to New York, he left me in charge." While this is obviously a lie anyway, I'm not sure if there was a point when Thor hung around Chicago or not.
