Powers/Abilities: This "Thor" imposter appeared to be a very muscular man and was probably in good physical shape (above average). He used a hammer, a copy of Mjolnir, which contained a device capable of producing huge amounts of electricity and releasing it as a lightning bolt. 


(Thunderstrike#10) - The man who would later impersonate Thor heard about the months of absence of the real Thor and planned to take advantage of the situation. Utilizing an energy device that was capable of shooting electric bolts, the man disguised himself as Thor and hid the electric device in a copy of Thor's hammer, Mjolnir. So disguised, he started to commit a series of robberies, scaring people and police officers with his act and destroying the opposition of the forces of order. During his first robbery, the false Thor was confronted by Thunderstrike. However, the hero didn't pay the necessary attention to the fight, so "Thor" easily knocked him out after a couple of powerful electric blasts.

The electric device revealed

    The more he continued his crimes, the more over-confident the imposter became, and he soon became convinced that the real Thor would never come back to Earth again or else was dead. But during an escape from the First National Bank, he was stopped by Thor with a beard, mask and armor (actually Thunderstrike in disguise)! The imposter's surprise was great, as great as the power of the god he had to hold back. His electric pseudo-lightning blasts were easily absorbed by the god's enchanted mace. A blow, a mace swing and the imposter was felled by the armored god, before being unmasked and arrested. He never knew that he had been defeated by another Thor imposter who was really Thunderstrike defending the honor of his Asgardian friend.

Comments: Created by Tom De Falco (writer), Ron Frenz (plot & pencils) and Al Milgrom (inks).

So where did the "electric hammer" go? Another Thor imposter could use it, or a team of Thundergod imposters!

The real Thor was also intervening to punish the imposter, but Thunderstrike got to him first.
