(Ruby-Spears Thor cartoon) - Banished by his father Odin and sent to Earth in the mortal form of the lame Doctor Donald Blake, Thor rediscovered his true identity when he found his mystic hammer Mjolnir, transformed into a wooden cane. Striking the cane on the ground transformed Blake back into Thor, who proceeded to fight foes such as the Destroyer, Frost Giants and Trolls. When the Midgard attacked an unidentified Asian city, Thor battled the beast, and on another occasion as he battled an unidentified foe he was secretly observed by the villainous Loki and Karnilla, Queen of the Norns, who had struck up a dangerous alliance with one another.
Comments: Created by Jack Kirby and Alfredo Alcala, based on the character created by Jack Kirby and Stan Lee.
During the early 1980s Jack Kirby worked with cartoon studio Ruby-Spears providing concepts for a massive number of potential new series and characters. Alongside the brand new characters he came up with, sometimes he suggested licensed properties the company might go for, one of which was Thor. Though the pitch ultimately never went anywhere, various character studies done for the potential show have subsequently resurfaced, most commonly on art auction websites.
