How tall is Comics’ Thor?
Thor is often described as large and strong in comics but not necessarily tall. He is a little taller than an average human who is very tall. The Marvel Encylopedia (2002) lists the height of mighty Thor as 6 feet and 6 inches. Thor’s increased height and weight are due to the high density of Asgardian bone and tissues, which are 3x dense than an average human being. This gives Asgardians superhuman strength as compared to humans. Even the weak Asgardian can easily lift 5-10 tons. Thor belonging to the warrior class, is especially strong and tall.
In comics, he is shorter than his father, Odin. However, he is taller than his evil brother Loki who stands at 6’4″. Hulk, the strongest and tallest Avenger, is 7-8 feet tall in comics. However, Bruce Banner, in his original state, is shorter than Thor at 5’8″. Alternatively, Steve Rogers, after injecting the serum, became Captain America and got a 98-pound weight. But his height remained the same, i.e. 6’2″. So he is shorter than Thor.
