It was indeed a “test” for Thor to see if he would become worthy and so worthy to rule Asgard and return. We get a hint at this later on when Odin is talking to Frigga about it. Frigga: You can bring him back. Odin: No. His fate is in his own hands now. Thor To me this reads as Odin saying it’s up to Thor to change his ways and become worthy. Plus he casts ...

According to the Guidebook to the Marvel Cinematic Universe - Marvel's Thor, Odin tossed Mjolnir to Earth after Thor, so that it'd be available to him when he'd learned humility. Declaring Thor unworthy of Asgard and his title, power, and family, Odin stripped Thor of his armor and his hammer Mjolnir, and exiled Thor to Earth. Enchanting Mjolnir to be ...

Asgard is the people not the place. Odin states this in the same film and I believe Thor reiterates it later on. As such as Asgard is still around then he wouldn’t lose his powers. And of course there is also New Asgard in Norway that we could argue is the (new) place as well. Odin: Asgard is not a place. Never was. This could be Asgard. Asgard is where our ...

According to the film's novelisation, Odin didn't do this on a whim. He had carefully considered the nature and location of Thor's punishment and concluded that Midgard was the sole place he could learn suitable humility. Odin did not act without thought. And he had thought through the past day’s events quite thoroughly. He knew what he had to do, even if ...

It depends what you mean by Thor fighting himself from a different timeline. Since you mentioned time travel in your question, it sounds to me like you're asking whether the real Thor Odinson ever fought an older or younger version of himself from the past or the future. And if that's what you meant, then I don't believe a fight like that has ever happened. ...

Yes.* In Battleworld: Thors #4, Thunderer Thorlief was forced to battle Rune Thor after the latter killed Stormbreaker Ray. If mortals possessing the power of Thor count as well, then there's at least one more example: In Thor # 440 Zarrko tricks Dargo Ktor, the Thor of the future, in to fighting Eric Masterson (when he was still Thor, before he became ...

The goal was to prevent Thor from making any attempt to return to Asgard, at least while Loki conducts his semi-coup and conspires to have Odin attacked so that he can rescue him (and hence become King of Asgard instead of Thor). By kicking away Thor's support structure (banning his friends from 'rescuing' him, making Bifrost travel illegal, telling him that ...

I don't think Thor's showings against Loki in the first Thor and Avengers movies accurately reflect how they compare in strength, as Thor essentially stated in Thor: The Dark World that he was holding back in those fights. You should know that when we fought each other in the past, I did so with a glimmer of hope that my brother was still in there somewhere....

Throg has the powers of Thor (or is Thor sometimes) and Thor can (or can't, depends on the writer) survive in space (so similar to a jar). One would assume the same is true of Throg and so it would entirely depend on the writer. We first encounter Throg in Lockjaw and the Pet Avengers and we get a brief origin story. In short though Simon gets cursed to be a ...

They are immortal simply in the sense that they are not of the earth. The word "mortal" sometimes merely means "human" / "of the earth". (See here, here). Therefore - precisely because of all the evidence you have given - I would argue that, when Odin says "She is mortal; illness is their defining state", he uses the ...

Dr. Strange's power varies from writer to writer. Remember that he single-handedly defeated Galactus a couple times, once even defeating a fully sated Galactus (Doctor Strange #17): By the way, Strange managed to re-create the universe after that, which Galactus had previously destroyed. Meanwhile Odin at his mightiest only got to momentarily stun and ...

Season 1: Episode 8 of Agents of Shield, "The Well", has an Asgardian stabbed through the chest and dying. Coulson indicates that what SHIELD knows of Asgardian physiology is that they heal rapidly enough that if you can put them in a situation where they can heal (here, removing the piece of staff in his chest and then Coulson manually holding his ...

''are you the god of hammers? the hammer was to help you focus your power it was never your source of strength'' - Odin

He banished Heimdall because Heimdall betrayed him. I think you got it backwards. At first Loki tried to have Heimdall on his side. There is a scene in the film where Loki asks Heimdall whether Odin was afraid of him; Heimdall says he wasn't, because he knew he was loyal to him as his king. So Loki says: Well, now I'm your king, so you'll be loyal to me. ...
