In exactly the same way that Prince Valiant permits an analysis of American Arthurianism and Green Arrow illuminates the American engagement with Robin Hood, so too an analysis of The Mighty Thor will allow us to shift our focus to the German and Scandinavian immigrants of the American Mid-West and the transmission of their folk heritage through the scholarship of men like Rasmus Rask and Jacob Grimm and through the questionable partisanship of men like Richard Wagner.

Keywords:   Thor, Vikings, Scandinavian studies, Grimm, Wagner
