The Mighty Thor, God of Thunder

This illustration of Marvel’s Thor was inspired by a famous art deco painting of John Henry, the steel-driving folk hero. The character of Thor was taken from Norse mythology, but Marvel’s version is an all-American creation. I thought it might be interesting to use a famous image of an American folk legend to illustrate a character from modern American mythology.
