The Thor's Beard wiki last edited by X35 on 05/24/13 12:35PM View full history


After Thor's face was scarred by Hela, he grew a beard to cover his injuries.


Thor's Beard was created by Walt Simonson.

Beard Evolution

Thor sported his beard for quite a while until he eventually shaved it off at the insistence of the Warrior's Three. Thor's Beard has resurfaced several times since.

Major Beard Arcs

Mutant Massacre

Thor's Beard made it's public debut to the people of Midgard during the Mutant Massacre when Thor's Beard accompanied the Thunder God to the sewers to help X-Factor battle against the Marauders.

Traitor in our Midst

The Avengers are betrayed by one of their own and Thor's Beard ain't too happy about it (neither is Thor).

Under Siege

In the classic Avengers story, the Masters of Evil take over Avengers Mansion and have all but defeated the team... until Thor's Beard arrives and helps Ant-Man and Wasp turn the tide of the battle.

Contest of Death

When the Avengers fought against Death, Thor's Beard was one of the many who died only to be resurrected by stories end.

Assault on Olympus

When the Avengers were the target of the Gods of Olympus due to injuries Hercules had received while a member, Thor's Beard played a vital part in the infamous "Battle of the Beards" between him and Zeus.

The Morgan Conquest

Thor's Beard returned in the opening saga of the Avengers in the post-Heroes Return world.

Lord of Asgard

When Odin perished, Thor assumed rule over Asgard and throughout his tenure as Lord, Thor's Beard returned to his face possibly to look more wise or because his consort Amora the Enchantress liked the way it tickled her face.


Thor locked horns with his Avengers comrade Tony Stark in Standoff, battling over who had the greater beard. Captain America got confused and joined in despite not having a beard.

Heart of the Infinite

Thor's Beard achieved an audience of Eternity and Infinity when cosmic-powered Pharaoh Akhenaten threatened the order of the Universe.
