Veterans and Asatru: Thor's Hammer

One source of stress for new Heathens is that the Christians will belittle your religion.

Why is Thor so Popular?

I've often been asked why Thor is so popular. He is one of the best known Gods, even outside of the Asatru folk. There is a major comic book franchise based on Him. That is mighty impressive in a heavily Christian world. So what does He have that makes His comic books sell better than those of other religious figures?
