Thor: Love and Thunder just recently hit the theaters, and fans have been appreciating his relationships with other characters throughout the franchise. For the past eleven years, the god of thunder has made several friendships in his own movie and in The Avengers.
It is safe to say that many of these relationships have greatly influenced him in his journey, from being exiled on Earth to defending Asgard from evil threats. These characters are indeed significant in Thor’s life.
Thor met Jane when he landed on Earth, and after she hit him a couple of times with her car, they eventually found love with each other. His relationship with Jane helped him become the god worthy of the Mjolnir. It was sad news when they broke up in Avengers: Age of Ultron because they seem to have so much chemistry, so it was great seeing them reunite in Love and Thunder.
Thor and Loki have a really complicated relationship as siblings. They always fight, but at the end of the day, they still care about each other. Of all his relationships, the one with Loki is the most dynamic and turbulent at the same time. Fans know how much Thor loved him when Bruce Banner insulted Loki and the god of thunder defended his brother’s honor.
Frigga is the Queen of Asgard and the one who plays a very significant role in shaping Thor’s life. His mother always believed in him, even when he was banished by his father Odin. They did not have a lot of interactions in the movies, but Frigga has always been her son’s guiding light.
Thor and Valkyrie initially did not get along in Ragnarok. Over time, she decided to help him save Asgard from Hela’s destructive plans. Valkyrie has shown many worthy traits that after the fall of the kingdom, he made her the King of New Asgard.
An unexpected friendship developed between Thor and Rocket Raccoon when the team of the Guardians saved him. Thor insisted that he must retrieve a weapon from Nidavellir, and so, Groot and Rocket accompanied him. They became good friends, and it was Rocket who got Thor back on his feet when he was losing hope.
Odin believes in honor, and the king will do everything to discipline his son and make him worthy of ruling Asgard. He banished his son for his arrogance and sent him to Earth to learn his lesson. They may have lots of arguments, but Odin truly loves Thor. Moreover, Odin also banished his firstborn daughter, Hela, after finding out about her selfish ambitions.
Lady Sif And The Warriors Three
Lady Sif, Hogun, Vostagg, and Fandral are Thor’s long-time friends from Asgard and constant companions in battles. When they learned that their friend was exiled, they conspired to save him. Unfortunately, the Warriors Three died at the hands of Hela in Ragnarok. Fans might not see them again anytime soon, but the multiverse is wide, so there is always a possibility.
