The characters from MCU’s Thor have distinctive qualities that make them fascinating and memorable. Their combined strengths and flaws make them unique, and they set them apart from the rest of the MCU franchises.
It can be easy to liken these characters to the well-known Harry Potter series. Besides, both are treading on the tangents of magic, love, and truth. Some characters from the live-action adaptation of J.K. Rowling’s novels act similarly to the ones from Marvel Studios. Here are the major characters from Thor and their Harry Potter counterparts:
Loki And Severus Snape
It is quite easy to spot the similarities between Loki and Snape. In fact, if Loki goes to Hogwarts, he will be definitely categorized as a Slytherin. They both have brooding personalities, full of mystery and secrets. And one does not really know where their loyalty lies.
Both have sarcastic attitudes, too, and they tend to criticize everyone around them. They do not usually express their emotions for fear that it may be viewed as weakness. In the end, they both had significant character development which served as their redemption.
Odin And Albus Dumbledore
They are both all-knowing, and their characters in the movies radiate so much omnipresence. Odin knows everything that happens within Asgard, and that is the same with Professor Dumbledore. However, they are both secretive, and they tend to withhold a lot of information.
Despite so, they are very esteemed and admirable. Odin and Dumbledore value honor and honesty, and both want Thor and Harry Potter to do the right thing.
Hela And Bellatrix Lestrange
A duel between Hela and Bellatrix Lestrange might be a spectacle to watch. Two powerful beings with unlimited powers, Hela and Bellatrix look the same and possess the same attitude towards power. They crave it and feed on it, and it is quite common to see them go off the rails.
Both Hela and Bellatrix have no fear of killing people, even family members. They are wicked and ruthless and only answer to the pleasure of gaining power.
Jane Foster And Hermione Granger
Both intelligent and determined, Jane Foster and Hermione Granger can become best friends. They both love studying, especially discovering the magical world. Jane and Hermione always stand up for themselves and do not let bullies get the best of them.
Their strong will and tenacious spirit are the guiding light to which they pursue the path they walk on. Jane has won a Nobel Prize for her extensive research work on convergence, and Hermione has become successful in her career at Hogwarts.
Thor And James Potter
They may not appear similar at first, but Thor and James share many traits that prove they are the best counterparts. Both of them are loyal to their family and friends and will do everything to protect them at all costs.
Another trait they both possess is being too ambitious. Thor and James take pride in their natural flair that one needs to pull them back to keep them grounded.
