Has Marvel ever had civilians worshipping Thor as a God? Seems like something that would happen if Thor literally was on earth and saving lives.

Also, would Thor be cool with being worshipped?

There are some people that do in 2099.

If you consider Agents of SHIELD canon, there was a Norse pagan hate group:
agentsofshield.wikia.com/wiki/Berserker_Staff
In 2013, a Norse Paganist hate group found a manuscript with directions for finding the staff and located the piece in the Trillemarka National Park in Norway. Afterwards, going on a rampage through Oslo, injuring twenty people in their wake and burning the words "we are gods" into the street. This started a race between the paganists, Randolph and S.H.I.E.L.D. to locate the various parts.The race came to a head in Ireland where S.H.I.E.L.D. confronted the paganists and took the recombined staff into their possession.

No it doesn't because there are hundreds of people doing that.

Punisher 2099 was a Thorite.

A story happens every now and then of people worshiping him or the other gods. It usually doesn't end well.

Yeah but they aren’t literally gods

Doesn't it trigger T'Challa that Odin is worshipped?

Benjamin Torres

No it just triggers the fact that he lost to a Chad.

The latter half of Jurgen's run was pretty much all about this. After he became King, he moved Asgard over New York and people started worshipping him and formed the Church of Thor.

Yes
This was in the background during some Doctor Strange scene, I believe

Read comics you casual fucks. Why are you even on a comic board if all ur gunna do is talk about capeshit tv/movies?

To answer OP’s question, they do it in Ultimates which is 100% beginner/pleb bait so you should love it.

Thorism is a major religion in 2099, basically replacing christanity as Thor becomes a Jesus symbol.

I think at one point it's outlawed.

Thor 330 and 331 are about this exactly. And the villain is a zealous priest empowered by the ghosts of his crusader ancestors.

Anyone else find it kind of bugging them that Thor's whole justification for not letting folks worship him is because "his time has passed"? I mean, what kind of lame answer is that? It's not like he demands blood sacrifice and cannibalism as sacraments!

What I want to know is how Thor would feel about white supremacists worshiping him and co-opting the symbols of his culture.

He'd be pissed. Thor doesnt give a fuck about race, and the whole worthiness deal was him learning he wasnt good, powerful or superior to anyone because of the circumstances of his birth.

I don't have the page but Black Panther and Thor got into a conversation about Neo-Nazi Odinists.
I can understand why they don't want Thor being worshipped beyond simply ruffling feathers of actual religious people, it's not very humble. Most Gods that demand worship in fiction tend to be more passive characters unless they're antagonists.

Pretty sure a recent story has had him showing up and telling them to knock that shit off.

Today I shall remind them that Thor was a nazi and fought the Invaders.

That reminds me, there's a Wonder Woman villain named Gundra. She's a nazi Valkyrie queen. She sees the Reich as an ideal expression of Norse worship. Odin disagrees, and hates her guts.

That's something I really liked about Ultimate Thor. He didn't demand worship but he actually claimed to be a god and that he was on Earth to guide his followers and the other superhumans towards some higher purpose. He even straight up said "my father works in mysterious ways".

I don't think anyone who hangs with Cap would be too tolerant of Nazis. Even most of his enemies, many of them former nazis, decry the ethos of national socialism.

I've unironically wanted to read the Ultimates to completion for a few years now because the stories sounded interesting and I liked most of the art and artists attached to it but every time the shitty writing turns me off a few pages in. The first two volumes were alright for what they were though, but I could never make it very far past that.

As other people have mentioned, by 2099 they were worshipping Thor as part of their religion.
So all the mentions of religions and cults in current (and 60s/70s/80s/90s/etc) modern comics is pretty much how most religions start.

Pic of some random comic, but it's basically copied from an issue in the 90s Punisher 2099 comic.
So Punisher 2099 was pretty devoted if he was willing to make Thor's Day special even for the prisoners in his basement.
