Although Marvel’s Hollywood adaptations of Thor are pretty darn good, they do little to shed light on Thor’s history and mythology.

Variant Comics on YouTube have a great series of videos that delve into the history and mythology of a variety of comic book characters like Wolverine, Green Lantern, Deathstroke, Venom and many more. Naturally, they have an episode dedicated to Thor, which is perfect for Thorsday.
