Thor is literally moping around… pining after Loki and talking about resurrecting him… in the middle of the ruins of asgard and surrounded by the slaughter LOKI JUST CAUSED LIKE TWO SECONDS AGO
this is some fanfic level shit right here
Also, the fact that he is saying he has no one of his flesh and blood to share his pain with.
Balder, HIS HALF BROTHER.
I am a terrible person it makes laugh every single time I see it even while I want to pet Thor’s precious pouty head. Thor, you are such an asshole sometimes and I love you for it.
I love that panel so much because of this delicious irony.
Somewhere, Balder is just weeping.
But, it illustrates pretty strongly Thor’s feelings on family. Balder’s biological parents are Odin and Frigga, but he was not raised as an Odinson and instead grew up with a noble family in Asgard. This is probably why Balder has nowhere near the amount of issues that Thor and Loki have since Odin was nowhere near him as a parent. Thor views Balder as a trusted friend, but they do not share that intimate bond of brotherhood that Thor and Loki share, so much so that Thor actually considers he and Loki to be blood even though they technically are not, and he’s always known they are not. And Thor interestingly enough knew about Balder’s hidden parentage long before Balder did.
I’ll just. Slip this panel on in here. Even though I’m honestly always living in this weird AU where Balder IS raised as their younger brother, the dynamic of him being raised in a separate household entirely is seriously fascinating. I do think it hurts Balder to literally be locked out of the family, but isn’t it in Marvel canon a defense method developed over many Ragnaroks to (unsuccessfully) protect him from harm? Oh no now I’m going to my mental place where I think of each cycle as a fitful struggle against the inevitability of demise over hundreds of thousands of years. Help.
Thor, sweetie. You are just the saddest when you are trying to keep it together and distance yourself but you always fail in the end.
Balder was lucky that he was not raised by Odin because being raised by Odin usually means you grow up the victim of some sort of mental and physical abuse - I mean, look how broken Thor and Loki essentially are thanks to their father - but that separation really does seem to wear on him. He is forever the third wheel. Outside looking in on the relationship between Thor and Loki, and Balder really doesn’t have that sort of connection with anyone else. It’s probably part of the reason why Loki is able to manipulate him so well - Balder wants to be a part of that and fit in and please Loki and have that connection he’s lacking, and Loki plays him like a fiddle.
screaming because even though kim doesn’t share my love for loki/balder she still understands the underlying fabric of what makes me go crazy for it 100000000%.

Whosoever holds this hammer, if she be worthy, shall possess the power of Thora!
Happy Thanksgiving to ME
