Hey guys I have an question. Im looking to make my own Thor character but I wanted to make sure it isnt crossing the copyright line. Iv asked the question on yahoo answers and people say as long as it isnt the same character then im clear. And to be clear he will have similarities, the magical hammer, super strength and the lightning control. And as hes a Norse god in real mythology he cant technically be copyrighted only the one thats created can, so what do you guys think?
Thor himself is not copyright-able, only the Version of Thor that Marvel has created. So long as you are not making him resemble the Marvel version. In fact the Mythological Thor is usually depicted at a red head with a red beard, and not a blonde like Marvels version.
