Thor's ChildhoodThor is a hammer-wielding god associated with thunder, lightning, storms, oak trees, strength, the protection of mankind, and also hallowing, healing and fertility.
But little do we know about Thor's earlier years when he was still striving to find his identity as a god. Almost during his entire childhood Thor was taking ballet classes, dreaming of becoming the god of dance.
And his dancing was so intense that lightnings would run through his body and all around him. His leaps were gracious and wonderful, and he could jump so high that he almost reached the outer space sometimes, but whenever he landed back on the ground after such great leaps, the mortal lands would shudder beneath the thunder from his feet. And he was still just a child!
As a teenager, Thor was extremely flexible and hard-working to the point of fanaticism, he spent hours a day to improve his oversplit, and with some assistance his legs could stretch further than those of some rhythmic gymnasts.
In his late teens, alas, Thor somehow dropped out of ballet, feeling that his body was growing and it was no longer the light and lithe body of a child, so he changed his interests to bodybuilding to start a new fresh chapter in his life. And that chapter led to the building of his new image that we all know very well.
