Marvel’s Avengers Reveals the Inspiration Behind Thor’s New Look

Every single hero in Marvel’s Avengers, developer Crystal Dynamics ‘ upcoming video game and publisher Square Enix, has their own distinctive design, but after all, every design has its origins. Given how many iconic iterations characters such as Iron Man and Captain America have had, it should come as no surprise that they have had some impact on the video game. And this involves Thor’s likes.

According to Crystal Dynamics game director Tore Blystad, just about everything Thor wears has some trace back to Norse iconography or mythology, as disclosed on the official Marvel’s Avengers Twitter account.
