Thor has long been one of the most popular superheroes in the Marvel universe, and there have been plenty of debates over whether his home company was DC or Marvel. American comic book superhero Thor was developed by Jack Kirby and Stan Lee for Marvel Comics.

The character initially appears in Journey into Mystery no. 83 and was based on the Germanic god of the same name (August 1962). While this may seem like an argument over comic book characters, there’s something very interesting about it that many don’t know.

To understand why Thor works well as a DC and Marvel character, let’s first explore what makes him unique and what separates him from superheroes like Superman and Batman, who belong to the DC universe alone.

Does Marvel Own Thor?

No, Marvel does not own Thor. However, the character is closely associated with the company because he has appeared in Marvel Comics since 1962.

Is Thor DC or Marvel?

The version of Thor that appears in films like Thor: Ragnarok and Avengers: Infinity War is owned by Marvel Studios (which is owned by Disney).

A publisher may create characters, but usually, there are many versions for each superhero, and more than one publisher has purchased some characters to use in their stories.

Who Is The Dc Equivalent Of Thor?

The Norse god of thunder, Thor, is one of the most popular superheroes in both the Marvel and DC universes. Thor is a founding member of the Avengers in the Marvel universe, while in the DC universe, he is one of the Justice League.

So which universe does Thor belong to? Well, it depends on who you ask.

He can be considered a part of the Marvel Universe or the DC Universe because he is either a part of their respective teams – The Avengers and the Justice League – or his own character with his own solo stories in comics.

Who Did Thor Fight In Marvel Vs Dc?

Thor, the Norse God of Thunder, is one of the most popular superheroes in both the Marvel and DC universes. In Marvel comics, Thor is a founding member of the Avengers, while in DC, he is a member of the Justice League.

Both universes have used Thor as a way to battle their greatest villains. Thor fights Superman in 1978’s Superman vs Muhammad Ali, with Marvel winning the fight, but Thor later loses against Doomsday during 1993’s The Death of Superman. 

With this background knowledge, who do you think would win if these two heroes ever fought each other? While Thor has beaten Superman before, it’s worth noting that the Bronze Age version of Supes has many limitations and weaknesses which don’t exist in his current form.

On the other hand, Marvel has had several iterations of Thor throughout history, so it’s hard to say which one we should use for an accurate comparison. Nevertheless, many experts believe Thor would be no match for Superman due to his raw power alone.

Is Thor Patented?

There are a lot of theories out there about which comic book company owns the rights to Thor. Some say that he is a Marvel character, while others claim he is a DC character. So, who is right?

Is Thor DC or Marvel?

According to many sources, Marvel owns the rights to Thor and Loki – but not because they are more powerful than their DC counterparts.

According to one fan theory, Spider-Man creator Stan Lee created Thor as a joke after being asked what other superheroes were in the Avengers – then forgot about it and later brought him back when he needed another character for the team.

Does Dc Have Thor?

No, DC does not have Thor. However, many people think they must be related because they are both superhero comic book companies.

This is not the case! While Marvel and DC are both parts of the comic book industry, they are quite different. For one thing, DC was founded first in 1934.

Additionally, DC’s most popular characters include Superman, Batman, and Wonder Woman, while Marvel’s include Spider-Man, Iron Man, and the X-Men.
