    1.0) Background
      This is section of the guide is completely worthless, but may be 
    entertaining if you are looking to learn about who the character is. In the
    following sections I provide the little snapshot the game gives him and info
    I know about him based on the games I've played.
    1.1) Game Profile
    (This came from the game, unless otherwise noted, so credit goes to the
    makers of the game for this section.)
    Real Name: Thor Odinson
    Occupation: Warrior, Adventurer
       Trained as a warrior, Thor excels at hand-to-hand combat, sword fighting,
    and throw techniques. With his otherworldly stamina and superhuman strength,
    ordinary attacks have no effect on him.
       Thor wields Mjolnir, a hammer forged from uru metal. Mjolnir is virtually
    unbreakable and allows Thor to command the powers of the storm; rain, thunder
    and lightning.
       Thor is the son of Odin, ruler of Asgard, the home of the gods. Known as
    the strongest warrior in Asgard, his prideful ways were reformed after
    spending time living as a human. Currently, he is a member of the Earth's
    mightiest heroes, the Avengers.
    First Appearance: Journey into Mystery #83 (1962)
    Intelligence      |  2/7   
    Strength          |  7/7 
    Speed             |  7/7     
    Stamina           |  6/7   
    Energy Projection |  6/7      
    Fighting Ability  |  4/7    
    1.2) Extended Profile
    This part is all coming off my recollection of the character from the 
    original stories he is apart of. Careful, there will be spoilers.
    In Norse mythology Thor is the god of thunder, among other things, and is one
    of the sons of Odin, the All-Father and creator of man. His weapon of choice
    is the hammer, Mjolnir, and little can stand before his might. If I'm not
    mistaken his death marks the start of Ragnarok, the Norse's version of the
    end of days.
    As far as his role in comics and his standing among the Avengers are concerned
    I don't have the slightest clue. I know he is among the most powerful heroes
    in existence because... he's the only superhero who is a fully fledged god.
    The only other gods that appear in MVC3 are Amaterasu, Dormammu, and the
    recent DLC character Shuma Gorath. 
    1.3) Alternate Costumes
    Costume 1 (X): Standard
      - This is how he is depicted and appears throughout our culture
    Costume 2 (Tri): White with Orange Cape
      - A holy look to the god of thunder. Intimidating to behold.
    Costume 3 (Sqr): Blue with Red Cape
      - I don't know what to say, but he pulls off the look.
    Costume 4 (R1): Black with Red Cape
      - An incredibly imposing version of the god of thunder. His white under
        armor in his standard costume is now gold.
    1.4) In-Game Dialogue
    This section contains notable dialogue the character says during battle. 
    Things like him shouting a character's name is omitted unless he refers to
    the character in a special way. Also, sayings directed at him by characters 
    that are unique are also written down. If I'm missing any please let me know,
    but make sure it's not like: Dr Doom while swapping mid-battle "Thor!"
       "Let yon battle be dedicated to Odin, the All-Father!"
       "I fight on behalf of all of Asgard."
       "Now you face the god of thunder!"
       "Surrender is thine only wise choice."
    to Amaterasu - "Tis fitting that two gods meet in battle thusly!"
    to Iron Man & Thor - "Surely wicked Loki is behind such an encounter..."
    to Capt America - "Because of my respect for thee, I shall end this quickly."
    to Shuma Gorath - "Midgard shall now be rid of your stench, foul creature."
       "Now you know the power of mighty Mjolnir!"
       "Surely they shall write songs of such a battle!"
       "Thou hast wasted enough of my time. Asgard awaits!"
       "Have my actions pleased the All-Father?"
    to Amaterasu - "It honors me to have fought a fellow god of such valor."
    to Iron Man - "You fought well... for a mortal."
    to Capt America - "Thou dost still have my respect, good captain."
    to Shuma Gorath - "Return to the vile dimension that spawned you evil one!"
    End-Level Dialogue Box:
       "Asgardians and Midgardians alike can rest easy knowing Thor is their
        eternal guardian!"
       "Odin will be pleased."
       "Behold, I am Thor -- the God of Thunder, son of Odin and defender of
       "Whosoever holds this hammer, if he be worthy, shall possess the power of
        Thor. I am he."
       "Those foolish enough to challenge Thor shall learn to regret their
    to Phoenix - "Ye be a fiery woman with spirit to match the bravest
        Asgardian! Alas, your skills fell short."
    Taunt: "clearly I am worshipped with good reason" or "Thou art not worthy."
    Mighty Tornado Activation: "By Odin's beard!"
    Mighty Thunder Activation: "I shall never tire!"
    Mighty Punish Activation: "Feel heaven's wrath!"
    Hyper Combo activation in a series:
       2nd: "Tis not over!"
       3rd: "Accept thy defeat!"

    2.0) Movelist

    Mighty Speech (22+H [hold])
      - Thor gives an incredibly long speech that rapidly builds his Hyper
       combo gauge over time. Can be stopped at any time you wish.
    2.4) Hyper Combos
    Mighty Tornado (236+atk atk) in air OK
     - Thor unleashes a torrent of energy around him in the shape of a tornado.
      Hits 15 times and launches enemies away.
    Mighty Thunder (623+atk atk)
     - After raising his hammer to the sky he slams it on the ground with amazing
       vigor, causing a chain of massive thunderbolts to rip across the screen
       and carry the enemy away. Effects floored enemies.
    Mighty Punish (63214+atk atk)
     - Thor grabs the enemy and smashes him/her with his hammer, sending the foe
       off screen. Seconds later the enemy falls back to earth and slams onto
       the ground with a strike of lightning brought by Mjolnir. Deals tremendous
       damage for a level 1, but is virtually impossible to pull off against a
       live opponent.
    3.0) Strategies
      In this section I will cover what combos I have developed that
    makes him a formidable character. The first sub-section covers specific 
    combos I have performed that are either very flashy or incredibly devastating
    or useful. The second section is meant to set up basic combos with him when
    he is the only character you have left.
    3.1) Team Hyper Combos
    Thor is a great substitute for close range characters, but only two of his
    three hyper combos can be comboed into (Mighty Punish cannot be chained with
    any move in the game). Below is a list of hyper combo chains he does well
    Zero [Rekkoha] --> Mighty Tornado
    Ryu [Shinku Tatsuma...] --> Mighty Tornado
    Spencer [Bionic Maneuvers] --> Mighty Tornado
      - AS THE LAST HIT CONNECTS cancel into Thor
    Spencer [Bionic Lancer] --> Mighty Tornado/Mighty Thunder
      - ON IMPACT cancel into Thor. Mighty Thunder is a beast the closer your
       back was to a wall.
    X-23 [Weapon X Prime] --> Mighty Tornado/Mighty Thunder
      - cancel into Thor after the last hit. Mighty Thunder does more damage the
        farther you push the enemy back with it.
    Captain America [Hyper Charging Star] --> Mighty Tornado
      - Can only be done if you did HCS to an enemy you are juggling and cancel
       into Thor before the enemy gets too low, but does a lot of damage. An easy
       combo is 2+L, 2+M, 2+H, 236+H, delay, Hyper charging star
    Dr Doom [Sphere Flame] --> Mighty Thunder
      - As sphere flame carries the enemy into the sky, cancel at the right time
       so that Thor's sparks start hitting just after the bomb explodes for max
    3.2) Solo Battle
    Thor is an awkward solo fighter because he lacks the combo-ative nature of
    character like Wesker and Dante, but he compensates by dealing tremendous
    damage. Below is a compilation of some combos I discovered for him.
    2+L, 2+H, 623+L, Mighty Thunder
    2+L, 2+M, 623+M, Mighty Thunder
    2+L, 2+M, 623+H, Mighty Tornado
     NOTE: Cancel off the explosive impact from 623+H
    2+L, 2+H, S, air M, air M, air H, 421+L, air Mighty Tornado
    2+L, 2+H, S, air M, air M, air H, 236+L, air Mighty Tornado
     - make sure to do the hyper combo cancel before the very last hit of mighty
    2+L, 2+H, 236+L, x-factor, S, air M, air M, air H, 421+M, air Mighty Tornado
    2+L, 2+H, 623+M, X-factor, dash, 2+H, S, air M, air M, air H, 421+M,
       air Mighty Tornado.
    Corner Only
    L, H, 236+M, S, air M, air M, air S, P1 or P2, 623+M, Mighty Tornado
    L, H, 236+M, S, air M, air M, air S, P1 or P2, 236+H, Mighty Tornado
    L, H, 236+M, x-factor, 236+M, Mighty Tornado
    L, H, 236+M, x-factor, M, S, air M, 421+L, air Mighty Tornado
    L, H, 623+M, 2+H, S, air M, air M, air H, air S, P1, 236+H, Mighty Tornado
    NOTE: The assist characters used in the combos above pick the enemy off
       the ground, like Wesker's Samurai Edge and Iron Man's smart bombs.
    4.0) Missions
    In this section we tackle the missions (or at least the ones I can do).
    Most missions are straight forward, but for some characters beating a mission
    requires rediculously perfect timing and if I have completed them this 
    section will be useful to those who are stumped.
    Ones I've Completed: 1-9
    Ones I have not completed: 10
    Mission 1 - Attack using Mighty Spark
     Solution: 236+H
    Mission 2 - Attack using Mighty Hurricane
     Solution: 63214+L
    Mission 3 - Perform a combo using a cancel
     Solution: 2+L, 2+M, 623+H
    Mission 4 - Perform a combo using a hyper combo cancel
     Solution: air H, 2+L, 2+H, 623+M, 623+atk atk
     Strategy: jump into the air and hit with air H just before you land and
            finish the combo. 
    Mission 5 - Perform an air combo
     Solution: 2+L, 2+H, S, air M, air M, air H, air S, 
    Mission 6 - Perform a combo beginning with Mighty Hurricane
     Solution: 63214+L, S, air M, air M, air H, air S
    Mission 7 - Perform a combo using a hyper combo cancel
     Solution: 2+L, 2+H, S, air M, air M, air H, air 421+M, air 236+atk atk
     Strategy: This combo is a lot easier than it may look, but the trick is
           finding a comfortable way to input 421+M and cancel into Mighty
    Mission 8 - Perform a cross-over assist combo (corner only)
     Solution: air S, 2+L, 2+M, S, air M, air M, air H, air S, P2, 623+H,
               623+M, 236+atk atk
     Strategy: After spiking the enemy from the air combo call in the assist
              character while you input 623+H, causing you to blast the enemy
              off the ground as you land and follow up with 623+M before your
              assist character stops juggling the enemy.
    Mission 9 - Perform a cross-over assist combo (corner only)
     Solution: air H, 2+L, 2+H, S, air M, air M, air H, air S, P1, 421+M (hold),
                  S, air H, air S
     Strategy: Using partner 1 to pick up the enemy into your fully charged
              421+M, then, after letting the enemy fall into range, finish off
              the combo.
    Mission 10 - Perform a special combo
     Solution: air H, air 421+M, M, S, air M, air M, air H, air S, 623+H (hold),
               236+atk atk
     Strategy: jump into the air and tip the enemy with air H and cancel into
              421+M and continue the combo from there. In the air combo you want
              to give a little extra pause between inputs so that you are as
              close to being done with your jump as possible before spiking the
              enemy so you have time to fully charge 623+H and hyper combo cancel
              for the finish.
