    I think the similarities begin and end with his weapon of choice. that's it.

    Yup. And where's the smokestacks? Are you talking about the antennae on his head?

    Looking down from Asgard, Thor sees a beautiful woman.
    Consumed with lust he flies down to midgard and passing as a mortal he seduces her.
    Afterwards in bed, he is wracked with guilt and confesses to the beauty: "I am mighty Thor!"
    To this she replies, "Oh, thaths otay, I'm a widdle thor myshelf."

    And henceforth, for this classic joke, I will picture Animated Ultra Magnus.

    What KA said.

    On a related note, why no guns? Seems like all Animated TFs have "weapons", of all kinds, but no guns. No actual gun. Is it the superhero factor they want to focus on or just some anti-gun direction they're moving towards?

    I like the non-BFG style weapons.

    It makes them all little barbarians.

    :lol 

    It was a choice made for the show to focus more on hand-to-hand up-close and personal fights. The Decepticons still have guns and Magnus has guns, but they wanted to go with more intense conflict.

    I can see it, especially if you're talking about the mighty Thor of Marvel Comics fame. Very formal, very powerful, very imposing.

    I don't see the resemblance to Zeus, though. Zeus is a manwhore.

    i was going to say he was more like Zeus too...

    and why no guns? because guns made combat in bw, armada, energon, and cybertron very very boring lol

    the 2 sides would stand there, and fire at each other, sometimes even hitting and all they do is grunt,
    personally i prefer the hammer, ax, stars, mace and what ever else the autobots have lol. oh and the sword and num-chucks lol

    but the decepticons seem to have guns, lol blizwing has those cannons *he is a tank after all* megatron has his cannon, AND 2 swords, starscream has his arm guns, and even lugnut has those gun turrets lol.
