If you're curious about the origin of Thor, it happened in an until-then obscure title called Journey into Mystery.

Before the superheroes took over, Marvel was producing a lot of 'movie monster' type stuff. Some examples: GROGG, CLAGG, FIN FANG FOOM.

The creation of the Fantastic Four saw the beginning of the Marvel Age of comics, but there was still some way to go before everything became heroic.

The crossover came with Incredible Hulk #1, and the roots of that story are easy to spot in this origin, with Dr. Donald Blake accidentally stumbling upon the hammer of Thor -- disguised as an old walking stick!
