I’m sure it comes as no surprise that I was a dorky kid… not all that much has changed! I lived more in books and my imagination that in this world… I’m pretty sure that hasn’t changed.
I’ve always been a huge comic book fan. When I was about six or so I spent a significant amount of time in the hospital having and recovering from surgery on my eye. I remember my folks bringing me over a nice big stack of comics to help pass the time. Fantastic Four, Hulk, Spider-man, Scrooge McDuck. It wasn’t too long after that when I discovered The Mighty Thor! I loved the character right away.
At about 8 or 9 I even dreamed of being old enough to change my name to Thor one day (I never really liked the name Todd as a kid). The Mighty Thor Powelson! Ha! I outgrew it quickly and realized that sounded pretty dumb, but I sure still liked Thor. And it all worked out anyway. My full name is Arthur Todd Powelson, and I discovered that Arthur actually means “Eagle of Thor”. So I’ve got that going for me, which is nice…
The online tshirt company Threadless has regular design contests, and when I saw their “Design a Thor T!” contest, I knew I wanted to participate. You can see my tshirt design at the top of this post. I hope you enjoy! If you do, I also hope you’ll take a minute and vote for my submission:
It’s Clobberin’ Time!
