If all you know about the lady Sif comes from the movie Thor, then your idea of who she is or should be is probably confused. #ImmortalMonday is going to attempt clear the confusion.
The Lady Sif seen in the movie is based on a character of the same name from the comic books. She was created by Stan Lee and Jack Kirby in March of 1964 and just happens to have the same name as Thor’s wife of legend, although they are far from the same woman.
The Warrior Sif
She had dark hair and was one tough chick. Think Xena warrior princess. She could hold her own against or beside all the men in a fight any day. And she had no problem doing so on a regular basis. When she rode into battle with her mates, they were known as the Lady Sif and The Warriors Three. Now that’s the kind of gal I would like to be.
The Goddess Sif
Here’s the thing that make Mrs. Thor particularly interesting, on a soap opera kind of level: legend tells of a dispute between Thor and Loki, one that involves Sif. We’ve discussed it here before. Loki cut off Sif’s golden locks, upsetting Thor. Thor responded by forcing Loki to create a golden headpiece for the goddess as a replacement.
The question left standing was – how did Loki get close enough to cut her hair in the first place? According to Loki the two had spent the night in an unholy twist of bed sheets. Sif denied the affair. A case of he said she said and a forever unsolved mystery. Of course, if you were married to Thor, wouldn’t you want to avoid his anger and upset?
Fear the wrath of Thor’s Hammer!
What do you think? Do we have the makings of a scene right out of God’s Behaving Badly, only the Norse version?
Whether he is the man at her side in marriage or in battle, Thor is a constant and a favorite at this blog. Thor is our Norse god representative taking the world by storm on a blog tour. He is checking in today from Lynn Kelley’s spot, and I promise you…you will not want to miss this.
Her post will be up a little later today.
As far as a teaser, I’ll let this picture speak for its self.
Make sure you pop over there. I guarantee you’ll be laughing your Mjölni right out of your grip.
