They are the same, seriously.
Or, at least, really similar.
They started off as lanky social-rejects.
Then they became really buff in an unbelievably short amount of time.
But no matter what, they are a non-charming, socially awkward individual.
They have to help defeat an angered god.
And they team up with the angered god’s brother, who happens to be the god of thunder/lightning.
(Sure, Loki and Thor aren’treallybrothers, but step-brothers is close enough)
And not to mention they have bad-ass love interests.
Need I say any more?
