"So is this how you normally look?"
"More or less."
"It's a good look."
Jane Foster and Thor[src]

The Asgardian Armor is the protective clothing which would be worn by the Asgardians as they entered conflicts. It can be summoned by magic or magical objects, such as Mjølnir, regardless of what the individual was wearing before and has the capability to withstand numerous attacks.

History

Background

"Your usual full-armor look is a little more... conspicuous."
"So you're saying I wear that armor most of the time?"
Phil Coulson and Sif[src]

The Asgardian Armor was presumably developed during the beginnings of Asgardian civilization and has since been used extensively in cases of armed conflict, such as during the War with the Dark Elves.[1] It was predominantly used by Asgardians in positions prone to conflict, such as kings and members of the royal family (Bor, Odin, Loki, and Thor), guards of the Bifrost Bridge (Heimdall and Skurge), the Warriors Three, and the Einherjar.[2]

Worn by Thor

Attack on Jotunheim

Thor donned the armor during an attack on Jotunheim, where he recklessly reignited a conflict between the realm and Asgard. As a result of his arrogance, Thor was stripped of his armor and Mjølnir by Odin and banished to Earth. The armor's absence rendered him defenseless to the point that he was unable to properly fight during the Battle of Puente Antiguo, leading him to lay down his life to the Destroyer in order to save the people of Puente Antiguo. Despite being mortally wounded, Thor's act of self-sacrifice allowed him to reclaim Mjølnir which automatically summoned the Asgardian Armor, restoring Thor to full health.[2]

Battle of New York

In 2012, Thor donned the armor when returning to Earth to retrieve Loki, becoming a member of the Avengers, and during the battle against the Chitauri.[3]

Second Dark Elf Conflict

In 2013, during the War of the Nine Realms, Thor donned the armor again throughout the Second Dark Elf Conflict.[1]

Ultron Offensive

In 2015, Thor donned the armor when joining the Avengers to retrieve the Scepter, during the fight against Ultron in South Africa, the birth of Vision, and final confrontation with Ultron during the Battle of Sokovia. He wore the armor at the Avengers Compound before departing for space.[4]

Hela’s Arrival

Two years later, Thor traveled to Norway with Loki to locate Odin, where he and Loki used their powers to summon their respective armors during a fight against Hela. After crash-landing on the planet Sakaar in the resulting altercation, Thor abandoned the Asgardian armor for newer gladiator armor after being forced into fighting the Contest of Champions.[5]

Infinity War

Making Stormbreaker

In 2018, Thor once again regained his traditional armor after crafting Stormbreaker, the powerful successor to Mjølnir, on Nidavellir.[6]

Battle of Wakanda

Thor then used the armor to participate in the battle in Wakanda.[6] Shortly after his failure to stop Thanos and the resulting Snap,[6] Thor seemingly abandoned his armor for good, having fallen into a depression and unwillingness to fight.[7]

Battle of Earth

In 2023, following the Blip, Thor donned his armor to battle against an alternate Thanos and his army, where he dual-wielded Mjølnir and Stormbreaker.[7]
