And just about any Marvel hero you can think of (except the Hulk; I haven’t found the Hulk Thor yet, given their relationship tracks).

There is a Thor with the head of a lizard, one with the head of a cat, and the other with the head of a boar. For every change of costume of the original hero that appears in the comics, there is at least one Thor. Most of them appear to be carrying hammers, but he has not married them; Some have battle axes, swords, eyes – yes I said “ankh.”
