     When I read my first Thor comic (#249, from Simonson's first run), I
already knew how Thor was supposed to look and wondered why Marvel got him
wrong.  Only later did I start to suspect they made him clean-shaven and with
long blond hair so that they could plausibly have him cross-dress should they
ever decide to do that story.  ;)
