In the MCU oftentimes what we remember most about our favorite heroes is their overcoming moment or how they vanquished the bad guy in the final fight. Yet, in our daily lives we rarely come across events of that magnitude. So how can we still be leaders like Thor in our daily struggles? Thor Ragnarok turns the superhero genre on its head, providing a character-driven buddy cop story where the heroes learn more from getting beat up than they do from winning. Odin's advice that Thor is the "god of thunder" not the "god of hammers" can only be realized once Hela crushes Thor's hammer and leaves him in a vulnerable state. Thor must become less so that he may finally learn that being a leader is about having compassion for his people, not defending his image. w/ Brian Nutwell
