Read a surprisingly heartwarming "Thor" parody, starring the Muppets

Who is worthy to wield the hammer of Thor? Well, Kermit the Frog for one. And what he does with Thor's power might just leave you with a tear in your eye.

Caanan Grall, creator of the vibrant (and terribly funny) webcomic Max Overacts and Zuda's fantastical body-swapping comic Celadore, participated in this year's Comikaze 24-hour comic challenge with a Jim Henson-inspired parody of the current Thor movie.

Muppets are apparently in the pop cultural ether with their upcoming movie; just a few weeks ago, we saw the Muppets cast as the crew of Firefly's Serenity, and now they've wandered into the Thor flick.


But Grall doesn't just recast Thor with Muppets; he imagines how Miss Piggy might react to a naked Norse god invading her bus (hint: not well), and what Kermit might do when given divine powers. While the rest of the cast are cracking jokes and breaking the fourth wall, Kermit takes us to a tender place, making for an odd and bittersweet comic.
