'The Destroyer" Checks Out The Acura From "Thor"

Sneak Peek the new Acura car commercial featuring Marvel Comics 'The Destroyer' checking out the new Acura, designated car of the upcoming Marvel Studios motion picture "Thor", while a soft drink commercial spot features actor Chris Hemsworth as 'Thor', interacting with a "Dr. Pepper" vending machine.

"Thor" the motion picture, based on the Marvel comic book super hero character, is directed by Kenneth Branagh and produced by Kevin Feige, starring Chris Hemsworth, Natalie Portman and Anthony Hopkins.

Screenplay is by Ashley Edward Miller & Zack Stentz and Don Payne from a story by J. Michael Straczynski and Mark Protosevich.

'The Destroyer', created by writer Stan Lee and artist Jack Kirby for Marvel Comics' "Journey Into Mystery" #118 (July 1965), is an enchanted suit of armor forged by 'Odin', as a weapon to face a dark menace from the stars.

The Destroyer is lifeless on its own - although it can act independently for short periods, until animated by the life-force of a sapient living being.

Even when so animated, the Destroyer retains a rudimentary base personality that will eventually subvert the host. Once animated, the Destroyer possesses strength to exceed super-powered beings such as Thor, able to withstand a million tons being thrown onto it.

The armor also has the ability to project blasts of energy/heat/concussive force, emit a disintegration beam activated via its visor, manipulate electro-magnetism/molecules and achieve flight.
