Interestingly, Thor's Indic counterpart Indra is explicitly described as hari-smasru , which is often translated as "red-bearded", or "blonde-bearded", though elsewhere hari is often translated as "tawny" which admittedly is still in the same colour range. In part I think the colour is meant to be symbolic, as Indra's horses are also "hari" coloured, and the special Soma drink which is so closely associated with Indra is also "hari" coloured. What is interesting, is, rather like the Marvel Comics Thor, Indra has more recently been depicted as beardless.

Heimdall is the sentry of Asgard and a member of the Aesir the gods of the Norse pantheon. In some scholarly accounts, parallels have been drawn between Heimdall and the Vedic deity Dyaus, and also between Heimdall and the Christian archangel Michael see below. As a Norse deity, Heimdall belonged to a complex religious, mythological and cosmological belief system shared by the Scandinavian and Germanic peoples.

Along with Snorri Sturluson 's Prose Edda , the Poetic Edda is the most important extant source on Norse mythology and Germanic heroic legends, and from the early 19th century onwards has had a powerful influence on later Scandinavian literatures , not merely through the stories it contains but through the visionary force and dramatic quality of many of the poems.

Расход энергии даже чуть выше обычного: более полумиллиона киловатт-часов с полуночи вчерашнего дня. - И что все это. - Не знаю. Все это выглядит довольно странно. - Думаешь, надо вернуть им отчет.

Он понимал, что времени у него. Агенты могут появиться в любую минуту. Собрав все силы, Хейл, сильнее обхватив Сьюзан за талию, начал пятясь подниматься по лестнице.

Все крупные провалы в сфере безопасности в истории агентства происходили внутри этого здания. В обязанности Мидж как эксперта по обеспечению внутренней безопасности входило наблюдение за всем, что творилось в стенах АНБ… в том числе и в кладовке столовой агентства.

Он был позаимствован АНБ на военной базе Рота в обстановке чрезвычайной секретности. Двое сидевших в нем людей были напряжены до предела: они не в первый раз получали чрезвычайный приказ из Форт-Мида, но обычно эти приказы не приходили с самого верха. Агент, сидевший за рулем, повернув голову, бросил через плечо: - Есть какие-нибудь следы нашего человека.
