Ten days have gone by since a Baltimore County couple had their 13-week-old deaf puppy stolen during a burglary, and they continue to pass out fliers, raise money for a reward and hope that Thor will be returned unharmed. "That's our family," said Mike Lenhart. "We want our family back. " On March 13, Anna Hiken returned to her Timonium apartment to find it ransacked. Missing was a 55-inch flat screen television, a PlayStation 3, a MacBook Pro, other electronics and Thor, the puppy Lenhart had gotten her just before Valentine's Day. Hiken, 20, a Towson University nursing student, and Lenhart, 25, a manager at a Buffalo Wild Wings restaurant, adopted the puppy from a family off of Craigslist but only learned about the dog's disability several days later when they saw that the puppy would not respond to his name or commands.

Not only does he see it, but he turns it into one. Which is why, unlike the average citizen, he's an award-winning creator of superhero costumes. "Yeah, I found parts of Bumblebee on the side of I-95," says Day, 45, whose take on the most outgoing of the Transformers, that alien race that can turn themselves into motor vehicles, won 2009's inaugural Baltimore Comic-Con costume contest.

Stan Lee is one proud father these days. You'd be proud, too, if your progeny included Spider-Man, Iron Man, Thor and the Fantastic Four — characters whose films routinely bring in a few hundred million dollars at the movie box office. Not that Lee has much to do with the movies themselves: His connection is restricted to a largely honorary executive-producer credit and a cameo in each film — as a swinging Hugh Hefner-type in "Iron Man," mailman Willie Limpkin in "Fantastic Four," an Army general in this summer's "Captain America.

Thor, the Marvel Comics superhero, hammered his way into movie theaters over the weekend, saving the world, winning Natalie Portman and grossing about $66 million. Kenneth Branagh's "Thor" is based on Stan Lee's Thor, which is based on the Thor of Norse mythology — god of thunder and protector of mankind. Some pioneering scientists of the early 19th century were so taken with Thor's immortal powers that they named a radioactive element after him. Nearly two centuries later, some modern scientists, including a Nobel Prize laureate, believe thorium could play a major role in saving mankind from global warming.
