• After seeing the photos, online users realized that Thor is real and he’s from Norway
  • Lasse L. Matberg, a lieutenant in the Royal Norwegian Navy, is your real-life superhero
  • Matberg now has more than 280k followers on Instagram

Who said Thor is just a fictional character? — The superhero based on the Norse mythology, the Asgardian god of thunder who holds possession of a powerful hammer, the Mjolnir. Well, we think he’s real. And he’s in the Norwegian Army.

Lasse L. Matberg, who’s definitely not swinging a hammer to save the world, is a real-life hero as he is a lieutenant in the Royal Norwegian Navy. Standing 6’6″ tall, this naval officer extremely resembles a ‘Viking god’ with his brawny built, sexy beard, and long flowing locks. He  may not be wearing that tight-fitting costume with a cape, but he certainly can steal your heart away in that naval uniform.

30-year-old Matberg, who now has more than 296,000 followers on Instagram as of posting, totally rocked the internet with women – and even men maybe – going gaga over his photographs. Online users who probably could no longer contain themselves sent messages like “will you marry me?”

Check out some of the comments below:

jacyzanni: “Will you marry me? ? I’m Girl Brazilian hahaha”

noelle.jordan: “I have no idea what vikings looked like but I’m pretty sure they looked like you…are there more like you up in the north? If so I should plan my vacation differently…

cubanmandy96: “@emdixon look at real life Thor!”

devandaily: “So, you were originally cast as Ragnar in Vikings and turned the role down to be a fierce, golden, beefcake god of exploding pectorals, right? Of course.”

georgiabrowning: “@chlobonn I’m in love with a Norwegian God”

So move over, Chris Hemsworth. The girls need not go to Asgard anymore. We can all just move to Norway and probably join the Navy.
