Major Story Arcs
From a young age, Amora had always desired Thor, although she admitted that this was only because he preferred Sif over her. This caused a bitter rivalry with Sif to ensue after Amora attempted to seduce Thor in hopes of keeping him for herself. To do this, Amora allied herself with Loki and the two of them developed a plot in which they manipulated Sif into stealing the Mirror of Mycha from Karnilla's s palace. Once in possession of the mirror, Amora took it so that she could use its power to have Thor for herself. After their success, Amora and Loki decide that the mirror must be returned to its rightful place, lest their plot be discovered. However, they could not do this without the cloth that the mirror was originally draped in, at which point Loki showed his true colors when he stated that he had no connection to their crime, leaving Amora to take the blame if the mirror is not returned. Before Amora could chastise Loki, Sif and Brunnhilda appear, demanding that Amora revert her spell on Thor as payment for the return of the mirrors cloth. Amora immediately refused, and the four young gods quickly entered into a brief battle until it is interrupted by Thor who threatened to inform Odin himself about the whole ordeal. Brunnhilda then shattered the mirror, breaking the spell placed on him. With his mind clear, Thor admitted he expected no less from Amora, but was disappointed in Sif because she attempted to use trickery to gain his love, although the two made up before the story's end.
During the "Acts of Vengeance" storyline Amora seduces Doctor Strange while using the alias of Amora Incantare, she asks him out on a date, which Strange quickly accepts. However, it instead turns out to be Rintrah disguised as Strange who accompanies her. Amora quickly defeats him believing him to be the real Doctor Strange. However, she and the Executioner are then attacked by the real Strange, who gains the upper hand after when he receives help from his lover Clea. The duo manages to defeat the duo, forcing Amora to leave and abandon this Executioner. Later, Amora enlisted the aid of Arkon, hoping that his brawn may succeed where her beauty did not. Armora demanded that Arkon destroy Doctor Strange and marry Clea, and although reluctant. Arkon was forced to accept her task because Amora had stolen his Bolts of Transport, making it impossible to return to his home world unless he performed as Amora demanded. Arkon confronted Strange and bested him in hand to hand combat. Although he was ultimately defeated by Clea who sent him back to his home when Amora abandoned him.
She tried many times to woo Thor, but during a great crisis when the World Tree was under attack and Thor had been cast down to Earth by Odin, Thor actually willingly turned to Amora, who was also trapped on Earth, and the two began dating. This lasted until Thor seemingly died during the battle against Onslaught. When he returned from that adventure, he moved on from his relationship with Amora and the two have not been together since.
