    Reminds of Earth Spirit, in that he wants to do a bit of everything.
    Tone that down a bit.
    He cannot do stun and miss and disarm and dispel and slow and critical.
    Its a design mess.
    Find the one thing it wants to do, and do that one thing.

    The E is a mistake.
    3s is too much to sit about.
    I understand it deals dmg, but
    If you sit still for three seconds
    Promising that if they let you live, you'll destroy them
    You are mini-supernova.

    I think you might want a passive on the E.

    Also, Q is Sven's Storm Bolt with Blink.
    Could almost be Sven's Aghs.

    Thing is the E is basically like Enchant Totem in that it does a AoE effect as well as boosting damage. Also the charge can be interrupted, it only hurts those right next to him, and can be cancelled early and thus wasted.

    By itself his Lighting Flash and Thunder Crash aren't that impressive compared to the spells other Heroes have. Some have a AoE stun or more slow/damage to them. That's were the E comes in. It provides extra effects to help Thor fulfill his main purpose: getting into the thick of things and messing up the enemy. The abilities synergize so that he can either Stormcall and then Flash in and Blind the enemies around the impact and then Crash them to keep them from running/attacking or Flashing in, Crashing them, and then Stormcalling to do some DPS around them while they're clustered.

    Sorry if he's a bit 'busy'.

    He can be busy without having to do all that.
    Make it more elegant. It's doable.
