The first installment of the Thor franchise dictated the journey of the God of Thunder from being obsessed with war to losing his powers and finally redeeming himself to be worthy of his godly status.
In the movie, we see Odin banishing Thor after stripping Thor of his power set and making him a mere mortal. The AllFather’s decision came after he stood witness to Thor’s want for war. ScreenRant has noted there is another aspect as to why Odin banished Thor.
In Thor: Ragnarok, we saw that Odin, before he subjected himself to being the protector of the Nine Realms, he was a conqueror. We were told that he was too thirsty for War and power and supreme-ness. But he soon mended his ways and committed himself to take care of the Nine Realms that he was supposed to look out for from the very start.
So, this adds another angle as to why he banished his son in the first Thor movie. He knew what was going to happen if Thor wasn’t taught a lesson because he himself knew exactly what Thor was after since he had been at that place too. He didn’t want the same fate for his son. So, we could say that he saw himself in Thor at that time and did what he had to.
Odin wanted Thor to steer clear of the mistakes he was pursuing and this move ultimately led to Thor becoming a worthy God of Thunder. Ever since then, he has always worked for the greater good.
We saw Thor getting the ultimate weapon in Infinity War but even with this, he was unable to stop Thanos from completing his goal. Avengers Endgame showed a little glimpse of Thor which suggested that he regretted not going for the head and was anticipating a rematch soon.
