Comments: “…To Wake The Mangog!” This is Thor as he should be in all his classic glory. Mangog is a huge hulking creature.
The story moves fast and jumps around a lot skipping from one character to another. It is great to see all these various Norse Gods. Thor though may well be the greatest of them all.
“Now Ends The Universe!” Balder is shown and he is a noble warrior of the Realm Eternal. The Warriors Three are in action, Fandral, Volstagg, and Hogun. Mangog runs wild as he travels Asgard. The art is gorgeous and the story thrilling.
“The Hammer and the Holocaust!” Mangog battles Thor, its alien creature vs Norse God. This is a fearsome fight between two opponents that will not stop.
“Behind Him…Ragnarok!” The battle rages on Thor vs Mangog. Mangog leaves Thor to attack Asgard and he finds Balder leading the armies of Asgard waiting for him. The art is on a grand scale. Odin, when he wakes, is power incarnate.
“Thunder in the 31st Century!” The Guardians of the Galaxy, the original ones are drawn perfectly here. They find Thor adrift in space.
“This Battleground Paradise!” Korvac and his minions fight the Guardians and Thor. The art on the Guardians of the Galaxy has them illustrated in such great poses and in action.
“Out of Time!” Thor and Spider-Man team-up. They battle a small army. There is some intensity in the art.
“Marvel Adventures Super Heroes Thor # 6” Thor and the Executioner were once pirates. Which leads to adventure on the high seas. An adventure Thor uses to impress a young Nova.
“If He Be Worthy!” Loki with Thor’s hammer how did that happen? He is the new protector of Midgard. Things do happen and Thor and Loki find themselves both wanting to wield Mjolnir but only one can.
“The Skrull Skull!” Here Ms. Marvel and Thor are illustrated in an animated style. Together they battle a Skrull war machine.
“The Serpent of Doom” The Avengers face Dr. Doom. He has an Asgardian weapon in his hands. This turns into the Avengers fighting the Midgard Serpent. Lots of action just it is toned down since this is a comic for a younger reader.
Thor is the Norse God of Thunder and a warrior, plus an Avenger.
