    Just my own two cents but the whole obsession with humanizing an actual fictional god I think harms the character because the pendulum of "relatability" has swung too far in one direction, to the...

    I think with the Branagh version Thor was still humorous in certain instances. He had that gregarious and fun-loving tone in his speech pattern, despite his English being much more proper (in...

    I agree, I liked Branagh's take on Thor and Asgard. Would be interesting to see what he could do with the benefit of a far larger budget that Waititi had for Ragnarok. Ragnarok was a dumb action...

    Hate is a strong word. They're just movies. A few were very good, some were decent, and some are bad. I feel that the MCU is way too formulaic with their storytelling and their characterization,...

    I can't comment on the entire run but Thor and Asgard, since Fraction's run and on, feel way too humanized for my tastes. From speech pattern to behavior and so on.

    With the right creative team, yes. Especially if it was a mini or maxi series on its own free from idiotic crossovers.

    I doubt he returns to Thor. Plus I would not want Ed McGuiness drawing a Thor book.

    An Asgard show with a mythological/fantasy mixed with some sci-fi take would be great to see. Journey Into Mystery would be and apt title too. The MCU did a major disservice to the greater...

    I also think the obsession over RT scores and the box office is a recency phenomenon that is amusing, at best.

    I also thought Captain Marvel was a mediocre film. Not bad, not great. Just sort...

    I always thought it would be fascinating from a narrative standpoint in the MCU if they went the mythological/spiritual angle with the Thor franchise. Suddenly, these fantastical beings who were...

    Cap and Thor may bite the dust. Thor's entire family is dead and while there are some Asgardians left floating around in space, the fact that Marvel wants to make an Eternals movie suggests that...

    Other than Hickman, it'd be amazing if they threw some money at Neil Gaiman to do a run on Thor. Give him 40-50 issues and a promise of no crossover events that would derail his run. A pipe dream,...

    I'm not talking about power levels strictly, just generally as a concept. Virtually immortal races of deities with magical powers could be a cool corner of the MU, I just think they all sound the...

    I personally don't think Marvel handles the mythological/supernatural well anymore. As characters they've become watered down and aren't exactly distinguishable from powerful humans or aliens.

    Thor needs a writer of a certain caliber, like a Jonothan Hickman. Everything from the Asgardian characterization and mythos feels way too human. Nothing out of those preview pages reads like a...

    I think Hickman tackling Thor would be fascinating. He nails the "tone" of Thor's voice and his speech pattern (how I imagine hearing Thor speak). His knack for world-building is intriguing with...

    Writer: Jonathan Hickman. I liked how he wrote Thor with his speech pattern/dialogue. I never read his Ultimate Thor, but I think he could do a good job with the regular Marvel version.

    I disagree I think Jurgens' run is up there with the best. It does have its flaws but that was also because of how Marvel started changing in the early 2000's with the introduction of the Ultimate...

    Ah, sort of a magic trick that alters her physical appearance in some fashion to the human eye?

    Probably because we think of superheroes first and foremost as combatants if nothing else. I do agree with you, though. I like the idea of her being an antiquities and history expert. Gives her a...

    That's just it giving her vulnerability to a normal human weapon that causes less damage than a hyper-powered adversary just seems...strange. It's a lazy sort of way to portray vulnerability.

    Yeah I did like in the films showing her curating a museum. It can serve its purpose of being a public front and also in the "secret lair" she can house and study dangerous and magical/mythical...
