    Default Thor Odinson, God of Thunder Appreciation 2019

    Since the old one was closed, here's a new place to discuss and appreciate the original (and best) Thor.

    Thor is great.
    All though i had not read as many stories of Thor as i have of other super heroes,there have been great runs of Thor.
    The first Thor stories i read were the Walter Simonson stories in Thor.Ever since then i liked the runīs of Tom de Falco,J. Michael Straczynski ,Matt Fraction and Jason Aaron.

    I don't remember when I first saw Thor but I remember it was an old-school art style, like, Jack Kirby era... wait... it's coming back... it was a sticker. A collection of superhero stickers I had as a child. I forgot who else I got but Thor was swinging his hammer... but if it was that sticker, and I'm pretty sure it was, then it's not Jack Kirby art, but a bootleg one, kinda like if you buy action figures at a cheap kiosk on the side of the road.

    I finally watched Thor Ragnarok yesterday. It took me a long time to watch it, because all the talk about how hilarious it was scared me. I have to say, I enjoyed it a lot. But I didn't think it was that funny. Some jokes I did like, especially when he and Hulk are screaming at each other, but I wouldn't say the movie as a whole was hilarious to me. That said, I really liked it, which is a relief. It was way more enjoyable than Thor 1 and especially Thor 2 (which is probably the MCU movie I like the least. I'm not even sure I like it at all to be honest).

    I get why this whole repowering of the hammer was cut. It was a more powerful entrance the way it was presented in the movie. But I do with they showed this full scene in the deleted scenes of the Blu-ray. I so wanted to see this in full.

    Coincidently I just rewatched it having not seen it since the cinema. I was surprised how much I enjoyed it on rewatch. Originally I had a great time, but afterwards felt the humour undercut the weight of the action. Perhaps because jokes never land quite as hard the second time one watches something, I found myself being much more impressed with how the more serious content was handled and my overall impression of the movie has risen quite a bit. Also it is a move that rewards rewatching on a purely visual level. It would be impossible to appreciate all of the great design work and the numerous Kirby nods on a single watch.

    I agree that the film gets better on re-watch - the first time I saw it I liked it for the performances and the action, but found the Asgard scenes (which are very important to Thor's overall mythology) jarred with the light-hearted Sakaar section (which is the true heart of the movie,imo); upon re-watching it I find that doesn't bother me at all any more. It's now one of my favourite Marvel films and perhaps my most re-watched Marvel movie.

    To me the hilarious aspect of Thor Ragnarok disguises how incredibly dark the movie was Hela is clearly depicted as murdering a lot of people (in the past as well as in the present) before her reign of terror is halted by combined forces.

    Talking Happy Thor's Day!!!

    Thor #399 Jan 1989
    War of Gods: Part 5 of 6 "When Asgard Dies"
    In Asgard, the forces of life and the forces of death clash in fierce combat;
    Seth challenges Balder to single combat, and of course, cheats;
    Balder falls and returns Thor's power to him;

    The manacles holding Odin were really power dampeners, hiding his presence from Surtur;

    Odin imparts all his power to Thor to fight the fire demon when he arrives.

    Appearances by Loki, Karnilla, Hogun, the Enchantress, Sif, the Black Knight and the Earth Force.

    Script by Tom DeFalco, pencils by Ron Frenz, inks by Romeo Tanghal

    How about the Jurgens run and the Langridge/Samnee run? I thought they were both pretty good.

    Jurgen's run in the first two years is a pretty good book that's carried by Romita Jr. Then when he leaves it's just kinda meh even though it has a G like Adam Kubert. But then it gets way more ambitious and starts pulling its weight on the writing side in the last three years, but the resolution is so wack that it practically makes the whole thing a waste of time. It's a really weird era. One one hand, you can understand why it's not that popular and so little of it sticks. But on the other, it's so weird that one of the longest runs on a flagship character might as well have vanished into the void.

    One thing I like to see in 2019 for Thor is new writer hoping after this war of realms event is over whenever that is Aaron will leave and we get new writer at this point don’t care who it its as long as they fix mess that Aaron made of Thor.
