    To be fair, it wasn't like Waid could go against the sheer stupidity of Secret Empire.

    Blame Spencer for writing it, and Aaron for allowing it first

    Oh, I blame everyone involved. Which is why I don't want any of them touching Thor again.

    LoL seed and Jarnbjorn above Mjolnir.

    Thor will probably get burned again by the Sun.

    also, Angels are above Norse Gods LoL.

    Asgardians are so trash this days.

    Newer voices are fine but I'm at a point where I'd rather have a writer I can better trust or have faith in as far as Thor and his mythos is concerned.

    I guess I'd also be lying if I said I wasn't worried a newer writer would be more prone to just continuing with Aaron's interpretations instead of doing something different.
    I see where you're coming from as far as trusting someone like Waid. I don't think I've really disliked anything he's done but I haven't really loved anything recently either. I think I'm at a place where I'd rather give someone a shot who might be amazing but I also might not like than reading someone I know will be ok. I'll take a chance at amazing over a certainty of fine. Waid, Jurgens, Abnett, Lobdell, Tomasi, Robinson, David... they've all had their time and I think they're just blocking other writers from getting opportunities at this point.

    But I've really liked Aaron's run so I don't have the same concern for a writer continuing his version/storylines. Maybe you're at a place where you value stability and a "first, do no harm" kind of vibe. I can understand that. But I'm curious why you think a newer writer would be more likely to continue Aaron's interpretation? I'd think the fresh voices are ready to make a mark and tell their own stories rather than a continuation? Or you're saying one of the old guard would be more likely to return Odinson to an older status quo?

    I'll definitely second this. His "Abbot" is really good too, check it out if you get a chance. He's a very different writer (and from what little I know, person) than Aaron so it would be cool to go in another direction than where we've been for a while now. And "different than Aaron" would definitely make some regular posters here happy at least so it has that going for it, which is nice.

    Me, personally, I genuinely love Waid's work. I think he would be really fun and cool on Thor .
    But I've really liked Aaron's run so I don't have the same concern for a writer continuing his version/storylines. Maybe you're at a place where you value stability and a "first, do no harm" kind of vibe. I can understand that.

    Basically I think newer writers would probably continue what Aaron's doing because that's been the predominant "voice" on Thor for the past few years and is what probably quite a few people have been exposed to. Might be a newer writer is more concerned with building off of that then would be interested in Thor's previous history or what he was like before Aaron.

    But it probably depends on the writer.

    Is Aaron really going to rehash the "Thor hangs on a tree to get a power up" plot

    In a very well written story that made a valid and excellent point which matched the wider event’s theme of corruption through manipulation of information. This somehow became misinterpreted by Thor fans despite not being particularly controversial.

    Waid’s strength IMO is this kind of short and pointed story, but as often is the case amongst fandom, strengths are turned into things to criticise.

Or is it more like having a flashback but it affects the plot of the main story.
    The ToA stories are an important influence towards how Thor came to be written, but in general they are not considered canonical. Later retellings contradict that material and more recent flashback material is carving out a new backstory.

    I agree however that they are very good. Indeed the fact that they were such fun and so popular was what provoked the change in direction for Thor comics towards a more adventurous and fantastic style.

    For more context this article is an interesting read.

    ToA also heavily influenced Kirby’s New Gods.

    I wouldn't be surprised.

    That's all dependent on if you see something as a strength or not I suppose

    I thought it was a fine issue but it just misused Thor like he was throughout the entirety of the Secret Empire event.

    The competence of a writer is pretty easy to assess regardless of tastes. Waid’s competence as a ‘done in one issue’ writer is pretty evident, and that specific skill is relatively rare in modern comics.
