    The Previous Thor Appreciation thread was closed but had two things I wanted to comment on.

    1. Gerry Conway's run on Thor was indeed impressive. I had read his run on FF and was very disappointed, but I was pleasently surprised by his run on Thor. He played up the fantasy level in a different way than Lee/Kirby, but was still consistent with their vision. Conway even gave Thor a "Conan" feel, I am referring to the "Kartag" story line circa issues 194 or so. Conway also brought back the Absorbing Man to the book. Which brings up the other thing I want to comment on:

    2. Top Ten Thor villains

    1. Loki
    2. Thanos (Hickman wrote an epic fight between the two in Infinity, but even before that Jurgans and Romita had Thor face him....I can't comment on Blood and Thunder yet cause I haven't read it yet.)
    3. Man Gog
    4. Ultron (reference the Busiek/Perez Avengers)
    5. The Absorbing Man
    6. The Wrecker
    7. Doctor Dooms Destroyer (Gage I think, post JMS Thor)
    8. Hela, if you count her as a villain
    9. Ego Prime
    10.

    I am going to leave 10 blank because I need to think about it some more, plus, I still have more reading to do.

    And it looks like that's Thor's normal hand in the previews art, so lets hope the one arm thing goes away.
    I am committed to the idea that any work of art should be judged on its own merit, not on the behavior or beliefs of its author.

    So Thor will fight Captain Glory in Empyre from what i heard? Well hopefully that fight ends as soon as it starts... personally dunno if Ronan is still around but i would like to see a fight between him and Thor more so.

    Ronan was mercy killed by Black Bolt in Death of the Inhumans after a rogue legion of Kree soldiers led by Vox turned him into a agonizing cyborg. Also i have no idea how would you make Ronan fight Thor since he hasn't being a villain since Annihilation.

    I appreciate the long hair. Very nordic! Plus I was sick of the Hemsworth look. Now...someone tell me he ditched the ridiculous Destroyer arm that Aaron has him in!
    Admiral of a fleet of shipsórelationships!
    Comicbooks are nothing to me without ships and romance!

    I agree 100%. It's not anything a good "Odin er Thorsleep" in the regeneration chamber can't fix.

    That sucks, probably should have brought him back in time for Empyre. I mean that really wouldn't be hard, we have hero fighting heroes all the time and from what we can tell this whole Empyre stuff can make up any excuse it wants to pit them against one another, pretty much all of the Kree and Skrulls are seemingly ok with attacking Earth from what we saw at the end of Incoming.

    But why would Hulkling help the Kree/Skrull alliance invade Earth?

    Well, Ronan may not be a cliche villain, but he's not exactly a hero

    He'll be back, and you can just have him and Thor clashing over a fugitive

    616 Ronan struck me as a Lawful Neutral enforcer, like Judge Dredd, who puts his homeworld at the top of his priorities, so it's easy to see him clashing with a Earth hero over a misunderstanding.

    Although i don't think Ronan is powerful enough to be a threat to Thor in a duel. Unless he has some backup and a plan.

    That wasn't the real Thanos but one of his Thanosi clones. The Thanosi were introduced by Jim Starlin in Infinity Abyss (2002) in order to retcon the appearances of Thanos in Ka-Zar Vol 4, Thor Vol 2, X-Man Annual #1998 and Avengers: Celestial Quest, as those stories didn't follow Thanos' character development at the end of the Infinity Gauntlet (Mark Waid, Dan Jurgens and Steve Englehart ignored that Thanos forsook nihilism at the end of Infinity Gauntlet #6 and helped Adam Warlock and other heroes save the universe on more than one occasion). Thanos realized that the most disturbing flaw to his clones was there intellectual deficiency, which usually ended with them settling for the most destructive answer to any problem. Sometimes there are characters that need a definitive ending with no more appearances. like manga characters, and Starlin's Thanos is one of them.


    I'm also not a fan of Hickman's Thanos. Hickman, Lemire and Cates take on the character has for the most part, rung particularly shallow as far a I'm concerned with Thanos being protrayed as a barbaric cosmic potentate and more or less reliant on brute force to get his points across as opposed to using his cunning and scientific resources, and we know that the brutish, rampaging villain is Mangog and Juggernaut's shtick, not Thanos. And Bendis use of him as a saturday morning cartoon villain with guns who can be punched by anyone, including Street level vigilantes, was pretty infuriating. The less said about Jason Aaron's regrettable goth-tinged Thanos Rising story the better.

    Well it was thanos in the original run, it was retconned later

    For no real good reason as I understand it

    I do think thanos since the gauntlet trilogy has been badly written and really shud be put to bed by marvel

    I feel the same way. I haven't read the actual issue yet, so maybe it reads better than it sounds.
