Well as many of you know, I am a fan of the Mighty Thor (I have an affinity for Storm gods, must be a lightning thing I guess) Anyway, I have been faithfully reading the new Thor series, it started off slowly, but I have stuck with it.
Even with the change of Thor’s costume (which usually doesn’t bode well) I followed along, and yesterday, I got my monies worth!!
Back in that seriously agitating “Marvel Civil War” series Among the many arrogant and stupid things Tony Stark did was making a clone of the Mighty Thor (this clone eventually killed Black Goliath, the clone itself was later killed by Hercules).
Anyway, Iron Man’s side eventually “wins” this Civil War, and the Marvel Universe becomes a weird type of Police State for super heroes with the heroes having to register in the new Super Hero Registration Act; however, some heroes go underground.
***Spoilers Begin here: Do not proceed if you have not read Thor #3***
Well, the real Thor is dead during all of this, and returns to the world of the living shortly afterwards. He sets up a New Asgard over some property he bought in Nebraska, and sets out to find his fellow Asgardians. His search leads him to Louisiana (New Orleans) where he finds Heimdell, but before the reunion, “Iron Man” shows up to “lay down the law” to Thor (BIG MISTAKE TONY).
Iron Man goes on his registration spiel, Thor doesn’t even acknowledge the fool. Then Iron Man asks Thor if he will comply. Thor replies in classic Thor fashion. Lightning starts reigning down and Thor delivers a classic speech where he tells Iron Man that it was insult enough that he hunted down and killed those that they have both worked with for this “registration act”, but he went further and stole his genetic code.
Stupid arse Iron Man replies: “All right, I can see you’re upset by this, but your don’t know the full story here Thor…” When he gets hit by Thor so hard he flies in the air and crashes through an abandoned house:
Then the fool decides to RUSH Thor “Old School” style, and rushes right into the BEAT DOWN Of the year (aside from Black Adam and the horseman Death that is, with Black Bolt and Iron Man’s beat down by the Hulk a close third).
That’s when we get THIS speech (classic): “Give your orders and ultimatums to those who choose to obey, or are too cowardly to fight. NOT ME…Or learn the difference between a god of Thunder and a mortal man in a metal suit!!”
Thor is the MAN!!
