    I don't know, but ever since he returned, I've really disliked the character. He seems borderline sociopath, at least in some stories. Different writers seem to have written him as more sympathetic and loving towards Thor and Loki, but how has he evolved? I haven't read the majority of the Silver Age stories, but he did seem like kind of a jerk in those stories, too. He did seem to genuinely love Thor, though. I guess that it depends on the writer. He seemed pretty noble under Simonson. Thanks.


 This is true for  any character. If the writer likes the character then that character will receive good treatment, but when the writer has a known disdain for a character than they will be a jerk. I can say this is not the character that Stan and Jack created.




You  are correct this  version  of  Thor,Odin,  and all  things Asgard  have no relevance  to the  pre-8th  universe.  I expect that is true of all the  Marvel  universe .   This new version will  play out its  hand until  the next  reset  which  is unfortunate because it sucks rotten lemons.  I think  Marvel and  D.C.  are  using the four to five year template  and maybe they are right in that the old way of  numbering is antiquated  resulting  in  new #1s  with  higher sales in the short run  then  do it all again.  That  is the only  way it makes any sense  but  that doesn't  make it  any more  palatable.
