I bought some back issues quite a while ago. I remember the one that I got had Thor almost killing Beta Ray. I'm mostly interested in this because I know that Thanos and Odin face-off. The story seems cool (Thor going all-out.), but the art seems pretty hard to get past. What issue did him and The Super-Skrull have their fight? Didn't this whole thing get tied to Odin in the end? This sounds really epic, and it was by Jim Starlin, but it's not considered a classic. From what I read, opinion was kind of divided on it. Are there any standout Issues? Thanks.

It is very uneven with little payoff so I would say pass on it. The arc ranged across a number of titles (Thor, Silver Surfer, Infinity Watch and a couple of others I think) so the art ranges from good to awful. Whoever the artist on Thor at the time was particularly bad.

The notion of Thor going bad and getting the power gem was an intriguing one but it never paid off. He never cuts loose with it. There are some cool moments to be sure, but most don't involve Thor. The Odin v Thanos battle would probably top the list.

If you're bored and can get it cheap it isn't the worse read in the world but nothing worth tracking down.
