But still, you mentioned a reset that jumpstarted a new series for Thor. Is a reset like a retcon? Are things changed significantly enough to equate? Or is a reset kinda like marvel's way of doing what DC does with their many retcons?
The "reset" happened because Thor used the Odin force to go back in time to prevent the events of the Reigning. That meant that everything that happened in that storyline effectively didn't happen.
Ret-cons take many shapes and forms. Timeline resets, the classic Starlin "it was a clone!" excuse etc etc. A ret-con is anything that changes an element of a previous storyline.
