      You had me with you, and still do for the most part. Until you praised Jason Aaron, EVERYTHING about his writing is trash. Self fulfilling prophecies, Especially in such a contrived manner as his, isn't amazing.... it's predictable.
      Much like Chris Yost laughing at what a beating Thor takes from Hulk in HIS OWN animated movie. Like he was a spectator seeing it for the fist time and was caught completely off guard. A comic laughing for 10 minutes at a joke he told.
      He's attempted to alter Thor's history to an extent it calls into question all that Thor has ever done.  His writing and everything attached to it has been trash, from Day ONE!!!!


    Yup. TGoT was a snooze fest from go. We Thor fans at the time Aaron started were so starved for a good representation that we swallowed the frosting and didn't realize there wasn't any cake underneath. When you get right down to it, TGoT was rehashed works done piss  poorly because Aaron is a hack writer who relies on shock/gimmick and bait and switch (Jane).

I agree with you here partially.  Yes we were starved for good representation  swallowing the frosting ( I know I did!) because the title was off to a good start.  No writer had ever wrote and brought together Thor from 3-different time-lines into one story.  While the story itself was lengthy, it was original and epic.  The art was also fantastic. 

Everything looked to be so promising after the Galactus storyline, my mouth was salivating of the future stories to come.

What a waste......all this time since then, wasted over on yet another , clone Thor story that served no purpose.  Unworthy Thor has yet to show any redeeming promise because it was poorly conceived and executed from the onset.  

Aaron chose to fight the masses to promote Jane to the point he crossed the line and disrespected canon with no middle or endgame to build Thor's character without Mjolnir.  

Now the only question remains is, will Aaron continue on the book after the Mangog story concludes?    Has anyone heard anything?
