    I would say it is out of character to a point but not really in fiction totally. He was afraid to die in myth, it is why he sought to avert Ragnarok. To save his own skin and some of the other gods.

    I do agree that this is out of place but Odin has always done unlikable things. It just depends on how much. He has replaced Thor several times. Sometimes for good reason.

    But this is not unique to Aaron per se. At least not with Odin being a jerk. Him being afraid is new. Although this Mangog does seem like he is insanely powerful. Keep in mind that this iteration of Odin has faced off with various cosmic powers before and apparently had a relationship with the PF, or at least somebody using it, before.

    Odin REPRESENTS (the Leftist Myth of) the PATRIARCHY. The days of the benevolent white male authority figure are long gone. Put out to pasture by Leftist Writers such as Aaron.

    Agreed, From what I can see in the way Aaron writes, he has a certain disdain for men and anything of power. He has clearly humiliated the Asgardain men and the tile hero is a whimpering baby with no arm, no hammer, no clothes and no name. Wow.

IMO, there seems merit in BOTH those sides w/the portrayal of Odin here. But the common factor is frustration. He's been a zoundsworthy annoying enigma (ie.crappy king) since he banned his whole kingdom. Putting defiant Odin on the cover like that was a dumb tease too.

As for Jane, as solicits suggest she isn't done so it makes sense that she should show up as Thor again against Mangog. This 'intervention' was overdue and neatly included some reader friendly chronology fitting; it was good to see Sam and Stephen. However, it felt a bit... abrupt that she would just conceed -if not GIVE UP- to their arguments at this time after all her do or die character building this entire run. A moment of weakness? Interesting the Odinson could stay Mjolnir from doing whatever it wanted to do, go whereever it wanted to go. Maybe it was empathizing with Jane before her final decision - or was it still an undecided Jane guiding it?

Nice art. \:\) Poor Heimdal. \:\( Solomon keeps propsworthy pizza peddling alive in the MU. ;\)
