Odinson is reclaiming the mantle of Thor in an all-new renumbered Thor #1 launching on June 13. Long-time series writer Jason Aaron is continuing on with this title, welcoming in his Secret Wars: Weirdworld collaborator Mike Del Mundo.

“On the one hand, I still feel like I’m writing the same Thor story that began six years ago in the pages of Thor: God of Thunder #1. But at the same time, God of Thunder had a very different look and feel and focus than Jane Foster’s story,” Aaron said.

“And even though Thor Odinson is now reclaiming his mantle, this new volume will also be going in a very different direction. Thor has a completely new status-quo. Actually the entire landscape of his corner of the Marvel Universe has been changed in the wake of the ‘Death of the Mighty Thor’ arc in Mighty Thor. But there’s still a War of the Realms raging, and Thor isn’t looking to stand on the sidelines.”

In this new story-arc, Thor is tracking down various Asgardian artifacts that have been scattered across Earth - with long-time X-Men villain Juggernaut also looking to utilize those same artifacts.

“I’m super excited about this new journey!" said Del Mundo. "Working with Jason on Weirdworld was so much fun and badassery and I’m getting that same excitedness and feels with this new Thor series - with added thunder!”

I have been away a long time and decided to comment.
my take is that Marvel completely watered down Thor and also Odin to the point where Thor became a whinny child again and Odin an argumentative powerless ruler.

Odin being beaten to a pulp by this creature???? Did the writers even read previous Thor books? I stopped reading some time ago when they made substantive changes to Thor and Captain America.

I have no problem with a female character like Jane becoming a super hero or the Falcon. but Captain America was Steve Rogers (not a Hydra agent) and I collected all the way back to the 1940's.

Thor was Thor. Jane has to die for Thor to get his hammer and power's back? come on.

Odin created planets and could hold his own with any skyfather or a non watered down Galactus. I actually had a problem with he fought Thanos and Thanos didn't die immediately. He was watered down even then.

First Marvel took Thor's time traveling ability away a long time ago. Stupid. why didn't Odin simply replace it? Then the slowly watered down Thor's powers. Until the Superman/Thor clash in Avengers vs Justice League. Then they realized that Thor was too powered down to face Superman.

I know Marvel wanted new readers and fresh starts, but Thor and Galactus became the punching bags for any new character Marvel wanted to introduce.


I'll never understand Marvel's tendency to water down its characters.

so, wow! Thor gets his hammer back. big deal. That character has lost all respect now. didn't Thor defeat the Godkiller? how much more worthy does one have to be?

anyway, my take.

Also, for those that still think Superman could or should have beat the original Thor. remember, the Original Thor had the power to open dimensional gate ways and send superman to a realm with red suns. The hammer would have diagnosed Superman weakness pretty quickly (as in the old books) and sent red sun rays to him, etc. etc. and I like Superman, but come on.

sorry for the rant, but Marvel didn't and does not care about older readers and the collectability of their comics. The hurt collectability every time they kill off or ruin older characters.

Namor and the original human torch anyone????
