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????
