Briefly...

1) Flash-foward: Norrin comes to the throne of the All-Father to see what Thor has witnessed in the wake of the journey that started with issue #1. Thus, this takes place after the final battle. Thor reflects on the events, then we go back to the battle that climaxed with issue #5.

2) Thor utterly trashes and kills Galactus, I guess for his betrayal and billion-year holocaust, and turns his corpse into a bomb that kills the Black Winter.

3) The Black Winter, before passing, shows Thor his fate / future, and it's Thanos wielding a version of Mjolnir with the Infinity Gems, and I guess the Power of Knull, the Symbiote God. Beings like the Sentry and the rest of the Marvel Universe appear to be undead or corrupted.

4) Flash back to the beginning of the issue: Thor has decorated his throne or the chamber which contains his throne with the helmet/head of Galactus (WTF??). Thor tells Norrin that he saw darkness and nothing more, keeping the vision he saw a secret.

Thoughts: Meh. I don't see how taking a staple of the Marvel Universe (Galactus), turning him into a chump, turning his origin inside out, humiliating him, then turning his corpse into a bomb serves the interest of anyone. Just seems like another gimmick, a la Aaron.

And beyond this, there wasn't much to the story. Another bite-sized and easily consumed snack without significant nutrition.



I just read this comic, it gives me mixed feelings.

On the one hand, I like that Thor uses the absorption powers of his hammer again, it reminds me of Jurgens' stage in that sense, as well as that he does not allow himself to be manipulated and has his own idea of how to solve the matter.

But another issue that I don´t like is the personality he has so far, unfortunately it reminds me too much of what Aaron did, Thor doesn´t kill if he can avoid it and he would not act like a loner, I hope that with the running of the numbers Cates begins to solve all this.
