Previous Post


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.

It wasn't even a fight, Captain America with just his shield and wits would have been written giving Thor more of a fight than Galactus. Bear in mind this Galactus had recently consumed 5 giant planets. This should've been Galactus in Celestial busting mode. I am a big Thor fan, one of the biggest, but this was bad/lazy writing. I have no idea why Thor was able to take the power cosmic away from Galactus.

I wanted Thor to have some good showings after everything the previous writer put the character through but this was an over correction. There has to be a balance between Thor being whipping boy and the other end of the spectrum where he looks ready to take on The Living Tribunal.

On a side note, I don't know about you guys but I'm starting to have Thanos Fatigue.
