    If you've been reading Immortal Hulk, this is a great addition to the run. Thor makes a cameo in which he and Jen lift weights together. It's pretty funny, but they also have a pretty deep conversation about immortality. The whole scene lasts only a few pages, but Al Ewing has a knack for fitting a whole lot of character development and depth into a such a small space.

    The pairing of Thor and She-Hulk is one of the only valuable contributions Jason Aaron has made to Thor. This interaction between the two, along with their exchange in the Empyre aftermath, has me thinking Marvel will do more with this. I'm hoping a competent writer will explore their relationship some more. A writer like Al ^$&*#ing Ewing?!?! The guy has been on fire since Loki: Agent of Asgard. I really want to see him writing Thor some day.

I thought it was a good cameo. Thor's take on his battle with Galactus, who he considers an immortal by any definition, is that true immortality does not exist and that the 'immortals' will all eventually die. A rather unexpected bit of reflection from Thor regarding his own godhood.

As for whether Thor and She-Hulk make a good match, I don't really think so.

I believe Ewing wrote the story where the Shadow Gods are implied to be connected to the Beyonders. Yes, I'd like to see him write Thor at some point.
