  1. I read this comic so I could properly appreciate your review and I have to ask, did Jason Aaron always write Thor as a selfish moron? All those years he kept his real self from Jane and he berates her?

    Why are they calling him Odinson? Suddenly Thor has a surname? Possession of the hammer gives a person Thor’s name as well as his power? And how is ‘be killed by cancer’ or ‘live with super powers’ a dilemma for ANYONE?

    This was terribly sad, what with the kids dying and Volstagg having to give up his brunch.

    1. Well, yes, Thor (I mean, Odinson) has been a bit self-involved over the years, and being deemed "unworthy" has not helped his disposition any.
