    People want nothing more than to see Bova of Wundergore kick, ass utter free in outer space without hurting her role as MU

    Heck, when you really think about it, there are already other Thor clones out there.

    The Replicoid is probably still gone, but with its power, who's to really say for sure...
    Nobilus is probably still in a High Evolutionary lab. Still tainted by Loki?
    We have to presume the Worldengine destroyed all of those Thor clones. Or do we?
    And what ever really became of Magus' Thor doppelganger? Hmm?

    The real reason behind Beta Ray Bill's popularity is... the winged helm and horse face make everybody think of My Little Pony pegasi and instantly fall in love with him!

    Which brings me to the subject...why are fans so enamored with this guy? Is he original in any way shape or form? No...he's exactly like Thor (you know, the star of the book). W. Simonson created an ALIEN GOAT version of Thor and called him....wait for it (snicker..haha)....Bill. Surprisingly people were like "wow this guys so cool! So original..what a concept! The Thor comic really needed a god-like persona with a magic hammer. And Bill...what a name! Love it!"
    Somebody please tell me exactly what the appeal of this Bill the Goat God is?
    Exactly. Agreed entirely with this post. Not sure where Simonson was coming from on this one. Betting there was something semi-humorous behind this creatures creation.

    According to Simonson, he began the design by coming up with a monster "bad guy," then turned the concept on its head. Bill's head is not just a horse's head design. It's a horse's skull design. So, he basically looks like an undead horse. Not so humourous, no.

    I don't want to see him in the movie because I'm not interested in seeing the same story I read in the comics.
    Yea he was only great and only made sense in the Simonson run. That's where it starts and ends with him. I actually think giving him a horse face was a bad decision for the character having a longer life cause nobody will want to read a lead character looking like Sara Jessica Parker.

    Only thing really dreadfully sketchy about Bill is his spaceship. "Skuttlebutt?" Really?!?! What, "Rumormyll" was taken? Does he keep it docked at the Tabloid space station?

    I happen to think the horse-skull-face is a great boon. Horses are quite significant in Norse myth already, and Marvel's Asgard has always had a hefty sci-fi element. Alien horse-man with Thor powers is just a perfect fit.

    Posting here since this seems to function as a catch-all BRB thread. I just read Stormbreaker and Godhunter, and I have some questions I hope y'all can answer for me:
    * Does Beta Ray Bill appear in other things between those two minis that would explain his change in perspective/circumstances? At the end of Stormbreaker he's on earth and walking around looking like a dead homeless man, and the meta-orb with the rest of the Korbinites has been disappeared by some unseen godlike being. At the beginning of Godhunter, BRB goes after Galactus because he blames him for the death of all the Korbinites (even though the status of the meta-orb is still unknown?) and no longer looks like the dead human.

    * Was Godhunter collected anywhere? Marvel Unlimited doesn't have the last issue, and neither does Comixology.

    * Does Beta Ray Bill acquire his girlfriend Ti Tasha Ra by the end of Godhunter, or does that happen at some other time? (I know her from the Sif JiM.)

    Thanks much!

    As far as I remember, female Korbinite was given to Bill as a present from Galactus, so he wouldn't be the last of his kind. Godhunter was collected in a tpb, along with another episode starring Beta Ray Bill - Secret Invasion Aftermath: the Green of Eden, but it is oop :/

    Ah, okay. I found a copy on Amazon for more than I'm willing to pay, alas. Maybe I'll stumble across that issue #3 sometime.

    He's a horse-headed alien with a Thor type hammer. Named Bill. Next easy question?

    I'm still ticked that Simon Walters has been just erased, apparently. Oh well.
