    Default Thor: God of Thunder #9 *Spoilers*

    REVIEW it, or be GONE, you haggard, lazy, knaives!

    Bah!!

    Still no review?! Very well, I'll give you all my Viking's measure of this tale by Aaron of yore - GOOD!

    Now read it!

    That Aaron managed to balance the three Thors going up against Gorr was impressive. It will be interesting to see where things go from here.

    Don't want to get into details until other folks have had a chance to get caught up.

    At this point I think Gorr is the only one that can defeat Gorr which is probably what is going to happen.

    The only thing better than a Thor is three Thors.

    I'm curious to see how they will manage to get a win out of this one.
    That's right! Al Gore invented the internet, let's all go kick his ass!

    I got your inconvenient truth right here, motherf*&%!

    This comic was so good that I didn't feel like reading anything else yesterday.

    Something I didn't understand was that future Thor said he had waited 900 years to apparently use the Odin-force (or Thor force) again (I'm assuming what he hit Gorr that sent him light years away was the Odin/Thor force).

    Why did he have to wait so long to use it?

    Earlier in the arc he said that it was depleted long ago. Simply gone.

    He used it now because he began to feel it returning.

    Obviously this is a convenient solution because if he had the Odinforce (Thorforce), Gorr wouldn't be much of a threat. Look what just a small taste of the Odinforce did to him.

    Of course, that's a problem for the whole storyline, since it's not like there aren't other gods even just on Earth who are a close match for Odin with the full Odinforce, like Zeus and some of the other Skyfathers... so how did Gorr beat all of those guys if a small taste of the Odinforce was such a problem? And is he just going after planetary gods like the Asgardians and Olympians, just from all over the universe, or other entities that are considered or worshipped as gods as well, like the Celestials, Death, the Proemials, and so on? And you'll note that they're shying away from showing, say, the Hindu pantheon slaughtered, let alone Yahweh and son, which is probably wise.

    Still love the series, of course.

    I was half expecting to find pages and pages of praise here already. I think I read this issues 5 times since last night. Just ... damn. Great art; great scenes (Young Thor riding a space shark); raining hammers; and that splash page. Just ... damn.

    One thing I was wondering about as I read this: do Thor's granddaughters get slaughtered? Aaron in the letter's page hints we'll see them again at some later date (in a different timeline?) but as I was reading this, it seemed like those gals, and Skinny Volstag and all the rest where just taken out.

    Anyone using the AR app? Mine's not working (or mosre likely my phone is on the fritz). Curious if anyone used it for the panel showing the sun going black with Gorr blood...
