The Mighty Thor, Volume 4: The War Thor Reviews

  • The Red Panda

    Just... smegging... awesome.

  • Tom

    Jane Foster is the Thor I want my daughter to grow up knowing. Thank you, Jason Aaron.

    I feel like I’ve been waiting forever to get my hands on the newest volume of Mighty Thor (kind of wish I was reading them by issue now, to be honest). I’ve read all of Jason Aaron’s Thor up until now, and plan on continuing to do so for as long as he continues writing for it (and I’ll probably read whoever does Thor next as well, because of course). Out of all of the versions of Thor I’ve read, I think Jason Aaron’s have been among my favorites. I adore Mighty Thor, and I love what they’ve don

    I feel like I’ve been waiting forever to get my hands on the newest volume of Mighty Thor (kind of wish I was reading them by issue now, to be honest). I’ve read all of Jason Aaron’s Thor up until now, and plan on continuing to do so for as long as he continues writing for it (and I’ll probably read whoever does Thor next as well, because of course). Out of all of the versions of Thor I’ve read, I think Jason Aaron’s have been among my favorites. I adore Mighty Thor, and I love what they’ve done with Unworthy Thor. He’s brought the character to whole new levels that I had never anticipated, and I can’t get enough of it.

    This volume of Mighty Thor contains four issues in the current plot, as well as a single issue of Generations: The Unworthy Thor & The Mighty Thor. Pretty much every Marvel series that has/had multiple people as the same hero got a “Generations” story (Captain Marvel and Captain Mar-Vell, Ms. Marvel and Captain Marvel, Spider-Man and Spider-Man, Iron Man and Ironheart, etc). Despite the somewhat gimmicky nature, they’re actually pretty decent to read, if nothing else to see all the different characters get a chance to interact in unanticipated ways.

    The identity of the War Thor was surprising. Good clash between Jane vs War and some drama involving the original Thor as well. The story by Jason Aaron is very good but I am not sure the artwork is completely up to the task of illustrating this epic clash. After Dauterman anything is a let down, he returns for the next arc.

    A chapter by chapter outline of what happened in this trade collection that introduced yet another hammer wielder.

    #20 - The War Thor revealed! The War Thor, the new bearer of the alternate Mjolnir that survived the destruction of its universe, the one who will fight the War of Realms!

    I can't shake the feeling of the Doctor Who vibe; John Hurt's War Doctor, anyone? This Thor exists to fight a war and that is the reason the other Mjolnir called to its new bearer.

    I can't shake the feeling of the Doctor Who vibe; John Hurt's War Doctor, anyone? This Thor exists to fight a war and that is the reason the other Mjolnir called to its new bearer.

    In a single moment, one that proved pivotal for the new hammer-bearer, Aaron reminds his readers that war is truly hell.

    #21 - Valerio Schiti takes over from Russell Dauterman on this story arc. He has a very strong Stuart Immonen influence going, as he illustrate a rampaging War Thor invading Muspelheim all by his lonesome.

    If there is one thing that Aaron knows how to write, it's war, especially the uncompromising side where innocents get caught in the middle of it all.

    #22 - Thor versus War Thor! Plus the old, dispossessed Thor makes an appearance, it's War of Thors!

    If this arc has one theme, it's the ugliness of war, it taints the living with survivors guilt, and a dying rage that demands to be quenched with blood.

    #23 - Jane finally revealed her secret to Odinson, and though he may be upset, it was milder than I expected.

    Generations: The Unworthy Thor & The Mighty Thor - Thor meets a younger Odinson, and lot of cool stuff that happened to mark this milestone.

    - A clever way to integrate the classic Kirby designed costume into current continuity. It's designed as Asgardian formal wear.

    - A return to old Egypt and a rematch with an old adversary, this time, Aaron gets to pen a Thor-Apocalypse brawl that Rick Remender did in Uncanny Avengers #6.

    - A subtle and cool Walt Simonson and frog Thor reference near the end.

    The Ultimate Thor's hammer finally reaches

    hands and turns them into... The War Thor.

    After the previous volume, I was ready to drop Jason Aaron's Thor series because I was just not feeling it anymore. But then I found out that his story is coming to an end soon, and this fourth volume is supposed to be the penultimate one. Naturally, my inner completist couldn't resist. Unlike the previous

    The Ultimate Thor's hammer finally reaches

    hands and turns them into... The War Thor.

    After the previous volume, I was ready to drop Jason Aaron's Thor series because I was just not feeling it anymore. But then I found out that his story is coming to an end soon, and this fourth volume is supposed to be the penultimate one. Naturally, my inner completist couldn't resist. Unlike the previous

    , this volume wasn't bad, but for a book that was supposed to set the stage for the final act of the story it felt like a surprisingly unimportant bottle episode. So a certain character sees something upsetting, then accidentally finds the Ultimate Thor's hammer and becomes the War Thor. Then he fights the actual Thor for a while because he has all that rage. That's the entire story, and it's decidedly mediocre.

    There were some moments of levity and fun, plus yet another flashback to Odinson's earlier years, but really nothing we haven't seen before in this run. This volume is also a major bummer, because not a single issue goes by without Jane Foster mentioning that she's

    from

    , in case you forgot. No, comic, I didn't. I am just as bummed by that fact as you are, and I don't know why you're putting her through this instead of solving the entire thing with Asgardian magic and Pym particles. Look, I know this is the entire thing behind Jane Foster's Thor, but people die from cancer in real life every day, and it's sad and unfair and awful. Why do we have to go through this in a comic full of gods, magicians and superheroes is beyond me.

    It's sad to see Jason Aaron's otherwise spectacular Thor run going out on such a low note. I really hope that the series will redeem itself with the final book, just like Aaron's Doctor Strange did. More than that, I hope that Jason Aaron would ease off a bit and maybe take a break after writing so many Marvel comics for so many years. His writing feels so burned out lately, like he's lost his unique creative voice. This volume could have been written by any half-decent writer, and that's just not the level of quality I expect from such a talented creator.

    Again some parts that really feel like filler. Art is always very cool, but some of the plot sith War Thor feels like it wasnt that important to the main story arc. I think the next Vol is the last in the story so I'll prob read it when its out just to just to finish the story. Still very emotional with Janes battle

    Things take a turn for the grimdark as Volstagg--boastful veteran of thousands of years of bloody viking battles- has a civilian death horrify him into taking up the mantle of War Thor. This didn't work when Marvel turned Speedball into Penance, and it doesn't work here. Although the "Give my regards to Thunderstrike" line was great.

    Aaron used to be one of my favorite writers but lately he's been burying the plot under piles of posturing. There are endless pages of Surtur's villainous monologing

    Aaron used to be one of my favorite writers but lately he's been burying the plot under piles of posturing. There are endless pages of Surtur's villainous monologing but we only get to see the aftermath of Jane revealing herself to Thor as the new hammer bearer. Who accuses her of taking Mjolnir to get back at him. For cheating on her.

    WTF?
