After years of honing the tragedy and intrigue of the Son of Odin, Stan and Jack hit a stride that would produce the most mythic tales in all of Marveldom. Beginning with a pair of irredeemable uglies, Replicus and the Super-Skrull, the adventure then takes itself up a Norse notch when the evil Loki conspires to have Thor stripped of his power and vanquished to Earth! Stranded there, he must struggle to survive the machinations of his scheming half-brother, while attemping to regain the graces of All-Father Odin.
Last, but not least: Enter one of the most beloved baddies in all of the Asgardian entourage—The Wrecker! The decidedly mortal Thor must battle to his very last breath against this crowbar-wielding wingnut, who himself is powered with Asgardian might! And we’ll warn you now, the last note is a tragic one as Thor faces his ladylove, Sif—in the body of the undefeatable Destroyer!

Cover by KYLE HOTZ

With great power …comes great opportunity.
Nineteen-year-old Parker Robbins couldn’t afford college, but he was able to buy a ski mask and a Lorcin .380 handgun. After dropping out of high school, he hoped to follow in the footsteps of his late father, a soldier in the Kingpin’s vast criminal empire — but life in the mob isn’t always as glamorous as the movies make it seem. With a pregnant girlfriend, a demanding mistress and an institutionalized mother to care for, Parker can barely make ends meet. So when the small-time crook finds mystical apparel that grants him strange powers, he elects to forgo organized crime … for the more prestigious and financially rewarding world of costumed villainy.

    Just Had a Thought: We now know who M & Siryn’s “Stalker” in X-Factor #17 was. Reason I know, is that he’s got the same cloak and hands.

You know you have something to say, say it in the comment section
