When Marvel’s mighty God of Thunder known as Thor disappeared while saving Asgard from Ragnarok, fans clamored for his return and this July their wish is granted in the brand new ongoing series Thor. Featuring scripts by award-winning scribe J. Michael Straczynski (Amazing Spider-Man) and rich, detailed art by superstar Olivier Coipel (House of M), this new ongoing series brings back Thor to the Marvel Universe—no clones, no robots, because this is the real deal!

What happened to Thor after Ragnarok? Who was the man that picked up the mighty hammer known as Mjolnir? And what about that little skirmish known as Civil War? The Marvel Universe isn’t the same place Thor left and when he returns, he might not be the same either!

It’s the return of Dr. Donald Blake, the return of Thor and the return of…well, we can’t give it all away, can we? Featuring covers by both Olivier Coipel and Michael Turner, this red-hot issue is the perfect jumping-on point for fans new & old. You know where Thor’s been, but you’ll never guess where he’s going!


Thor #1 arrives July 5 for $2.99.

  1. If Marvel really, really wanted to give the public what they wanted, I highly recommend they consider my major cross-over idea: “Let’s Kick The Crap out of Tony Stark.” Think about it:

    THOR….Kicks the Crap Out of Tony Stark.”
    THE HULK….Kicks the Crap Out of Tony Stark.”
    SPIDER-MAN….Kicks the Crap Out of Tony Stark.”
    THE THUNDERBOLTS….Kicks the Crap Out of Tony Stark.”

    It writes itself, doesn’t it?

  2. Spider-Man has already kicked the crap out of the Tony Stark, She-Hulk did it on behalf of her cousin, Thor undoubtedly wants to add a few dents to his armor, but the Thunderbolts? Maybe the real Thunderbolts, but most people want to see the current Thunderbolts team get their arses kicked around just as much as Stark’s.

  3. And after “Let’s Kick The Crap out of Tony Stark.”, we have the special one-shot “Tony Stark: The Aftermath”, with the story of a defeated and crippled ex-super”hero”, iron dictator wannabe.

    And he must have this line while talking to his former allies/slaves:
    “Why y’all look like you’ve seen a ghost? It’s me, dear friends – alive and kicking! Well, alive, anyway. We may have lost the war, but heaven knows we haven’t lost our sense of humor! No, not even when we’ve lost a lung, a spleen, a bladder, two legs, thirty-five feet of small intestine, and our ability to reproduce!”

    Almost forgot, good preview.

  4. I personally find the idea of the current Thunderbolts turning on Stark rather appropro and satisfying, actually. It’s actually quite logical – he’s armed, abetted and sanctioned a group of convicted killers for the sake of “justice”. What better turn would there be?

  5. I can see what Thunderbolts vs Iron man would be. Same thing Deaths head II did in What if, and Longshot did in Exiles. Stab him in the face through his eye piece. Granted He seems to have actual armour over hsi eyes these days.
