Thor, meet Iron Man. Iron Man, meet Thor. Now touch gloves and come out fightin’!

Ever since it was discovered Tony Stark created Clor, readers have been speculating when Thor and Iron Man would come to blows. Looks like it is about to happen in the pages of Thor #3.

Take a look at the sneak peek Marvel sent Major Spoilers. Even though there isn’t dialogue, this looks like it is building to an awesome battle.

Pencils & 50/50 Cover by OLIVIER COIPEL
50/50 Cover by ED MCGUINNESS
Rated T+ …$2.99

During Civil War, Tony Stark and his allies produced a deadly clone of Thor, which not only ravaged many heroes, but killed the Avenger known as Goliath. Now that Thor has returned in earnest, it’s time for a reckoning with his former teammate and that means all out action! Featuring two covers—one by Copiel and one by superstar Ed McGuinness—and a confrontation that will move heaven, earth and Asgard, this is the issue of Thor you can’t miss!


Thor #3 will go on sale September 12 for $2.99.

    Apparently, a lack of ethics will bite you in the butt every time.

    I don’t think its a good idea to circle thor while talking. Also I do like the redesign on his costume.

    When did they make that thing on Iron Man’s chest the same shape as Superman’s insignia?

    And once again, I repeat my eternal refrain…. I hope [THOR] beats the living crap out of Tony Stark.

    Hulk. Thor. Spiderman. It’s a story arc that keeps on giving. I hope it lasts for decades, not unlike Henry Pym’s marital problems.

    “Hey we got nothing for next month’s issue. Let’s have someone beat the crap out of Tony Stark for Civil War.”
    “That was eight years ago, and we write for Howard the Duck.”
    “Howard could take him.”
    “I’ll get the coffee.”

    They should have Squirrel Girl beat the crap out of Stark. Then again, she has a pretty impressive track record against Marvel heavyweights.

    Don’t forget the She-Hulk owes him a legal ass whupping too. Can’t wait for the this year’s Marvel Christmas Special: It’s re-do on the Scrooge classic where Iron Man gets visited by three spirits: Captain America, Goliath, and…Wolverine…because he appears everywhere at the same time regardless of logic and continuity.

    I bet whoever wants to beat on Iron Man this week just fills out one of these cards.

    “Dear Iron Man

    I, __________________________, am coming to beat the ever-loving bajeezus out of you, for no apparent reason, and justify it by spouting something about the Civil War. Please, don’t try to run, and take your beatings like a man, otherwise, we’ll be forced to lose the little respect we had left for you, you person in a funky metal suit that changes almost as much as you change your underwear.

    If you need to re-schedual your ass-whooping, please send in Form 2153 and sign on both lines 3 and 5.

    Your Fellow Superhero,

    PS: You’re a dick. Why aren’t you dead yet?”

    I bet that’s how it would go.

    Haseo, I think every Marvel character has every right to hand Iron Man his arse.
