The new Avengers trailer makes much humor of the fact that not EVERYONE is worthy to lift the mighty croquet mallet of Thor.  Of course, one of those suspects has already brandished Mjolnir in the regular comic book continuity.  But which one?  Your Major Spoilers (retro) review of The Mighty Thor #390 awaits!

Major SpoilersQuestion Of The DayThor

From his very first appearance in ‘Journey Into Mystery’, Thor’s hammer has been enscribed with a verse that explains that ANYONE who would be worthy can life the hammer and possess the power of the Thunder God.  The occasions upon which this has happened are pretty rare though, even if you take into account the extended runs of Eric Masterson and Beta Ray Bill, and most importantly, there has been little explanation of what it truly MEANS to be worthy of the power.  Wonder Woman has shown herself to fit the bill, as have a couple of other heroes (more

This week heralds the beginning of the already-infamous Lady Thor story arch written by Jason Aaron and drawn by Russel Dauterman. I’m a lady, I read the issue first thing this morning and I have some opinions about it. First off, let’s go over the biases: I’m not a regular Thor reader, but I have a working knowledge of the characters, settings and recent events in the run and I thought the idea of Lady Thor was pandering. I feared that this issue, helmed by two male creators, could read as condescending and heavy-handed, rather than presented as an interesting

Is Marvel Studios the new Pixar? That’s the debate going on in several places around the Internet. A few months back, I expressed my concerns about Guardians of the Galaxy here in this column. I was concerned that, since the film didn’t contain any known characters, the movie would be the first release viewed as a “failure.” Could it draw the same amount as a film featuring Captain America or the Avengers? Well, that answer was provided this past weekend, and things are coming up roses for Marvel Studios.
