The Unworthy Thor, Odinson, Picks Up The Hammer – Or A Hammer

We have been waiting for this since Nick Fury whispered those words to Thor that saw him relinquish the hammer Mjolnir and his identity as the God Of Thunder. And then in Secret Wars, the hammer of Ultimate Thor was flung from one universe to another, waiting for him to pick it up.

And that’s just what he’s about to do.


Marvel PR has given iO9 the nod. The Unworthy Thor, by Jason Aaron and Olivier Coipel…

will follow the god’s escape and captivity—revealed to be at the hands of none other than cosmic archiver the Collector—and his journey to becoming a hero once more. But he’s not taking Jane’s place: Unworthy Thor is expressly a companion series to Mighty Thor. The Odinson is forging his own path, and will even wield his own hammer… one that actually has some pretty huge connections to the Pre-Secret Wars Marvel universe.

Two books for the price of… two! Jason says…

 How he will be referred to as far as we know right now, he’s given up being Thor. He gave that to Jane. Doesn’t want to be called that name. But we also know he’s on a quest to figure out who he is, without Mjolnir. And striving to become worthy again. So, you know this book really kicks off by him finding out— you know what, there’s another hammer out there— there’s another Mjolnir. It sets him off on the thing, so… is this it? Is this how he becomes worthy? How he becomes Thor again? That’s one of the big questions driving the book.
