Tomorrow sees the release of Thor #1 from Jason Aaron, Mike Del Mundo, Marco D’Alfonso, and Christian Ward. We ran an advance review right here.
We also ran this Major Spoiler article yesterday as a hidden non-social media non-front page article just for those who really wanted to search it out. And a few people did. But now the comic book is actually in comic book stores, we can be a little more open…
So. We said that this was something akin to the far-flung future Frank Castle’s appearance in Thanos as the Cosmic Ghost Rider. Taking a popular street-level superhero and reinventing him as a major cosmic figure in the Marvel Universe. And how the ending of Thor was Jason Aaron saying to Donny Cates, “hold my mead.”
So we have the far future Thor investigating something that may bring the universe to an end.
And he finds it.
Cosmic Wolverine Phoenix.
Speculators, you may start your engines now. And start lining up outside comic book stores for when they open tomorrow morning, so you can ask for 50 copies…
