Issue #147, The Mighty Thor (Dec. 1967)
The Mighty Thor “The Wrath of Odin!”
Thundering!Thursday, Emo!Thor Enthusiasts! Again.
I won’t bore you with more exposition here…I know you’re just dying to find out what the heck is going on with our hero! (I will note, however, that this wasn’t too bad of a way to make it up to you guys, considering we’ll be starting with 1968 next week!)
When last we left Emo!Thor, he was being shot at by some guards, while attempting to make off with a giant golden bull statue. Of course, our hero wasn’t acting of his own volition, but you know how cops are: shoot first and ask questions later. Emo!Thor, sorely vexed by this entire debacle, tries to set things right:
The guards quickly surround him, mouthing platitudes about how that last minute cooperation will make things easier on him, etc. Emo!Thor is a bit surprised:
Surprisingly, Princess!Python speaks up in his defense:
But, see, she isn’t just trying to defend her sweet!baboo:
So the madcap crew ditches Thor, leaving our hero to contend with the police while they go gallivanting off into their magic mystery mobile:
The police cart off our hapless Emo!Thor, who is DEEP in his Emo!Funk right now, because woe unto the fallen Thunder God:
After being miranda’d, and waiving his call to an attorney, they get on with the “locking Thor in prison” part, but before they do:
Speaking of the green one and his prison, Limbo!Loki is having a weird moment:
He finds himself in Daddy!Odin’s throne room:
Seems like Loki’s free to roam the universe again, but there is ONE caveat:
Balder and Sif, upon seeing Free!Loki are surprised all to hell, and Sexay!Sif refusesto keep her womanly opinion to herself:
Daddy!Odin takes offense at Sif questioning his reasoning:
Balder escorts the incredibly (and with good reason) distraught Sif away, while Free!Loki bows and scrapes his way out of the throne room. And within 30 seconds of his departure:
He magics himself to earth, scaring the hell out of some bums chillaxing in an alleyway:
Meanwhile, in a cheerful prison cell:
His cellmate is just itching for a fight it seems:
That seems to snap our hero out of his emo!funk rather fast:
The prison guard waves a gun at Thor, who, immediately contrite, puts the bully back down and finds out that someone has posted his bail! He is free to go!
Driving through traffic, Wary!Thor starts getting a little…worried:
Not one to be dissuaded, and being overwhelmed by a BAD FEELING:
The illusionary!car disappears in a poof of light, and Revealed!Loki gives the customary Asgardian greeting:
Aaaaand…The fight is TOTALLY ON!
They pause momentarily for Thor to catch his breath because he is WINDED:
The two duke it out through the streets of New York, taking out buildings, signs, and various other landmarks:
Exhausted!Thor rallies, swinging as he comes back full bore, but it doesn’t last long:
Before RAWR!LOKI can finish him off, Sif and Balder arrive to even the playing field!
Of course, what they don’t realize…
What will happen? We’ll find out next week!
~Go Team Thor!
