Issue #149, The Mighty Thor (Feb. 1968)
The Mighty Thor “When Falls A Hero!”
Thundering!Thursday, Emo!Thor Enthusiasts!
It’s shaping up to be a really long day so far. Aside from several projects I’ve got simmering on the backburner, there’s still the gym to hit, writing to be done, Batstravaganza pt. 2 to get posted, and later tonight, Conan 3D to see.
On the good side, the local Starbucks Barista knows my order well enough to tell me “Your usual this morning, Snarkstress?” when I drove up. I may never have been much of a Starbucks fan (they’re conveniently consistent in a city where every few blocks is another hit-or-miss coffee stand) but I *am* a fan of great customer service and that’s exactly what I get out of her. Yay!
That, and those damned Red Velvet Whoopie Pies. So. Addictive. Just sayin’.
But you’re not here to read my coffee-sploits!
When last we left our hero, he was duking it out with Enhanced!Wrecker all over the city, essentially getting his godly ass handed to him since he’s still powerless thanks to Daddy!Odin’s temper tantrum. Wrecker, on the other hand, has powers courtesy of a case of mistaken identity by the Norn!Queen thinking he was Loki.
Naturally, Emo!Thor has a problem with being laughed at:
Unfortunately for Thor, that little temper display took a lot out of him, leaving him weakened:
Enhanced!Wrecker proceeds to smack him around some more, leaving him a crumpled heap before moving on to bigger and better things:
Meanwhile, on Asgard, Sexay!Sif and Brave!Balder look on in horror as their beloved Thor is used up and cast aside like a wet rag. They decide to try to appeal to Odin’s reason once more (although I honestly don’t know why they keep trying) and the second they leave the chamber:
Back on Midgard, Triumphant!Wrecker continues his spree, NY’s finest continue to attempt to thwart him, and they CONTINUE to be reminded that they suck. Emo!Thor, not long down, reappears from the fringes, determined as all get out to take Wrecker down:
Unfortunately for Thor:
When the smoke clears, Emo!Thor is nowhere to be seen, and while Wrecker is distracted:
Baaaack in Asgard, Daddy!Odin continues on his supremely dickish train of thought, finally agreeing to take a gander at the crystal when Sif finally hits her knees to implore him. Unfortunately:
They quickly surmise that only one person would be so crass as to steal their viewing crystal, and Balder steps up, offering to go into the Norn!Forest after Evil!Loki. Sif chimes in with her desire to go, despite the peril, and Daddy!Odin relents:
Back on Earth, the battle rages on, and Wrecker has the upper hand yet again:
Emo!Thor again regains his feet, and this time, Bored!Wrecker tries a different tactic:
So embarrassed by the licking comment, Emo!Thor calls on his last vestiges of strength to get himself OUT of the incredibly uncomfortable (in more ways than one) situation:
He manages to shove off the bulldozer and deliver his OWN brand of Asgardian justice:
Unfortunately, no matter how insane our hero goes on Wrecker, there’s still the little issue of his godly powers being gone. So, fight though he may, all it takes in a swipe from Wrecker’s crowbar and we’re back to square one:
Back on Asgard, Sif and Balder make their way to the Norn!Forest to face Evil!Loki, despite Balder’s protestations about a certain someonegoing with him:
Back on earth, Wrecker finally manages to dig through the rubble:
Until next week!
