Marvel Comic Books Thor #4 Review

What’s going on guys, welcome to Comic Island, my name is joey and today, we are reviewing and recapping Thor issue 4. Wow this issue series has been great thus far. But I did find some flaws. So let’s discuss what I liked and didn’t liked about this issue series. the art is just beautiful and remains consistent with previous issue. This is a huge help and makes me feel like I’m back in the world that writer Jason Aaron has built. But as you guys may know, I am a fan boy of the story. So let’s take a closer look at how it is progressing. We got a great action scene between the two Thor’s. This issue did a great job on showing us how brash the Odinson is. And of course he redeems himself at the end by passing on the torch to this new Thor. Now this is one of my complaints: 4 issues in and we still don’t know the identity of this new Thor. The fact that she kisses him leads me to further believe that this is Jane foster. The other popular belief is that she could be Roz Solomon, that shield agent. But between the two, I still think it is Jane. We have ruled out his mother Freya and his sister Angela. It would be really uncomfortable if it was Angela and she kissed her brother. Ew. So I think that’s all the candidates for this new Thor. I can’t think of anyone else that she could be.

The one thing I didn’t expect was that the mother doesn’t know. I would have guessed that the all mother Freya told Jane foster to wield Mjolnir, but from this issue, the all mother doesn’t know who she is.

so like I said, we are 4 issues in and we still don’t know who this new Thor is yet. The great story telling is keeping my complaints to a minimum but I really hope we get the reveal in the next 2 or 3 issues.

Now let’s take a look at the scene with malekith teleporting away. please correct me if I’m wrong but is this the first time that we saw malekith’s followers looking like how they do in Thor 2 the movie? He is king of his realm but I don’t remember seeing his followers wear this kind of armour. This is another example of the comics being heavily influenced by the movies. Sometimes it’s done in a good way but in this scene, it was not done right in my opinion. I like to think that the cinematic universe is another universe and that I am reading the 616 universe. So things like this is a bit unnecessary. But that’s my opinion, what do you think? Please let me know in the comments below.

So near the end, we got malekith and Dario coming to an agreement. This doesn’t look good for our new lady Thor. In Thor god of thunder, we got excellent story telling. So if this issue series goes the same route, then im super excited for this new villain team up.

Dario Aggar and Malekith

Ok last thing I want to touch base on was the fact that the original Thor gave up his name to the new Thor. This is just weird. It doesn’t make sense to me. Thor is is first name. he can’t just give up his name lol. But he did it so I guess we are gunna be referring to this new wielder of the hammer as Thor. I never got into calling the falcon as captain America and I got the same feeling about this new Thor as well. but then later this year, marvel has stated that after the battle world event, the universe will be rebooted. I don’t know if this is an official statement or not but what does that mean for all of the crazy changes in the 616? Is this new Thor gunna disappear and we will get the original Thor back? Is falcon going to loose his captain America mantle? Right now I’m on the fence about this reboot but I will say this: If marvel continue to bring us epic story lines like the spider verse then I’ll remain happy lol.
