"Thor/Loki: Blood Brothers": What If the Bad Guy Wins and Then Won't Shut Up?

“What if the bad guy won?” is a common “what-if?” scenario played out in superhero comic books. Unfortunately, the answer provided by Marvel’s Thor/Loki: Blood Brothers to that question is that people end up talking. A lot. In simple-minded platitudes repeated over and over and over and over. And then once more for good measure. […]

Reading Room: Top 5 Reasons Why Walt Simonson's "Thor" Rules All Midgard

One idea we had for Thor Week was a Reading Room blog entry documenting the top 5 Marvel Comics Thor stories worth checking out. The only problem is that I hit the original Stan & Jack comics (Jack’s sci-fi/fantasy Asgard is really something to behold), and then the Walt Simonson run on Thor…and that was […]

"Thor: Tales of Asgard" - Mighty Adventure Worth the Wait

And here we are…the last Marvel direct-to-video animated feature for the time being. Well, actually, that’s not 100% true. While Thor: Tales of Asgard is the final animated film released in the eight-picture Marvel Animation/Lionsgate Entertainment deal, it is not the last one produced. This is the seventh production, with last year’s Planet Hulk the […]

"Thor: Tales of Asgard': I Was a Teenage Thunder God

Thor is a hot property right now, and it’s about freakin’ time if you ask me. He’s been a Marvel Comics heavy-hitter since he was created (well, adapted, from Norse myth) by Stan Lee and Jack Kirby back in the 60s, but he hasn’t seen a whole lot of play outside comics until recently. But […]

You know the Mighty Thor; imposing, hammer swinging, beardless, blond-haired, talks with sort of a fake Shakespearean accent and says “I say thee nay!” a lot. Thor is … Wait a minute, Shakespeare? Beardless? Isn’t Thor […]
