perletwo: frog of thunder (frog of thunder)
[personal profile] perletwo posting in [community profile] scans_daily
When last we left our heroes, the Pet Avengers had assembled! to investigate the disappearance of Frog Thor from their psychic link, and learned he has exiled himself from his Central Park clan.

So where has Puddlegulp been all this time?


...over the Rainbow Bridge to Asgard, where Thor welcomes him as a brother.



"...seek them out," is the end of that sentence. In a page I've cut, we see a cloaked figure climbing the ridges of a snowy mountain. I had to include this next page because Throg is so Kermit-like here, and his little snowsuit is so cuuuuute:



*sigh* Attacked by the Yeti. But Frog Thor gives as good as he gets, to the delight of the Yeti, who finally says he hasn't had this much fun in ages! Yeti takes Throg back to his cave for yak and conversation:



Yeti is enveloped by a ball of light that he says has come so he can make his journey to the next plane. "Dost thou mean death?" Throg asks. Yeti begs for help, and Throg, "though my body is small, my will is great!" tries to hold him back. They're both pulled through the light....

....Into a realm of faeries, centaurs, unicorns and other mystical creatures which I really, really wish I could show you if the posting limits would allow me. (Anyone else? Anyone? We've still got 3 more pages before we hit a third of the issue!) The catch? They're all stampeding and yelling "RUN!" - from a big black beastie conjured by the ruler of the realm, which seems to be destroying the mythical creatures. Beastie zaps Yeti, who goes all red-eyed and rage-y, and another blast of light from Beastie knocks Frog Thor and Yeti back to the mountain--

--right at the paws of the Pet Avengers, just as we saw at the end of last issue, when Throg croaked "run." to his teammates. Who are game to take on a red-eyed, ragey Yeti for their friend. But!




So, in conclusion. We have a villain. We have a mission. We have the Power of Cute.

Have I mentioned lately that I love this series? Coz I do.

But didn't it turned out that most mystical monsters/creatures turend out to be aliens, like Fing-Fang-Foom? My God... what if they encounter him?

That's debatable, really. The MU has had so many 'explanations' for these sorts of things that it gets rather ridiculous. I mean, for instance, there's an alien who's supposed to be the explanation for the Medusa legend, but then there's the character of Medusa in the Inhumans who is also supposed to be connected to that somehow, and then you have the original, actual Medusa, who I'm sure has shown up at least once in those old horror comics that Marvel used to put out... It's a bit of a mess, really, and most writers address it by ignoring it, so it's unlikely to be straightened out anytime soon. (Anyway, while Fin-Fang-Foom is indeed an alien, there are at least two genuine dragons in the MU, so that particular species is well established.)

Ok, that's it. I'm buing this. I can tell your masters at Marvel that you got another one *grumbles*

What's with everyone calling him 'Frog Thor'? I thought his official title was 'Throg' now.
Also, I'm not quite sure that the Yeti's explanation makes sense. I mean, the power of belief, mythical creatures, yadda yadda yadda - all that's fine for HIM, but how does it apply to Throg? How can he be a 'mythical creature' if he's not part of a myth? I'll take the Yeti's word for it that the little guy has a similar 'spark' in him, but surely that only makes him mystical, not mythical?

I suppose it's possible. Still, there have been various other non-Thor people who've been allowed to lift the hammer, and none of THEM have been referred to as 'mythical'. Maybe it's just the fact that he's a talking frog...
