Two scans from Warriors Three #2. This is an awesome issue-- it has the story of how the three of them became friends, and their history with Fenris, which involves flashbacks with twentysomething Warriors Three and Thor. However, sharing that would definitely be more than four pages, so instead here is a scene that made me laugh out loud.

Man, the writer had to WORK for that one.

Worth it, though.

1. "We're binding him with science?" This child of the '80s is grateful for that.

2. Your icon of Little Thor riding Baby Ray Bill is awesome.

I like how Volstagg is riding a great big giant of a horse. It's a rather obvious detail, in retrospect, but it's one that hadn't occurred to me - maybe because I've never seen him on horseback before.

I'd have thought a beast sired by Sleipnir would be useful, what with eight legs to distribute the weight...

Oh, hell yeah. That would've been badass. Has Sleipner ever appeared in the MU?

From: [personal profile] nezchan
Even better, they're scaled to the riders. Lithe Falandrel rides the smallest, stout Volstagg rides the mightiest, and Hogun the Grim...his horse is juuuuuust right!

From: [personal profile] psychopathicus_rex
Actually, I think Fandral and Hogun's horses are the same size - it's just that perspective makes Fandral's look smaller, since he's the furthest away from the reader in most panels. There's no disguising, however, the fact that Volstagg's is enormous.

Does anyone else get the feeling Volstagg is based partially on Sir John Falstaff?

Plus the names are phonetically similar - vol sounds like fal, two Gs, two Fs...

It would make an interesting story to see Volstagg visit 1500s London and sit down for some ale and bread in a local inn, and have a young man leave that inn some hours later and go and talk to a tired-looking friend of his...

"Oy! Will! You awake?"

"Yes, what is it, Mister Kemp?"

"How's Henry the Fourth going?"

"Badly. Poor Prince Hal has no-one to speak to. Who's going to see a play about a Prince who just says his soliloquys to himself all the way through? I shall be ruined and poor Anne shall starve, oh misery, to be..."

"No, wait, I think I have the answer, Will...give yourself an hour for a drink, my treat...you have GOT to meet this guy..."

"Oh, very well..."

--- Three Hours Pass ---

The door flies open and our writer stumbles onto his desk, very excited and muttering 'Now how did he say his name was spelt?'...

Stan Lee has flat-out said that Falstaff was part of the inspiration for Volstagg.

Good to know, thanks. And Hogun based on Bronson! Very interesting.

Ah...for the days of well-read, cultured, classy writers like Stan The Man at the helm of flagship titles...I can't ever imagine Lee telling a fan to 'Go Fuck Yourself', on the internet or off.
