Tales of Midgard or the Warriors Three take a bite out of the Big Apple

Greetings True Believers!

Walter Simonson's run of The Mighty Thor is just perfect. The Warriors Three are a big part of that perfection.

The Asgardians have just defeated Surtur and saved the Nine Realms. Time to head home? Odin's Stones, no! Volstagg, Hogun and Fandral hit the streets for some errands and Midgard fun!

They, in the words of Carl from ATHF, "Don't need instructions to know how to rock!"

Plus a scene from the cute flirtation that Beta Ray Bill and Sif had around that time.

Dr. Blake's staff have seen him in months and they get a visitor.

Later, the W3 take in the NY sights.

Their crawl continues and they run into a certain pack....

Oh, guys. Never stop being you.

Now a scene from Bill and Sif's wanderings. I know Thor and Sif have the whole immortal love thing going for them but Seta is almost too cute.

Plus I'm tracking down an old issue of Power Pack written by Louise Simonson that features the PP/W3 on an adventure! I will be posting that.

I <3 the Warriors 3, I remember when I got slightly upset that they weren't in Norse Mythology but now I just think that Stan and Jack are so awesome for coming up which such characters. Also Warriors 3 doing shenanigans in Midgard is always enjoyable to read.

Speaking of reading, I've been reading The Ballad of Beta Ray Bill and Bill/Sif just grew on me and rapidly became one of my favorite ships. Combined with Thor and Bill's epic broship and the three of them kicking ass together I think I just gained a new OT3 (I want fics!).

I'm such a newbie to Thor but with Mighty Avenger, Journey Into Mystery, and what [personal profile] proteus_lives posts I'm rapidly catching up and buying things!

A mighty run of awesomeness indeed! (Fandral quoting poets is one thing, but I'd never have pegged Volstagg for a Lewis Carrol fan, though I suppose he might have found it good bedtime story reading for his kids)

Nice cameo by the Power kids, though Jack's not blond, and frankly Hogun comes across as ever so slightly creepy rather than scary in that scene.

I would've loved a story of Volstagg taking his family shopping.

God only knows if FAO Schwarz could handle the Lion of Asgard's pride...

I hope you do find that Power Pack issue, as it (along with these scenes) lead into this Simonson loveliness:

Notice Fandral is looking right at the pretty blonde in scan 3 when he says he'd like to "study the locals"

I forgot about Sif and Bill. Poor Thor, how can you compete with a guy who's hung like a horse?

Seeing how casual everyone is with this whole thing, as all as the issue were Herc actual acts humble for kid, compared to issues of the last decade made think: Have we as a society have become too cynical, or is it the writers trying too hard make government look oppressive? Most of the heroes don't seem to have simple joys or fun as they use to, except for Spider-Man after that... you get the idea... I think that's why people like the comic relief characters like Deadpool and Valgstagg better, because they're having fun, they do what they do and such...

Who else thinks that the Warriors Three could shoulder their own film?

Love, love, love this-- thanks for posting!

I have another "Warriors Three in NYC" story to post at some point. Just waiting to get my scanner working...

accepting a lay-off notice and severance pay would be much easier if Fandral gave it.

I spot a Tempest quote and a George C. Scott movie title drop. (Reasonably sure this was before the advent of Linnell and Flansburgh.)
