Each of the one-shots took the concept in a somewhat different direction. The Thor one-shot is premised on the idea that most people in the Marvel Universe don't believe he's really a god. So, naturally, Thor comic books in the Marvel Universe are about a hero who uses technology to pretend to be a magic deity.
The story begins with Thor thwarting a gang of would-be muggers.
Thor flies back to his holographically disguised HQ, where his supporting cast is waiting. Team Thor is a three-person operation, as it turns out: 1) Don Jolson, a.k.a. Thor, 2) Uru, a woman who serves the Oracle/BATMAN BEYOND's Bruce Wayne role as the behind-the-scenes partner who monitors the hero from a computer, and 3) Owen Jolson, Don's father and the original Thor. There's also a surprise visitor on this day: Don's twin brother Len, back from a long absence.
Everyone's concerned because the Mjolnir technology's been acting wonky recently. It almost killed one of the muggers earlier.
The Destroyer goes after Thor, whose tech malfunctions as a result of the scrambler Len snuck onto the hammer. Still, he manages to triumph in the end and uncover his brother's treachery.
And, of course, there's a letter column.
