Greetings True Believers!

This book continues to knock it out of the park.

Odin vs. Galactus, the continuing adventures of Li'Loki and Pastor Mike!


Odin and the big G are going at it and Odin decides he's had enough.

That's right, Odin just HEADBUTTED Galactus, Destroyer of Worlds. Metal!

Meanwhile as the SS collects Thor and Sif, Odin and Galactus fall to Earth and Volstagg gathers the Brigade of Realms to face Pastor Mike. Loki is up to something.

Loki steals the Galactus Seed from the Destroyer armor and goes to the World Tree root.

Mmmh, when was the last time Loki uttered those words?

The Surfer tries to convince Galactus to leave as Odin enters the Odinsleep from his wounds but G is determined to have that seed.

Volstagg and PM face off but are interrupted by the arrival of Galactus. Pastor Mike is astonished and Volstagg explains what Galactus is.

PM: "What am I seeing?"

V: "That thing is the plague of worlds, small friend of Jesus. A kind of parasite that feasts on planets. Unstoppable. Unknowable. Insatiable. Much like myself, were I to--"

PM "It's a man?"

V: "Maybe once he was like a man. But more of a force of nature than anything. A god of oblivion."

PM: "That's enough, then. If he was a man once...that's enough."

He starts marching toward Galactus. A towns-person warns him away.

PM: "Of course it's terrifying. And I am terrified. But I am not worried. I have heard the Good News and Christ is in my heart.""

Pastor Mike has some stones. Not much sense but stones.

Headbuttin' Galactus FUCK YEAH! :D I gotta wonder if that means there's something under that "helmet" of his. Sure makes it look that way, hence Odin's awed exclamation.

Lil'Loki continues to be great.

As for the Pastor, it's one thing to be all confrontational with Volstagg, but if you're looking at Galactus (and shouldn't he know what Galactus is? His first arrival on Earth should be public knowledge, right?) and you walk towards it thinking it's God, then you seriously need to check yourself.

I'm pretty sure Galactus's visits should be common knowledge, unless Xavier wiped them from everyone's memories.

I feel it does make an amusing callback (I think that's the proper term) to Lee when he created Big G:
"My inspirations were the fact that I had to make sales. And I had to come up with characters that were no longer stereotypes. ...I had to get something new. And ... for some reason, I went to the Bible. And I came up with Galactus. And there I was in front of this tremendous figure, who I knew very well, because I always felt him, and I certainly couldn't treat him the same way that I would any ordinary mortal ... and of course the Silver Surfer is the fallen angel. ...[T]hey were figures that have never been used before in comics. They were above mythic figures, and of course, they were the first gods"
"Galactus in actuality is a sort of god. He is beyond reproach, beyond anyone's opinion. In a way he is kind of a Zeus, who fathered Hercules. He is his own legend, and of course, he and the Silver Surfer are sort of modern legends, and they are designed that way."

Well, pastor Mike and Bronxton is a bit out of the way, so they probably have the luxury of not being aware when Galactus makes the scene (since he usually shows up in NY).

No, that's just it... Pastor Mike was just told Galactus was once a Man. So he's going to walk up to him and start talking to him about sparing the Earth, in the Lord's Name.

And if he dies? His soul is saved anyway, so he's not afraid.

They've shown Galactus's real face at least once that I can think of. In a issue of Hercules back in the 80s where Herc spikes Galactus' drink.

Odin used HEADBUTT! It's not very effective

I think Marvel has demonstrated that no one, even a God, gets into a fight with G and expects to win.

Well... maybe Squirrel Girl.

While funny, I do wonder what's going to happen when Galactus is questioned and/or praised by the Pastor.

hmmm i don't like Pastor mike... but yes those are stones...

Date: 2011-08-31 10:32 pm (UTC)
From: [personal profile] darkknightjrk
I'm thinking that these are two different schemes--Mighty Thor has Loki doing something to stop Galactus, and Journey is Loki trying to stop Fear Itself.

Pastor Mike just went from being yet another in a long line of bs uncharitable portrayals of Christians in comics to one of my favorite characters in one line. Hope he doesn't spoil it next issue.

From: [personal profile] perletwo
OK, I only just got around to tracking down a copy of Mighty Thor #4, and even with this post, I remain...unenlightened. What the Hel is going on with Kelda and these Mad Desert Women? Do we have any idea?

(Yes, I know, Loki gave them a lock of hair and they gave him the thready thing and instructions. But, but, who are they? What are they? Why does it have to be my Kelda?! *sniffles*)

Can I ask how Odin is even fighting Galactus? I was under the impression that galactus was far more powerful than any individual Skyfather.

Well, Odin didn't beat him, he just stalled him with the most awesome headbutt in history. I think that's well within the powers of the Nordic/Germanic All-Father.

Tiny Loki is too cute for words. I know other stuff happened, but that's the bit I consider to be the most important here, I'm afraid.
