Dario Agger of Roxxon was attacked by the Exterminatrix and the Silver Samurai.

They overpowered him and took him away.

Thor and SHIELD agent Roz Solomon arrived at the scene after the fact.

They left together to figure out what was going on, as it was going on.

In the Antarctic, Roxxon staff were going through their doomsday scenario.

As the corporation was under attack, so were they.

Security staff handed a gun to everyone who could hold one and set themselves up against the doors, preparing themselves for the attacker coming down to them.

(The second Silver Samurai's suit: built successfully with coolness in mind.)

Mjolnir, having found the Roxxon base Thor was looking for, returned to her hand as she was coming down.

The Samurai readied himself, informing his partner that he'd be a little late.

" What is it, Shin? What's happening? "

" Nothing I can't handle. "

(" Sailor Moon? "

" I could have done better with that one. ")

" .. isn't acting alone. "

(On the one hand, someone previously seen as a Wolverine/X-Men foe keeping pace with Thor seems a bit much.

On the other hand, he is a martial artist in bleeding-edge power armor, and he gets a Mjolniring in the next couple of pages.)

"Mjolniring" is my new favorite word.

"I'm like Iron Man. If Iron Man was cool and knew Karate and carried a bad ass sword."

Who talks like this? This just sounds like a middle aged man trying to write a young person.

Yeah, aren't you glad Jason Aaron killed off the original Silver Samurai so so we could this cool new replacement?

As far as clich├ęs go, I'd say it's an improvement.

He may have started out as a cliche, but he did become a more fully-formed character later on.

Yeah, even if that armor is made of adamantium there's still a regular person inside it, not a super-tough Ultron robot. And Thor's lighting bolts have handily overloaded Iron Man armor in the past.

And in this issue of the Mighty Thor Jane managed the herculean feat of moving the plot of her own book (with some help but I don't begrudge her for that)... in the last arc this happened her agency (and victory) was removed by a last page twist and she got demoted to object from subject for the rest of the book's run.

Yeah. I want to like this book but at the end of the day can't... I like the characters, I like the ideas, I like the story in theory... but I find the execution frustrating and infuriating.

I dunno man, have you ever read classic Thor?? That happened to him all the time, too.

Yes. I've. And I freely admit that I think Thor is generally the least interesting part of a Thor comic.

I would be less salty about this series if that first victory wasn't the only one she managed to achieve (until the twist) for almost 2 years now. She is getting into fights in almost every issue... in which her enemies let her win for one reason or another. So she never achieves any meaningful victory and the plot stalls.

And that's when she is allowed to be more in her book than a plot device ("She is a mystery I must solve!"; "She is an intruder I must destroy"; "She is a symbol I must protect"), because at that point she could be replaced by the worthy coathanger. :/

Nice jab about the Civil Wars they seem to have on a regular basis!

I forgot the new Silver Samurai was even around.
