I wonder if they'll ever address Black Panther knowing the cure for cancer and withholding it from a fellow superhero.

They seem to be ignoring that these days though. I mean, when was the last time it was brought up?

I think Norman Osborne made a cure for cancer into a weapon to use against Deadpool, which was supposed to be a dig against that particular plot point from Hudlin's run.

How long ago did he drop that bombshell? It hasn't been since the reboot has it?

Well, it was definitely before all the universes were destroyed and remade in Secret Wars event. That seems like a good enough excuse to retcon out anything that hasn't been officially reestablished yet.

Or that time that Norman Osborn weaponised the cure for cancer.
I think it was in Deadpool/Thunderbolts Magnum Opus

Another Thor issue, another telling us nothing about Jane's ex-husband and son. Maybe Jason Aaron doesn't know they exist?

Kind of like Odin's characterization as a wise, crafty ruler. Or the likelihood that the powers and weapons of figures out of myth might be more effective than a few smug people with guns.

From: [personal profile] locuatico
he actually remembers the latter. these two agents were wise enough to take a Hulk-level gun. that being said, there was an actually pretty funny scene in which they DO threated to shoot Thor if she resisted arrest and she simply let Mjolnir deal with them and walks away.

That i am willing to accept as rules of dramatic tension requiring something be able to overcome Thor's seeming invulnerability.

My comment wasn't really about the Thor vs. agents conflict here, but about Roxxon's invasion/conquest attempts in the various Norse mythology dimensions. I mean, your average resident of Alfheim, Svartalfheim, or Jotunheim would be equivalent to a fairly powerful super hero or villain on earth.

The third books are inconsistent on that, even with simonson's. That being said, roxxon has been looking for mystical powers too.

Why exactly were they trying to arrest her, though? Without the registration act, she wouldn't be breaking any laws.

You must not have read the issue, because those weren't regular guns.

And Odin has always been a jerk.

I'm thinking more about Roxxon invading other dimensions than just this encounter.

Odin's always been stern, but prior to Fear Itself or so he was presented as both wise and ultimately benevolent.

The current head of Roxxon is a minotaur, i think they have things covered.

So what business did Shield have trying to arrest Jan, even if she was Thor?

It's Shield. Attacking heroes instead of villains is kinda what they do these days.

I am 99% sure they were specifically hand-picked to their position by Hill herself with NO input from anyone. It is the only way in which these two could be in the position they are in, despite being completely incompetent.

Except that they're not. They were 100% right about Jane, right about DD, they just have stupid priorities.

And you'd be wrong, this wasn't under Hill's. If you're going to trash sure, at least let it be on the things she's actually responsible for.

I still don't really get the whole "Mjolnir has a consciousness" thing. Like it's weird to have it as a thing which is only just now coming up.

I don't know, it certainly explains a lot, especially the fickle nature of who is or isn't worthy.

Except it's not exactly been fickle. Only a handful of people, Bill, Eric Masteron, Cap and Thor have been deemed worthy, out of countless people who've tried.

Not like say, Tony Stark's lifted it one minute and then Cage the next.

Miguel O'Hara lifted it too. Though that timeline might have been removed/altered now that he's stuck in the present.

Dunno. I'm not really the one to ask, as my current comics intake is limited to Marvel Unlimited (and the occasional digital purchase from Dark Horse store), which is pretty much always at least half a year behind when it even gets the particular series.

Except it has been fickle, there have been several times Cap couldn't lift Mjolnir and the Odinson has also been deemed unworthy at times.

The reverse is also true, with someone that had been deemed unworthy becoming worthy later.

Well, I liked this arc. The heroine moved the plot. Nobody took the victory away with a last page twist. etc.

She's still too ignorant, and worse ignorant about being ignorant, to meaningfully contribute to the story most of the time, though. (I almost yelled "THINK, JANE! THINK" at this series at points.)
