It was two months after the same kind of thing'd been done in Doctor Strange.

It was The Mighty Thor #7, part two and the conclusion of " The Strongest Viking There Is ".

It was during Thor's second round with the titular dragon-blood-empowered pawn of Loki's.

The God of Mischief told the flashback to 896 A.D.



" The ground quaked for miles. The seas swelled and crashed. Thunder shook the skies all over the world. "



The battle and the story flew onto land.



The battle concluded, Thor's opponent punched through the Earth and Loki having vanished in a cloud of spite.

The story concluded too, in the present day.

Loki took who he'd been telling the tale to- Dario Agger of Roxxon- to a cave with a dragon.

Soldiers of Roxxon killed the dragon.



(Dario's doing this because he wants insurance in his dealings with the accursed Malekith.)



(The concept of a corporate-backed church using Asgardian imagery is an amusing 2099 echo.

Flashback art and colors're Rafa Garrés. Present day art's Russell Dauterman, present day colors're Matthew Wilson.)

Comic Book Limbo, probably.

We need Loki to be Thor's antagonist. She humanises them and reminds of stories involving a better Loki.

Kinda Spoilers:

Loki is actually a double-agent. He pretended he betrayed Asgard as a gambit to earn the trust of Malekith and his council but also to stop Freya's revolution since they could not afford it because of Malekith's plan of a war in the near future.

Personally, i think issues #6 and #7 are the worst issues of Aaron's run. It feels like they did not have enough material for two issues and had to stretch it.
Also, I am sure Garrés is a fine artist, but this looks just awful.
That being said, I would like to see the origin of that picture.

That's my feeling about the whole of Aaron's Thor run. Most arcs are stretched out (or fillered) to fill at least 1,5 as many pages than needed. :/ (By this point I just want his mythic arc to end already. I don't even hope for a satisfying conclusion, that illusion I lost 10+ issues ago.)

I usually do not have that problem with this series, but maybe that's because I really like Dauterman's art.
