"Kingpin isn't like the other villains in a lot of ways. Guys like Red Skull and Thanos are monsters and there is only so much time you can spend with a monster. But Kingpin is really only slightly off from being a hero. He has all the makings of a Spider-Man type really. He is smart, overcame adversity, he's passionate, driven, and gifted. The problem is his moral compass is a bit off. He is self-serving, sure, but he really cares about the city and he wants to be a force of good for it. He is just willing to cross lines that shouldn't be crossed to get there. So when it comes time to go further into who the Kingpin is, we don't need to change that. He's not a monster. He's a man who contains a lot of contradictions. He thinks he will end up being judged on the right side of history. Only time will tell." -- Matthew Rosenberg

Unworthy Thor #4 is a bit of a jam issue, with art by Jason Aaron''s stalwarts Frazier Irving (Kid Thor), Olivier Coipel (Modern Thor), Russell Dauterman (Unworthy Thor) and Esad Ribic (Worthy Thor).

It's a bloody gorgeous book that develops a bit more of character and mythology while the story (Unworthy Thor, trapped on along with Asgard by the Collector fights to get Ultimate Thor's hammer before Proxima Midnight and Black Swan can claim it for Thanos) crawls along at a glacial pace. We're still no closer to finding out why Thor is Unworthy (a mystery dating back to August 2014), but it's still quite lush. I'm hoping to goodness that we'll find out when Unworthy Thor wraps up with the next issue.
Thor and Jane discuss worthiness )

Outside of Hicktastic Four, has there been a recent long Marvel run as consistently good as Jason Aaron's God of Thunder/Thor/Thors/Mighty Thor/Unworthy Thor?
