The Mighty Thor #6 wordless preview

Newsarama has the wordless preview of the conclusion to the Galactus Seed story arc.

No words are needed. Just... DAMN!

Make mine MARVEL!

Love the cinematic climate and viewpoint of this - the "wide angle" shot with the clouds and Galactus casting colors and shadows, the silhouettes of Thor and Sif in the foreground as dust picks up. You can feel the energy charge in the air and the wind being pushed back by the display of power.

Wait, the Destroyer Armor can hijack Mjiolnir!?

Depends who is inside the armour I suppose

Though as Odin is the one who cast the "Only the one who is worthy" spell, I don't see why he can't suspend it (as he did in JL/Avengers when Superman got to carry it briefly)

As I recall, the Destroyer Armor was originally designed to attempt to repel the Fourth Host of Celestials, it's actually designed to absorb EVERYTHING within Asgard in a last ditch attempt to stop them. The first time Odin entered it, it killed everyone in Asgard for power and still lost to The One Above All

Holy shit. So it was their attempt to fight capital G God. That is pretty cool.

Basically. It follows that it would at least have a chance against Galactus under those auspices, although it's always a little unclear as to who among the upper rung of the Cosmic Marvel hierarchy. The Celestials are at least on par with Galactus, and possibly much more powerful, and the Skyfathers who build The Destroyer at least thought it had a chance.

Then again, hopefully Odin isn't prepared to sacrifice himself and everyone in Asgard and Broxton to win this contest, so maybe not.

Maybe the Earthmother Goddesses will save the day again?

Everything involved with Asgard will be at worst a little awesome won't it?

My impression (I don't think they've ever fought) is that Galactus is strongr than a celestial... But that there's a whole bunch of them, and only One Galactus.

One Above All of the Celestias is *probably* not the same One Above All who is, essentially, God (boss of the Living Tribunal, etc.)

The head honcho of the Celestials was titled "The One Above All," but I think it was actually Arishem and a handful of others from the Fourth Host that melted the Destroyer down with Odin and all the Asgardians inside.

I don't recall capital G God appearing in a Marvel comic except that one issue of Fantastic Four.

I really, really want to know who has been placed in the Destroyer Armor.
