The fun part of this book was that I originally had developed some of the pitch as a mini-series around Crusher. Just around the time I was getting ready to pitch it to Marvel, editor Wil Moss came to me and said that since I have a background in science fiction and fantasy he was thinking about me for “Black Bolt.” I said, “It’s funny, because I have this back pocket pitch that I was going to send you.”

Then when we bounced these things off of each other they just immediately meshed. That’s where this story came from. So Crusher predates Black Bolt as far as Marvel characters I’ve wanted to write about. He’s a hero to me, even if he’s a villain.

This week Generations: The Unworthy Thor & The Mighty Thor came out. If you like Jason Aaron's Thor run (which stretches back to November 2012*) then Jason Aaron's enerations: The Unworthy Thor & The Mighty Thor is another issue of Jason Aaron's Thor. I enjoyed it immensely.

Unfortunately, the labelling makes it slightly confusing as to who actually appears.

While there is no doubt as to who is the Mighty Thor, the Unworthy Thor isn't who might first come to mind. A better term might be the Pre-Worthy Thor who has not yet proved himself worthy of wielding a Mjolnir, rather than the Post-Worthy Thor with the Uru arm, who lost Mjolnir and took up Jarnbjorn because Nick Fury whispered to him on the moon.

Generations is a decent self-contained story (but with a shoe-horned in epilogue that does nothing for me) about why a Thor needs Midgard and what it means to be a God and when Thor first met Thor )

About a month ago, I really wanted to post a scene from Uncanny Avengers where Thor and Wasp had to face Sentry ressurected as a horseman of death. Sadly, four pages have already been posted and the scene was way too long, so I scrapped it. However, after I was reminded of Fallen Son, I decided to post the last two pages of it anyway to feel better.

A new Marvel vs. Capcom: Infinite trailer, showing off the villain: Ultron Sigma, the fusion of Marvel's Ultron and Mega Man X's Sigma. He has a lightsabre.

Also a bunch of returning characters, including Strider Hiryu, Thor, Hawkeye and Chris Redfield.

Here's hoping for some X-Men characters.

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.

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?

Following the request for some upbeat What if...? stories, I submit this reposting from over 6 years ago (Good grief, I've been here a long time!!!)

The cover alone convinced me that this was likely to be an interesting alternate world! :D




At the end of the Asgardian Wars Loki gave the X-Men and New Mutants a choice, stay in Asgard and keep all that they had achieved there, all the new lives and new loves they had found, and in the case of Storm, powers returned to her, or return to Earth as they had been before they arrived; Storm would be powerless, Magma would be human instead of the elf-form the elven folk had curssed her with, and so on (The only exception he made, out of narrative necessity courtesy, was that Karma would NOT be returned to the grotesquely obese form her time under the control of the Shadow King had given her). The choice HAD to be unanimous though

Of course, in the mainstream MU, the choice to return to was made, but this IS a "What if...?"

"It was not Doc Doom and other villains at ground zero, just like it was not a young child crying for his fallen father. It was a representation...a symbol...a metaphor for real feelings and thoughts. It was, excuse the sugar-coating, JMS' and my heart and soul on those pages. I didn't ever cringe at the thought of those characters being in that spot. To me, it made sense. This kind of cowardly, unspeakable horror effects all of us...ALL OF US! I don't want to say..."Lighten Up"! I want everyone to concentrate on what happened on 9/11. Don't forget...Don't EVER forget!" -- John Romita Jr.
