Post-Ragnarok, and post Thor #700, I've been on a mission to re-read Jason Aaron's Thor. Last night I got up to the end of God of Thunder, with the God Butcher/God Bomb storyline and the start of Malekith the Accursed's* war of realms and the beginning of Roxxon's pillaging of the ten realms' natural resources. That still leaves me with all of Thor, Thors, Mighty Thor and Unworthy Thor to read.

I found at the end of God of Thunder #25 a preview of the future of the series, as Thor became Unworthy (in Original Sin. Should I bother with Original Sin?)

*Malekith the Accursed? Malekith the fucking prick, more like.
**Did Rip Hunter's Blackboard in 52 originate this?

'It’s a brand new 50-page story, through the course of which we’ll check in with all sorts of different corners of the Marvel Universe where we’ll see different things brewing with different characters. Many of those elements will then spread out into the assorted individual Legacy story arcs in the different books.' - Tom Brevoort

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?

"That was a conversation in the room. Something that was absolutely talked about was should [the Fantastic Four] die? I had absolutely zero interest in telling that story. Because it runs completely contrary to everything that I feel about that franchise and everything that I feel about those characters." - Jonathan Hickman

With the Deadpool movie coming out on Friday, I thought I'd post one of my favorite Deadpool moments. And it doesn't involve him being all that funny or crazy. It is from UNCANNY X-FORCE #5, and shows that Wade Wilson has something resembling a conscience.

"I absolutely believe that people are looking for immersive content. The deep dive.

"So, to take something current for example, when the first issue of Secret Wars came out, there was a ton of chatter about how it wasn't accessible and it was the wrong way to start an event and people would 'tune out' -- and when the second issue came out, that it should have been the first issue because it was more accessible. Which is fine, but I disagreed because I wanted to convert the casual reader of one story into invested readers of the much bigger thing I had been doing.

"This has turned out to be correct as digital and trade sales of my earlier Avengers books have spiked as a result." - Jonathan Hickman
