    Well if you haven't watched the video above or revisited those issues in the last couple of years I would point out that we are no longer in Simonson continuity and haven't been for quite a long...

    Well given some of us have been theorising and arguing over whether Odin has got his full power since the very beginning of Thor #1 I am naturally invested in the answer.

    It is potentially the...

    So you are a ‘fictional authoritarian’. The way I think of it this move in recent comics is a reaction to both sides of the current political divide in the US. Both sides are accused of not being...

    Do you really think this is about lack of belief? I read this as being about finding her faith in Thor. Recognising that despite everything she has always held a faith in the god that she met way...

    My theory. By Jane lifting it, and the wording on the enchantment changing, she allows The Mother of Storms to also wield it herself. She is partly released from her imprisonment and is indeed worthy...

    See my more detailed explanation above. As is always the problem with Aaron's Thor, he gets quite deep without appearing to do so. I was trying to point out that I don't believe the Odinforce can be...

    This is how I perceive Odin’s political and by extension magical situation. The reason Freyja is right (t-shirt maybe) and the reason Odin appears weaker.

    In Thor #9 & 10 (2011) The All-Mother,...

    How exactly would it be a retcon? This was a story being told by a narrator. He is 'telling lies to children' making the story simple and not going into details. We have good reason to believe that...

    The doctor clearly suggests that if she transforms back she will die. That does hint that it is viable to remain Thor, but that strikes me as a very tricky thing to do in the circumstances. Can she...

    There are significant differences. This is not being used to spur Jane into action. This is being used to make her reflect upon her beliefs and her faith. That isn't 'tragedy fodder' that is thematic...

    Because when Thor gained it he effectively had to do the 'hanging from the tree' thing that Odin does in the myth. And I believe this was called out at the time as reenactment of the deed of Odin....
