  Lame isn't Dr. Blake, but Stan's plot, the guy is supposed to have been closed in his office for 4 hours??? Won't he stop for lunch before attending the fisrt patient??

  Another home run for Thor, god of thunder! Also, Loki's a real dick, as usual.

Odin needs to calm his ass down before snapping to judgements. I thought he was all knowing and all wise?

  Loki looked pretty bada**when he transformed, as did Hyde wearing the gas mask. Sadly those two things were the only good points about this one

  Loki uses human agents again, because that always goes so well for him. And as usual, the villains go for the hostage immediately. I can't wait for the more epic Thor storylines.

  I like to always think (i.e. pretend in order to make up for poor characterization or plotting) that Odin is NOT being a total off the cuff butthead, but rather in his all-wisdom is playing a longer game than is apparent to us mere mortals. The Tales of Asgard story in this issue even has Odin losing a battle so as to foster a kind of growth for Rivvak the (Now) Fearless. So all the times Odin is banishing and taking Loki at his word? He's actually just playing out some long, all wise scheme.

Loved the Tales of Asgard in this, both story and art. Jack's art was spot on the whole issue.

I guess Don Blake is a researcher in the mornings and has office hours in the afternoon. You'd think Jane would find it odd how slowly his research goes! He does about what, two minutes of shuffling test tubes when he's supposed to have been working for hours? Perks of being the boss, I guess.

Main story is nothing special, but for some reason, for me, it just came together. Could be just a reaction to having read 4 terrible Tales to Astonish in a row. God, I love (Gi)Ant Man, but his solo tales are the butt end of the Marvel Age. Strange Tales Torch stories are Shakespeare by comparison.

  -@Cosmic: Very prescient of you! You'll get some contrived and mildly satisfying information about the inner workings of Odin and his motivations, starting at around Thor #290. I just read it!

  this was actually a really solid thor until the stupid last page

  I really liked how they addressed how these villains got out of prison. Most of the time their lame explanations just don't make sense to me.

  I like when Loki reveals himself to Cobra and Hyde...looked powerful.
Jane near death added a tiny bit of suspense to this comic. Unfortunately I just don't like Hyde or Cobra.
Did I miss something in Tales of Asgard story..? In what way did Odin's retreat help mankind..?!?

  3 stars for more Asgardian tomfoolery!

Splash - Nice image of Thor on top of the building.

God Of Pizzazz - @marvelcomicslover: I agree, that is a awesome image of Loki! I, also like his green suits in human guise.

Dim Witted - Hyde wonders how going after Jane will hurt Thor...I guess he still doesn't get the whole lame Dr. Blake flash of light Thor display!

Downsized - On page 6, panel 1 lame Dr. Blake's office building has shrunk!

Reality TV - Man, the Kardashians ain't got nothing on the Asgardians!!!

Rocky Horror - I wonder if Thor had to do the whole Time Warp dance to get it to work?

'Nuff Said - "Never! I admit nothing!"-Loki

  Ok, how did Hyde get caught? The last Thor issue with him, he transformed to his alter ego and escaped while the Cobra was captured. There's no consistency to most of these stories. That aside, I rated this 4 stars because the story was good so far and Stan didn't rush to make this a 1 issue cluster fudge.

  1. Page 4 panel 2 is epic
2. I am always struck by how dumb Odin is and by how much of an arbitrary***he is
3. Heimdall is one of my favorites and the battle on page 9 is sweet
4. The art in this book is fantastic. Kirby is really feeling it
5. Uh-oh Thors power inflation index is approaching critical with this time vortex nonesense.
6. Very good Thor issue

  This was a pretty good story, with great artwork on Kirby's part and a fast-paced narrative taking us from Earth to Asgard and back again, and some great action with a tense scenario at the end... until the lame ending where Thor stops time until the next issue. What a let-down!

I figured they were setting us up for Thor having to turn back into Don Blake to save Jane or something like that.

Oh well... I forgive them for the ending because the rest of it was so cool. Loved the artwork, especially the city vistas, Thor's sweeping flights, the fighting hordes of Asgard, and Loki's awesome reveal before Hyde and Cobra.

  Too bad Odin can't pass an unalterable edict for Loki not to cause mischief (pg.4).

Heimdall is awesome.

Oddly enough, I enjoyed this issue. Actually looking forward to the conclusion.

Tales: Was confusing, to say the least.

  Odin is kind of a jerk to Thor. Then in the Tales of Asgard feature, he uses the old "I meant to do that" routine.

  • That’s my line – “… I cannot pinpoint the exact location of the menace which is lying in wait… And yet I can feel its presence as a mortal can feel the sting of a summer storm!” (Thor) – This is by far the most clever comparison Stan has used up until now. When we’re used to cardboard and straws, I’d say this here is a big improvement in his writing style!

  • Whenever I see the Cobra and/or Mr Hyde featured on a Thor comic, I feel like I really want to skip it. Then my OCD takes over and I have to suffer the utter disappointment again! I need therapy!

  • Each time I see Cobra slithering down a wall, I wish he’d quickly ooze down and fall on his face!

  • I cannot believe Odin has left Loki escape Asgard…. AGAIN! Well, as a matter of fact, I can. The All-Father is a total idiot when Thor's love life or Loki is involved!

  • I like that there finally is a plausible reason for Loki not to reveal Thor’s mortal identity.

  • Somebody, somewhere, will eventually find suspicious these strange flashes of light coming from Dr. Blake’s window, right?

  • Thor’s hammer once more features another convenient and nonsensical power! Ugh!

  • Thor is totally badass in this story, defeating every Asgardian on his way to confront Loki. Gotta love it! To my surprise, this story wasn’t as disappointing despite the villains I just love to hate and Kirby’s job made me add a star to the score, so 4 it is.

  Thor fighting his way through Heimdall and all the soldiers of Asgard was the definite highlight of this issue. Minus one star for the lame time warp bit at the end.
