Good slugfest issue, which shows a more vulnerable/human side to Thor than we usually get to see. 7/10

  Thor acting like a douche, there... kills a man then flies off without a word. Good job guy!

  There must have been 700 issues between this Thor and the previous one and it's impressive how things have changed. Thor used to be above the crowd and really enjoyable. Now, it's definitely under and I don't even know what they're trying to do with him anymore...

  The art in this is very rushed. Did not enjoy this issue much. Story was boring and i'm not happy about Jane Fosters return and Sifs reaction to it was a bit weird. However i am enjoying Hercules role in Thor over the last several comics. I hope the book improves though as it has been one of my favourites.

  Not bad, Thor seemed off somehow,but Hercules is always a treat.

  Three pages of filling a pot hole and "The First Man"? Really? Come on Marvel. I am liking this Krista chick. She has spunk.

  How is Jane Foster being in the hospital the "most unexpected character of all? She shows up once in a while, that's what Jane does. You want to do unexpected? Have Aunt May show up to go toe to toe with Thor for the heart of the lady Sif! Now THAT would be unexpected! And much more entertaining than watching Thor sit in a chair while Jane lays unconscious.
I am holding out hope that there is more to the story of Armak than we see here. Hopefully something to do with the Odin situation which has piqued my interest. Otherwise we just has a nobody with no character or backstory be possessed by a cave man--with no character or backstory, just to have him die an hour later. And that would be dumb.

  I wonder if Gerry was teeing up a Gwen ending for Jane, that got editorially nixed.
