Issue Review
   March 15, 2016

The Loki we see here, written by Roy Thomas, is as good a villain as you'll ever see in a Marvel comic. His plotting and scheming, his insane devotion to his goals, makes him seem like a truly unstoppable foe. Great stuff. Lots of examples here of Odin being a dick. In many ways, this is the engine that drives the story. Odin inexplicably set events in motion long ago, without explaining himself, that have now caused Thor to lose his powers. Dick. He also refuses to communicate with his people as they ask for clarity here, preferring to sit and sulk. He is the one aspect of this strong issue that is difficult to take seriously. 8/10

  Roy, stop it, please, you are killing me here with this fake Thor business. Odin has hatched some dumbass plans, but this one may be the worst.

  Not good enough. This guy may have the power of thor, but he is not worthy.

  This is some contrived bullshit. This is a faux ragnarok. Shenanigans!!!!!

  Glad they gave Sif a good reason for going with Fake Thor.

Really don't like what Odin did with making a Thor image thingy. Very convenient that Sif was there. This copy idea makes me think I'm going to hate the resolution.

Fake Thor looks more like Thor than Thor does.
