The Mighty Thor #22 Review by (August 19, 2017)
Comments: First appearance of Sindr, Queen of Muspelheim, daughter of Surtur who was killed in THE MIGHTY THOR (2011 series) #21. Russell Dauterman and Matthew Wilson did the map on page 1; Veronica Gandini and Rain Beredo shared the coloring duties.

Review: Wow, another apocalyptic tale from Aaron with blazing art by Schiti and the colorists, featuring a frightening new villain in Queen Sindr. Not a lot to say as they are setting up the death of Thor not many issues hence. And I think I will miss Jane Thor.

The Mighty Thor #22 Synopsis by Peter Silvestro

In Muspelheim, Queen Sindr confers with her allies Malekith and Loki, making it clear the three do not trust or respect one another. Suddenly, the previously unheard sound of thunder rolls across the skies and rain comes to Muspelheim for the first time in living memory. The fearsome weather heralds the coming of Volstagg the War Thor and he joins in battle with the fiery queen (as Malekith and Loki decide to head back to Svartalfheim). Her powers are mighty and she overwhelms him in flames, hurling him to the fire-breathing sharks. But Thor defeats the sharks but still cannot master her—and then the female Thor arrives. J-Thor demands that Sindr release V-Thor but the War Thor refuses to go until he has extracted vengeance for the elf children killed in his care. He overwhelms the land with a storm, endangering a fire goblin child. Jane rescues the child then teleports Volstagg to the Void where he can do no harm. He considers her a traitor for rescuing the demons and she calls him a false Thor for trying to kill children. He attacks her and she defends herself....
