Synopsis / Summary / Plot

The Unworthy Thor #3 Synopsis by Peter Silvestro

Once again, Thor Odinson escapes from his cell aboard the Collector's ship, struggling to reach the enchanted hammer of his ultimate counterpart. Once again, he broods over his unworthiness, imagining Odin and Gorr the God Butcher taunting him. Once again he is recaptured and chained in his cell....

In his cell, he makes the acquaintance of his neighbor, Loki's Hel-hound Thori, also a possession of the Collector. Thor bursts his bonds once more and tries to escape his cell, when Beta Ray Bill, having escaped his own cell and recovered his hammer Stormbreaker, takes down the guards. Bill frees Thor and mentions the other hammer he spied and Thor's mind is overcome by jealousy and he flies into a berserker rage, seeing Bill as a rival and wanting the hammer all to himself....

A mystery ship docks with the Collector's ship and the visitors kill the crewmen who come to inspect it. They are Thanos' agents Black Swan and Proxima Midnight with the mysterious cloaked figure who requested a boon of the conqueror. They follow the trail of the hammer and come upon the Odinson and Beta Ray Bill fighting over Stormbreaker; Proxima tries to seize the hammer but the cloaked figure stops her (while trying to shield his identity from Thor) and leads them to their real quarry. They confront the Collector who is brooding over the unreachable prize. A fight breaks out, finished quickly by the hammer itself, driving all back from it, awaiting the coming of Thor Odinson....

And in the prison area, Bill, the goat, and the Hel-hound join Thor who is determined to claim the hammer, no matter what....
