Thor #11 Review by (January 6, 2021)

Review: So…Thor is still trapped in suburbia, the rest of the Asgardians are trapped in Dimension Blood, and Don Blake is running around killing all the Thors. The welcome return of Jane Foster, her VALKYRIE book being a casualty of the coronavirus, makes this issue special. It also promises some interesting developments in the story. And the return of Frog Thor, though, less anticipated, is also cool. And yes, a giant squirrel god shows up for a page. You did not dream it. So we’ll see what happens next month.  

Comments: Red Norvell was Thor in THOR #273-278. Throg first appeared in THOR #700 and has mostly appeared in ASGARDIANS OF THE GALAXY. Ratatoskr is an actual character from Norse mythology. Issue includes a one-page tribute to Mike Hobson (1936-2020), longtime Marvel publisher. And the Midgard Serpent does not appear in the comic, despite what is pictured on the cover.





 

Synopsis / Summary / Plot

Thor #11 Synopsis by Peter Silvestro

Evil Donald Blake is at a restaurant with Jane Foster, chatting about his “missing years” and his bond with Thor. Jane detects something different about him and he explains it away as Thor being somewhere far off (where he has been trapped by Blake, which Blake is careful not to mention)….

Thor, meanwhile, is trapped in the ruined remains of the idyllic small town in American where Don Blake had been placed; he cries for help and in his frustration hammers a giant chasm into the ground. He is approached by Ratatoskr, the Chaos God who delivers messages among the Ten Realms via Yggdrasil; Thor asks him to go for help. Ratatoskr tells him there is no one in Asgard….

All of the Asgardians have been banished to Dimension Blood where the inhabitants are trying to keep Volstagg fed. Sif checks in on Beta Ray Bill, who is prostrate from guilt over not protecting Sif from the evil Blake’s rampage (last issue). Bill then has the idea to send Lockjaw for help but Thori tells him the Inhuman’s big dog is gone to help a friend….

At the restaurant, Don Blake asks Jane about her own life, building up to finding out where Odin is. When he mentions that she had been Thor, Blake freaks out, (imagining he is) ripping her soul out of her body. He decides to leave, knowing she was good to him and unable to face acting against her….

Jane returns to the morgue to some news from Dr. Rudy Gillespie. A badly chewed up body has been brought in and identified as Red Norvell, a former Thor. Jane dashes into the bathroom to vomit, looks in the mirror and sees the symbol of her impending death over her head….

Don Blake, bearing Jarnbjorn, searches a swamp, seeking the next Thor to kill…and he finds him, as Throg, the froggy version of the God of Thunder, warned by Lockjaw, brings down the lightning on Don Blake….
