Thor #34 Review by (May 24, 2023)

Review: Okay, I now confess that I am not following this story. Much of what I’m looking at has little connection to what has gone before. This story arc concludes with the next issue. I’ll be back then. This review may change, depending on what happens next time. Or maybe I just need a nap. Either way….

Comments: Sergio Davila is credited as assisting with the pencils, Sean Parsons as contributing to the inking.


Synopsis / Summary / Plot

Thor #34 Synopsis by Peter Silvestro

A flashback to Doctor Doom invading Hel and capturing the souls to fuel his ritual, trapping Hela, Goddess of Death, in the process….

Pursuing Doom and having lost him, Thor greets the grown Laussa, telling her he will navigate the time storm….

In ancient Nifflheim, a warrior killed a wolf and was called Varg and with the passing years he transformed into a wolf….

At the vault in modern Niffleheim, Thanos, seeking the Black Stone, is surprised to see the ritual has created a baby. He decides to sacrifice her and draws his knife but Doom stops him. A debate follows, with the nihilistic Thanos calling for widespread death for worthless people and Doom asserting that he can change mankind. Thor and Laussa arrive; the Thunder God tells her to rescue the baby while he deals with the men. Thanos tries to stab the baby but Doom intervenes ands is wounded. Thor hurls Mjolnir, striking Thanos. Bor arrives and hearing Thor called Odinson puzzles him….

Runa and Mister Horse, summoned by Jane Foster, stop by Broxton and pick up Brun, who has been playing with baby Laussa, and head for Latveria….

Valkyrie (Jane Foster) arrives in an unspecified place and encounters Bor and Odin; The former senses that his vault has been opened and he casually mentions to Odin that he has met Thor….

Thor battles Thanos, still debating whether individual life has value. Doom tries to escape with the baby and Thanos grabs him; Doom drops the baby as they fall into the time storm. Within seconds, the baby grows into a young woman and Laussa takes her under her wing. They are attacked by the big wolf called Varg and Laussa slashes its throat—and the wolf’s spirit melts into the sword. Then they are attacked by more monsters and rush to Thor for protection. Thor introduces Laussa to her grandfather Bor and then tells the old man that the girl is a goddess, inviting him to look into the time storm to confirm this….

At the later date, Bor tells Odin and Jane how he saw the fall of his kingdom and Odin’s wisdom in his rule and the raising of his children and was able to rest easily….

Thor leads Laussa and the girl to Jotunheim where they see a much younger Thor fighting giants; Thor introduces the girl, Hela, to her father—Loki….
