Thor #7 Review by (September 16, 2020)
Review: An interesting and amusing issue (haven’t had a lot of that lately) with a lot of surprises; this tale will wrap up in only two issues so we shouldn’t expect anything intense, especially with that comical cover. And Tony Stark is a pompous jerk, but we knew that already.      

Comments: Thor destroyed Bill’s hammer Stormbreaker in issue #3. Beta Ray Bill killed Thanos in GUARDIANS OF THE GALAXY (2019) #5-6. Loki picked up Mjolnir in issue #4. Issue includes some costume designs for Adam and Bill with an inks only cover study. Oh and if you call Tony Stark’s private number, you get a clever Easter egg for the issue.


Synopsis / Summary / Plot

Thor #7 Synopsis by Peter Silvestro

Broxton, Oklahoma: auto repairman Adam Aziz sees something fall from the sky and leave a crater in the Earth. Checking it out, he finds Mjolnir; after a closer look, he makes a phone call….

In Asgard, Sif wants to know why Thor (speaking via Hugin the raven) threw Mjolnir to Earth; he tells her it is an experiment and asks her to keep an eye out. Thor then meets with Beta Ray Bill; the relationship is frosty because the last time they met, Thor destroyed Bill’s hammer Stormbringer. Thor, recalling the vision he had of his death (last issue), asks Bill for info about Thanos….

Iron Man arrives in Broxton with one question on his mind: how did Adam Aziz get his private telephone number? Adam shows him: Mjolnir has written on it, “Call Tony Stark. 212-970-4133.” Tony loses his temper; Thor sees it and laughs….

Bill tells Thor all about how he killed Thanos and presumably is no longer a threat. Thor confesses that something is wrong and he wants to know that, if the worst happens, will Bill be his second-in-command? He explains something is radically wrong with Mjolnir…

…as Iron Man tries to calm the crowd telling everyone that no one can lift Thor’s hammer. The message on Mjolnir changes to, “Pick it up.” While Shellhead is dealing with crowd control, Adam picks up the hammer and is transformed into an armored hero….
