Thor #142 Synopsis by Marvel Comics
A motorcyclist challenges Thor to a race. Thor takes him and his motorcycle on a flight through the air, giving the driver a new appreciation of speed. 

Having apparently shaken off the beam of forgetfulness and traveled from non-space to a dimension of exile, Loki uses his astral form to spy on the disgraced Super-Skrull in a patrol ship at the Skrull galaxy's border. Loki plants the idea in the Super-Skrull's mind that he could regain his champion status be defeating Thor. The Super-Skrull flies to Earth and starts a rampage, attracting Thor's attention.

In Asgard, Odin informs Balder that the Enchanters have been sighted in Ringsfjord. He wants him to learn what their plans are. Sif offers to help guide Balder and Odin agrees.

On Earth, Thor and the Super-Skrull battle until Thor strikes him with anti-force, propelling him into space. Loki fumes over losing yet again.

Meanwhile, Thor and the Warriors Two (Volstagg has remained behind to keep company with a lovely maiden) fight furiously against Mogul’s royal guards. Then in the distance they spy the charging Forty Horsemen of Satan, with the rider at their head bearing the battle standard of Hogun’s tribe….
