Thor #248 Review by (August 29, 2014)
Review: Nice mix of suspense (the opening storm), comedy (Warriors Three), and action (the assault on Asgard) with the mystery of why Odin is so cranky these days sprinkled on top. Pretty cool though the storm giant is not as formidable as he appears on the juiced-up cover.

Comments: Part one of a three-part story.




 

Synopsis / Summary / Plot

Thor #248 Synopsis by Peter Silvestro
Thor and Jane Foster return to her apartment during a raging thunderstorm; Thor tries to stop the storm but finds it resisting him. He manages to calm the weather but ends up exhausted. Going to Jane’s apartment, he sees on the TV that the Warriors Three are at the center of a traffic jam in Central Park. Thor heads to the scene and finds his fellow exiles bickering with drivers and police. Thor uses his mighty strength to carry the vehicles around each other thus alleviating the congestion. They all return to Jane’s to find her nursing the wounded Balder; the brave hero informs them of Odin’s madness and tyranny back in Asgard. Thor leads them all (including Jane who carries the spirit of Sif within her) to the Rainbow Bridge where Heimdall denies them entry; he summons an army to stop them but the heroes defeat their foes in a mind-boggling clash of arms. Volstagg ends the fight by knocking Heimdall on the head and they enter the kingdom to find the inhabitants living in pain and squalor. Thor gathers an army of disaffected warriors to him and they fight their way into the Tower of Solitude to free the imprisoned Grand Vizier; Thor punches out a storm giant (as shown on the cover) to get to the cells to free their quarry. When the news reaches Odin he says he looks forward to the death of Thor….
