Thor: God of Thunder #16 Review by (December 21, 2013)
Review: It’s starting to come together (better late than never) though Aaron is still having trouble blending comedy and drama smoothly: the Dark Elf squabbling doesn’t really mesh with the danger they are all in as evinced by the climax.

Thor reveals that there must be a traitor in their midst to explain how the enemy always seems to be one step ahead of them. Most of the league members suspect Wazira the Dark Elf witch but Thor accuses Ud the Troll. By his own authority he judges Ud guilty and executes him with a blow of his hammer (while Malekith watches unseen). He then dissolves the League and the men go home.

Thor addresses the tribal leaders to try to persuade them to work together against the common enemy but they reject his proposal. Thor then accuses Wazira of being the traitor but she responds with a spell that forces a grisly parasite out of his mouth, revealing that the Thunder God was the unwitting villain all along. Then Malekith walks in….
