War of the Realms Omega #1 Review by (July 10, 2019)

Review: Pretty nice set of semi-stories serve their purpose of setting up a new series of titles for Marvel. Me, I think Jane Foster came off the best.

Comments: Wrap-up to WAR OF THE REALMS and lead-in to various new series. Origin of Jane Foster as the new Valkyrie. First appearance of Drrf.

Heimdall finds Daredevil brooding over the power he had as the God without Fear and wanting to hold onto the sword for just a little longer.

The other giants arrive and though they recognize Loki as their king they demand to punish Drrf.

Moving on he faces a giant hound and calmly blows its head off. He finds a bunch of Asgardians drinking in a bar and shoots a glass out of one reveler's hand. Thor arrives and tells the guys that the time for feasting is not yet, the dead must be buried first. Thor offers help to Frank but he heads off to a meeting at dawn. In a cemetery he meets a man named Jones and tells him that the monster who killed his wife and child got away but he will continue to hunt it down. Jones introduces him to a band of orphans whose families were killed by monsters—and Frank is a monster hunter....

Epilogue: Having shown Daredevil the war's aftermath, Heimdall presents him with a pair of fighting sticks carved from Yggdrasil to remind him that he was once the God without Fear. They hear a cry for help from a mugging victim not far away and they act together for Midgard....
