Exclusive Cover Reveals: THOR & LOKI: THE TENTH REALM

Spilling out of ORIGINAL SIN (issues 5.1-5.5), Thor and Loki discover their connection to Angela.

On Wednesday, July 9, 2014, THOR & LOKI: THE TENTH REALM #1 comes out. It can also be seen as ORIGINAL SIN #5.1. Through the events of Original Sin, Odin's big secret is out. Everyone knew he raised his sons, Thor and Loki. It turns out he had a daughter as well. It appears that in order to keep her identity a secret, Odin banished an entire realm. And now, Angela will be looking for revenge.

Marvel has given us an exclusive first look at the Simone Bianchi covers. The cover to issue #2 is the variant. Dale Keown will be doing the regular cover. The covers for 3 through 5 will be the regular covers.

Worst "art" ever!

Edited by thehonorablerj

Can't be mad at JA for this. It's on the editor. Worst idea ever. They have to use this C-list, washed out forgotten character from Image that had her heyday 20 years ago, and now that Marvel owns the rights, they legally have to use her in print. Maybe they'll draw giant pouches and shoulder pads and mismatched boots on Thor to make her feel at home. Give everybody great big belt buckles and sashes and capes so impossibly long that anyone, god or man, would trip over them. .

"Everyone knew he raised two sons, Thor and Loki. It turns out he had a daughter as well."

I've readed sentence like this more and more time on review, preview and other things here on comicvine...

...but why everyone seem forget about BALDER, the only "true" son of Odin? Why?

I've missed something? O_O

@thatlyn_yoaeg_ill_rymmin: Balder? who is this Balder you speak of in the marvel universe

im just wondering why Zeus is in Asgard with Thor and Loki because if i remember correctly Odin isnt the type of all father that sleeps around thats Zeus thing

To reiterate another Viners observation. Thor is Odin's bastard son with Gaea, Loki is an adopted Frost Giant, regardless both of them are very much Odin's sons and that's wonderful but where is Balder in this miniseries? You know Balder the only natural born son of Odin and Frigga in the Marvel Universe and rightful heir to the throne of Asgard? Don't you think he'd like to hear about his sister?! Or is he being left out because he hasn't been featured in the films yet? Yea that's probably it. Hate it, but I'll deal with it. With any luck Balder will be in Thor 3 and well see his triumphant return to the Marvel Universe. In the meantime I'm sure this miniseries, like all the rest of Original Sin will be worth the read.

He is dead and bunished to kinda Limbo as far as i remember.

So is Simone Bianchi only doing the cover art ?

Posted by travmadison

@rubear: No he was returned from limbo. He has been seen sparingly though.

Edited by Z3RO180

@rubear: he isn't banished he chose to stay there

I remember back when Angela battled Spawn, but is she any match for Thor? I'd believe that Thor would curbstomp her.

Agreed Balder needs way more attention in the Marvel Universe.

I've never been the biggest fan of Thor, but I have been loving Loki's new comic series. I will be adding this to my list, look forward to learning more about Thor and Odin.

I currently don't read any of the asgardian focussed books but will 100% be checking this out.

Mangakid1995:

Normally Balder is not the only son of Odin and Frigga Hermod and Tyr the god of war are also from the myth but in comics there are 4 actually we have Thor from gaea, Loki adopted, Vidar from a giantess who came sometime ago to avenge his treatment the same way Angela is doing also and Balder of course. The way things are going we must assume that Angela is going to be amp to Thor level of characters she will be an 100 level and even in the guardians of the galaxy she was difficult to deal with even the combine might of the guardians it was almost impossible to put her down so we must expect a difficult fight for Thor and if we consider the fact that he's going to hold back because he knows theit relationship

It is just dumb to put her into Thor's franchise. Just make her be the Marvel's go to character for Christian mythology, just like Thor & Hercules are.
