im really mixed when it comes to immomens art , some of it is fraken amazing but some of it just dosent appeal to me.
anyhow i am going to try with all my might to pick up all the issues of fear itself
All of these people who are worthy are evil, or, they can be evil and get more evil. 'Gods' got their power from the FEAR of their followers. Maybe Odin knows are is upset that the humans don't see them as 'gods' anymore? So now, the 'god' of FEAR will make people FEAR him. Will he try to make them worship him under the threat of "FEAR me or be terrorized??
I wonder if the Serpent has any connection to the Midgard Serpent?
Alternatively (far out), this could also be Surtur since he's the only one who's gets the Asgardians quaking in their boots.
But I'm looking forwards to this.
PS. Odin's father was called Bor.
Wait, I thought the Asgardians were Aliens in the Ultimate U not 616. I mean Thor's the son of Gaea and Odin. And Odin's a member of the Skyfather council with the other gods of various pantheons. I'm pretty sure they're legit deities, just not truly immortal like their Olympian counter parts.
The best part of the this whole review Tony says " I have dreams". Tony do you dream of being Thor flying through the cosmos?
So I lovewhere this book is going the only thing I am starting to get a little weary of is some of the political refferences. Not just in the main title but in Home Front as well. I understand the importance of grounding them inareal world setting, but I live that garbage every day I don't necessarily want to read a lot of it. But I agree this looks very promising.
The subplot involving the human characters, the riot, the housing crisis, the father and his son, and the small moment like the locked door, had a very nice grounding element in Fear Itself #1, and I think its a smart move, when dealing in these big massive epic events, with so many characters.
" @SC: Yeah, I was talking about Dark Man. I wondered if he'd turn up in this but I don't think they'd bring him back.
He does have a sort of hammer though."
I agree Babs, its got to be an older brother. Odin seals him away to take the throne of Asgard. this brother seems to be the equivalent of loki.
in dealing with the hammers i see them as similar to the Sinestro corp rings in terms that those who inspire great amounts of fear will be worthy to wield the hammers.
Great video! I really dig the spoiler-warned full discussion of issues so you can just talk more openly about the content. Hope we see more of these in the future!
" I'm wondering if the 'Serpent' is Odin's dark side....or his darker side anyway. Took some portion of himself and locked it away so he could be a better king to the Asgardians. He put Thor inside a mortal body on Earth all those years ago so it's not beyond his abilities. "I like it! Not sure if that's how they'll play it, but that's a cool idea. :)
Book of Skulls: Prologue was awesome. Fear Itself Book #1 was awesome. Sin became Skadi, who had only appeared in one other issue before as a Goddess of Asgard. Apparently Skadi's father's name is Thiazzi. Could this be the Serpent? If so, how crazy would it be if it turned out that he's the true All-Father and not Odin?
Nice review guys.
Initially I didn't have a problem with the riot, but one review I read (on another site) changed my mind a bit. Instead of a vague reference to building a mosque, why not build that sense of fear and controversy over rebuilding Asgard?
As Chicago's "Stamford Incident" Marvel/Fraction could have used the incident in Soldier Field to divide the people's views on the Asgardians living in the U.S. Even though it may have been explained as an accident that probably wouldn't stop people from still seeing them as a threat.
This group could consist of people from Chicago along with former H.A.M.M.E.R loyalists and Osborne followers. It would have been cool to see them protest and cause a riot during Starks press conference to hire people to rebuild Asgard.

He put Thor inside a mortal body on Earth all those years ago so it's not beyond his abilities. "I agree with Price, I'm going with this possible theory.... Fear's God would be something really extraordinary I think. The Worthy will be indeed some bad SOBs form the Marvel Universe, just think of those megavillains with super powered hammers. I think that the Worthy are NOT the good guys this time, I suppose it.... Wacko!!
I bought the issue, and had not read it. Then the video is up so I went and read it.
" Wait, I thought the Asgardians were Aliens in the Ultimate U not 616. I mean Thor's the son of Gaea and Odin. And Odin's a member of the Skyfather council with the other gods of various pantheons. I'm pretty sure they're legit deities, just not truly immortal like their Olympian counter parts. "I know it's not really 616 canon, but Earth X explained that all of the earths pantheons of gods are aliens that have evolved(due to the Celestials) to the point that their very forms are shaped by the beliefs of those around them.
Is it just me. Or does Babs look a little PO'd in this video. Not aout the subject matter, just overall. Like someone farted, and she had to sit in ass stink or something.
Okay to the subject at hand... This is awsome. The Hammers are fricken sweet. I will tell you one thing however. BRB has had his Hammer far longer than these new weilders, are they just bestowed with the knowledge to use them. Thor is a master with his Hammer because he has been using it for as long as he has. So even if the Hammers are more powerful, they should still not have the skill that Thor or BRB has with their Hammers.
