Last week-end, I saw Avengers 2. I found the film really good. Alternating very well, fast and slower paces.and humor is sucessfully distilled along the film.
But I think, the thing that amazed me the most is the avengers' skills.
As soon as they switch to "combat mode" they are like some kind of professionnal assassins : the right move at the right time. The synergy between them during the fights definitely worth a look.
And Thor is no exception.
About Thor, I don't want to say to many thing, but from my point of view it's one of the best way he was ever depicted : funny, skilled in combat with his bare hands, "enlightened". He has something of the "classic Thor".
There is just two moments in the film that a Thor fan can be disapointed but think about
that : Mini spoiler
five two seconds after whatever happens to him is he really hurt?
Just remind you that the guy who managed the feat :
- is depicted as a pure being;
- has one of the most powerful artefact in the universe
@asgaard: Hi asgaard! You're really prolific, it's cool. :)
Here's my "humble" point of view :
From the beginning Aaron didn't stick with the continuity. People didn't care, because Aaron is a good story teller and Thor looked badass. But we were already far, far away the Thor that Stan Lee and Jack Kirby created (the one who is my favorite super hero).
When Thor was created, at the early beginning, the writers let us thought that Donald Blake was a human who inherited the power of Thor from Mjolnir.
Maybe because the soul and the power of Thor resided in the hammer.
My guess :
I think this is the approach that Aaron wants to use. He doesn't care about continuity and wants to tell his own vision of Thor and Mjolnir.
I wouldn't be suprised if it turns out that Odinson was a vessel created by Odin for the soul of Thor residing in Mjolnir.
Ps : From my point of view, the inscription on Mjolnir was altered by one of the best Thor artist to create Beta Ray Bill. ;(
i think at the beginning it was just there to let Donald Blake thinks he was a human worthy of Mjolnir.
