@galeme: yup, and I had such high hopes for this event...

MCU Thor is a very weak version of Thor, especially AoU Thor whose pretty much only purpose was comic relief. He isn't winning this one.

@antithetical: I'm glad that I'm not the only one bothered by this

There's this one scene in Age of Ultron which makes it seem as if Marvel are finally going to redeem themselves and let Thor go all out and all epic but it ends up being another silly joke :|

And I think that Thor should've also been given some screen time fighting Hulk rather than the Hulkbuster armor vs Hulk fight we got (which was great, but still)

Seen the movie yesterday, Thor specifically says that Jane became the world's most famous astronomer and has no idea where she's at atm, but he and Tony kinda went over the "my girlfriend's cooler than yours" gig so I believe that Thor is still with Jane

Also, is anyone else bothered by the lowballing of Thor throughout the MCU? :/

So lately I've been getting into Thor, I read the entirety of Aaron's God of Thunder run a few months ago and have recently read a few other Thor runs:

Thor by JMS Omnibus & Thor by Kieron Gillen Ultimate Collecton & Thor: The World Eaters (basically the entirety of Thor vol. 3 followed by Thor 600-621)

The Mighty Thor by Matt Fraction which wasn't as good as I'd come to expect from Fraction after reading his Invincible Iron Man series a couple of years back

Thor by Dan Jurgens (most of Thor vol. 2) currently still reading this, I'm at issue 47 atm

And I'm planning on reading these:

Rest of Thor vol. 2 including the Avengers Disassembled story

Thor: Ragnarok by Roy Tomas and then read the Eternals saga

Walter Simonson's run

Are there are other good runs/story arcs worth a read that I should throw into this list? I don't mind reading silver age comics

@thearchon: Alan wasn't even trying to fight Darkseid in those scans, he focused his energy on saving as many people as he could. When DS used his omega beams nobody really died (as we learn from the Convergence teasers), so at best DS bfr'd an unfocused and arguably exhausted multiversal green avatar.

@supremthor: Can he really? It was stated in the very scans you present that he's dying because he's too close to a dying planet. However, let's look at what happens only a few pages later, when he gives up his humanity and fully embraces the power invested in him:

I actually found the majority of the event fun to read, but this issue was just crap. The hype that was built up during the event had little to no pay off and this issue felt rushed. 2 stars as far as I'm concerned.

@spiderman1997 @hiddenlight: I know of this scan though I have never read the story so if you could provide some context that'd be nice, however I do know that this version of Ultron isn't the AoU version which is the one I was referring to.
