The The God Butcher, Part Two of Five: Blood in the Clouds wiki last edited by Acuna_Alexander on 01/29/15 07:11PM View full history

Throughout the ages, the gods of the Marvel Universe have been vanishing, their mortal worshippers left in chaos. NOW! the Mighty Thor follows a trail of blood that threatens to consume his past, present and future selves. The only hope for these ravaged worlds lies with the God of Thunder unraveling the gruesome mystery of the God Butcher!

Many Years Ago: Thor is trying to lift Mjolnir in the Great Weapons Hall of Asgard but doesn't succeed.

893 AD: Thor sails over the Baltic Sea. The sailors see a figure in the fog and it turns out to be the God Butcher, following them. They land on the shores of Neva River and Thor asks the people there for their gods. They don't react very friendly but then one god's horse comes down without him, spattered in blood. Thor follows the blood trail, encounters another dead god. Then the God Butcher confronts him and they fight. Thor remembers that, as a child, a god named Dagr went on a killing spree until he was executed by Odin. Thor is haunted by the face of Dagr for a long time afterwards. The fight continues until Thor hits the God Butcher with lightning.

The Present Day: Thor has defeated the God Butcher's servants and swears to find him by following the trail of dead gods.

Fight or Flight 0

Continuing with the theme of being completely awesome, Thor's most recent adventure proves to be exciting, well thought out, and generally fantastic.This issue focuses on Thor's first encounter with the God Butcher, before he has the power of Mjolner in his grasp. Though there isn't anything we implicitly know about these figure beyond his appearance (which is freakin' awesome!), but we do get a lot of hints at who/what he may be. The fight is very well presented, and there's never a dull moment...
