Yes, but that's where Beta Ray Bill comes in though. Can't wait to see what Marvel Now has in stores for Beta Ray Bill.

He could be though I'd prefer him to remain a mythic one.

Eh? Thor already is a cosmic hero. Thats how Lee and Kirby sold him, a mythological, a cosmic, an everything hero. Ego's first appearance in a comic? Thor. Galactus origin was told where the first time? Thor. Think of how associated Celestials are with Thor. Heh heh though I agree he should be spending more time out there exploring the Universe, I really liked Astonishing Thor mini series which was the last proper space Thor story I remember liking - not counting Matt Fractions run, but it tried.

@SC well oN some level God of Thunder is sort of a cosmic story. But yes Thor needs to be in space and be all thorieoly doing space stuff.

Thor is both a mythological and cosmic Marvel character. They just have him hang out in Midgard because he is "the son of Gaea" and he has an affinity for Earth. Plus, he's an Avenger.

I find Thor more fascinating when he's traversing the cosmos and dealing with problems in other universes and encountering other cosmic characters (like Silver Surfer, Gladiator, etc.).

Beta Ray Bill pretty much fills this purpose. You have thor on earth dealing with earth threats while beta ray bill flies around in space dealing with cosmic threats.

Not to mention Asgard currently sits above Oklahoma. One of the few blights of the JMS run. I miss just the traveling through the bi-frost. Putting Asgard on Earth humanizes it too much, but that's Marvel's obsession sometimes.

Maybe if thor went cosmic for a while, we could see him flex some of those proverbial muscles and not job to people who are under him.

@HaveAtThee that was the whole point of the JMS run IMO

Yeah that was a big part of JMS' take. It's the one aspect I didn't agree with. Thor and Asgardians now are as ubiquitous as any superhuman roaming around Earth.
