Well, the first comic I read with Thor was an Avengers issue (I forget which one). I didn't care for him. I didn't like him until I read What if volume 2 #41, What if the Avengers had fought Galactus. I love seeing him fight Silver Surfer in that, and really made me like the character. So I read more comics with him. The First was the Mighty Thor #337.

Sorry I can't get a bigger pic.

My first comic with Thor was actually an Avengers issue.

But later on I read some Mighty Thor.

It sure was a random comic.

The story within came at the end of the "Odin Quest." As such, it did little to explain what had happened before and who Thor & his supporting cast were and what they could do. At the time it was confusing for my 8-year-old brain but luckily I didn't give up on Thor.

@PowerHerc: Sounds Cool though, Glad you did not give up.

@Pyrogram: I'm glad I didn't give up, too.

The comic ended in a cliff-hanger with a full page panel of the Destroyer bursting through a wall looking to destroy Thor.

@Asagod: Cool thanks, was it an actual thor solo issue? As Its a hard time finding certain issues like that.

Thor vs Ego

It's a Maximum Security tie-in that reprints Ego's first appearance, and another couple of issues where Thor and Ego team up against Galactus. I hated the Maximum Security storyline, but I did really like that reprint.

Yes, it is. It's out of normal continuity. I don't know if you read it, but it tells about an teenage Thor, who is unable to wield Mjolnir.

In the first issues he is sent by Odin, along with Balder and Sif, to gather some itens, with which Odin will forge a sword.

From what I know there were launched 12 issues, but I'm not sure.

@Asagod: Sounds interesting, I will look into it.

This is funny because I posted this same topic on another board about a year ago. This is the post, it's my first issue and the first time I fully realized Thor was my favorite super hero.

I have always loved super-heroes and my brother and I collected X-Men, Superman and Batman comics with passing interest. Then one foggy Christmas eve my aunt put a stack of comics in front of me that diversified my reading and introduced me to my favorite super-hero. Sure there were some Daredevils, X-Mens, Wolverines and my very first Thor; #461. I did not know anything about the story or character, all I knew was that this gnarly viking guy was beating the hell out of an alien copy of him. I liked the issue alot but still wasn't hooked. I went through the next few years collecting Wolverine and other comics, but my interest in comics was starting to fade. Then on a day unlike any other I came upon the issue that would cement Thor as my favorite comic book character, Thor #500! The story was amazing, the art was Deodato, and there was even a little guide in the back to help introduce me to the Thor universe! From that day forward I became obsessed with collecting issues of Thor and Thor related titles. Would anyone else like to share the story of their first Thor issue and when they realized he was their favorite?

The first one that I fully read was this one:

After that, I read it until issue six. I really enjoyed it, so I read even more Thor comics.

As a result, now he's one of my favorite heroes! He's my 2nd favorite, actually.

@LastOblivion: Thats a cool issue, is that the one where Thor goes ape shit and KO's galactus for a few seconds?

Thor Vol. 1 by J. Michael Straczynski. I'm very glad I started there.

#33 Posted by LastOblivion (141 posts) - - Show Bio

@Pyrogram: It's cool indeed!

And no, they're from the same arc, but the one where this happens is issue 4.

My buddy in grade school introduced me to Thor (wish I could remember the issue). Loki got ahold of the Destroyer armor and used it to attack Thor and Asgard. The clincher? Thor finds out toward the end of the story that the Destroyer is animated by the spirit of Balder the Brave!

I've been hooked ever since. Loved his first fight with the Enchaters. Always LOVED his fights with Hulk. More recently, his fight with Thanos and Mangog by Jurgens was epic. And pretty much anything Stracynski wrote was gold.
