After a long and i mean long time of nerdrage i need to say i really like this costume and my previous comment were just hot air. This costume is badass. I mean looking back at when they first showed his costume i think i was already angry at some other thing so after i thought on it this costume is pretty badass.

Yeah at first glance I can't say I'm a fan. The Sword one is slighty better but I'm not really taken with that ether, still think his current one is the best so far.

I grew into the look. but according to an interview, Aaron said he was writing stories about Thor in the past which may mean that the swords costume exists in the present.

No to the swords, yes to the red cape but I'm not feeling the cover art. Thor looks like he's straight out of a Warner Brother's cartoon, I half expect Bugs Bunny to appear over his shoulder in a blonde two braid wig.

They could do the Gene Kelly / Jerry Mouse dance scene though.

I like this one better. It closer to the classic look which I've always been a big fan of.

@sagejonathan: see when it comes to thors costume im really confused cause whats the pouint in haveing two main new costumes for a character

Thor should look like this:

#11 Posted by sagejonathan (1960 posts) - - Show Bio

@Z3RO180: Well its not two main costumes if the costume shown is from the past. Like I said, the upcoming stories are in the past not present which may explain the more classic costume.

I like this, but i would rather his hair be blond, instead of red, and for Mjolnir to be fully rectangular, and noo twisted beard.

I don't like both costumes but the one from Esad Ribic is better.

Isn't the first arc taking place in three seperate time periods, Viking Thor, Current Thor and old future King Thor ? That would require 3 costumes for the first arc alone.

Here is a quote from the interview over on Newsarama- here is a link http://www.newsarama.com/comics/thor-god-of-thunder-marvel-now-jason-aaron.html

"This first story is an epic tale that plays out over the course of thousands of years. So we spend time with young Thor in the Viking age — the young, hotheaded god of the Vikings, who loves to come down to Midgard and get into trouble.

In the present, we see Thor the Avenger on a journey that takes him to the far corners of space, interacting with all sorts of new space gods and wondrous new locations.

And then we also see old King Thor, who's the last king of Asgard, thousands of years in the future, where something has gone horribly, horribly wrong.

Linking all these eras and Thors together is one villain, an all-new character, who is basically, at least initially, a serial killer of gods. He's a guy with a serious axe to grind against all immortal beings in the cosmos, and he's going around doing his best to kill them all off, one at a time, as brutally as possible. That villain's story unfolds over the course of all these different eras. He starts as a serial killer of gods, but by the end, he has become something even more frightening."

I like the red so its more in-line with the mythology

F*ck that.

THIS should be his only costume:

#22 Posted by Z3RO180 (6592 posts) - - Show Bio

@Danvidar: so the on one the coverof god of thunder is in the past and the one with the swords is current thor? Also the whole god killer thing sounds a lot like dersack

#23 Posted by Danvidar (41 posts) - - Show Bio

I thought so until they released the cover to Issue 2 which shows past Thor here it is

Also it seems the first couple of covers will form one giant image here is the first 2 combined

#24 Posted by Z3RO180 (6592 posts) - - Show Bio

@Danvidar: the one with the swords need to be thors main costume.

No no no no no no.....Nooooooooooooo...!!! ;(

@ThePhoenX: Do you not like his costume in this preview?

#29 Edited by ThePhoenX (119 posts) - - Show Bio

@Selinaky: I don't! It's too "realistic". I prefer the costumes who look more... "comics" :

The old classic :) :

I liked when he switched with this ones in the Celestial's Saga : That was cool!!! :D

Coipel by Tan : Very nice XD

And even a "Japanime" One... An anime with this Thor : I SAY THEE YES! =P

#30 Posted by TheGodofThunder (598 posts) - - Show Bio

Well what about the coipel variant thats on the avengers cover? That thing looks to be the worse out of the three new ones floating around.

#31 Posted by PowerHerc (84386 posts) - - Show Bio

Thor's new look has him in fetish gloves and armored pants that look plaid.

Total fail.

#32 Posted by Selinaky (677 posts) - - Show Bio

@ThePhoenX: I'm not a big fan of the new one either. The 'past Thor' looks pretty cool though, like a viking. (my display pic is from that same comic as the GIF you posted haha)

@TheGodofThunder: Have you got a pic of the one you mean?

Besides the classic, this is my favourite Thor outfit design (drawn by Chris Samnee):

The sword one is better, though nothing compares to his classic costume.
