Will Thor FINALLY have his moment in AVX #9 with Spidey?

#1 Posted by Tyrus (1083 posts) - - Show Bio

Well, so far in the entire run of AVX - Thor has been a punching bag. I literally hate this, I only caught up again yesterday - but I can understand why Marvel is doing this - they have to balance the characters in terms of strength to make it fair - much like over at DC where they try to make Superman get punched once in a while... But from what I've seen, it looks like Thor and Spidey may go face to face with Phoenix - Can Thor redeem himself this issue? Better hope so... Because it may just be an entire Spidey issue...

Well to be fair, he's taken on two of the Phoenix empowered beings. That's better than anyone save for Wanda.

If the preview for AvX 9 is anything to go by, then no. It looks like Spidey will take up all the limelight. There's a rumour that Spider-Man is going to be the host for the Phoenix Force hence the shadowy figure on issue 12's cover.

@Deranged Midget: It is a bit inconsistent though for Thor to be able to damage the PF only to lose to PF empowered Emma Frost who only had a fifth of the PF's power. Thor's showings against the Phoenix in AvX have been pretty much all over the place.

No doubt. As for the Spider-man rumour, please don't Marvel. Spider-man is best where he is right now.

In terms of jobbing, Thor has become the new Galactus.

this is more likely to happen not unless the writer wants the Avengers to win against the Phoenix 5, but until then thor will continue to job.

He should have turned into Deconsecrator. Deconsecrator Of The Blackest Death Metal. Deconsecrator would destroy Phoenix Five. Deconsecrator is all about destroying stuff - like crappy plots, bad characterizations, and pointless crossovers and things. FOREVER.

Hold on, lemme just cut and paste what i posted on that image.

LOL. Why are people QQing at Thor getting written down or w.e in this event ? First of all, it's AvX, one of Marvel's worst crossovers ever, clearly poorly thought out and it was a forced ploy in order to bring about a new age, nothing good would come of it. Second of all, the guy gets written as to pummeling down sh!t every other day...so i think you should all accept it and move on.

Seriously though, it's like nobody ever listened to Wonder Girl.

He had a moment in a tie in, but yes Thor's treatment in AVX must be irritating for his fans, you guys have my condolences.

@eatmore_payless: if the writers want somebody to take down the Phoenix 5 it'll either be Wanda who does it or Cyclops after he absorbs the powers of the other Phoenix users before fighting the Phoenix itself
