The cover is a homage of Uncanny X-Men’s first issue. Kitty is in the Iceman position. Captain Britain is Cyclops. Meggan is Jean. Nightcrawler is Beast. Rachel is Angel.
Thor / Juggernaut is, of course, Magneto.
This is during that awkward era when Thor was also Eric Masterson. The only good thing about him is that he is an architect.
Is he suppose to be two separate beings, sharing one body? Seems like he is a different Thor.
Apparently, last issue, Thor saved the universe.
Eric is on the losing side of a custody case with his ex-wife. He can’t have his son full time, or part time, and be the thunder god.
Eric wants to spend time with his lady friend, Jackie. There is a fantastic sight gag with her brother.
They walk by a newspaper stand, the Daily Bugle, the headline being that the Wrecker is on a rampage.
What makes me think that he is a different Thor or that Thor is a time share, is that early, he thinks Lady Sif is more attractive when he is Thor. The other time, is with Captain America at Avengers Mansion. They are doing a training session, and then Thor just destroys the modules. Why the hell would he do that? Thor comes off like an idiot. To the point where Captain America has no other choice but to face palm. This is December 1990.
The British government sends Excalibur to America to track down Thor. Juggernaut escaped his prison in Thor 412.
The awkward thing with this trip is that three fifths of the team has close ties with the East Coast. They will make no attempt to reach out to those friends.
This issue is very guest star cameo heavy.
The Wrecking Crew are stealing groceries.
For whatever reason, Loki and Enchantress are in business attire and working out of a skyscraper. Even Ulik is in a suit!
There is a two page ad for Tiger Electronics. Never own on of those
I like the idea of Code : Blue, a squad of New York City Police Officers who are train to fight super villains.
Loki gave Enchantress and Ulik an item to trap Wrecker. When they set it off, it gets the attentions of : Dr. Strange, Spider-Man and Quasar.
Fun moment when Wrecker gives Thunderball a new wrecking ball and tells him to not plan any more take overs. As soon as he says that, Thunderball immediately thinks about taking over the crew.
Rachel also hears the trap, and with Excalibur, blasts through the ceiling of Kennedy Airport.
Kitty is a tad disappointed that Rachel can’t control her impulses.
Eric reunites with his son. He hears the siren from the trap, andd ignores it.
We get an Excalibur vs. Wrecking Crew fight.
Bulldozer tries to run down Kitty, she lets him go right through her.
Thor shows up to the fight, he is having a mental monologue about how his priorities are wrong. Another example of how I am sure that he just happens to be Thor, in name only. When he is around people who knew Thor, he is faking it as best as he can.
The Wrecker tricks Excalibur to believe when they see Thor, they are really seeing Juggernaut. Even though they still hear him speak like an Asgardian. They are heroes, so of course, they just start punching away.
Issue ends with Kitty showing everybody, that she can beat Thor, if ahe doesn’t give a damn about his well being.
He is phased into the ground, and let go. It looks as painful as one would imagine.
Kitty defeated Thor.
