In honor of Thor : Dark World coming premiering today, I bring you the final part of this three issue saga.
On the cover, Captain America turns 1991, in 2016, Cap will be 75. Crazy how time works like that.
Believe it or not, Juggernaut is the better ruler than Prince Zalaski.
Kitty whispers to Thor, that she can escape at any time.
Thor promises the prince, that he will fight Juggernaut and not disgrace the prince.
Thus begins the meat of the issue. The pacing and action are awesome. This is a fight worthy of pay per view.
I like, at the start, that Thor allows Juggernaut to put his helmet on. This is going to be a battle, but an honorable battle. That page where he puts his helmet on, and then they have a bit of a stare down.
Kitty frees Excalibur, and they start fighting the rebels.
Thor creates this barrier around the city that makes magic uesless. This turns off Juggernaut’s force field, but only for a minute.
Now, Thor is doing damage to his foe. He would have won right there, but if he goes without Mjolnir for a full minute, he reverts back to Eric Masterson.
Back on Earth, Code : Blue is transporting Bulldozer, and The Wrecking Crew show up to bail him out. The new Ghost Rider, Dan Ketch (my favorite of the two Ghost Riders) shows up to fight the crew.
Thor throws his hammer into deep space, with Juggernaut tied to it. While he is turned back to Eric, he throws the prince under the bus. Who knew Thor would use a loophole?
In the middle of the speech, he turns back into Thor, and finishes the speech. Excalibur brings th prince back, in chains.
Ghost Rider holds his own, for a while. Then Wrecker zaps Ghost Rider, and draws out Mephisto. I take it that Ghost Rider was just coming out, and this guest spot is to promote that title.
Business Suit Loki decides he has to step in and deal with Wrecker.
Eric gets home, a caption box stating Thor dropped Excalibur back over seas.
Susan, his assistant and Jerry, some old guy, reveal they know his secret. If I owned the next issue, I bet the reveal is far from the truth.
There is an ad for the merged Incredible Hulk, which was a great era of the Hulk.
