Synopsis / Summary / Plot

The Mighty Thor #5 Synopsis by Peter Silvestro

On the surface of Mars, Thor and the Silver Surfer are locked in deadly combat, until Sif interrupts with a more urgent matter…. In space, an enraged Odin goes head-to-head with Galactus—literally—shattering both their helmets and the two fall unconscious to the Earth….

In fallen Asgard, Volstagg gathers the amateur warriors of the Brigade of Realms to lead them into battle against the citizens of Broxton, while Loki pursues his own mysterious course. When Volstagg and his band arrive in the nearby town, Pastor Mike is reluctant to deliver his ultimatum to the fat and foolish warrior but the only other option is the wounded Odin who falls to the ground at that moment. In Odin’s chambers, Loki uses the magic gloves given to him by the Weird Sisters to remove the Galactus Seed from the Destroyer armor….

From space, the Silver Surfer hastens to his fallen master, while Thor and Sif reach the critically injured Odin. The All-Father mutters a cryptic prophecy and enters the healing Odinsleep. The recovered Galactus offers an ultimatum to the Asgardeans, demanding they turn over the Seed—but he is opposed by the Silver Surfer, who warns him of the consequences of war with a race of gods.

In Asgard, Loki ties the thread given him by the Weird Sisters to an anchor, takes the Galactus Seed in his hands —and dives into the abyss that houses Yggdrasil the World Tree….

At the confrontation near Broxton, Pastor Mike, assured that Galactus was once a man and armed with the Good News of Christ, steps forth to speak to the World-Devourer….
