The Mighty Thor #2 Review by (December 23, 2015)
Review: Bright colors work their magic in a series that readily welcomes them, thanks to the gifted Dauterman and Wilson. And it seems that Jason Aaron is over the gloomy mood he was in while writing the overly dark and grim THOR, GOD OF THUNDER. Even if there is nothing “new” or “different” about this new title, the story is still enjoyable and the star likeable. Nice sinister touch at the end, too. This may turn out to be a good series after all.


Synopsis / Summary / Plot

The Mighty Thor #2 Synopsis by Peter Silvestro

Loki has applied to join the Dark Council headed by Malekith; his father Laufey takes him to the icy wastes of Jotunheim. Laufey promises to endorse Loki for membership if he proves himself by walking through a snowy canyon—one that is occupied by five giant warriors….


At the gate of Asgardia, the new Thor confronts Cul Borson who is accompanied by his Thunder Guard who intend to arrest her. With her new power over the hammer Mjolnir, she sends it zipping through space taking down each of the five soldiers surrounding her. Cul then summons more guards who inundate her with thrown hammers knocking her down. Cul steps forward to sever her hands with his axe but he is blocked by Heimdall. The Guardian then sends Thor off through the Rainbow Bridge to Alfheim, her intended destination. Heimdall then surrenders to the guards who imprison him for treason….


Thor arrives in Alfheim where the Light Elves are being slaughtered by the forces of Malekith: Necro-troops with swamp mammoths and Roxxon tanks. She enters the field and proclaims “This war ends now!”


Malekith and his War Witches watch from a distance; the Enchantress stands with him and asks permission to kill the new Thor. His plan calls for her to use her charms on another target….


Loki has come unscathed though the canyon, leaving all of the giant warriors dead. He astonishes Laufey with the revelation that all he did was talk to them and they destroyed themselves and each other….


Laufey enters the battlefield in Alfheim, invited by Malekith to witness the fall of the Light Elves’ capital. The giant king also wishes to see how Loki fares against the new Goddess of Thunder and promises that neither one will survive….


Before the capital Thor is surprised by the arrival of Loki who has a plan to save a remnant of Elves. He assures her he comes in peace, “I only want to talk....”
