The Mighty Thor #23 Review by (October 5, 2017)
Comments: Final issue of series.

Review: And this title ends as it began: with the War of the Realms in progress. Not a satisfying close but Marvel is moving into its legacy period and so needs to restart the title but with #700 this time. So for now we can feel sorry for the beloved buffoon Volstagg and his brief career as a god of vengeance. Fortunately he was stopped before wreaking too much havoc and maybe he can sleep nights again. Not a lot to say here.


Synopsis / Summary / Plot

The Mighty Thor #23 Synopsis by Peter Silvestro

 In the Void, Jane Thor and Volstagg (War) Thor are battling to the finish, he fighting for war and her for peace. Bloodroot, wizard of Vanaheim, Balder King of Hel, the Angels of Heven all detect the portentous events on the horizon. Jane Thor gets hold of both her own and the War Thor's hammer and she slams them together and the Thors go crashing into Svartalfheim. War Thor takes this as a sign that this realm, Malekith's realm, must be destroyed....

In Asgardia, Roz Solomon searches for Volstagg and finds Thor Odinson; there is some romantic tension between them but Roz cuts it short to ask Heimdall to find the War Thor. Shortly thereafter, Odinson and Roz arrive in Svartalfheim where Odinson pleads with Volstagg to lay down the hammer (surprising Jane who did not know the identity of War Thor). Jane Thor drops her hammer and becomes dying Jane Foster once more. She begs her friend Volstagg to remember who he is—husband, father, senator, friend—and he drops the hammer and everything is good again. Odinson orders the Ultimates hammer back to old Asgard and it goes, to Roz's surprise.

The War of the Realms continues with a smug Malekith marshaling his forces (Hel and Roxxon) for another invasion....
