Thor #2 Review by (August 30, 2012)
Review: A delightful issue with the light comical exploits of the townspeople making a great foil for the lonely brooding Thor. His majesty shines all the brighter in such a mundane setting. Who would have thought this of the guy who sold Spider-Man’s marriage to the devil?

Comments: First appearance of Bill Junior, the Broxton diner owner who will surprisingly become a significant character in the series.

Thor #2 Synopsis by Peter Silvestro

Dr. Don Blake spends his first days in Broxton, Oklahoma, getting acquainted with his new neighbors, then he drives out to a large spacious area a few miles from town. There, he strikes his stick on the ground and is transformed into the Mighty Thor, Norse God of Thunder. He calls down a massive thunderstorm from the heavens that attracts the attention of citizens and meteorologists for miles around with its severity, and when the sun reappears, it is shining on the newly raised city of Asgard! As he surveys his restored home, the sheriff arrives to tell him he does not own that land and cannot build on it. So he summons the lightning once more and raises the city to float several feet above the ground, circumventing the law. The nonplussed sheriff and his deputy drive away. Thor is brooding about the absence of his people when he is interrupted by Sam Miller, the owner of the property Asgard is floating above. Miller is willing to sell so Thor takes him to the treasury—an enormous room filled with gold—and tells him to take what he wants and never come back. Miller backs up the truck and takes Thor at his word….

Later, word gets around town about their new neighbor, and Beth Sooner wonders if he is lonely out there on the plain. He is, and he makes a vow to his old friends and comrades to bring them back if that is in any way possible….
