Thor #610 Review by (November 6, 2012)
Review: As it must come to all heroes, the evil twin plot comes to Thor. With his damaged cyborg face Ragnarok could be called the Thorminator but he is no match for the original model. Doug Braithwaite’s sketchy art isn’t the best fit for a title full of solid demigods but isn’t otherwise bad. And the Bill-Kelda plot takes on further poignancy with the lovers being separated by life and death.

Comments: The action takes place immediately after SIEGE #4.

Thor #610 Synopsis by Peter Silvestro

The day after the Siege of Asgard, King Balder is in despair, blaming himself in part for the disaster which has befallen them. Thor arrives and Balder lifts his exile, explaining how Loki (who died for Asgard in SIEGE #4) admitted to manipulating Bor’s death as well as the siege. Now that Thor is back, Balder would abdicate the throne in his favor but the Thunder God declines, saying the city’s chief defender should not also be her ruler, and offering his services as Balder’s advisor.

Lady Kelda returns to Asgard where she discovers that her fallen lover Bill Junior is now with the dead heroes in Valhalla. She would go to him but the living cannot enter the halls of the dead.

While searching the rubble for survivors of the destruction, the Warriors Three uncover the Thor clone Ragnarok (buried in issue #608) which comes out swinging. Thor comes upon the scene and the two Thunder Gods go at each other with a fury. The clone brags of its superiority but Thor calmly smashes it into pieces with Mjolnir. Thor then assures Balder that though the city has been destroyed, as long as two Asgardian brothers stand together, Asgard stands too.
