Thor #618 Review by (December 8, 2012)
Review: So Thor decides to help the refugees of the Nine Worlds (rather nice of him, don’t you think?) and that means he must retrieve Odin from Limbo. Right. The best part of the issue is the scenes of the inhuman exodus, with Pascual Ferry giving us a nice array of fantastic creatures. The worst part is that the entire issue is essentially a plea for the heroes to do something heroic. Sigh. I pine for the good old days when heroes just did this sort of thing automatically.

Comments: The World Eaters, villains of this story arc, do not appear in this issue.


Synopsis / Summary / Plot

Thor #618 Synopsis by Peter Silvestro

In Limbo, the dead Odin spends his days in endless combat with enemies such as the Hel-Wolf, while refugees from across the Nine Worlds come to Asgard near Broxton, Oklahoma for safety. These who have witnessed the destructions of their homes and peoples at the hands of the World Eaters appeal to King Balder for aid—but he can promise them nothing. They seek to storm the broken walls of Asgard but the sudden arrival of Thor holds them back. Thor demands they find a peaceful resolution to the conflict but the dwarves especially are firm in their demands for protection from the gods. The Asgardians lining the walls are further upset when they notice that the figure accompanying Thor is a young Loki….

In Broxton Tony Stark has settled matters between Jane Foster and the maladroit Dr Eric Solvang. When a sky full of lightning heralds the return of Thor, Tony and Jane encourage Solvang to again attempt to explain the coming disaster to the God of Thunder….

At a nighttime meeting, representatives of the other eight worlds appeal to Asgard as the center and protector of the Nine Worlds linked by the World Tree. Now they are invaded by the armies of a tenth world, and Balder now promises them shelter and vows that the enemy shall be stopped here. Thor leads Balder into Odin’s trophy room and uses Mjolnir to smash open the casket of Odin. With that move, the All-Father is returned to life….
