Thor #3 Review by (July 18, 2018)

Review: Now there's an epic last page reveal.... The story continues and eventually we'll have the heroes facing Malekith who vanishes from this five-years-and-counting story arc for months at a time. But it's a fairly comical ride, with the crazy wedding and Thor's “death,” so things are good for now.

Synopsis / Summary / Plot

Thor #3 Synopsis by Peter Silvestro

There is a wedding in Niffleheim: Hela, Goddess of Death is marrying Balder the Brave, with proud father Loki giving away the bride and Thori as the flower girl....

Earlier the proceedings were less peaceful: Thor was fighting his vicious nephew Fenris Wolf. Loki and Tyr, brothers, were attempting to kill one another. Hela was challenging Balder (and Karnilla) to combat to decide the rulership of Hel. Skurge was waiting to see who would come out on top before choosing sides. And Thori, confused, decided to murder everyone and sort it out later. Defeating Fenris, Thor brought the quarrels to a halt. Balder advised all to start working together to battle Sindr, Queen of Cinders, whose armies are on their way. The heroes couldn't stop bickering so Loki made a suggestion....

As the wedding proceeds, Thor realizes that the dead of Niffleheim will not be enough to defeat Sindr, they need the Einherjar, the warriors of Valhalla—but they don't know how to get there. Thor has a suggestion, one which even Loki balks at: Loki must kill Thor. So after some argument, Loki does the deed, stabbing Thor with a magic dagger. “Ah. It's not...what it looks like. Except I suppose it probably is.” Thor arrives at the gates of Valhalla where the Valkyries are suspicious, smelling Loki's magic about him....

The wedding continues but is brought to a halt by Hela's lover—Thanos....
