Thor #246 Review by (August 21, 2014)
Review: Pretty cool episode starts with the Warriors Three trading quips and ends with Thor clashing with Firelord, sending Kirby Dots flying everywhere, thanks to the magic of John Buscema. Nothing of major importance but a lot of fun.

Comments: Part one of two parts. First appearance of Snaykar the Skulker. Igron was introduced as a pal of Loki’s in #177.


Synopsis / Summary / Plot

Thor #246 Synopsis by Peter Silvestro

The exiled Thor and the Warriors Three are hanging around Jane Foster’s apartment when a news bulletin comes on the television. A revolution is raging in the Latin American nation of Costa Verde; rebels led by El Lobo are seeking to overthrow President Juan Elmirez and they may win because they now have Firelord, the former herald of Galactus, on their side. Thor blames himself for the herald’s being on Earth (#228) so he heads south, taking only Jane as his interpreter…..

In Asgard, an angry Odin metes out punishment to criminals convicted only on the word of his sinister new advisor Igron. Balder the Brave is disgusted by this turn of events but Odin commands him to watch anyway….

Thor and Jane arrive in the capital and fight their way past the guards so the God of Thunder can offer his services to President Elmirez. They head into the jungle but they are spied by guards of the evil El Lobo….

In an Asgardian pub, Balder complains about the dire situation to his friend Hildegard but he is overheard by Snaykar the Skulker, who rushes off to inform Igron….

Thor and Jane are attacked by a band of soldiers but Thor easily batters them around with Mjolnir and even Jane can tackle a tough or two with her judo skills. Suddenly Firelord enters the scene, under the spell of the malevolent Gypsy. The two mighty heroes clash but Thor gains the upper hand as Gypsy’s control over him keeps Firelord from wielding his full power. El Lobo takes Jane hostage so Thor stands down and Gypsy speaks quietly to Thor secretly hypnotizing him with the magic jewel in her headband. Soon both the Thunder God and the herald are under her control….
