Thor God of Thunder #15
The hunt continues and Malekith proves to be quite the challenge for this group to catch. Since the minute Frigga put this League of Realms together, it has been a train wreck waiting to happen. All hate each other yet come together for a single goal and singular hatred of Malekith. Jason Aaron puts them to the test and this doesn’t look to get any better for them.
I find this issue to be very impressive in regards to emphasizing the type of person Thor has become. Any person who isn’t familiar with this Thor would easily assume him to be the same brute with an inflated ego, but that hasn’t been for a long while. Here you see just what he has learned over the years, from experience and those closest to him. It makes a lot of sense given the type of portrayal you see of Thor in the Avengers books. Showing so much humility that you find his efforts to make this league work understandable.
From the exotic fairy gardens of Alfheim to the frozen mountains of Jotunheim, where giants dwell it all looked visually stunning to say the least. And the narrations as usual adds to that feeling of this being an epic tale.
A solid issue of Thor God of Thunder. Being the third part there has been a lot of progress since the League of Realms formed. You have to appreciate that Jason Aaron has not dragged on this chase for Malekith to the point where this becomes folly. The confrontation between them is inevitable and hopefully the next issue pushes a bit further to see one side actually start to take control of this fight. The League has suffered one loss, tragic, but very well may be the kick they need to really start to work together when not drunk.
