I hate this comment section. This is the second time, my comment just gets eaten, with no wayx of retreating it!

Let's try again...

Whoa, a slight retcon! This issue mostly takes place during Avengers #3, where the Avengers (Thor, Iron Man, Giant-Man and Wasp) tackle Namor and the Hulk, and vastly expands the fight between the Thunderer and Hulky. In this story, Thor describes, how he practically has the Hulk in a tough spot, before getting distracted, implying, that he IS stronger, though only barely. Of course, he cheated right at the start: "Daddy, I wanna fight this strong guy. Can I remain Thor for 5 minutes without my hammer?"

"Of course, my son, here. Now look out, this means, your hammer won't be enchanted for these five minutes. Don't carelessly throw him at your enemy, he might break it." - "...ooops."

Of course we don't learn the answer to who is stronger...after all, we know the end result of the fight from Avengers #3. But we do learn, that the Hulk now wants to defeat Thor for sure...well, at least in this mag, in his own he has other problems.

Tales of Asgard also promises to be interesting these next few issues, because we finally get to the most interesting person in Asgard: Loki. This also means: First appearance of the Frost Giants of Jotunheim! Only...they're not frosty, yet. Laufey, king of the frost giants, is very interesting, in that he is mostly portrayed as a warrior similar to the Asgardians: He fights valiantly, is strong, and doesn't yield, no matter the odds. When his man want to flee, he only agrees, if they regroup at his castle to attack again. The only really despicable act was towards his son, Loki: Because he wasn't born a giant, he put him into a bag.

"Loki...I sense a lot of evil from this name..." - "It's a name! I, for my part, have no problem adopting the child of the guy I just slayed! Let me celebrate by talking about the son I already have and whom I will always love more than this child, who wasn't even loved by his own parents."

Very good issue!


Who will win this round?


Don't think the hulk will win this one.
