It's time to face facts, true believers – the '90s were awesome. The pouches were plentiful, the costumes were impractical, and Marvel Universe dentists made a fortune correcting damages caused by perpetually gritted teeth. Thanks to the power of nostalgia, though, what would once be considered extremely embarrassing can now be called extremely awesome!
With that in mind, we've pulled a Marvel comic from the not-so-modern era and broken it down, one bodacious fact at a time! This week we're singling out THOR #482 by Roy Thomas, Stewart Johnson, Keith Pollard, and M.C. Wyman. Here's "Long Day's Journey Into Mystery" by the numbers!
29 attacking Kronans
15 characters, only 5 pairs of pants
7 different non-human groups: Kronans, New Immortals, Asgardians, the Godpack, Rigelians, Ani-Mutants, and New Men
6 pop culture references: "Long Day’s Journey Into Night," "The Rocky Horror Pictures Show," the Beastie Boys, the Rolling Stones, "Monster Mash," and "Alien"
4 instances of Blitziana calling Thor "Thunder-Britches"
1 totally jealous God of Thunder
