Thunderstrike #2 (2011)
Thunderstrike #3 (2011)
Mann's claim to be a descendant of the gods was never proven.
When Steve Rogers gave the Thunderstrike mace to Kevin Masterson, son of the original Thunderstike, and Kevin called upon its power, Mann detected a new energy source to collect. He sent his private strike force to retrieve it which they did after a brief battle with Kevin and his Asgardian protector, Gruenhilda. Mann connected the mace to his Mysticator, a generator that supplied him with God Force, and donned his golden armor which filled him with the power of living god as intruders broke into his home to reclaim the mace. Mann fought Thunderstrike, blasting him through the chest with an energy beam that seemingly killed him, but once Thunderstrike transformed back into Kevin, his wounds were healed. Mann then pursued Kevin to take back the Thunderstrike mace, but was unable to do so because Mangog, summoned to Earth by the Mysticator, interrupted their battle. Mangog questioned both combatants as to whether or not they were gods, and Mann was the only one to acknowledge this claim with pride. He soon discovered his error as Mangog announced he detested the gods and devoured Mann, armor and all.
