MARVEL NOW – Thor: God of Thunder

After we found out that Jason Aaron and Esad Ribic were WORTHY we now have an offical title for the new Thor book. Thor: God of Thunder

In an interview with Newsarama Aaron said that there will be three versions of Thor that he will explore.

“This first story is an epic tale that plays out over the course of thousands of years. So we spend time with young Thor in the Viking age — the young, hotheaded god of the Vikings, who loves to come down to Midgard and get into trouble,” explained Aaron. “In the present, we see Thor the Avenger on a journey that takes him to the far corners of space, interacting with all sorts of new space gods and wondrous new locations. And then we also see old King Thor, who’s the last king of Asgard, thousands of years in the future, where something has gone horribly, horribly wrong.”

Tying these different eras of Thor together is a brand new villain named Gorr the God Butcher. Aaron went on to describe Gorr as “a serial killer of gods. He’s a guy with a serious axe to grind against all immortal beings in the cosmos, and he’s going around doing his best to kill them all off, one at a time, as brutally as possible.”

  1. Thor is a difficult character to write and not every Thor scribe has been able to handle that well. I’m hoping Jason Aaron can.

    Apart from the god butcher sounding a bit like a Desaak rip off – I like the sound of the storyline.

    Sounds just a little like some of the Thor fanfic that I’ve written.

    As an Aussie sci-fi writer: I’ve written a solid collection of Marvel (espec Thor) fan fiction, why not check it out?
