in most of Thor tales, even in the Tales of Asgard Thor has nearly always been portrayed as the embodiment of nobility who gets a little head strong at times. Yet, in the Ages of Thunder trilogy we get a Thor who is in a way a bit more primal or a least less hesitate to unleash his divine wrath upon you. Would anybody else like to see more aventures relating to this version of Thor? Or at the very least a one-shot that has him somehow crossing over with some of Thor's current foes and maybe being less civil toward them? Maybe an Ages of Thunder Thor vs. Hulk for instance or RHulk?

thoughts?

I don't really care about the interaction with the rest of the Marvel Universe but I did enjoy the flavor of both the Ages of Thunder One Shots and the original Tales of Asgard.

What you said in the post below about Thor being occasionally caught off guard when transitioning between Asgard and Marvel's Midgard was very accurate. Asgard, Niffelheim and the lands of the Muspel, Jotun,Alf, etc. are so rich and fulll of challenges that would all be powerhouses on earth why worry about Hulk & co?

I also like the headstrong younger Thor who isn't afraid to pass judgement on what is going on around him as a counter point to the current wiser older model. Frankly, I didn't think Thor was all that wrong in the Reigning or Ages of Thunder. In the former - those despots were killing a lot more people than Doom ever did and in the latter, Odin and the rest of the Aesir were behaving like jerks.

I'm working on a series of non-marvel stories about the Nine Worlds. So that tells you where my heart is as far as the milieu I like to see him in. When I heard the movie was primarily in Asgard I was a very happy camper. If Thor left Earth alone for two or three years I wouldn't mind.

See the problem to having it feellike Ages is the stories in those three books were from actual myth, and Fraction adapted them FANTASTICALLY, but there are so many myths they can do that with no matter who the writer is.
IF you just use the title to cover the many different timelines from past to future that could be done.
We never saw how Magni Grew up, what happened after King Thor returned to his time-line if it still exists?, What was Beta Ray Bill's life like BEFORE he came to earth?

All kinds of stories can be covered in a book like Ages of Thunder.

Yes. I've been reading "The Norse Myths" by Kevin Crossley-Holland and "Nordic Gods and Heroes" by Padraic Colum. Very enjoyable and it's nice to see that Thor is a no-nonsense type of god, rather than the "super hero" corner Marvel has painted him into.

Ages of Thunder is a far more superior characterization of Thor. The Thor I grew up loving was super powerful, liked to let everyone know about it, and could back it up. He was constantly at odds with Odin for his brashness and unwillingness to just do what he was told. He eventually found out there was more to his Father's motives than just trying to control him, but the journey to get there was a long one.

I'd buy 2 or 3 copies per month if Ages of Thunder was a continuous series..lol:)
