That's one convoluted origin story. I'm just going to ignore the bit about a sliver of Mjolnir spontaneously splintering from the hammer and the notion that Puddlegup is worthy.

THANK YOU!!!!

WTF? Marvel just keeps pushin me futher and futher away. It's getting to be the point where I'm goin to drop them altogether. It may seem trivial for such a small story. And to be frank I'm interested in where it will go.

Having said that however they keep trying to puch this idea that Mjolnir, and such aren't as strong as once believed. StormBreaker in the Secret War trash, Mjolnir "hitting something harder than itself"( I'm willing to let this go because simultaneously JMS stressed the only reason Mjolnir was broken in the past was, as I've always said, through extenuating circumstances) Now a chip off Mjolnir, in this side story?

Marvel has me hangin on by the very tip of my fingers. They best start doin right by Thor and his history or I'm done.

Yeah, that confounded me at first, but then I realized it was a non-continuity story (so far as we know, anyways) and then it wasn't so bad.

But for non-continuity, even that was convoluted.

I think this is supposed to be a fun, light-hearted alternate universe or non-canon story. Or something. (Especially given the status of the Inhumanoids in 'War of Kings' and stuff)

I wouldn't get worked up about this too much.

But I do agree the chip off of Mjolnir is a bit of a stretch.

Okay, that's two in a row we've agreed on. Cut it out already and get back to sighing at my negativity.

Other than the sliver of Mjolnir thing (which is a stretch to be sure), Puddlegup's origin is pretty much as it was when Walt wrote it, just expanded a bit. He was a human that loved football that got turned into a frog. The only thing added was fleshing out his human life a bit and the sliver from Thor's hammer.

Walt portrayed him until the sliver thing. I kind of got the vibe that Puddlegump was going to be the Froggy Captain America when Thor left.

It may not make sense, I hate Thunderstrike, Thor Girl, Dargo or whatever mullet Thor was called, but I love me some Frog of Thunder!!!

Restores my faith in the comics industry. Simply brilliant!

Oh, I think it's adorable and nice looking too. I just think Puddleglump's origin is just a touch convoluted, mostly the splintered Mjolnir thing. But then again, I suppose the more I think of it, the more it kinda makes sense, sorta. Hurm.

But that's not going to stop me from enjoying this, of course.

Heh. I pointed that out to Chris and he replied;

Look, if there can be two cartoonists named "Chris Eliopoulos" out there, this is plausible. Maybe there's something more? \:\)

So I figured it out. Simon Walterson (Throg) is the original mortal and Simon Walters (Beta Ray) is a mortal construct made by Odin, similar to the Donald Blake/Kieth Kincaid relationship. As Walterson isn't going to be human again anytime soon, there was no need to create an entirely different name for Walters, as he could easily slip in a pick up on that identity should he (Bill) decide to.

Now we just need to figure out where Walton Simons fits in. ;\)
