Fairly predictable given the heads-up teaser in the first issue, but no less enjoyable for it. The writer is wonderfully old school. The Eternals and Deviants have always proved a great source for Thor, being far beyond the likes of Quicksand, Mongose etc. As with Astonishing, the pacing is neither too compacted or deconstructed, with the art not quite up to the standard of the painterly style in Astonishing and Blood Brothers, but still clean, easy on the eye and dynamically composed. I was a bit confused when Thor grasps Virago though - it looks like Thor is about to tear his head off instead a greeting a former one time comrade. Some great classic characters appear, with a decent slugging partner for Thor....but it's not exactly clear why he got his ar$e handed to him.

The continuity notice on the front page proves this book's worth. I think it's Ralph Machio editing, and it shows. Looking forward to 3! \:\-\)

From what I understand, Tutinax is just that tough.

I think this is taking place between Mighty Thor and Fear, so the beating could be chalked up to the injury sustained in the World Tree.

No, the beating is due to the power of his opponent. Thor is not invincible.

Never said he was. Also, according to the book, they were fighting initially in Phastos machine component and that MIGHT have had a part to play.

Why does Thor need an excuse to lose?

I am not making excuses, just stating commentary and speculating based on what was in print.

Thor lost this fight cause Tutinax is an absolute BEAST!!!!!! He is the physically most powerful Deviant there is, capable of killing multiple eternals at once. How many opponents can withstand Thors hammer shots the way Tutinax did and tell Thor that his limbs are more powerful than his and his weak mallet. No reason for an excuse losing a round to this monster does Thor no injustice at all. Hell Thor put up a hell of a fight and although he lost the fight he didn't look like he was close to death which says alot about his durability.

I agree. And you'd think that with the huge success of the Thor movie, with many critics initially saying the movie wouldn't be a success, and that Thor was a B- list character, etc., that Thor would once again start being shown as the powerhouse he really is. Especially in his own book. This underlying, for lack of a better word, "anti-thor" philosophy in Marvel is getting pretty ridiculous. I mean you don't see this kind of thing happening to the Hulk and it's official based on the numbers, Hulk IS a B-list character. Go figure.

Hulk is a b list character!?!?!?! Come on was selling more than anyone was for the longest time. Like anything sales go up and down. I dont think Thor has ever sold the way Hulk has. Even so I wouldn't call either of them B list characters.

i don't think he meant hulk as "B" list character as say moonknight or the like. i think he meant by the sales of comics and the box office. hulk is definitely NOT a B list character.

but i'm also amazed on how thor always seem to get his butt handed to him in so many occasions! i know marvel always do this to thor and then later have thor come back and win the rematch, but it gets tiresome on this method. and yes, most of the time, hulk always seem to smash everyone right from the beginning!

thor did not look good in that fight with the deviant. it looked too easy for him to lose like that. very disappointing.

Marvel does that to all their characters. Its a 5 book series and this is only book 2. I figure befor this series is over Thor and Tutinax should have a real good brawl where everything around them is destroyed and Thor comes out on top.

And Tutinax was just one of his many other Peons.... Now, don't get me wrong- Tutinax is a really powerful strong dude and all, but really saying that he's stronger than Thor and his Hammer- when a couple of Eternals in the past easily floored him with eye beams? I bet they wouldn't be able to do that same trick vs. Thor. However, Dromedan is the ONE that would really give Thor one heck of a match-up. He has almost practically reality warping capabilities (it's like putting together someone with 100 tons level strength, incredible durability (he took a very powerful shot from Thor's hammer and didn't go down), and even a more powerful version of a Omega Level mutant like X-Man that has VAST control over Telepathy, Telekinesis, Pre-Cognition, can control multiple minds at the same time, Astral Projections, fire-Psionic blasts, etc.; plus, he's very intelligent and resourceful. In other words, he's match for even the likes of Thanos as well...

Well aparently Tutinax is more than a match for Thor from what we can tell from issue 2 of this series. Tutinax clearly states he has many times more powerful than Thor and his naked limbs are many times more powerful than Thors with his weak mallet. I am not saying Thot cant beat him but from what I saw he better try a different method next time cause fighting him hand to hand isnt gonna be the way Thor wins. Maybe a godblast and some anti force blasts would do the trick and one giant lightning strike.

Just cause Tutinax sez it don't make it true. Thor has jobbed before. Sadly, Thor will job again. Regarding Thor's status at the top of Marvel's superhero power heirarchy, this comic changes nothing.

Been a couple weeks since I got my comics...

Really? This is a bad showing. Honestly, the way it was playing out, I expected Thor to grasp Mjolnor in the next panel and fry the big oaf.

Tutinax isn't the first to boast while fighting Thor...Herc...Ulick...Creel...to name a few. Thor really looks no worse for wear after the fight, and the only reason he doesn't immediately follow them is to take care of a fallen comrade. This felt like old school Thor to me. I really enjoyed it.
