Thanks for the link, although his review says basically nothing.

> Again, this one says there's no Don Blake. (Thank Goodness)

This is where you (and the reviewer) err.

With no Don Blake, not only does this movie poop on the comic book origins, but it also makes several other mistakes.

Firstly, a god amongst gods is less special than a god amongst mortals.

Secondly, if this movie is a precursor to Thor on Earth (say in a sequel) then the Thor of the first movie is a bragging bully (to deserve banishment to Earth). That means Thor of this movie is no hero. In the event that they totally remove the need for Thor to be banished then it poops over so much continuity that you may as well call it Ultimate Thor.

Everything I have seen so far tells me it has nothing to do with the Mighty Thor. It may end up a decent Thor movie, just not a decent Mighty Thor movie - and thats a shame.

> Sounds pretty good so far, IMHO.

No it sounds like a Lord of the Rings bandwagon jumping, 'Galactus cloud' cop-out that has nothing to do with the Mighty Thor and is simply just Thor.

If you read this month's Marvel spotlight then you will find that uncle Walt drew heavily on Lord of the Rings to inspire his epic run. Walt also rid us of the pestilence that is Don Blake. Did he poop on the legacy of the Mighty Thor?

It makes sense that LOTR would influence Thor as Tolkein was influenced heavily by Norse myth. This stuff doesn't happen in a vaccuum.

I am glad that you like Don Blake. It makes me feel better that someone actually enjoyed what I considered a waste of space since 1972 when I first got started with Thor the comic after being read to about our favorite thunderer in "In the Days of Giants" by my folks as a toddler.

Some of Mighty Thor poops on the mythic Thor according to your analysis.
I think of it as an interpretation but you would have to say poops.
