Well guys I think it is time for me to emerge from the closet. When it comes to Don Blake I am with UK on this one (although as usual UK is kinda "forthright" in his presentation!)I don't have time for the lengthy analysis the subject deserves, but suffice to say I have never viewed Blake as a lame plot device designed to resemble Supes kryptonite. I have always loved the potential tension in Thor's imposed duality. I know Blake's individuality "died" as the series progressed but I for one always saw an incredible potential in the idea of an at times, uneasy fusion between man and god. I think this kind of thinking was why the "Reigning" grabbed me incredibly as a plot. How did Thor's character develop into a benovolent though suffocating dictator?

Maybe I am just fascinated by incarnational thinking. In any case I recognise that to be pro-Blake is something of a minority sport but hey its all about opinions.

Personally, I would prefer if the movie script were sticking with the new comic scripts a bit more. I don't want to see JIM 83 used in any way shape or form, but I would like the new series portrayal that Ragnarok happened and the gods all went away, but lived on the hearts of men. Could have Blake tormented by nightmares of war, giants, dark gods and an urge to seek out something that had crashed to earth in mid US or if they have to nod to JIM, then a cave in Norway.

I'm pro Blake for this one. The Thor script they are reviewing isn't a Marvel Thor from all descriptions. It'll probably be good but too different to be a boost in Thor comic sales.
