Aside from a single issue within the Thor's book, or possibly a crossover with IM or an Avenger book, the clone should be a short lived very dead piece of something. The Thor shown in the first 3 issues of this new series would wipe the "aberration of genetic code" from existence.

Marvel would be telling us that insignificant little humans can duplicate something approaching a bona fide god's power, and that'd upset me.

Given that Tony is always going to have the best available components in his armor, and he's not about to have a hand in something he can't take down himself (like Pym's Ultron) I'd reckon that the absolute trashing he just got at Thor's whim do not bode well for Clunky McOdin. He serves no purpose in the MU...unless, of course, Thor suddenly has an overwhelming urge for some toast.

As for his being a Cyborg ripoff...well, you can't tell me that Steel isn't Iron Thor.

HEH I've always thought of Cyborg being a Deathlok ripoff.
