          Ymir just mopped the floor with King Thor. Although the battle occurred off-panel, it clearly wasn't a contest for Ymir. A bruised and semi-conscious Thor admitted that Ymir was out of his league. He had to be carried off the field by Ms. Marvel, because Ymir still wanted a piece of him.

            Oh, and Bendis added a new property to the Twilight Sword. It can shrink. Why Ymir would choose to shrink the sword down so that it can be wielded by human-sized characters is beyond me. He should have just kept the sword at its original size, and actually held on to the weapon.

              The issue was better than I expected. It has the typical Bendis dialog, but the art and the overall story are decent. I don't know why Thor showed veneration towards Ares, though. Fellow god or not, he's been nothing but a pain in Thor's ass.

                And what's this about Thor taking the sword back to Asgard, when he just said that it can't remain in Earth's dimension? Um... ASGARD is in Earth's dimension.

                  It was interesting to see Osborn back down from a fight with Thor, even with Sentry as his lapdog.

          I know its an old and oft quoted request but it really would help for soem clarity around the Odin force. It is obvious that Thor's version is much diminished but lets have some form of statement to help make sense of things.

        Skurgey, I don't think that will happen unless someone outside forces JMS to do it. For him it is an occassionaly useful prop but that is all. He really doesn't want the weight of continuity or comparison to inhibit or inform his story anymore than absolutely necessary to his particular yarn. This is the strength and weakness of the run IMO.

    On reflection I think you are spot on Punch. That seems to be the game plan alright.

    Incisive pit of insight on your part there Punch. If Ricky Hatton could read fights like you read comics he might be in better shape today.


Brother, I knew Ricky was in trouble the minute he brought Floyd Sr. into camp. His teaching skills are fine but I would never trust a man who cornered against his own son. Sr doesn't have to corner Jr. or even get along with him but going against your own blood like that is bad karma in my book. Billy Graham may not be as technically gifted as Floyd Sr. but he understands something Mayweather doesn't. The fighter is the star of the show, not the trainer. When you have someone as devoted as Graham, you don't chuck them to the side. You ask for outside help, you add to the team, but you don't throw devotion like Billy's away. I don't think he would have beaten Pacquiao but it would have been a better fight and years from now he would feel better about it in his heart win or lose.
