Reply Subj: Saw footage of this a few months ago and was extremely disappointed in the tone of the set up scenes

I don't understand some of the reactions here..
I mean ok, it's not the Thor movie most of us wanted to see but at least it's a slightly different take than the norm and is actually SOMETHING......for us THOR FANS to watch, not UA Hulk vs.. but THOR.

And as far as Thor was when he was younger, we all know he was a brash, arrogant bastard sometimes so this type of scenario with Sif is very plausible.

I'm not saying you specifically Punch but I guess you just can't please some people no matter what you do....

I'm looking forward to buying it when it drops.

    In the early parts of this feature Thor is willing to knowingly take advantage of and claim false victory against the warriors training him.

    Then he threatens an unarmed Sif with a blade when she calls him on it.

    This isn't the very legitimate idea of a youthful Thor with a temper problem - this is a spoiled brat lacking in any sense of honor.

    So the heroes journey for him is to become worthy of the hammer by learning to be NOBLE.

    NO NO NO

    This is lazy writing. Learn the character.

    Both in Marvel and in myth - Thor is always noble.
    What he has trouble with is arrogance and anger.
    More anger in myth and more arrogance in Marvel.

    Making him a spoiled craven prince flies in the face of every tales of Asgard story Marvel has put out.

    To me this is far more egregious an error than a poor power showing.
