Subj: Not quite like Galactus. More like what Doomsday was to early 90s Superman, Mangog is to Thor.

Besides his image on the cool cover? This is proving to be a Dark Horse mini series...

Thunderstrike #4 of5

A thoroughly enjoyable penultimate chapter.

Adam Mann's fate was laughable - as in, 'looks good on him'. Or is that IN him? ;\) 'Course if he IS the son of a god then Marvel will spit him back out sometime down the road.

Grunny was great as was the A-Team's response time. Though THOR should have made his own separate entrance!

Kevin's is growing up fast and his new TS look awesome. Makes sense he would think a mask is best too. He delivered the funniest line: "I THINK I HEAR MY MOTHER CALLING." \:D

Unfortunately, don't know that much about MANGOG to worry as many here probably are. Can anyone offer any Readers Digest snippet beyond his Wiki recap of him. What makes him so scary to Grunny? His rep makes him to Asgard like Galactus to Earth, right? Whats his biggest claim to fame?

Curious if there is any connection to any real world mythical uber entity. Is it just a coincident that the name sounds so similar to Magog, DC's mythical uber entity [know nada about him too].

Still missing my brother...

Initially, he was basically physically unstoppable. No one in Asgard, short of Odin can outright stop him (well, maybe the Destroyer and Kurse can, not sure). But Thor can NOT match him in a pure physical combat. Thor can fight him, of course, he is the hero of the title, after all, but whenever Mangog appears, Thor is always at a disadvantage, ALWAYS. But, Dan Jurgen wrote a story where Mangog was watered down, he became Thanos' lackey (which was retconned to be a clone of Thanos, BAH!). Thor managed to finally beat Mangog physically by unleashing anti-force blast down the monster's throat...but that was after Mangog spread his terror on several worlds under Thanos' leash. Mangog is said to be the embodiment of a billion-billion beings, which is a perfect example of a hyperbolical statement (like how hulk is the strongest there is, or unlimited strength...tell that to Zeus, hah). It seems, Tom DeFalco has once again restored Mangog to the height of his power, which is an unstoppable beast. I will pick this book up, and search for back issues, just for the awesomeness oozing out of the picture you posted.
