All of asgard is dead and Thor is as usual getting his ass kicked. Err what exactly do you find so compelling about this wash rinse and repeat writing with Ultimate Thor. You liked it because he got his ass kicked with style? Call me crazy but I'd prefer a Thor that KICKED ASS WITH STYLE or WON LOOKING UGLY!!!
Not just Hickman, but I cannot remember a time where Ultimate Thor won against a credible opponent without some big question marks over the battle. Usually its like his appearance here. He is played up to be all-powerful, swings the hammer a few times, puts on an impressive light show, and then gets his butt kicked.
