    Do you mean Gillen? I know what you mean, but the way Thor is portrayed these days, he just doesn't dazzle you like the Hulk or Superman. Yes, his battle with Surfer was pretty good. Matched him blow for blow. Fraction gave Thor an attitude that he didn't take any crap, but the big picture is that Thor doesn't give us this powerhouse awe anymore. I don't know, maybe it's just me. Maybe I'm reading to much into it. I just don't get that feeling anymore when I read Thor.

Some names are just to similar for my mind to tell apart.

I think they could do more with that but at the same time Marvel has treated him as a power. In Secret Invasion when he was involved everyone was like crap and just the presence of a fake Thor nearly turned the tables in Civil War. Would I like to see Thor beating a foe down. Sure. I like a beat down as much as anyone but in all honesty I miss comic fights more than anything.

Not these one sided beat downs we get anymore but fights. Like back in the day we would have Blaastar and Thor fighting for a good part of the book and still going at it. It shows that both are tough and if a side won it seems like it was an actual fight. I think when a guy like Hulk just starts beating people left and right easily it makes it uninteresting. I think a bone to confirm Thor's place would be nice from time to time. Like maybe he is doing some godly buisness that the Avengers or some other group does not want him to be and he beats them easily while not trying to even hurt them. Something like that would be nice.

I do think Thor has had some good stories. I think Fraction has started the trend of going downhill and that stinks. But even his stories tend to build fine and then just collapse on themselves. So I guess we hope for something. JIM is good and I still would love to see Gillen on the main Thor book. I think he is one of the few writters that seems to make the gods grand in feel and also in deed. His Thor was closer to what I remember as classic Thor than I have seen in a while. And when you get a taste of that you want it again.

Look Raist bunnies...
