    Quote:
    In defense of JMS, I prefer the Aesir and Asgard being "SUPER- Medieval-ville". It returned Thor to the original inspiration that Stan drew from when he created Thor in the first place: VIKING GODS. I never liked the "tech" crap that Kirby injected into Asgard.


To each his own I suppose. I felt Kirby hit the right mix of incorporating his sci-fi looking tech into the visuals to prevent Thor from looking like pretty much every other uninspired, generic looking pseudo-ancient/medieval take on mythological gods that was out there. Not to mention I think you're overemphasizing Stan's role over Kirby's in Thor's initial development IMO.
