Starting with Journey into Mystery #83 1962 all the way to present day, what are your 5 absolute favorites starring the god of thunder? I'll get started naming 2 of mine.

Thor 125-130 'The Coming of Hercules'. This story brings Hercules to mainstream marvel and has Thor and Herc's second epic fight. Thor is stripped of half his power and suffers a humiliating defeat to Herc. To make matters worse, Thor has to end up fighting for Herc after Pluto tricks Hercules into taking his place in the netherworld. This leads to a truly epic fight against the hordes of Pluto. This was the beginning of Thor and Herc's friendship. Thor also battles an evil Vizier who steals the Odinpower from Odin. This storyline had everything that made Thor the noblest and fiercest warrior in all the 9 worlds.

Thor 281-300 The Celestial Saga. Eternals, Deviants, and Evil Eye of Odin telling truths and half truths, whats not to like? The first Thor vs Odin fight takes place here along with Zeus vs Zuras. Gilgamesh and Thor slug it out on a Celestial's starship and Gilgamesh finds out a hammerless Thor is a dangerous Thor. Did I mention Odin/Destroyer vs 4TH Host Celestial slobberknocker?

What are your favorite Thor stories?

Just 5? Sheesh!

Tough to narrow it down to five, and the list may change depending on the day you ask me, but in no particular order...

Thor #117-128: The introduction of Ragnarok and the Warriors Three from the Tales of Asgard back-up. There was an entertaining quest featuring Thor, Loki, Balder, and the Warriors Three all together, and a glimpse at an end of the gods that may or may not come to pass.

Thor #125-130: Thor vs. Hercules, and the origin of their friendship.

Thor #154-157: The introduction of Mangog. Thor as the underdog against an incredible force has been done several times, but I think this one is my favorite.

Thor #378-382: Simonson's swan song on the title. Thor's new battle armor, his battle with Jormungand and then Hela, while Asgard faces off against the Frost Giants. Good stuff, but considering who I'm talking about, that goes without saying.

Thor #387-389: Alone Against the Celestials. Just a fun, outer space romp with Thor up against

And there are still so many other good ones to choose from!
