    No Hickman. His portrayal of Thor was superb. His battle to the death with Hyperion and Starbrand against the Beyonders was moving and epic.

    Also Thor in Infinity was brilliant. The battles throughout but especially his final battle with Thanos.

Two things:

1. None of that was done it the Thor comic. But I agree Hickman did write a good Thor.

2. Its much easier to write an 'epic' when you kill a character off. Problem is you can't really get away with that trick more than once in a run otherwise its a 'cry wolf' situation.

Agreed. Tbf the portrayal in Infinity etc wasn't a death. Just a shame he never got a full run on Thor. Think he would have been great.
