Agreed. We are getting tyr, don't really NEED another not necessary brother

I have been saying this for months. I believe that Balder will get mentioned, and the reason for his absence is because he is already dead, thus leading up to ragnarok and surtur for thor 3.

I'm a big fan of Simonson's run, yes Balder was alot more awesome then but "outshining Thor" is pushing it.
Seriously. I never was a fan of Balder. Not gunna lie. In any of the runs, Simonson's runs included, whenever Balder came on, I would literally say "uhhhhhhhh" and just skim through it. I don't care for Balder either. I am just trying to guess the reason for his absence, if there is one, other than the fact that they simply may have not choosen to use him.

I am not sure I agree with that too much
