You can't do that with Thor really, showing how big an event TA for the characters was, because out of all Avengers, the alien invasion wasn't a big game changer for him. For Selvig it was. Thor has to deal with his brother and what Loki did, but for Selvig it was a bit more. Being possesed by a god should be adressed.
Yeah, and SHIELD should be the ones to adress it. After working wih them on the tesseract and losing his mind while on the clock they now just let him go crazy and naked at Stonehenge ?
That's how I want these things adressed, not played for laughs.
