    Mighty Avenger wasn't bad with Action. Mostly a book retelling the origin that's a combination of what will be in the movie and what was in the Comcs.
    Basically what happened is because the art isn't what everyone liked, the book was canceled. NOW those people who didn't get the book because of the art have READ some of the books and are regretting they didn't pick it up! It's great stories.

    If you look hard enough you can get them at half the suggested price. Tho I can't really afford that either.

    People didn't like Chris Samnee's art in The Mighty Avenger? What's wrong with them? :huh:

    Don't know Corpy. Was probably too simple for their tastes. I know a few people thought it was just a kids book and didn't bother with it.
    HOPEFULLY the trade sales will be big enough to bring it back!

    that was my exact reaction to that statement

    that's kinda what i liked about it, it wasn't necessarily a kid's book but it was entirely kid friendly. i think you need more books like that on the market, solid story telling that keeps it pg

    Nice ending to First Thunder too. Though I wish they would have used a different Artist.

    Um basically the relationship of Jane and Thor. Thor not being able to find his way home via the rainbow bridge. Jane worked at a museum over being a nurse.
    It just reads more like what we've seen in the trailers over what's in the comics.

    I like Blake when people do interesting stuff with him. Having him be affiliated with Doctors Without Borders was a great idea that sadly never got any follow-through. Imagine how cool a comic with Blake running around the world helping people both as himself and as Thor whenever big crises break out could be. But instead we got that one issue where he resurrects the Warriors Three and that's all we ever heard about Doctors Without Borders.

    I'm glad they went the route they did in the film, having a powerless Thor use "Donald Blake" as his earth alias instead of him being a seperate person

    Eh, it works for the condensed movie format. I prefer Don as he is in the comic, though.

    I always thought he was unnecessary, but that's just me

    I liked that in order for Thor to be able to understand the mortal way of thinking, Thor NEEDED Blake or Masterson or Olsen as an anchor, like taming a storm. That's why I loved the Lord of Asgard Arcs.
    Granted he's had warrior's madness before then, but it's not the same.

    Yet what I like about Mighty Avenger is the fact that this version relates to us more than we know. Even without hundreds years of contact.

    The only thing I thought was unnecessary about Blake was the 60-second time limit. Blake or other characters representing Thor's humanity have been the basis for several fantastic stories: I, Whom the Gods Would Destroy, the King Thor Saga, plenty of the '60s and '70s stories, etc. The dichotomy between man and god has always been central to Thor, which is why, for all the greatness of Simonson's alter-ego-less run, those human alter-egos keep coming back.

    Yeah the 60 second time limit is really the only problem I had with Donald Blake.

    I saw Green Hornet (2D) at the movies a few hours and I saw the Thor trailer, it looked even better in theaters.

    I also so the poster for Thor on the wall in the hallway leading to the theaters. It get's the job done, but I'm shocked that it didn't have the title of the movie anywhere on the poster.
