Pantheon Press: The Mighty Thor #4 Review

1455724301328There is nothing, but fantastic things to say about The Mighty Thor #4. The war between the elves has come to a conclusion (for now), the trial of Freyja has commenced and it seems like Volstagg may have found out the new Thor’s identity. The climax for this issue comes at the end when a fight, one that is long overdue, finally begins. This issue is another perfect blend between Jason Aaron’s script, Russell Dauterman’s art, and Matthew Wilson’s colors.
The war between the elves comes to an end not with a bang, but with a spell. Malekith pretends that he is willing to begin peace talks with Queen Aelsa, but lures her into a sealed room with just him and her mages. Her mages (all of them) are actually Amora the Enchantress in disguise. Amora casts a spell on Queen Aelsa of the Light Elvesthe enchantress forcing her to become King Malekith’s betrothed. This is the second time Amora has made her appearance in the pages of The Mighty Thor, but there is another calling herself the Enchantress in the pages of Illuminati. There is no clear indicator as to which is the real Enchantress, but the other is more than likely Amora’s sister, Lorelei (see Walter Simonson’s run of Thor and Loki: Agent of Asgard for more on Lorelei).
Meanwhile back on Asgardia, Odin begins the trial of his wife and queen, Freyja. A full scale riot broke out amongst the citizens of the Ten Realms because of Odin’s farce of a trial. Volstagg, the Lion of Asgard, watches the riot and makes a remark that leads one to believe that he is aware Jane Foster now wields Mjolnir by saying “Where is she? Where is the only one who can save us? Where is Jane Foster?” Not too sure what a frail mortal could do during a riot between mythological beings, but the goddess of thunder could do a lot. The issue ends on an exciting note when Thor strikes Odin with thor vs odinMjolnir and tells him in not so poetic mortal speech, “Today my hammer comes for your face!” This line, along with many others, and her inability to roll over for Odin’s decrees is what continues to make Jane Foster the perfect successor for Thor. Thor (Odinson) didn’t always accepted what Odin decreed (see classic issues like Thor # 203 and 478) which is why Jane opposing Odin is perfectly in rhythm as to what a Thor would do. A fight between these two is the next logical step in the progression of the story and will certainly have an interesting outcome regardless which of the two wins.
Overall, The Mighty Thor #4 is another amazing addition to the legacy of Thor and highly recommended. Dauterman’s art combined with Wilson’s colors makes this issue visually stunning. Aaron’s script for this issue is stellar. He continues to write Thor in the same vain as the Odinson had been written for hundreds of issues making it a perfect read for a fan of Thor regardless of how long someone had been reading the series.
