    Another Earth destroyed by the Masters of Evil and another hero brought low. This time it’s Thor, who soon enough finds a new destiny and a new path to heroism in ‘Avengers Forever’ #8.

    The Multiversal Avengers find their Thor, albeit one who carries its own trauma and found a different path. Like other Avengers in the series, this issue features a mash-up of Thor with another classic hero. While Avengers Forever has been more miss than hit, this issue was surprisingly strong. I think it speaks to how well Aaron knows Thor that he finds a way of forging a new story and path for the character.

    Both Avengers titles are on slow-burn right now, introducing new characters and variants that are admittedly cool, but somewhat lacking in connective tissue.

    This story is reminiscent of those come to terms movies in how a hero reaches a pit of despair but battles back to be a better version of themselves. It was a great break to give Thor arguably a more harnessed power without his beloved hammer. But like any pet with a heart, Thor needs his hammer, and his hammer needs him!
