Thor's main concern in this batch of stories is his love for the mortal Jane Foster. Carried over from the stories reprinted in Vol. 1, Odin continues to be betwixt and between about Thor's obsession with a mortal woman he cannot have. Loki knows a good opportunity when he sees one, and in many of these stories we see the evil half-brother of Thor use Odin's simmering dissatisfaction with his "most favored" son to insinuate dark ideas and grievous punishments into the mind of Odin the all-father.
