Cool interview. I like how the wardrobe of the show affected their actual dressing habits.

@outside_85: Odin was scared for Thor. He knew that if the Serpent rose his son would have to die, THAT is why he was so angry at Thor for wanting to protect Earth, He would rather have the Earth die than see his son get killed. A lot of fathers share that same sentiment, except none are like Odin and have the power to act on it. He wasn't being stupid, he was just being a father. He has never been a man to outwardly show his emotions, but he shows he loves his son in other ways.

When have you ever read a comic where Odin said, "no, I won't listen to you because you're a woman"?? or "no, I don't want women fighting beside me"?? Never. He isn't sexist at all, he's just hardset on his perspective and ideas. He fights with anyone who goes against what he believes, regardless of their sex. He isn't just an "average guy", he is one of the strongest Skyfathers in existence, and a god among gods, he's outlived stars and fought in thousands of wars, he's also renowned for his wisdom. If he disagrees with someone it's because he has every right to.

He's also absurdly progressive so I'm unsure where you're pulling the sexist angle from. When Loki became a woman he didn't make any fuss of it, every time we seem him interact with Lady Sif or Valkyrie he treats them exactly as he treats any of the Warriors Three or even Thor.

When he left to guard his brother "until the end of time" it was so he wouldn't return and unleash Jörmungandr on midgard again, that was extremely self-sacrificing of him. He only came back because he said that Cur had rehabilitated, and Cur acted exactly like Odin said he would and never stepped out of line once.

If you want to comment on the stupidity of a character trusting someone they ought not to, what about Freyja putting the future of Asgard into the hands of an evil Loki?? It even shows that because of her Asgard falls in the future when he becomes "King Loki". So no.

Matt Fraction was doing a great job of writing her as the All-Mother but Aaron turned her into a petulant, bitter housewife. Odin was never portrayed as sexist until Aaron wanted to make him an antagonist and pulled the chauvinist BS angle out of thin air because the book only serves to foster paper thin one-note cliche characterizations of characters.

Can you point to a page where either Odin was portrayed by Aaron as sexist or when Freyja accused him of being sexist during this Thor run? She accused him of being a despot. (Which he is... Surely someone who is willing to destroy a planet to protect his son is rather despotic.) But none of his actions in the latest run had anything to do with her being a woman. It had to do with him being pissed that someone took his son's birthright, and he was willing to go to extremes to put things right.

I'm also not sure where she emasculated Odin. She disagreed with him. And was vocal about her disagreement. But I'd hardly considering anything she did "emasculating."

Because Odin is the King of Asgard. It isn't a title earned, it's his birthright. Just as Bor was king and Thor is destined to be King. Asgard is a traditional monarchy not a democracy, and the King will rule. You're also glossing over the fact that he left his title to three women while he was gone, how sexist of him eh? It's also not the council of all-mothers that were upset by Odin's return, just Freyja who seems like she's deeply entrenched in delusions of grandeur at this point. You also should realize that she has no claim to the throne whatsoever beyond Odin allowing her rule, she isn't even Asgardian, or Thor's real mother. It makes no sense why she feels so entitled.

Perhaps she's tired of the rule simply being by birthright? It's not like kings have never been overthrown ever. The concept isn't exactly foreign. So saying it makes no sense is kinda silly.

Man that ending bothered me to no end... When it officially airs, I'm going to rant a lot.

That's like the worst they could possibly do...

I dunno, imagine the old cheap 80s halloween costume. Just a plastic Red Tornado mask and a shirt with a picture of Red Tornado on the front. That would be worse. Well maybe a tie...

Well, it doesn't look like half the city was destroyed by a black hole... so that's good. Wells/Thawne hanging out like nothing happened. Not so good. Joe sitting vigil over an unconscious Barry... Also not so good. Sweet, but not so good.

@comicsrhealthy: Yeah, I'm wondering the same thing. I feel a lot better about it. I hope this wasn't just a lucky pic.

About Thea. Really really cool Speedy suit. Though I hate how they put eye make-up all around her eyes under the mask. It bugs me because whenever they take off the mask, the make-up's magically gone. (and what's holding on the mask (in the story anyway, in real life it's really nice effects adhesive)?

Black Panther's was already announced.

Where? Do you have a link?

Well, there wasn't a press release, but during an interview about the hip-hop variants, Axel Alonso said Here:

"So there will be about 55-60 covers. All-New Marvel Now! is a campaign where there are new #1s across the board – from Spider-Man to Squirrel Girl to stuff we haven’t announced yet, like Black Panther. What’s been released so far is just the head of the spear."

Wah? I enjoy Spider-Gwen, but the Gwen Stacy obsession is really silly. Also, hello? What about Lady Deadpool!
