Throughout the ages, the gods of the Marvel Universe have been vanishing, their mortal worshippers left in chaos. NOW! the Mighty Thor follows a trail of blood that threatens to consume his past, present and future selves. The only hope for these ravaged worlds lies with the God of Thunder unraveling the gruesome mystery of the God Butcher!

Many Years Ago: Thor is trying to lift Mjolnir in the Great Weapons Hall of Asgard but doesn't succeed.

893 AD: Thor sails over the Baltic Sea. The sailors see a figure in the fog and it turns out to be the God Butcher, following them. They land on the shores of Neva River and Thor asks the people there for their gods. They don't react very friendly but then one god's horse comes down without him, spattered in blood. Thor follows the blood trail, encounters another dead god. Then the God Butcher confronts him and they fight. Thor remembers that, as a child, a god named Dagr went on a killing spree until he was executed by Odin. Thor is haunted by the face of Dagr for a long time afterwards. The fight continues until Thor hits the God Butcher with lightning.

The Present Day: Thor has defeated the God Butcher's servants and swears to find him by following the trail of dead gods.

The first issue of this series was brilliant and after Jason Aaron's disappointing run on his Incredible Hulk series I was happy to see that this series didn't follow that trend. It has also been nice to see a different take in a Thor series and I like how this series so far has been nothing like any other Thor series I've read.PlotThis fight between Thor and the God Butcher from last issue is halted this issue as we go back to Thor's earlier years. This issue sees Thor's first encounter with th...

By Odin's Bulbous Big Toe, I Love This Book. 0

Review Time.Good: This is easily my favorite Marvel NOW title so far and we are two issues into it. Jason Aaron is doing amazing on this series so far. He takes 3 different timelines in a single book and mixes them so well, granted this issue stayed in mostly 1 era. We start with cocky young Thor attempting to lift Mjolnir and we get a bit of humor which Aaron is good and even does so in Thor's own special way with the Odin * insert adjective followed by random body part here*. We get to see how...

God Class Thor 0

Jason Aaron continues with the Thor tale across time, focusing this one on past Thor, and pretty much laying out the framework for this arc.

So I'm assuming we'll get mostly a full issue of present Thor next issue, followed by future Thor for #4 and then some kind of full split story or something to wrap up the arc with the fifth issue.I ...
