*Asked to comment on upcoming projects, Straczynski talked about the upcoming “Thor” series from Marvel.

“It’s going to be Asgard in Oklahoma.”

The series will see the fabled land of the gods plunked into the flat, tranquil planes of the southern state, and the comedy of manners that ensues once the local people adopt the Asgardians and try to interact with them on a day-to-day basis, navigating the clash of cultures when gods and hapless Southern mortals come together.

“Imagine Oklahoma: flat-flat-flat-flat-flat-ASGARD!-flat.”

Straczynski described the city’s arrival with a farmer walking up and knocking on the gates of Asgard. An irate Thor opens peers his head out to see what he wants. The farmer tells him that they’ve landed on his land, and they can’t have a whole city dropped in the middle of his property. Thor grunts, summons thunder and lightning, and proceeds to lift Asgard off the farmer’s land – by ten feet, hovering just high enough for people to walk and drive under.

Straczynski also added that Thor would not be speaking in “thees” and “thous”, since he never understood why a Norse god would speak in Middle English. In this series, Thor would speak in a kind of formal English of antiquity, not unlike Aragorn from “Lord Of The Rings”. *

wtf?

This sounds pretty funny. But shouldn't they set this in upper Michigan or Minnesotta where all the Swedes settled. My great grandfather apparently spoke swedish as a first language ( or so my un-reliable mother has told me ). Would be funny to see decendents of swedish ex-patriates face to face with their old gods.

That would be awesome man. Being swedish and a former Minnesotan myself, I would kill to read Thor being set there.

My family heritage on both my mom and dad's side is mainly Swedish.

I always 'wanted' to like Thor more but he never seemed to have a personality. If I was writing for Thor I would make him more human and less of a predictable characature of a God gone mad.

The thees and thous never made much sense to me either. I like ol' Thor, but I think a little goes along way and he's easy to do badly.

I liked Thor as a frog.

He should also grow the beard back.

wow

Swedish meatball eating Thor....

Hell lets just make Odin a pie baker and Sif a hooker.

Loki a pimp and Hemidel however his name is spelled a toll booth operator....

Wow.... truly a new comic...

The epic that went south Thor.

I hope DC picks up the character again some place in Asgard and gives him his mojo back because damn it was stolen.

@thecheesestabber: she is. Its not an assumption. Jason Aaron emphasized that she will be called thor, nothing else.
