COMICS: First Look At Marvel NOW!'s THOR: GOD OF THUNDER
Check out the cover to Jason Aaron and Esad Ribic's new Thor comic, which will debut as part of the Marvel NOW! relaunch. Aaron also reveals that we are in for a pretty unique take on the character, and we will see a brand new villain too -- Gorr, "the God Butcher"..
Jason Aaron tells Newsarama what we can expect from the new series, revealing that his take on Thor will involve three different "past, present, and future" versions of the character..
"I do flash back and show a young Thor in action, but he's actually just one of three Thors that I want to focus on. This first story is an epic tale that plays out over the course of thousands of years. So we spend time with young Thor in the Viking age — the young, hotheaded god of the Vikings, who loves to come down to Midgard and get into trouble. In the present, we see Thor the Avenger on a journey that takes him to the far corners of space, interacting with all sorts of new space gods and wondrous new locations. And then we also see old King Thor, who's the last king of Asgard, thousands of years in the future, where something has gone horribly, horribly wrong. Linking all these eras and Thors together is one villain, an all-new character [Gorr, the God Butcher], who is basically, at least initially, a serial killer of gods. He's a guy with a serious axe to grind against all immortal beings in the cosmos, and he's going around doing his best to kill them all off, one at a time, as brutally as possible. That villain's story unfolds over the course of all these different eras. He starts as a serial killer of gods, but by the end, he has become something even more frightening."
That sounds pretty damn great to me. Looking forward to this one in November. For the full interview click the link back to Newsarama below.
