Warning: SPOILERS for War of The Realms Omega
Years from now fans will still be talking about Jason Aaron’s run on Marvel’s Thor comics, a years-long story that has recently culminated in the god of thunder accepting his destiny as the new All-Father Thor, King of Asgard. But as fans gather to see his reign begin, one thing is clear: the new Thor sure isn’t the one fans once knew.
Stronger, smarter, and yet somehow still humble, the War of The Realms has proven to be the fire which forged an Asgardian like none before. The immediate future of the Thor series is being kept quiet, deciding where his new role as All-Father may take him (before his ancient self ends his story doing battle with Loki in his King Thor comic series). Whatever twists may be coming, and no matter how many eyeballs or limbs were lost in the fight, fans of Thor would regret it if they didn’t feast their eyes on the new All-Father that emerged from the flames mightier than ever before.
As anyone even casually aware of the comic book Thor already knows, the War of The Realms has changed Marvel’s Universe across all of the Ten Realms. It was the war Thor was born to fight, and the test he was destined to pass, earning his place as the master of Asgard’s fate. But as War of The Realms Omega shows, the clean-up is going to be just as challenging as victory. More, in fact, when you consider how quickly Thor actually won. It’s a task that previous Thors may have run from, or trembled in the face of but as the new All-Father Thor returns to Earth, his new look is that of a king of gods.
The fact that Thor upgraded his arm with the Destroyer’s, and then used it to cut through entire armies will always be a striking image. The sign of his wisdom being earned from the World Tree itself comes in the form of Thor’s his missing eye, just like his father Odin in his glory days. And of course it may look the same, but Thor’s new Mjolnir is the most powerful yet. This costume may change at any point, even if the arm and eye are honor. And with Thor trading his red cloth cape for a thick animal fur cloak, the result is as close to a recreation of Odin as fans are likely to get (or Thor is willing to offer). One thing is clear: the King of Asgard won’t have anyone questioning if he’s up to the job ever again. Read on below for the full solicitation details for War of The Realms Omega #1.
