The Unworthy Thor [The Book Depository] [Waterstones] comes back with the sin unpardonable. Thor has a warrior’s madness moment and goes berserk. The Collector has taken Asgard, him, and his friend captive. The Collector wants to own and hold the Mjolnir that landed on what remains of Asgard. He wants all the secrets that Thor has. Although Mjolnir seems to call for Thor, the God of Thunder is still having a bad case of low self-steem.
And while the Thunderer is fighting foes and his own demons, someone is offering Thanos the hammer. A cloacked figure makes a deal with the Titan. Soon, the Collector will find that there’s someone else coveting the new Mjolnir.
So, how does Thor spend his days? Self-loathing himself, fighting like a mad man, and exchanging words with his cell neighbor, a hell-hound called Thorin. And surprise, it was Loki who named the hound after Thor. So far, the Thunderer is just one more item in the Collector’s treasure. However, soon Thor breaks free only to fight his friend Beta Ray Bill. He fought too much, ate too few, and loathed himself too much. All this just caused him to have warror’s madness and ended up fighting everyone!
And if things weren’t bad enough, Thanos’ minions and the cloaked villain arrive to retrieve the Hammer. What they find is the Thors fighting each other. Surprised, they punch them, but they don’t kill them. Instead, they go directly where the Collector is with the intention to steal Mjolnir.
While in Thor Ragnarok we see Stan Lee cutting the Thunderer’s hair, in this comic we see Thor cutting it himself. It’s like he’s punishing himself for being so low. And yet, the other Mjolnir is calling for him. He might not be the God of Thunder that he was, but he’s still one of the many Thors in the Universe.
This is a journey from the darkest places of the soul to the light above. Thor is hurting. He hates himself. He considers he’s unworthy. And yet, despite all the fighting, the self-loathing, and the friend beside him, he seemed not to be able to come to grips that he can make mistakes too. Will he end up acknowleging that he can be worthy even if he has made mistakes like the rest of beings in the Universe. He might be a God, but he is as imperfect as the Universe he lives in.
I love this comic a lot. We take a look at what happens to someone who has depression. All his thoughts are dark, and despite having his friend helping him, he seems not to react. Instead, he goes over and over on the same self-loading ideas. However, it seems that cutting his hair it’s a symbol for a change. Will Thor take responsibility and start mending himself? Luckily, he has friends (including a hell-hound). I can’t wait for the next story of The Unworthy Thor [The Book Depository] [Waterstones]!
