The Unworthy Thor | Comics

For ages, The Mighty Thor has been master of lightning and bearer of his mighty uru hammer Mjolnir, until Nick Fury whispered something to his ears (during Original Sin), which was a long-kept secret by Uatu The Watcher that rendered him unworthy and he became unable to lift the mystic hammer. Since then, he has been tirelessly seeking means of wielding his trusted weapon once again by redeeming his worthiness. It dropped on surface of the moon and unsuccessful at reclaiming his right to wield Mjolnir, he is now going by the name Odinson these days.

In quest for redemption, his new weapon of choice is a battle axe called Jarnbjorn and Odinson also starts using arm prosthesis made of Black Uru after it was chopped off in a fight against Malekith. A new female Thor started wielding the enchanted hammer while it rejected him again and again. Then Multiverse started collapsing and he aided The Avengers in their mission to save all but Odinson dies with Hyperion trying to oppose a wave of Beyonders (Time Runs Out). Realities clashed, Universe died and restored back as Odinson came to find Mjolnir again (Secret Wars).

After dozens of satellites were damaged by some unknown forces, Odinson receives a call from Alpha Flight about this matter. He goes to investigate on moon and engages in a fight with a group of Trolls led by their leader King Ulik. Though he had his battle axe Jarnbjorn at hand, it isn't as effective in battle as Mjolnir was and after some struggle, he was able to force the Trolls retreat with a little help from his mystical pet goat Toothgnasher. Then The Unseen approached him on surface of moon, who informed Odinson about another hammer of a dead Thor of another world.

Back at old Asgard, Odinson rushed there on Toothgnasher only to find it disappeared from its place. While he was wondering who could have done this, legendary Korbinite warrior and an old friend, Beta Ray Bill came looking for him. Seeing Odinson without his mighty Mjolnir, Bill offers his very own Stormbreaker to Odinson but the latter gently rejects this offer. As Bill was about to disclose the identity of the one who has taken over eternal Norse realm into his possession, the Brothers in Thunder came under attack.

These two engages their attacking party and when Thor heads toward their transport ship, a powerful bomb from a lost civilization is dropped on him. When woke up, Odinson discovers himself in chains and the person behind his capture and Asgard's disappearance is revealed to be an elder of universe named Taneleer Tivan; The Collector. He wants Ultimate Mjolnir for himself and unsuccessfully tries to force Odinson into revealing way of lifting it. Soon, along with a mysterious hooded figure, Black Swan and Proxima Midnight of Thanos's Black Order sneaks into Collector's ship looking for the hammer.

The Unworthy Thor

A five-part limited series, which is the brainchild of writer Jason Aaron (Southern Bastards, Thanos Rising) and artist Olivier Coipel (House of M, Siege), "The Unworthy Thor" centers around event that are highlights from Original Sin to AXIS to Thors – Battleworld, a tie-in story from Secret Wars crossover event. A journey of Odinson that has began from regaining his grace and reclaiming his title of being worthy to wield his legendary uru hammer Mjolnir once again is focus of entire plot. Long after, The Thunder Brothers of Asgard are reunited once again against a common foe and fought valiantly side by side for a common goal, which was very satisfying.

War of The Unworthy

This story features a wide array of Marvel characters like Beta Ray Bill, Black Swan, Hela, Nick Fury, Proxima Midnight, Thanos, The Collector, Thori, Toothgnasher and Ulik, each of whom played their own respective parts for the story to advance forward to a direction where all of these will finally make sense. Surprisingly, Taneleer Tivan AKA The Collector in this book resembles a lot like Benicio del Toro's version of the character portrayed in live-action Guardians of the Galaxy (2014) movie. The story also hinted at a couple of point that might relate to Marvel Cinematic Universe live-action film Thor – Ragnarok (2017) and upcoming Avengers – Infinity War (2018).
