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).

Loki | Comics

Known among the nine realms for his notorious nature of treachery, Loki Laufeyson is the adopted son of Odin All-Father and half-brother to his blood-son Thor. Oribinally, born to Queen Farbauti and King Laufey of The Frost Giants of Jotunheim, he was small kid who was an embarrassment to his parents. When Laufey was defeated by Odin in battle, All-Father noticed a grieving Loki nearby and took him to rise as his own out of honor and obligation. Actually, all of these were a ploy he created with his future-self so that he can become a god by tricking both Laufey and Odin.

God of Mischief
Since Asgardians were a fan of strength and bravery, Thor was their favorite one instead of Loki and this always angered him in jealousy. While he excelled in sorcery and tricks, all of his gifts were often overlooked by everyone around him. Proclaiming himself to be "God of Mischief", he planned to kill Thor and rule Asgard over and over for years but remained unsuccessful so far. Over time, his harmless pranks on folks starts to get more serious and his intentions starts to seem very clear. As he elevated his mischievous tricks to extended levels, he starts calling himself as "God of Evil".

Ages of Thunder
Asgard has their fair share of history of battles with the race of Frost Giants for millennia. One such fight with them led to one of them falling and destroying a great wall of Asgard. Then a craftsman came to them who offered Odin to fix that wall within a year in exchange for one thing and it was Amora the Enchantress. Since Asgardians gained wisdom and youth upon eating golden apples of Yggdrasill during spring and only Enchantress among them had the power to pick those for her people, they were hesitant to this deal.

Odin agreed to his offer after Loki talked him into this and gave that man only six months to finish the wall, which is an impossible feat to pull. However, the craftsman eventually came close to his end of deal by almost finishing the wall in lesser time than given, causing an enraged All-Father to order Loki to stall him anyhow so that he cannot finish it within promised time. He tricked the craftsman's steed by posing as a mare, leading him to fail and then it was revealed to be another Frost Giant in disguise. Thor showed up as it attempted to attack and killed it with Mjolnir before it could do anything.

Another one of his trickery has got him banished from Asgard and he wandered without a direction for a long time while starving. An eagle approached him with a deal to give him food in his hours of desperation and asks for Enchantress. Loki talked her into coming with him and that eagle took his real form of a Frost Giant took Amora to be his queen. Asgard was starving since no one was able to golden apples for them and finding out what happened, Odin forced the trickster to rescue her. He was almost successful when the Frost Giant confronted him for his deception moments before being killed by Thor.
