Thor versus Galactus. And Roxxon. Seriously.
This March, the Odinson battles to save the Earth across the timestream in THOR: GOD OF THUNDER #20 – from the New York Times Bestselling creative team of Jason Aaron and Esad Ribic! In the present day, the God of Thunder battles alongside S.H.I.E.L.D. Agent Roz Solomon against the evil Roxxon corporation and their sinister CEO Dario Agger – a.k.a. The Minotaur! But even a God may not be powerful enough to stop the world’s most powerful super-corporation! Meanwhile, far in the future, King Thor – one of the last remaining beings on Midgard – battles for the planet’s survival against a terrible and awesome foe! Galactus, the Devourer of Worlds, has come to consume what remains of the planet Earth! And even if King Thor succeeds, the Earth may still be doomed. Don’t miss the next blockbuster chapter of The Last Days of Midgard when THOR: GOD OF THUNDER #20 hits comic shops this March!
I think that cover might be one of my favorites of the year so far. What’s to say about King Thor (the future version of the character) against Galactus? Not too much honestly as it’s kind of a dream matchup in the realm of Thor vs Juggernaut. While we’ve seen the Thunder God take on Cain Marko though, we;ve certainly never seen him go mano-a-mano against the World Devourer himself. That’s just too cool.
The modern Marvel Universe tale set in Thor #20’s pages is actually really neat too though as he tackles Roxxon Oil, a group that hasn’t seen any kind of major play in Marvel’s books in a good long time. How does a superhero (even one that’s a god) take on a corporation anyway? Call Daredevil?
Thor: God of Thunder #20 will be on the racks in all its glory from the team of Jason Aaron and Esad Ribic on March 19th.
