The idea that this issue devotes its attention to was covered better a couple issues back, where a young Thor found himself dealing with a similar problem, as Dan Jurgens kick at this can offers up a problem where there's very little room for questioning the idea that these Vikings are acting against the interests of the gods of Asgard. I mean it's clear right from the start that these Vikings are evil, and that they are not following the wishes of their gods, so when Thor discovers what is being done in their name, his horrified reaction is hardly unexpected. I'd much rather have had Thor placed in a situation where he could've landed on either side of the fence, and had to really struggle to decide which side he felt was right.

Plus, the story leaves the issue of the Vikings punishment unresolved which made for a rather unsatisfactory conclusion. Read Full Review
