    This is easily the best of the Generation titles so far. The combination of Thors plus the mystery of the Odin/Phoenix relationship makes this a must read and makes me long for Marvel: Legacy. Read Full Review

    I really enjoyed this issue, even with the oddball Phoenix/Odin love history bomb. Jason Aaron is becoming one of my favorite writers at Marvel. I hope we continue to see his awesome writing abilities for many, many years. Read Full Review

    I have no idea where Legacy or the Marvel Universe is currently headed, but if it as fun as The Thunder then I can't wait. Read Full Review

    Black Nerd Problems - Oz Longworth Aug 24, 2017

    It's not something I would call life changing, but that's not really the point of this book. Jason Aaron delivers a fun one-shot that would go nicely in just about any Thor collection you could dream up. That's really all that's required and those needs are met and exceeded. Read Full Review

    Chuck's Comic Of The Day - Chuck Aug 24, 2017

    It's actually fun story by Jason Aaron with strong artwork by Mahmud Asrar (though they've forgotten that, in the Marvel Universe, Odin's eyepatch is a recent acquisition). But the story doesn't seem to accomplish much beyond bringing the two Thors together. Read Full Review

    While it's been a bit strange having Thor's legacy intermingled with that of the X-Men, it's still quite a bit of fun having Aaron broaden Thor's world in such a way and if nothing else will go a long way to explain why Odin is always such a crabby old man. That being said Generations: Thor is a fantastic issue of comics and if nothing else is worth a read in these crossover-filled times, a fun comic after all never goes stale. Read Full Review

    Fantastic art supports a fun and engaging presentation of what it means to be Thor for new and old readers to enjoy. Read Full Review

    PopMatters - Jack Fisher Aug 24, 2017

    That story even includes a few bonus parts that make Generations: Unworthy Thor and The Mighty Thor #1 a prelude to other critical events in the past and future. It offers intrigue beyond the basic lessons in worthiness, which is something that previous issues of Marvel Generations has not done. It adds value to a story that can only offer so much before it undermines the hopelessly convoluted, ever-evolving timeline that is the Marvel universe. That value may not make anyone inherently worthy of lifting Mjolnir, but it will put them on the right track. Read Full Review

    Comic Book Bin - Leroy Douresseaux Aug 25, 2017

    Now, I must say that the art here is beautiful. It is the best work by Mahmud Asrar that I have ever seen. He is a rapidly growing talent, and here, he gives the hackwork story TLC that it does not deserve. Jordie Bellaire does a stellar coloring job on Asrar's compositions. Leave it to Jordie; she'll color the shittiness right of a mediocre comic book, and she just about does that here. Asrar and Bellaire are the reasons I am not giving Generations: The Unworthy Thor & The Mighty Thor #1 a really low grade. Read Full Review

    Newsarama - Kat Calamia Aug 28, 2017

    Generations: The Mighty Thor & The Unworthy Thor #1 lays the ground work for future storylines including Marvel Legacy #1, but misses the heart previous Generations issues delivered on. Read Full Review
