The final judgement comes as the Mangog arrives! The War Thor will meet the beast head on. But even the bloodthirst of this Ultimate Thor may pale in comparison to the might of the Mangog! The battle rages as Jane's cancer takes a turn for the worse, and she might not have to wait for the final judgment at all. The clock is ticking, and no hammer can save her this time. It's the beginning of the end that will lead to the most dramatic return in the Marvel Universe!
PLUS: Includes 3 bonus MARVEL PRIMER PAGES! Story by Robbie Thompson and a TBA artist!

    Bleeding Cool - Joe Glass Sep 26, 2017

    Marvel Legacy #1 has been definitively set up as a must read for the future of Marvel, but for my money, I would say that The Mighty Thor #700 might be just as important a book to read, too. Read Full Review

    Black Nerd Problems - Oz Longworth Oct 20, 2017

    Bottom Line: Aaron masterfully took several storylines that each could have been standalone books and blended them into one massive book that's well worth the price point. If you're still on the fence as to whether or not Thor is the second hardest Avenger alive (sorry, y'all but Steve Rogers) after reading this book, I don't know what else to do for you. An incredible read. Read Full Review

    Monkeys Fighting Robots - Brandon J. Griffin Oct 22, 2017

    Jason Aaron is a top talent in the industry, a top talent for Marvel, and an all-time great for Thor writers. If you aren't reading Mighty Thor right now, you're severely depriving yourself. A run like this doesn't happen very often anymore, and a story this epic is why many of us read comics in the first place, it's a major achievement. Read Full Review

    IGN - Jesse Schedeen Oct 18, 2017

    Jason Aaron's Thor saga may be five-years-deep at this point, but it's showing no signs of slowing down or running out of gas. This issue serves as both a celebration of Thor's heroic legacy and a look forward into the dark days lying ahead for the hammer-wielding heroes of the Marvel U. With an all-star cast of artists on board, this oversized issue easily ranks among the best of Aaron's long run. Read Full Review

    Henchman-4-Hire - Sean Ian Mills Oct 21, 2017

    This overside, overstuffed anniversary issue is a fantastic read, with gorgeous art, great stories and a real connection to the already ongoing tale. This is exactly what you should want from such an issue (though I could have used more Beta Ray Bill). Read Full Review

    Bleeding Cool - Joshua Davison Oct 22, 2017

    Jason Aaron puts on quite the show for this celebration of Mighty Thor, and it has me interested in the future exploits of Thor, whosever it may be. The promised returns look cool, and the potential changes in the future for Thor should be awesome. The price is steep, but Id say its worth it. Give it a read. Read Full Review

    Weird Science - Branden Murray Oct 23, 2017

    Thor #700 throws a lot at you throughout the 50 plus pages of story both artistically and story wise while Jason Aaron continues his Thor epic and sets the stage for the future of the title going forward. Despite a few hiccups I'd recommended this to long time fans of the book title as well as newcomers. Read Full Review

    PopMatters - Jack Fisher Oct 19, 2017

    It may not have the loud explosions, coupled with heavy metal music, but The Mighty Thor #700 is plenty appealing in all the right ways. Worthiness may still be a hopelessly esoteric concept that fans will be arguing over on message boards for another 700 issues, but this one proves its worth, as only a Thor comic can.

    Newsarama - David Pepose Oct 19, 2017

    Still, that’s the kind of failing I want to see more of in comic books - because Mighty Thor #700 takes a particularly weighty franchise and does a remarkable job at examining and celebrating its long and storied legacy. The effort and enthusiasm behind this book is palpable, and dare I say, even infectious. Fans of Mjolnir should definitely give this book a read, if not to see where Thor is headed as a series, but to see such a uniformly strong collection of talent in the same place. Read Full Review

    On Comics Ground - Joanna Robinson Oct 21, 2017

    With a title that has the word Death in it, you know it cant be good. I know comics are meant to jump around but this was a bouncy house of jumping around. I had to reread it a few times (note, this is a 50-page comic) to figure out what was actually going on and the point of the jumping. Its because there is just SO MUCH going on all over the realms and how it all connects that I finally was ok with it. Not to mention there are different art styles going on with every story. From the playful style of Loki to the dark style of Mighty Thor and She-Hulk going at it. A lot is going on here and while its all good story telling, it gets to be a smidge too much. But some of the stuff in here (stuff that is big time spoilers) is amazing to see and I look forward to seeing if those spoilers come true. Read Full Review

    Newsarama - Kat Calamia Oct 19, 2017

    The Mighty Thor #700's execution is messy and too scattered to be new reader-friendly for the "Marvel Legacy" lineup and to warrant its $5.99 price tag. Read Full Review
