    I think the best way to approach this story at the moment is to think of it as a what if style morality play, along the lines of the Squadron Supreme, as frankly the material is far more engaging when you ignore the impulse to wonder how the rest of the Marvel Universe is reacting to Thor's attempt to remake Earth into the idealize paradise he believes it can be. Dan Jurgens is certainly doing a pretty good job of presenting the idea that Thor's actions might actually lead humanity into paradise, as except for Zarrko's assurance that Thor's actions will doom the human race, so far we've been given very little reason to be overly concerned by what we seen. I mean arguments for self reliance sound pretty hollow when Thor counters by pointing out that he's ended hunger, poverty & illness. This issue also brings Loki into the picture, and it places him in a decidedly unique position, by having him openly praise Thor's actions. Read Full Review
