A perfect ending for the best run at Marvel in the 2010s. Reading it felt a bit like the end of LOTR, with multiple endings (all of them good !!!) and some new ideas thrown in for good measure. Clearly, Aaron's creative well was far from dry. Kudos to you, Jason, the greatest Thor fan !!! And good luck to Donny Cates and Nick Klein, they have a heavy task ahead for them, coming after that...
