Really enjoyed this. Lot of great stories from past Thor writers and Artist, with the highlight of the issue being Straczynski and Coipel's pages. Still enjoying the main story from Cates and Klein as well. Klein did a really nice looking double page spread of Odin's funeral.

The only thing I didn't like in this issue was Jason Aaron's story. When I read the description saying we're more

Great finale to the arc and some of the best art I've seen from Nic Klein this run. Only con was Angela still feeling kind of shoehorned in. There's also some pretty blatant MCU synergy inserted at the end, but it worked for the issue.

This isn't a bad issue but it's safe to say there are some HUGE plotholes that I can't ignore just because it's Hickman.

When Marvel announced the original heroes returning for the Fresh Start relaunch, Bruce Banner got the least amount of enthusiasm.

Three years later, Al Ewing and Joe Bennett conclude one of the most acclaimed series in all of comics.

I love Iron Man, and I was a fan before the movies. I have been a fan for a long time, so when I say this, I say it with love. Tony Stark is an egotistical douche. And I'm sick of people acting like he's not. That's part of the charm of the character. Seeing him called on it by a *woman*, or if a few of you prefer, a *femoid*, doesn't faze me. The art does a good job looking and feeling like CAFU. more

Amazing Psycamorean - Sep 23, 2021

The Busiek/Chen run probably has the most selfless interpretation of the character, but we can't cherry pick which versions of a character we like, and then vehemently disregard any other interpretation, especially when it's not a hard left turn for the character by any means. I was frustrated that that's what so many people were doing in the reviews for this issue.

Amazing Psycamorean - Sep 23, 2021

Although, let's be honest, that response probably had little to do with Tony Stark's characterization, and a whole lot more to do with Patsy Walker, a female character, being too strong willed and acting as the voice of reason for our main character. I could be nice and say it's because, as Tony is the protagonist, any derision directed at him and his goals makes us dislike the source of that derision. Or I could say it's because people don't like strong women in fiction, due to their... biases.
