Edit:

I write this several days after I rated this issue because I needed to calm down. I did previously mention that I find this mini unnecessary, self-congratulatory, and disrespectful.

Now we crossed over to sick and wrong.

THE RETURN OF THE GOD BUTCHER!
All-Father Thor believed the fight with his brother Loki - now empowered by the Necrosword and more bitter than ever - would be the bloodiest fight of his long life. But he's about to be proven wrong. Gorr the God Butcher has bided his time for millennia. Now, it is the end of all things. And the end of the last ...

IT'S WOLVERINE VS. LOKI BACK IN THE OLD WEST!
Loki doesn't exactly belong in these parts - or in this time period! But that's never stopped the god of mischief before. And with Wolverine on his side, there's no man or god with the power to stop him. Now...he's just gotta get Wolverine on his side. See their first ever team-up in this two-fisted...

Someone should just give this creative team a Deadpool book instead. I don't know if they would be happier that way, but I sure would.

Whosoever holds this hammer, if she be awesome, shall possess the power of GWENPOOL! That's right-Gwen's got her mitts on Mjolnir and she's got a list of heads that need hammering! Her mission to make herself known in the Marvel Universe at all costs gallops past all reason!

Art is still good if you like Esad Ribic's style.

On the story...

Just characters hitting each other and being wildly out of character (if you even buy they're the characters they supposed to be... which I really don't) so Aaron can make a point that never existed.

OR

Jason Aaron fundamentally misunderstands Loki, but he insists on writing him anyway, an more

Okay. Not lower because I had some good laughs out of it but... Do you remember I felt as I was getting used to the pace of this last month? Nope. It lost me again.

I'm sorry.

This book only makes me wish the Unbelievable Gwenpool, or even West Coast Avengers, lasted longer.

When you're setting out to piss off the most powerful heroes around, you might want to consider if you want to cross one who's IMMORTAL. It's ok---this issue: GWENPOOL DEFEATS THE HULK! Solicit text would not lie!

Malitia reviewed Valkyrie: Jane Foster #3 Sep 18, 2019
7.0

Art is nice, the idea behind the issue is awesome, the last page unfortunately teases the return of the same old... but I've to ask:

Is it in Aaron's contract to shit up continuity for no good reason or does he do it recreationally? I mean, the Angels of Heven have an afterlife. Hel, and later an autonomous part of it they name Elisyum, so they don't have to "create or steal one". (I re more

This is a fun start.

Has whimsy and foreshadowing and fun even if the art is wonky at times. It almost washes out the bad taste Aaron's Thor left in my mouth. Almost. Unfortunately it has to start with presenting the (deeply messed up) angle Marvel marketing pushed for months, but that's not the fault of this book or creative team.

On everything else: The Three Faces of Eve...umm... granddaughters of Thor try to find information, while King Thor is fighting 'generic villain #2077'... I mean, "Loki". Thanks to the last page reveal it doesn't even matter, but at least now I've hope Aaron will finally mess up his OWN work for a change. (Is there a chance in my opinion that more

Fatherly love is not something with which Loki Laufeyson is terribly familiar. Still, you'd think that with the Frost Giants invading New York in Malekith's WAR OF THE REALMS, he'd find some quality time to spend with dear old deadly Dad. And he will. But not in the way you'd think...

Well, this was...

Worse than I hoped (but probably nothing could live up to the Unbelievable Gwenpool), but better than I expected (seriously, to me it had the most off-putting solicit text ever).

What is it like?

Without spoilers?

Well, if you can imagine the manic and somewhat edgy Howard the Duck backup story crossed with the high meta of the late par more
