The Original God of Thunder Is Back and Ready to Prove Himself in The Unworthy Thor
Coming this Fall, The Unworthy Thor, by Mighty Thor writer Jason Aaron and artist Olivier Coipel, will follow the god’s escape and captivity—revealed to be at the hands of none other than cosmic archiver the Collector—and his journey to becoming a hero once more. But he’s not taking Jane’s place: Unworthy Thor is expressly a companion series to Mighty Thor. The Odinson is forging his own path, and will even wield his own hammer… one that actually has some pretty huge connections to the Pre-Secret Wars Marvel universe.
We sat down with Jason Aaron to discuss why now is the right time to give Thor Odinson his own series, what his re-appearance means for the Marvel universe, and just how the hell he’ll figure out referring to double the Thors in his work on Unworthy and Mighty Thor. (io9)

The new series of The Invincible Iron Man, by Bendis and artist Stefano Caselli, will launch at the end of the year.
There’s a new Iron Man. Well, Iron Man for now. She’s still working on the name. The events at the end of the comic book event series Civil War II will result in Tony Stark stepping out of the Iron Man suit and a new character, Riri Williams, taking over, Marvel
As part of Marvel Entertainment’s Marvel NOW! relaunch this fall, the inventor of the Iron Man armor will find his place taken by Riri Williams — a teenage genius who built her own version of the Iron Man suit in a dorm room at MIT.
Williams debuted in Invincible Iron Man No. 7 in March of this year, and will headline a relaunched version of the title later this year as part of the Marvel NOW! relaunch. Created by series writer Brian Michael Bendis — who also co-created Miles Morales, the half-Black, half-Latino Spider-Man that debuted in 2011 — and artist Mike Deodato, Riri has been shown to be even more resourceful than Stark himself, and just as stubborn.
Williams’ ascension as Iron Man (The title of the series will remain the same, according to Marvel) continues a trend for replacing, or at least expanding, the traditional white male heroes with a more diverse cast over the last few years; in addition to the Miles Morales Spider-Man, Sam Wilson became Marvel’s second black Captain America in 2014, the same year that Jane Foster took over as Thor.
Although Marvel is keeping the fate of Tony Stark quiet for now — although the already revealed cover to October’s Civil War II No. 7 suggests that his fight with Captain Marvel isn’t going to end well for him — Williams is already at work in the Iron Man comic book; the 11th issue of the series, released today, shows her road-testing her homemade armor.
Captain America: Steve Rogers #2
(Note: Here be spoilers, naturally. You’ve been warned.) After one issue, Captain America is no longer a Nazi. The only surprising thing here is how quickly Marvel backtracked on their initial choice, though it was clear Captain America would not actually be a Hydra agent forever. In an interview with ComicBook.com, Marvel Editor-in-Chief Axel Alonso said that in Captain America: Steve Rogers #2, it will be revealed that Captain America just thinks he’s a Nazi, err, I mean, Hydra agent, because he had false memories implanted by “Kobik, the sentient Cosmic Cube who became a girl.”

The Last Crusade picks up some years before Bruce Wayne originally hung up his cowl and sunk into a 10-year-long, alcohol-soaked retirement. While this Batman is younger and healthier than the one seen in The Dark Knight Returns, he’s beginning to feel the aches and pains of an aging body and fret about Jason’s readiness to take up the mantle. This is where The Last Crusade succeeds best. It shows us a more vulnerable Bruce, one who’s forced to confront his legacy and the knowledge that his days as Batman are numbered. Compared to Miller’s normally psychopathic interpretation of Batman, this is a far more evenhanded and introspective take on the character. And nowhere does this take work better than in the scenes between Bruce and Selina Kyle, the latter of whom has already gladly left the vigilante lifestyle behind.
Unique take on Batman notwithstanding, the whole appeal of The Last Crusade is seeing the last hurrah of Jason Todd and the Joker’s final rampage before the events of DKR. Unfortunately, neither character is really exploited to their fullest here. The comic spends far too little time trying to get inside Jason’s head or exploring the relationship between the Dynamic Duo. Other than the general idea that Jason is too violent and headstrong for his own good, there’s little insight into personality. As for Joker, the script certainly succeeds in tapping into the villain’s surreal, mercurial side. Co-writer Brian Azzarello’s voice is most readily apparent during Joker’s frequent monologues. But as for what the villain is actually trying to accomplish in this issue, that’s never really made clear. Joker’s character arc is obtuse at best, with the villain spending most of his page time waxing philosophical while chaos unfolds around him.
[DC Comics] Green Arrow #1
Green Arrow #1 is one of the few “Rebirth” titles that maintains its regular series writer, and — while that made me a little hesitant at first — I’ll give Benjamin Percy and new series artist Otto Schmidt credit where it’s due. Not only is “Green Arrow” #1 new-reader friendly, but they pack a few big hooks into this issue to keep readers coming back for more.
Most of “Green Arrow” #1 is devoted to Green Arrow and Black Canary working together, having finally teamed up in “Green Arrow: Rebirth” #1 earlier this month. Percy isn’t afraid to use the opportunity to let Black Canary show Green Arrow how off-track his mission — or at least his methods — has become, as he bribes police, pays criminals and lets Queen Industries run rampant without his paying attention; as she points out, he only has one relationship that isn’t based on money. In short, Percy uses Black Canary’s voice for more than just her sonic powers; it’s a call to get Oliver to stop and reevaluate his life.
