The Odinson isn't what he once was, and though the mystery of how that came to be is still unfolding, issue #2 makes a point of showing that the once mighty Thor is anything but weak.
Issue #2 picks up right where the first issue left off, with fan favorite Beta Ray Bill offering his Stormbreaker hammer to Thor. It's a kind gesture, and one befitting with the character's history, but the skills of both heroes will be needed to find out just what happened to Asgard.
“In The Unworthy Thor story Odinson is going to learn certain things about himself,” editor Wil Moss told ComicBook.com in a previous interview. “That's stuff that’s connected to the Unseen. He's responsible for Odinson’s situation. We know that that's what Nick Fury Sr. has become. Odinson’s not aware that's who it is. The Unseen definitely has a feeling, not guilt or anything like that, but an obligation, to a degree, for the situation that Odinson’s in. He plays a very interesting role in the story, I'll say that. He comes and sets everything off and then that won't be the last we'll see of him.”
You can find an exclusive preview of the issue in the gallery, and you can check out the official description below.
The Realm of Old Asgard has vanished, taking with it Odinson’s hope for redemption. But good tidings from Beta Ray Bill might breathe new life into the quest. For Bill knows the fate of the Realm Eternal. To win back Odinson’s honor, the brothers in arms must infiltrate the fortress of THE COLLECTOR.
The Unworthy Thor #2 is written by Jason Aaron with art from Olivier Coipel. It also features colorist Matthew Wilson with lettering from VC's Joe Sabino. The book will also launch with variant covers from Kris Anka, Jim Cheung and Laura Martin, and Mike Deodato and Frank Martin.
