The final battle for the right to Ultimate Thor's hammer is finally here, and the Odinson is going to have a tough time prying it from the hands of the mad titan Thanos.
In the big finale to the Jason Aaron miniseries, Odinson has finally overcome the Collector and any others that have stood in his way as he attempts to grasp ahold of his destiny. That destiny lies in a hammer that no one else has been able to lift, whether it be the Collector or Black Swan. There is one other though who wants to try, and he is not going to let Odinson take it before he can.
The finale will also reveal just what Nick Fury said to make Odinson unworthy of Mjolnir in the first place, a mystery that many have wanted the answers to ever since Original Sin.
The Unworthy Thor is written by Jason Aaron with art by Pascal Alixe, Olivier CCoipel, and Kim Jacinto. You can find the official description for the issue below, and the exclusive preview can be found in the gallery.
The hammer of the Ultimate Thor is finally within reach of Asgard's fallen son. Is redemption finally at hand? No matter what happens next, life will never be the same for the Odinson.
Some of these ideas might just inspire the upcoming Thor: Ragnarok, and you can find the official synopsis for the film below.
In Marvel Studios' Thor: Ragnarok, Thor is imprisoned on the other side of the universe without his mighty hammer and finds himself in a race against time to get back to Asgard to stop Ragnarok – the destruction of his homeworld and the end of Asgardian civilization – at the hands of an all-powerful new threat, the ruthless Hela. But first, he must survive a deadly gladiatorial contest that pits him against his former ally and fellow Avenger – the Incredible Hulk!
