  1. The Alex Ross cover with all the Thors is worth the cost of admission. But it's weird that I can remember before Beta Ray Bill, because Bill was the first "other Thor", and now there have been "other Thors" in the comics longer than "one and only Thor".

    Now another funny bit to me, as much as I love Storm the Goddess of Thunder, I have to remember that her hammer was created by Loki. So it's never been established if Ororo could lift Mjolnir. I tend to think she'd be worthy, but it's not been shown. So is the version here an Ororo with a Loki hammer? Or is she holding a Mjolnir-ish hammer with the Thor-worthy requirement? Deciphering Doom's fan fic is not for the faint of heart.

    Ok, so to my knowledge, Byrne introduced Doom's respect for Sue, for her "fire" of spirit. But that didn't translate to romantic interest in my opinion. So when did this become a thing? Doom has certainly never taken it easy on Sue in battle before, or offered "marry me and I'll spare them" trope, or spared her from torture/captivity. So to make him remake reality with her as his wife, 1) I don't buy, and 2) EEEEWWWWWWW!

    Excellent show again, Beyondists!
