Marvel Legacy hits Asgard with a bang, with...the death of the Mighty Thor! The final judgment comes as the Mangog arrives. The War Thor will meet the beast head-on, but even the bloodthirst of this Ultimate hammer-wielder may pale in comparison to the Mangog's might!

This has been a beautiful ending to Jane’s story. This volume starts off with Mighty Thor #700, a dazzling 55 page issue that I reread regularly. The scenes with Karnilla give me chills every single time, and the fact that we are allowed to see just slightly into what is to come is so effective. In fact, I don’t think I have ever read any issue of Mighty Thor, or Thor (2014), or God Of Thunder where I haven’t gotten chills. Jason Aaron’s writing is absolutely phenomenal and this volume is no dif ...more

Ugh, I have such conflicting feelings about this volume. I really liked Jane Foster Thor even if the last couple of volumes were not good, and I never wanted her to leave the mantle behind even if her tenure as Thor was meant to be temporary from its very start, not just because of her illness, but because we saw a future Thor in Aaron's original Thor: God of Thunder series, and it was Odinson. Jane Foster was my first Thor, and it was the book that began my affection for Marvel's own corner of ...more

Awesome volume. Jason Aaron once again proves himself worthy to be the writer of Thor.

Jane Foster is boss and this final volume of her as Lady Thor completely seals the deal for me.

The very first oversized issue in this volume makes the whole book worth buying...not that the rest of the story isn't as interesting (it is) but holy mole issue 700 is one of my favorite issues of a comic written in a helluva long time.

It's hard to talk about this volume without talking about SPOILERS, so you have been warned.

This was a solid four star book until the very end. So what happened to sour me on it? Well...

Ever since the debut of this new Thor, we have been working our way toward her death. Heck, they even called this volume The Death of Thor. So did they deliver on this?


It was the old bait and switch. Jane Foster dies for about a minute and a half (to fulfill the b

Wasnt overly engaged in this as other volumes. Maybe because I read it as single issues. Still emotional and thoughtful, solid artwork. Was a good overall series although probably not Aarons best work.

Man, I knew this day was coming, yet I’m still not ready for it. This is the final volume in the Mighty Thor run, and the name leaves very little for the imagination, doesn’t it? I’ve been both looking forward to and dreading this volume for months. But in truth I knew it was going to have to end the moment that I heard that the Marvel Universe was doing a soft reboot. It was bound to happen – they were ready to go back to Thor, and by that I mean Odinson Thor.
The good news is that Jason Aaron

The Mighty Thor: The Death of The Mighty Thor pretty much spelt out what was going to happen, but the journey there was an excellent one. The Mighty Thor (a.k.a Dr Jane Foster) is caught up in a no-win situation; with the almost indestructible Mangog unleashed on Asgardia and, of course, Jane's own personal battle with cancer.

Jane Foster has proven herself worthy of the mantle of Thor throughout The Mighty Thor series, demonstrating heroism amidst her fight with cancer. Every time she transfor

The title of this volume kind of gives away the ending doesn't it? But then again the whole run of Jane Foster as Thor has been leading to this point so it's far from unexpected.

The War of Realms burns on and now the Mangog arrives, i.e a big monster that is stronger than the gods of Asgard. Jane Foster is dying with Mjolnir removing the chemotherapy from her body but leaving the cancer. With even the War Thor unable to stop Mangog, Jane is forced to make a difficult decision...

When I first learned Jason Aaron was going to this whole "Goddess of Thunder" thing, I couldn't imagine (despite having loved pretty much everything he's ever done, especially the run on Thor which preceded this incarnation of the book) handing out a five star review for one of these volumes.

I believe I've done that several times though, and this volume earns the capping role to Aaron's Goddess of Thunder story that it aspires to. Jane proves herself as powerful, heroic, and selfless an incarna

I am going to miss the Hel out of this book.

The art is the best part. I think Mighty Thor may have been the most consistently beautifully drawn comic series I know of. That alone will bring me back for rereads for ages to come.

And the story gets back on track, probably because the end was in sight, so this volume is much more streamlined than the previous, more meandering hardcover.

If I have any complaints it's that the War of the Realms storyline is ongoing, now without Mighty Thor. I personall

a fittingly disastrous end to this mess of an arc. With this final entry, the mighty thor has descended fully into the realm of parody. A shame, since I usually count on thor for a grittier, more serious storyline. Replete with infantile characterizations and insanely repetitive dialogue; you don't even have to read the speech bubbles to know what each character is going to say. The conclusion is completely unfulfilling and malekith, for the seventh volume now, continues to tease at his grand wa ...more

Un fumetto di supereroi. Un fumetto di Thor. Mai avrei pensato di arrivare a commuovermi con queste premesse. La storia di J.F. sarà una pagina della storia del Tonante difficile da dimenticare. E a dispetto delle critiche preventive. Aaron (e non dimentichiamo Dauterman) ha fatto un lavoro splendido.

A epic, personal, emotional ending to Jane Foster's run as Thor. Surprising finish that felt right and fair to both the characters involved and the story. Jason Aaron truly created something special here. A fantastic series that absolutely sticks the landing.

Jak už story arc "The Death of the Mighty Thor" názvem naznačuje, tady se docela vyplatilo mít připravené kapesníky. Nikdy jsem Jane v MCU ani v komiksech moc nemusela, ale Jason Aaron tohle celé vymyslel opravdu na výbornou a zakončil zrovna tak.

Fantastic finale to Jason Aaron's lady-Thor. Story is heartfelt and exciting, while the art is among the best comics has to offer. Great comic!

Neuvěřitelně silný zakončení éry Jane-Thor, která mě celkově sice moc nebavila, ale měla dost silných chvilek - a většina z nich byla právě tady. Jednoznačně 5*.

Thank you Jason Aaron. Thank you. I am a huge fan of Thor since the 70s. To say you have done justice to this superhero is an understatement. I never thought anyone would even get close to Simonson, but, here we are.

If all you had done was to make Jane Thor for a while, that would have been enough. But the treatment you have given this series is wonderful. Can't wait to see what happens next.

Jason Aaron grew up in a small town in Alabama. His cousin, Gustav Hasford, who wrote the semi-autobiographical novel The Short-Timers, on which the feature film Full Metal Jacket was based, was a large influence on Aaron. Aaron decided he wanted to write comics as a child, and though his father was skeptical when Aaron informed him of this aspiration, his mother took Aaron to drug stores, where h ...more
