Thor: The Trial of Any Century
By Tim Stevens
Sometimes, swinging a really big hammer cannot get you out of every jam. Asgard's God of Thunder will learn this the hard way when takes the stand on his own behalf in THOR: THE TRIAL OF THOR, from writer Peter Milligan and artist Cary Nord, on sale now. Thor
has been called before his father, Odin
, for murdering Asgardians in the wake of a vicious skirmish on the word of Balder the Brave, a most reliable witness. If Balder says it happened, how could it not be true? And yet, how could one of Asgard's greatest protectors turn against the Golden Realm on such a dire day? This question propels the one-shot's narrative forward as Odin convenes court to decide where the truth lies.
For Milligan, the idea of setting a down-to-earth event like a trial by law against the backdrop of Asgard's grandeur proved too tempting an avenue not to explore.
"I really like the juxtaposition of a spin on this recognizable story convention against the backdrop of gods and giants and strange lands," the writer admits. "What's
appealing—I hope—about this plot is that it does what good, gripping plots should do: it takes its protagonist into uncomfortable territory. It hangs its protagonist out to dry. And we're wondering if just maybe our protagonist deserves all that he's getting."
Thor nicely fulfills that role, offering a protagonist who has proven himself noble, thoughtful, and heroic, but also prone to an explosive temper and arrogance.
"He's been the savior of Asgard many times, but can the pressure of being such a hero to his people takes its toll, even on someone like Thor?" asks Milligan. "What—if anything—could make him snap? Can even a thunder god lose his senses or his moral compass?"
While fans attempt to figure that question out, they may find themselves drawn to Volstagg the Valiant, Fandral the Dashing, and Hogun the Grim, better known as the Warriors Three. As cast by Milligan, the trio plays a vital role in discovering the truth behind the story:
"The Warriors Three play an important part in this story," he reiterates. "Here, they become a kind of cross between C.S.I. Asgard and 'L.A. Law.'"
While Milligan admits there have been plenty of Thor stories before his and there will be many after, he remains assured that THE TRIAL OF THOR will offer a unique approach to the character and his world.
"That mix of real-life mythology and comic book sensibility means you can do or find just about anything on the many worlds of Asgard. I mean, there have been hundreds of Thor stories told but you get the feeling that there are still unexplored regions and unknown characters out here."

Marvel Studios Update: Loki Officially Cast in 2011 Thor Movie
Waiting for the movie hammer to fall, Thor fans? So are we! Verily!
And we're getting so much closer because now we know who Thor will be facing off against and that's Tom Hiddleston as the trickster Loki!
Marvel Studios announced today Hiddleston has been cast as the villain Loki in the highly anticipated movie "Thor." Kenneth Branagh will direct the film penned by Mark Protosevich and Ashley Miller & Zak Stentz.
Marvel Studios' Kevin Feige will produce the film. The film will be released in the U.S. on May 20, 2011 and distributed by Paramount Pictures.
Marvel Studios expands its film universe with a new type of super hero: "Thor." This epic adventure spans the Marvel Universe; from present day Earth to the realm of Asgard. At the center of the story is The Mighty Thor, a powerful but arrogant warrior whose reckless actions reignite an ancient war. Thor is cast down to Earth and forced to live among humans as punishment. Once here, Thor learns what it takes to be a true hero when the most dangerous villain of his world sends the darkest forces of Asgard to invade Earth.
"Thor" reunites Hiddleston with Branagh, with whom he worked on the London production of Chekhov's "Ivanov." The talented actor and Branagh also starred together in the BBC miniseries "Wallander."
Hiddleston's credits also include "Othello," in which he starred with Chiwetel Ejiofor and Ewan McGregor at the Donmar Warehouse, and he played Winston Churchill's son in HBO's "The Gathering Storm."
In 2008, Hiddleston was nominated twice for the Laurence Olivier Award for Best Newcomer – for his role in Othello" and for his role in "Cymbeline." He won the award for the latter.
In addition to "Thor," Marvel Studios is also scheduled to release a slate of films based on the Marvel characters including "Iron Man 2" on May 7, 2010, "The First Avenger: Captain America" on July 22, 2011, and "The Avengers" on May 4, 2012. Current Mood: awake

Beta Ray Bill: Entering Eden
Still sizzling from his appearance in last year's SECRET INVASION: THOR limited series, the only other being to wield the power of the God of Thunder finally finds a bit of peace—maybe.
Beta Ray Bill, an alien Korbinite who possesses all the god-like abilities of Thor
, opens an exciting new chapter in his life this April 15 in SECRET INVASION AFTERMATH: BETA RAY BILL – THE GREEN OF EDEN #1. Long title, yes, but writer Kieron Gillen gives us the short and skinny of it:
"People decide Beta Ray Bill is a god," says Gillen. "Other people decide he isn't. Bill deals. Plus, Enormous Mechanoid Space Squid."
"Skuttlebutt is back," Gillen adds. "I have nothing but love for sentient battleships. My family has a sentient battleship on my mother's side. Great guy. Everyone should know one."
Imbued with power by Odin
himself, raked over the hot coals by Skrulls
during the Secret Invasion and still finding the strength to battle on, Bill's become a classic Marvel character in his own right. Impressed by what
he sees as his stoicism, Gillen feels the story of this one-shot proves every bit of Bill's popularity's warranted.
"He's gone through hell in recent years," he notes. "He's lost his people. He's been trapped in another dimension stuck in a Sisyphean battle. He's been tortured by Skrulls. But he doesn't sit and whine. He gets back on the horse, and back out there helping the universe. But in GREEN OF EDEN the cracks start to show. He increasingly can't ignore what he's been through. He has to act."
Thor once existed as a god among men in ancient times and Bill's experiences with the alien race in this far-flung tale mirror those days in a way, though perhaps not necessarily a good one.
"This is absolutely the core of the story," explains Gillen. "People tend to talk about Bill as, well, 'Thor, but a space horse.' But one of the key things of Bill is a separate paradox. He's an alien—as in, firmly in the science-fiction tradition—who happens to have the powers of a figure from mythology. Thor was fine with being worshiped. Bill isn't. Bill knows he isn't a god. In fact, Bill is weirded out by being treated as a god.
"By having people try to treat him like how Thor once was allows us to show how different the two hammer-wielders are."
Gillen's name will be familiar to British comic fans but not as yet to American readers. However, his pioneering work as a video game journalist and writer of British comics allows him to bring a unique perspective to GREEN OF EDEN.
"The criticism side of what I do shapes my comics most," he says. "The main part of my job is taking apart things and explaining how they work. When I do any comic work, I attack characters and try to get back to their fundamentals—the reasons why anyone should care. It's especially true when I'm writing characters who've been "offstage" for a while, which is, so far, all I've done in the Marvel Universe.
"A main pillar of criticism for me is saying 'Why this matters.' That's of enormous use when trying to do this sort of thing in comics."
Also of enormous use: the incredible artwork of Dan Brereton, which graces the pages of GREEN OF EDEN and who Gillen can't praise enough.
"Epic capital-R romance," the writer says of Brereton's visuals on the one-shot. "In fact, epic is too small a word, really. Dan really sells how Bill's world is both phenomenally ludicrous—which is a word I use only as a compliment, as in, awesome beyond normal bounds of taste—and incredibly weighty.
"You know the week it hits there will be nothing on the stands which looks or feels like it." SECRET INVASION AFTERMATH: BETA RAY BILL – THE GREEN OF EDEN touches down April 15. And read Beta Ray Bill's first appearance on Marvel Digital Comics Unlimited! Current Mood: accomplished

Thor: Stan Lee Strikes Back
By Jim Beard
Behold! Even a Thunder God must bow before the majesty of "The Man"!
When the milestone THOR #600 hits Midgard (that's "Earth" for you civilians) on February 11 even Asgard's going to feel it. Why? Not only does it feature an incredible culmination to J. Michael Straczynski and Olivier Coipel's fan-favorite run on the title but also a new Thor
tale by the one and only Stan Lee
That's right, True Believers
, it's a 100% new story with top of the line art by David Aja and Stan's chompin' at the bit to tell you about it. In fact, he took a moment or two to talk with us from his headquarters in sunny California, and dish on his rambunctious reunion with the Mighty Thor!
Marvel.com: Stan, how did the project come about?
I got a call from [THOR editor Warren Simons] in New York and he asked if I'd write a story for THOR #600. How can you say no to something like that? I guess all the other writers were busy Marvel.com: Did you ever imagine that you'd be writing the Mighty Thor again?
Well, I'm not that surprised. Every so often I get these offers to write things that are things that I never would have expected, so now the unexpected almost becomes the expected.
For example, some time ago I was asked to write I was asked to write this Fantastic Four
story that Jack [Kirby] and I had started and never finished and I worked on that. And then I was asked to write about Stan Lee [meeting] different characters at Marvel, and then I was asked to write THE LAST FANTASTIC FOUR STORY, so I never know. I mean, I'm not surprised anymore! Marvel.com: The House of Ideas just doesn't want to let you go.
] No it's not that; they figure that, let's find out if the guy still can read and write. "I don't know, it's been so long." Marvel.com: In a nutshell, what's your new Thor story about?
Oh it's about Thor. [Laughs
] I was afraid you'd ask that. Well, can I give the plot away? Marvel.com: Just a brief outline, how's that sound?
All right. [Thor] decides, enough of all this fighting up in Asgard and so forth, he'd like to come to Earth and just be a—remember he used to be a doctor? In the beginning, he was a doctor here on Earth, he was lame, he walked with a cane. And then he would tap the cane on the ground and it would turn into the hammer of Thor and off he would go up into Asgard. I figured that after all these years and decades of fighting up in Asgard, fighting Loki
Giants and whatever monsters we could cook up, maybe he'd like to get back to Earth and just be a doctor again. Lead a nice, quiet life.
So that's the premise of the beginning. Well actually, that's not how the story begins [Laughs
]. But that's the main point of the story, but then something happens! I wish I could remember what it was. Even if I could remember, I don't think I should tell. Marvel.com: So Thor fans will be glad for your return to the character, but perhaps not Thor himself!
] Well, y'know the funny thing about that. When I used to write Thor, I had all the characters talk the way I imagined that Norse gods would talk. "Thou shalt not" and "get thee gone" and "so be it" and stuff like that. But
I've been reading the Thor books lately and he talks like you or me! So I just had him talking like a regular guy because I didn't want to throw the readers off balance.
Every balloon that I wrote, every panel, I was tempted to have him talk the way he used to, but I figured, well, that'll confuse people. Marvel.com: You've said in the past that you originally went with the Norse myths for the character because you felt that the Greek myths had been done a lot and you had always felt that the Norse myths were very strong. What more can you tell us about that?
Well, I even liked the way they looked, the old Vikings. Because to me, the Norse gods were like Vikings. I knew that [artist and Thor co-creator] Jack [Kirby] could do a great job, and he did a job that was even greater than I expected drawing these characters and coming up with costumes for them and so forth. I figured we had super heroes who could do anything, who were so powerful, and you're always trying to top yourself. So I figured, what could I do that's even bigger and better, and I figured the only thing left is a god. So now it was a case of choosing a god. I did figure the Greek/Roman gods, which are almost interchangeable, they've been done so often, so I looked around. What other gods are there that nobody's using at the moment? [And] there we were with the Norse gods. Marvel.com: So you're responsible for saving the Norse gods from obscurity, then.
Yeah, yeah, I saved them from oblivion. [Laughs
] Marvel.com: It'd be safe then to say that the visuals of Thor and company would be one of the things that you liked best about the character?
Oh, the visuals were great, and Jack Kirby deserves all the credit for that. I mean, I just said draw these guys heroic-looking and so forth. He gave them
those costumes and those wings on the head and he had Odin
looking like Odin oughtta look. It was just so great working with Jack. Marvel.com: How do you feel about David Aja's art on your THOR #600 story?
It's beautiful. I mean, its gorgeous artwork Marvel.com: Do you have any special favorites from among Thor's supporting cast?
Oh yeah, I loved his three friends; let's see if I can remember their names. Volstagg the voluptuous, and there was Hogan the Grim, and Fandral the swashbuckling or Fandral the dashing—something like that. I loved those three, because I threw them in for comedy and also for drama, whenever they were needed, but Volstagg was my favorite because he was this big, blustering, really a little bit cowardly kind of guy.
And of course I loved all of them. I loved Odin, the All-Father, and I loved Balder the Brave, and Heimdall; he could hear a butterfly flapping its wings a million miles away and he could see anything. Marvel.com: Will we see any of these characters in the new story?
] No, I didn't have room, it was just 11 pages. I wrote the whole story for the ending; the ending is the important thing. The purpose of the story is to lead up to the ending. Marvel.com: Thor has obviously endured as a character; why do you think that is?
He's a great character. And again, the way Kirby drew him he's unforgettable. He just looks so heroic and the other characters are so colorful. And of
course you have Loki, the villain. I mean one of the most important things for any super hero is to have a great super villain, and how do you do better than Loki. THOR #600 clocks in at an Asgardian 104 pages, big enough to satisfy even the most voracious and discriminating Storm Giant—and it can be yours on February 11. Get thee to a comic shop, True Believer! And check out the very first appearance of Thor, by Stan Lee and Jack Kirby, on Marvel Digital Comics Unlimited! Current Mood: excited

Thor Vol. 3 #11
Writer: J. Michael Straczynski
Artist: Olivier Coipel
Colors: Laura Martin, Paul Mounts
Letters: Chris Eliopoulos
Appearances: Fandral, Hogun, Volstagg, Balder, Loki, Don Blake, Jane Foster, Mrs Chambers, Alarr, Steve Rogers, Bob, Marian McElroy
Synopsis: In Asgard, a riotous contest is underway with Balder as the judge. Volstagg wins, but Balder declares everyone a winner and a hero. In New York, Don and Jane are having dinner together, and getting reacquainted with each other. Back in Asgard, Loki and Balder discuss their place in this new world, with many Asgardians feeling more and more caged. They are interrupted when a blood duel breaks out among Alarr and another warrior, which ends with Alarr being killed. Balder tries to explain to them that they can be killed easier in this mortal plane, and asks if this is how they honor the gift of rebirth. Loki replies with a question of her own. If a life is spent with no opportunity for valor and no real struggle, then what is that life truly worth? Back in New York, Don sees Jane off, and notices a television in a store window with a news program talking about the one year anniversary of the death of Captain America. Don goes to a statue of Captain America, and changes to Thor. Thor says that Cap once swore an oath upon Mjolnir, that if any of their voices were raised in summons, he would come though all the forces of heaven and earth stood in his way, and with that Thor cries - "Avengers Assemble!" and with a crack of thunder and lightning, the spirit of Steve Rogers greets his old friend. Thor asks him if he would have him avenge his murder, and of course Steve replies no. But he can feel the world, and more than anything, he's upset that none of them get it. It was never really about him, it was about the country, and that none of them appear even close to understanding. Thor tells him that he should let Steve return to his rest, but before he does, he tells Steve that he has lived many lifetimes, but the greatest honor he has ever known was fight beside him and calling him friend. And with that, Steve's spirit fades away. Thor then flies up into space, and causes a worldwide media blackout by interrupting the satellites, giving Steve a minute of silence against the onslaught of programming about him. Thor then returns to Asgard, where Balder says that they must talk. The next day, one newscaster seemed to understand the significance of what happened, saying that with the worldwide blackout of every newscast, radio, satellite and cable broadcast, then they call came back on one minute later, it was if the entire world offered a minute of silence in memory of the single death that changed the future for all time.
