Review: Thor, Volume 2: Who Holds the Hammer?

Thor, Volume 2: Who Holds the Hammer? Thor, Volume 2: Who Holds the Hammer? by Jason Aaron
My rating: 3 of 5 stars

The identity of the new Thor is finally revealed, and it’s….*gasp* WHO?!?

Just kidding. This came out almost 5 years ago so that info has already fallen so far into the realm of common nerd knowledge even the reveal of the cast of the next Thor movie gave it away.

Since this a modern comic we can’t go more than 15 minutes without changing the title slightly and releasing a new #1, and with Secret Wars looming this version of Thor had a limited shelf life. Still, I very much enjoyed this particular run with a mysterious woman wielding the hammer as original Thor struggles to deal with his new unworthy status. It’s short but we get a pretty great battle between new Thor and the Destroyer that was sent by Odin just because he’s being an incredible asshat about a woman having the name and power of Thor. (Imagine that.) The annual included here has 3 lightweight but fun stories too.

Now I guess I’m onto the next title which is called Thors. We’ll see how long that lasts.
