    *booming announcer voice*FINALLY! The question that caused the Odinson to become UNWORTHY to wield Mjolnir...{insert trumpet sounds here}The question that has plagued fans of Thor since Original Sin was published back in 2014...{insert drum roll here} What did Nick Fury whisper to Thor?!{insert rumbling crowd here}True Believer, THIS volume has the ANSWER!{insert wild cheering here}AND. IT. IS...Quite possibly the most underwhelming reveal in the history of underwhelming reveals.{insert squeaky fart noise here}I read it a few days ago, and I can't even remember the exact details of that nonsense. And (after all this time!) that's how forgettable contents of this SECRET WHISPER bullshit turned out to be. But the gist of it was this: (view spoiler)[Gods are mean and selfish. So none of you are worthy. (hide spoiler)]Neener, neener...you Asgardian bitch.Yeah. So, this was one of those lubeless ass-fuckings that Marvel seems to deliver on a regular basis to its long-suffering fans. Thanks, Marvel.Ok, but besides that? You've got lots of mythology, cosmic-space stuff, powerful alien beings, a quest for the Ultimate hammer, and Beta Ray Bill! <--fuck, yeah!This wasn't a bad comic. Aaron is a talented writer, and Thor (both Thors, actually) seems to be the sort of character that he excels at. I mean, everything leading up to the reveal is good, and I was fully invested in the whole New Hammer storyline, as well. Although, that was yet another wet fart-like conclusion. BUT.At least Arron only jerked me around for a few issues with that one.Thank you, sir!So it probably sounds like I'm whining an awful lot about this one. And I am!But the writing is good, the quests are interesting, the characters are cool, and that goat is bitchin'.It's not terrible.Recommended for Fans of Thor.["br"]>["br"]>["br"]>["br"]>["br"]>["br"]>["br"]>["br"]>["br"]>["br"]>["br"]>["br"]>["br"]>["br"]>["br"]>["br"]>["br"]>["br"]>["br"]>["br"]>["br"]>["br"]>["br"]>["br"]>["br"]>["br"]>["br"]>["br"]>["br"]>["br"]>["br"]>["br"]>["br"]>["br"]>["br"]>["br"]>["br"]>["br"]>["br"]>["br"]>["br"]>["br"]>["br"]>["br"]>["br"]>["br"]>["br"]>["br"]>["br"]>["br"]>["br"]>["br"]>["br"]>["br"]>["br"]>

    Ye gods this one’s been a long time coming! THREE BLUMMIN YEARS AGO in the Original Sin event, Nick Fury whispered something to Thor who immediately became “unworthy” and therefore unable to lift Mjolnir the hammer. A lady (I won’t spoil her identity in case you’re not caught up) picked up Mjolnir and became the new God of Thunder. Jason Aaron finally reveals what Fury whispered in The Unworthy Thor - and thankfully it was worth the wait! Well, the reveal is satisfying, and the question of whether or not Thor will be worthy again at the end of this book is kinda exciting. When he walks up to the hammer at last and grips the handle - will his hammer take him back, will he be the God of Thunder once more? The thing is that cool stuff, the reason many readers will be picking this up, could be done in a single issue and this book is five issues long, so a lot of this is uninteresting filler. The Collector and Thanos also want Mjolnir and so Thor, joined by Beta Ray Bill for no reason, have to fight them and blah blah blah - it’s not tense or gripping in the least. We know they’ll never be able to lift it; I mean if Thor’s unworthy then those creeps definitely are too, so it’s a moot point - they’re just there to give Thor something to do. And we didn’t really need to catch up with what Unworthy Thor’s been up to anyway which is just drinking and fighting. The padding is unentertaining rubbish. Olivier Coipel’s art is looking a little worse for wear these days - it’s a lot scratchier in this book than its been in the past. There are some minor developments in the overall Thor storyline which are probably included to make those readers following Aaron’s Thor run read this even though it’s not very good - I didn’t care about who the mysterious new Watcher is or who Thanos is getting jiggy with these days. The fifth and final issue of this miniseries is unfortunately the only part that’s worth reading - The Unworthy Thor is an aptly named book.

    Odinson learns that another mjornir existsand he seeks to claim it for his own.With the Unworthy Thor, I expected too much and got much less than I even dared to fear. Words can't truly express how disappointed I was with this. I unfortunately can't explain either without spoiling it for others. Suffice to say this is only for long term Thor comics fans.

    The Unworthy Thor is the next chapter in Jason Aaron's ongoing epic Asgardian saga, and it's unsurprisingly great!Since Odinson became unworthy, he hasn't been around much, so this mini-series was desperately needed. The series follows him and Beta Ray Bill to the Old Asgard, where the Ultimate Thor's hammer is supposed be. But it turns out the Old Asgard has... vanished?So the premise sounds intriguing, and it mostly delivers. It is an epic and fun adventure, albeit not very deep. I was very happy to see Thori the helhound again, as well as Beta Ray Bill and several other characters. But the main and most important thing about this volume is that we finally find out what the OG Nick Fury whispered to Thor to make him unworthy. And it... kinda makes sense? I'm sure many people will find the answer underwhelming, but I think it really does make sense, at least from Odinson's perspective.Oliver Coipel is a veteran Thor artist, and he does an excellent job drawing this miniseries. The artwork looks properly epic and gorgeous, even better with Matt Wilson's vibrant colors. This is a very pretty comic!Jason Aaron's Thor run has been excellent since the very beginning, and The Unworthy Thor is a worthy addition to this ongoing saga. To everybody who follows the series, this is mandatory reading! And it's hela good. Verily.

    Amazing! I'm just gonna come off the bat and just say this comic is the best I've read all year! So I have not read any of the Female Thor comics, really want to, just haven't gotten around to it yet, but since then we haven't seen Male Thor in a while, and were all wandering where is he? Well this comic shows us. Thor is not calling himself Thor anymore, now he just calls himself Odinson, cause he feels unworthy of even having the name Thor; basically he's just down on his luck, till he hears of another Mjolnir which once belonged to the Ultimate Thor and has been left untouched since Secret Wars. So Thor goes off to find it, but of course a badass weapon just lying around is gonna attract the attention of villains who want it as well! The main reason I like this story so much is just of how well Aaron writes it, its a very personal story for Thor, and its executed perfectly! Its also quite dark, its not like the upcoming Thor: Ragnarok (even though the premise and character designs is very similar?), no "He's a friend from work!!!" jokes. Artwork is also amazing, its dark and gritty and fits Aarons Writing! Only thing I'm not too hot on is the ending, I guess its best ending for the character, but it also felt a little anti-climatic... But otherwise, this was an amazing mini which I fully recommend to any Thor Fan, or anyone really!

    The Odinson is back and finally stops moping in his mead. Ultimate Thor's hammer has landed in Asgard and everyone wants it even though anyone who touches it is disintegrated. So what follows is 5 issues of fighting over the hammer followed by finally revealing the secret Thor heard during Original Sin that made him unworthy. It's simple but I thought a worthy payoff.The Good: Anytime Jason Aaron and Olivier Coipel work on a Thor book is a good thing.The Bad: Coipel's art is missing that finish that made him one of the best artists out there. I don't know if it's because he's not using an inker or that he's just shifting to a scratchier style, but the art is less polished.The Ugly: Marvel really botched Original Sin. It was a really neat premise and outside of a Hulk / Iron Man comic and a really terrible Winter Soldier series, they wait 4 years to finally tell us what Thor heard. At this point, with all the reboots and number one issues, half their readers probably aren't even aware that the Odinson used to be Thor.

    I'm behind on the current ongoing Thor book, but I wanted to read this because it follows the Odinson and is kind of a sequel to Original Sin and Secret Wars/Jason Aaron's Secret Wars tie-in Thors.And man, I love Jason Aaron's run on Thor, and this is a worthy addition to it. We follow Odinson on his quest for the Ultimate Thor's hammer but he's not the only one who seeks it, Thanos also wants the hammer. It did feel a little like Thanos was included in this just because Marvel are pushing them as much as they can at the moment, but him wanting a powerful Marvel universe weapon does make sense and since I love Infinity, I liked seeing Black Swan and Proxima Midnight again. Beta Ray Bill also joins the Odinson and having him in a book is always a good thing.This is a really good Thor book, but the only thing that lets it down is Coipel isn't on art for the full book. The guy seems to struggle to even get five issues a year out now which is a shame because he draws an awesome Thor. They do use it as an excuse to get other well known Thor artists to do some pages, I just hate that we keep getting Olivier Coipel announced on cool sounding books and then for reasons which I don't know, he can't fully finish the book.

    This volume is fantastic, not only is it intriguing and exciting, but it manages to build upon existing elements of the Thor mithos. It gives the Thor series consistency, and propelles it forward without getting too crazy. I’ve been reading The Mighty Thor since the beginning and this is a welcome addition to the story that takes place in past, present and future. Also the integration of Thor and certain elements of the “Cosmic” landscape of the Marvel universe makes that the stories that can be told, way more fun and misterious.

    2,5*Action-fun but underwhelming when it comes to so-called "revelations".Five issues to tell us why is Thor unworthy is at the very least 2 supernumerary. Or even three. Or four maybe.Aaron delays as much as possible and even beyond that the famous line Fury whispered to Thor in Original Sin. It's not rotten, mind you, it even makes sense in a way but after all the sound and fury it feels half-useless all the same. The kind of thing that fizzles and dies without a Bang.Olivier Coipel tries new tricks artwise and I'm not too keen on it. It's still above average but doesn't feel the same. Not in a positive way anyway. He also tends to overload his page with vignettes and to consider reading conventions (left to right, y'know) as not fashionable anymore. I happen to disagree.

    The rise of the goddess Thor meant that unresolved story threads with the Odinson would be unresolved now that he was demoted from this own book. This spin-off series, even if it only lasted for five issues, meant that the writer Jason Aaron could finally tie-off, if not all, a few loose ends from Thor: God of Thunder, and other books Aaron penned.Another bonus is that several staples from old Thor runs, not just Aaron's, returned, which was rewarding for long-time fans and readers of the thunder god. Here are some key moments from this trade:1. Original Sin closure - The whisper that brought down the Odinson is revealed, and it's a reference to Aaron's "God-Butcher" arc. (view spoiler)["Gorr was right." (hide spoiler)]2. Secret Wars and Thors aftermath - The fate of the Ultimate Thor's hammer is revealed and it's the impetus of this story.3. Return of fan-favorite characters - Beta Ray Bill returns in this story, but his presence, though necessary, was as substantial as this reader would have wanted it. The return of Thori, Kid Loki's hel-hound named after his favorite brother from Kieron Gillen's Journey Into Mystery, is shaping to be a welcome addition to the Thor cast. Never be it said that the Trickster Loki gave Thor any lasting gifts, I hope his new canine friend would be it.4. Seeding future stories - The remnants of Thanos' Black Order and the Black Swan (from Jonathan Hickman's Infinity and Secret Wars) made a play for the Mjolnir from another universe and hints at a showdown with the Odinson. Especially with reveal of Thanos' new ally, there's going to be Asgardian flavor in a future event to come. (view spoiler)[The return of Hela is going to be a game changer. (hide spoiler)]

    As a Thor story this was exceptional. Certainly the best work done with Thor--as opposed to Jane Foster whose heroic identity is currently Thor, Goddess of Thunder--since the Odinson lost his hammer. Still, strong as the story was, and as nice as it is to see Thor restored to some kind of equanimity that moves beyond the rather self-pitying character he's been since the miniseries focusing on Nick Fury and the Watcher's murder (the name of which I cannot remember for the life of me...). The end however, where the whisper that felled the Thunder God is finally revealed, was weak in my opinion. To my thinking, Aaron had already neatly resolved this particular doubt long before, and it never would have been enough to have the effect on Thor that Marvel has seen fit to make happen. Personally, I think it was just an excuse to replace him with the Jane Foster Thor. So I guess it adds up to being an excellent story given Marvel's basic premise for this character over the past several years. As great a story as I think can be told with the Odin Son with continuity in its status quo. Still, if all along the whisper was what this book reveals it to be, than this continuity never should have come to pass and they should have found another way to make Jane Thor if they were determined to do so.

    While on one hand this seemed to be building up to something, on the other hand, some of it felt like filler. This is the road to worthiness for Thor, or rather Odinson. In this story, an old friend comes to visit, he gains a new friend, and there's a hint of a new Thor. The other big news is that the whisper that made Thor unworthy is revealed, although it may require you to do some rereading of Aaron's run to grasp the full meaning.Coipel does the art on the first two issues, and it looks different from his previous runs. Not sure if it is better or for worse. The rest of the art is average.Again, Aaron's run seems to be building to something big. I'm not sure what it is yet, but it needs to be wrapped up IMO.

    The main Thor series has a female Thor running the show after Odinson became unworthy to wield his hammer Mjolnir during 'Original Sin'. In this limited series, the Odinson goes on a mission to find the Mjolnir from the Ultimate universe and save it and Asgard from the clutches of the Collector. In terms of continuity this is a confusing one. For Odinson it follows "Original Sin", for the Ultimate Mjolnir it follows "Secret Wars", for Thanos is follows "Civil War II", there's plenty of references back to the "Thor: God of Thunder" run and even some to the "Journey Into Mystery" days. Fortunately I've been following Thor since God of Thunder #1 but I did fear this might get lost for newer readers. The story was superb. On the one hand it's a fairly simple mission to rescue Asgard. Odinson, old mate Beta Ray Bill and new mate Thori the Helhound are collected by the Collector, along with Asgard itself. All the while Odinson is dealing with the fact his is no longer worthy what this actually means. We've seen little of him in this state and it's a different, less heroic take on the character. He's almost an anti-hero here. Also, we finally learn what the Watcher said to Thor that made him unworthy which is great and a little surprising. Oliver Coipel is on art duties here and he completely smashes it. Unworthy Thor himself looks great and there's epic battle scenes and fabulous landscapes. We get a glimpse of young Thor and the formerly worthy Thor, which has always worked well, and other artists take charge for these short sections. Whilst I do like the current Mighty Thor run I miss the Odison and the God of Thunder run days. This was the perfect continuation of that epic run. A bit too wrapped up in continuity for some readers I think but for me my only complaint is this isn't an ongoing series!

    This is definitely required reading for anyone who has been following Jason Aaron's amazing run on Thor. If you are interested in reading this, I highly recommend starting with Aaron's The Mighty Thor Volume 1, as this builds and pays off on storylines set up in that series. If you've been wondering what Nick Fury whispered to Thor during Original Sin that made Thor unworthy of lifting Mjolnir, read this comic!

    Flipping Through Floppies*[3.5 Stars]Jason Aaron's Thor run is one of the few superhero comics I follow in floppies, so I had to get this miniseries about Odinson's quest for Ultimate Chekov's Mjolinr. The story was more captivating than I had expected, and I finally got an answer to what Nick Fury said to Thor, like, what? Two or three years ago? In any case, it is as satisfying an answer as I could have imagined, and continues to build on Aaron's theme of "worthiness" that has been present during this entire run.It was also great to see Olivier Coipel back on a Thor comic, if only for a miniseries. There's lots of Thor looking cool in this one, and a surprising tour of some of Marvel's baddies that likely sets up the rest of the year in The Mighty Thor. It's a bit of a shame when the fill-in artists drop in, but that complaint is constant against today's comics at the Big Two and Hickman's Infinity was the last event that used multiple artists to proper effect. The points lost here were for two reasons. One, the aforementioned fill-in artists. Two, I don't see why this couldn't have been the B-story in The Mighty Thor over a few months. Certainly, it is more lucrative to pump out as many Thor comics as humans will buy, but I expect a miniseries to be self-contained. The Unworthy Thor is patently not self-contained. It follows from the rest of Aaron's run and lays groundwork for what's to follow.All in all, fun miniseries, but I'm more excited to see how this all plays out in the main series.*Flipping Through Floppies is a semi-regular review series of single-issue comics (known in some circles as floppies) that I follow. I tend to read at least two trades worth (10-12 issues) of a comic before offering a review. Basically, this is me sampling fresh new comics as they come out to help guide you to entertaining series.

    [Read as single issues]Not content with writing a best-selling, critically acclaimed Marvel series, Jason Aaron launches a secondary mini-series focused on the other Thor. You know, the dude Thor. The one with the hamm-oh wait.Instead, we get the Odinson finally buckling down, cutting out all the moping and the drinking (well, maybe not that last one) as he heads out to reclaim a hammer, if not his own. When Beta Ray Bill arrives and tells the Odinson that another hammer exists thanks to the magic/retcon powers of Secret Wars, it becomes a universe-wide scramble for dominance as The Collector, Thanos, the Black Order, Bill, and even a few surprise characters dash to claim the power for their own.Along the way we get some long-awaited reveals of varying impact - the mystery of what Nick Fury whispered to Thor to make him Unworthy in the first place had gone on so long now that whatever the reason was never going to make everyone happy, but the answer is an interesting philosophical quandary that the Odinson can't punch his way out of. And this mini leads into the next storyline in Mighty Thor as another brand new Thor pops up too.Olivier Coipel draws the majority of this series with his usual panache, but of course 5 issues in a row is too much for him so he calls in some aid from Kim Jacinto, Frazer Irving, and Pascal Alixe as the series goes on. There are never any massive changes, and Irving's unique style is reserved for flashback sequences, but it's a shame Coipel didn't manage to draw it all.

    10 stars out of 5, seriously good. First Thor needs to mourn and pout, but now we're seeing the fire coming back into him. Perfectly delivered what it promised! This is also the first time I've read Thor's voice and not cringed. There's a message in here I really liked, but I think this is much better read coming in blindly. If you have read it, I'll be more than happy to discuss it though :D Also why wondering if any of this comes into play for the cinematic universe. Hmmm.

    At the end of the "Original Sin" event, Thor hears a secret from Nick Fury and becomes unworthy of the Hammer of Thor. We all know that the Hammer is picked up by Jane Foster and the Thor we've known for ages now calls himself Odinson (or the Unworthy Thor). This story is a continuation of the story of Odinson.Old Asgard has been taken by the Collector. In its realm, a Mjolnir lies waiting for a Thor to claim it. Odinson, with friend Beta Ray Bill at his side, goes to collect it. Throw in a claim by the Black Order, trying to get the hammer for Thanos, a new look, and some new friends, and you have the lead up to a truly defining moment for the Odinson. He reaches the hammer... and realizes it is not for him to take. (I think this shows he is more worthy than ever before.) And, finally, we hear what was whispered to him. "Gorr was right", referring to when the God-Killer (see the series Thor: God of Thunder) said that no god is worthy. Nice to really see him begin to accept who he really is.The story ends with some foreshadowing when Thanos teams up with Hela.Overall, a great story, and one that lived up to the hype of waiting for it. Recommend.

    Full disclosure: I read this in single issues. However, considering the tack that Marvel is on with its graphic novels (shoehorning back issues into the trade to pad its length and increase its price), that probably works to this trade's advantage.Foremost: Coipel's art is so wonderfully outstanding! It glosses over how loose the story is well and keeps the reader engaged in an otherwise s0-so story. My problem with the story isn't the ending (where the words Nick Fury whispered to The Odinson to make him "Unworthy" are revealed), although that was underwhelming as well; it was the narrative 'hooks' that ended each issue. On the last page of each single issue I got so excited: "Oh, this is going to be good!" I said to myself. But upon starting each new issue, it never met expectations -- and in some places seemed almost to forget what was set up. I have a feeling this is even more deflating when reading the whole story all together, but maybe I'm wrong and it won't be as much of a build-up when all you have to do is turn the page instead of wait one month.Worth the read.

    A really unfortunate bit of wheel-spinning. Which is too bad, because this has a great premise and it has some great characters, including not just Thor, but a certain dog and a certain goat. There's a lot of good writing, just no good PLOTTING. The whole comic is so pointless that it feels like $15.99 for nothing. And then there's *THE SECRET*. The thing that has kept Thor unworthy for years. It's just a bit of existential Asgardian angst. Yeah, it would have been hard to live up to all the build-up, but this is insulting.

    enjoyable Jason Aaron's The Unworthy Thor has Thor without his hammer but trying to maintain his purpose. There are a lot of plot and design elements that seem to make it into the Ragnorok film, but let differences in both tone and set up keeps it from feeling too similar. While I still prefer Walter Simonson's Thor to any others, Aaron's work is good and welcome!
