It looks like a variety of hammers/maces/axes he's spinning. That's interesting.

But the fake arm is not. He's a god -- let him grow the damn thing back. We've already got Bucky, and I've never been fan of maimed heroes. (Looking at you, Peter David Aquaman.) 

So is anyone keeping track of what titles are getting new first issues? I think Black Panther and Hulk are. Is it going to be every title with legacy numbering?

What's happened to Jane Foster? Did she get killed off?

Jane Foster has cancer, and every time she becomes Thor it cancels her chemotherapy. In the latest issue, everyone from her regular doctor to Dr. Strange said if she changed into Thor one more time it would kill her. At the end of the issue, she did and ran off to fight Mangog, who just whipped Thor and Odin.

This storyline, by the way, is titled "The Death of Thor."

So there's that.

Cool, thanks.  I knew she had cancer. I hadn't kept track of her current storyline. I was sort of hoping they wouldn't kill her off.

Speak of the devil ...

Don't get me wrong, I can understand that from a story-telling standpoint, not killing her would be seen as a cop-out, but I still don't like it.

On the other hand, if they do kill her off, I hope they don't magic her back to life in three years.

I am also sick of resurrections. Don't bother to kill people if it's only temporary.

"That's just what Jesus said, sir."

You'd think Christianity would collapse in the Marvel Universe for that reason. What's so special about Jesus that he came back from the dead? The X-Men call that "Tuesday."

I suppose it depends on how much you think the general public knows or believes about these "resurrections", and how widespread of a phenomenon "resurrection" is.

There you go making sense again. This is disturbing.

Of course, even in the Bible, Jesus wasn't the only one who resurrected from the dead (I'm thinking of Lazarus and the centurion's daughter). A Christian would probably say that Jesus was still the only one who died for our sins, and harrowed Hell, and so on.
