  • The Devourer King is part of Donny Cates' upcoming run on Thor, along with The Black Winter.
  • The Black Stars were a series of five gigantic star-sized planets that travelled through the universe consuming other worlds for fuel, as seen once in Thor #218.
  • Thor: The World Beyond from 1971 saw  Thor returns to Asgard from Earth so that he might travel into the World Beyond for his father Odin, however he finds that he may have arrived too late…

THE FINAL CHAPTER OF THE YEARS-SPANNING, AWARD-WINNING SAGA!
The sun has gone black. Midgard isn't far behind. The entire Multiverse is dying – and with it, the last of the gods. A millennium ago, the God of Thunder heard a whisper: "Gorr was right." Now Gorr the God of God-Butchers ascends to his final murder: the All-Father of all existence. Plus, a who's who of Jason's past THOR collaborators and a few surprise guests help close out the story in thunderous style!
