Will Three Thors Stop Malekith Beheading Odin With Venom? The War Of The Realms #6 Cover Revealed…

I'm not sure hoew many times Odin has died in The War Of The Realms so far. But the revealed cover to issue 6 seems to have had quite an effect and sent advance preorders for the finale shooting up the chart. Recent issues of the event has seen the Venom symbiote, now separated from Eddie Brock, fighting alongside the War Avengers in Europe, only to be defeated by Malekth, the Dark Elf.

With Venom's historical relationship to Asgardian weapon, the Necrosword bound to come up. Formed of the first symbiote, whirled by Knull, All-Black, the Necrosword is also the weapon Gorr the God Butcher used to slay his victims in Jason Aaron and Esad Ribic's Thor: God of Thunder series. With Jason Aaron writing War Of The Realms and Donny Cates tying Venom and the Necrosword together, connective tissue this is bound to be a thing in upcoming issues…

With the cover to The War Of The Realms #6 by Arthur Adams now revealed…. with Malekith using Venom both as symbiote but to be part of the Black Knight's Ebony Blade as his own version of the All-Black Necrosword, a weapon that can slay gods. And potentially about to decapitate Odin. Unless he can be stopped by three Thors from across time – Young Thor, Thor and Old God Thor… or Captain America on a Pegasus.

Will Malekith Behead Odin With Venom?

It's that kind of comic.But where will it end? And how many Thors will be left? Have all three disappeared?
