Marvel Comics has given retailers a challenge for their customers, regarding Thor #4, the issue that saw the god of Thunder get to work as the Herald of Galactus and ahead of meeting The Black Winter.
The first scene saw Thor take Galactus' power to become the Herald of Galactus in his full cosmic totality.
Before going on to absorb the four worlds that Galactus needed to face the Black Winter. The first three were lifeless or could be evacuated. The final world was not and as a result, Galactus ate them all.
Did something happen between those panels to somehow save Thor from being an accessory to mass genocide? Or is there something coming in Thor which might damn him ever further? Thor #6 is out on August 19th. Here's how the upcoming solicitations are looking.
