Anybody care to expand on why the norse were using m-16s?
I need to dig out my Simonson Thor comics now. But my hazy memory says that for some reason the Norse are fighting a demonic invasion of New York alongside the U.S. Army. And some of the Norsemen, unfamiliar with modern Midgard technology, basically see assault rifles in action and say "Huh. Cool. You know, we could use these...."
david c is right. The military is leftover arsenal from when the US military and asgardians were fighting together.
Add to your list of badass final stands: Poncho on the tree, from Predator. C'mon now! That was awesome!
Woot! Thanks, Dave.
al cracka, you are so correct about the Predator thing - Poncho gets bonus style points for slashing his chest with a bowie knife prior to his final stand. That's quality.
One word is enough to define this issue of Thor:AIRWOLF!Another issue that fully deserves a F@%* YEAH moment: Thor had his entire body shattered by a combination of Hela's curse and Loki's machinations. So Thor gets himself a mean golden armor, whups all the enemies Loki had thrown at him, then returns to Loki's castle – and casually breaks his brother's arm with Mjolnir, to demonstrate that even his temper had limits. The look on Loki's face during that scene is priceless.After reading that scene with Thor and Loki, yelling "F%*# YEAH!" is almost inevitable. Unless you're dead inside, of course.
Another high point of Simonson's run was the issue or two that were devoted to Eilif, the last Viking.-Ralf Haring
Good Lord. I've never ead the comic, never been a big Thor fan, and I misted up over that.Now that's classic.Now that's why modern comics lean towards suck...
Can't you just see Uncle Walt hunched over his drawing board, sketching his various adventures of Thor, mumbling "F@*%yeahF@*%yeahF@*%yeah" over and over again, only pausing occasionally to yell, "Weezie! By Hela's ample bosom, bring me more ink! And mead! Forsooth!"For a good five years the guy was overcome with the dizzying sweet opiate of eddic escapades and the glory of excelsior! He was a living, breathing F@*% Yeah Machine.
Thank you Dave! Thank you! Thank you! Thank you!You make me remember when I liked comics.*sigh*I need to dig out Simonson's run on Thor now too.
