The All-New Thor Corps In Immortal Thor #5

The All-New Thor Corps In Immortal Thor #5

Jay Cochran - September 16, 2023
Marvel’s original podcast series “This Week in Marvel,” host Angélique Roché spoke with mastermind writer Al Ewing about his hit run of IMMORTAL THOR! Coming this December, IMMORTAL THOR #5 will hit stands with incredible art by Martín Cóccolo and a stunning cover by Alex Ross.

In the upcoming issue, fans are introduced to the all-new Thor Corps! Toranos has returned — and to face him, the King of Asgard has gathered his army. But if even an army of storm gods could not stop the Elder God of Thunder...what then? This is the story of THE IMMORTAL THOR... and the battle that will define him.

On writing another Immortal story, Ewing said, “I had it in my head for a while that I wanted to do a second Immortal title because I wanted another swing at something that was that big and meaningful.” He continued, “I was also looking to do something a bit more optimistic. Hulk is a very horror-based character, and I was writing a lot of heavy emotional stuff in there… I think Thor, in his nature, is a high fantasy character… so you sort of write that from a position of hope. That’s nice – it’s nice to have a little hope!”

On the reveal of the all-new Thor Corps in issue #5, Ewing points fans to the cover, saying, “Well, let’s talk about that cover… it’s basically everyone – well, not everybody because Eric Masterson is sadly no longer with us – but, a whole bunch of people who have previously been Thor are Thor again... to back up Thor. The main Thor!”

Fans can listen to the full conversation on today’s episode of “This Week in Marvel” wherever they subscribe to podcasts. Check out the IMMORTAL THOR #5 cover by Alex Ross below, and don’t forget to grab the issue when it hits stands this December!

Issue 1 was phenomenal!! He's speaking in Old English too. Not quite as strong as the old days, but more than recently. He really loses something when not written that way.

I hope so, but at the same time this could just be Alex Ross showing Thor in his classic outfit. If they're doing him the way he should be done, I'm all aboard.

Just saw the cover to Avenger #4. Thor is back to his original outfit, so it looks like it's actually happening!

If you haven't read them. He has two recent Defenders 5 parters that are awesome! The teams and art are pretty amazing. I really want a series based on them with Blue Marvel at the helm of the intersection of mysticism and science.

Dope. Everything Al Ewing has done at Marvel has been gold so far. Mighty Avengers (despite the Greg Land art on the first volume), Ultimates and Immortal Hulk were all good as hell.

If the cover's any indication (don't judge a book by its cover) then they may be doing a back-to-basics approach....and as the kids today say.....I'm Here For It.
