After the events of issue 350, Thor and company continue their battle with Surtur’s horde, even as the fiery giant makes his way towards Asgard.
Meanwhile Balder and Karnilla continue to trade barbs in the land of the Norns.
As the battle rages on, Thor leaves Beta Ray in charge of New York’s defense as he flies after Surtur. He arrives to watch his fiery foe confront Heimdall on the Rainbow Bridge that connects Midgard (specifically New York) with Asgard.
Wait a minute! How could they cast Idris Elba as Heimdall? Clearly Mr. Elba's beard is in no way bushy enough.
Heimdall fights valiantly, but to no avail… even as Surtur shatters the Rainbow Bridge.
They just don't make rainbows like they used to.
Thor saves Heimdall from falling in to the ether, then moves to confront Surtur himself. But Surtur bats our hero around like a flee as he moves forward… and confronts the Lord of Asgard himself, Odin.
Super-Dinosaur is one of those comics that is just average. It doesn’t offer much but an entertainment value.
The issue begins with Dynamo tells his cohort to wake up. There is a little anger between the two but then the Earthcore Elite attack! The two men run outside onto a balcony onto their ship. Meanwhile, an imprisoned dinosaur-alien asks for the attention of the young boy at Earthcore HQ. He asks for the boy because the alien considers the boy smarter than the other humans he has met along with having gotten used to the boy’s image. Meanwhile, back at the Dynamo Dome, Super-Dinosaur suits up with some new equipment preparing for battle. After a few cheesy lines, Erin, his human friend, and Super-Dinosaur go off to battle. The two escaped men from earlier begin to ramble about the progress one has made or the other’s wife won’t be released from her kidnappers. Then, it goes back to Super-Dinosaur who is surprised to see Erin following him. He is worried about her when suddenly a dinosaur commando comes and attacks them. They battle, and Erin becomes extremely worried. Meanwhile, the little kid tries to interrogate the dinosaur with no such luck. He defends the human race by saying we’ll see in response to whether they will survive the future strike by the dinosaur-aliens or not. Next, Super-Dinosaur continues to fight as more commandos come out ready for battle. Erin is surrounded as we leave their tale for a moment, and move back to the escaped men. The man with his kidnapped wife is happy to see her again. The boy finally makes some progress with the dinosaur-alien who announces his wish to go home and taking the boy with him!!
The writing for this comic is just cheesy. Robert Kirkman of The Walking Dead makes me wish he sticks on that. He seems to be writing cheese just for the sake of cheese. I do not know how else to describe this action-packed over-the-top story that is not only unrealistic in the way it portrays humans but also makes me question them letting a young boy interrogate a giant dinosaur-alien. Despite that, Jason Howard seems to be having the time of his life drawing this, and who wouldn’t its dinosaurs….. However, one wonders if they could not have come up with a nobler concept like Jurassic Strikeforce 5…..
