IF YOU ONLY GOT YOUR INFORMATION FROM WIKIPEDIA YOU WOULDN'T KNOW THAT THIS THOR COMIC EXISTS.


Cover for MARVEL ZOMBIES DESTROY #5, the series that shows what happens when the Zombie Plague reaches Asgard and reminds us of the real world connection between Nazis and Norse Mythology.
Marvel Zombies
     Briefly, Thor appears as a cannibalistic zombie wielding a makeshift version of a hammer composed of a concrete block and pipe as he is no longer worthy to wield Mjolnir, which he breaks when trying to attack the Silver Surfer. When the Silver Surfer is finally struck down, only a handful of zombies manage to eat a piece of his body, and Thor is not one of them. Those who did consume the Silver Surfer acquire his cosmic powers, and Thor, along with the rest of the zombies, is seemingly slaughtered. Giant-Man can be seen throwing away his skeleton after burning his body.[volume & issue needed]
     In Marvel Zombies 2, Thor briefly makes a cameo appearance after since the cosmic-powered Hulk killed a number of zombies because of his hunger pains, declaring that he will kill and devour everyone in the place.[volume & issue needed]
      But in Marvel Zombies: Dead Days- a one shot prequel to the main events of the Zombie universe-, Thor is amongst the heroes on the S.H.I.E.L.D. helicarrier who survived the first wave of the zombie plague. After Reed Richards was driven insane following his construction of a device to travel to other universes, Thor, on Nick Fury's orders, destroyed the device rather than using it to escape to another dimension unaffected by the virus, in order to ensure that what had happened to their world couldn't happen to another.
