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.

Unlike when comic writer Michael Straczynski was asked to have Thor participate in a crossover event, Bill Messner-Loebs didn't quit the book.


"The one concern at the back of my head was that of being pulled into a Big Event that could affect the forward momentum of the book and alter its direction. I’ve said elsewhere that in many cases — and this isn’t just Marvel, the trend is pandemic — such an event can sometimes result in the individual books serving the event, rather than the other way around, and you have to spend months and issues afterward stitching everything back together. I’m the kind of writer who likes to write in a straight line and know for certain the terrain he’s standing upon. Some writers can handle all that and never break a sweat. For me, it’s just not something I can do competently. That’s a shortcoming on my part and I recognize it as such."
