In this episode:

Mike and Ed discuss Thor’s tempter tantrum that tore up city property and demolished at least one private citizen’s car. Stark Corp. has volunteered to pay for the damage this time, but what is the long term solution when superheroes behave badly? Also, Thor went away with an alien robot; or was that the government sending the god to his room for a time out?

In this issue:

Thor acts belligerently in New York City, and people are scared. The Avengers race to the scene to see if they can placate Thor. They don’t, but nothing happens, Thor is in a mood. Meanwhile in Asgard, Loki is bending the ear of Odin and poisoning his mind about Thor. And then, Thor returns to Asgard to meet with his father, although Odin refused to see him. Loki then reaches into the future to influenced Zarrko, the Tomorrow Man, from the distant future, to return to the 20th century to battle Thor. Zarrko, who had forgotten about his interaction with Thor, remembers, and returns to our time with a giant robot, whereupon they cause wanton destruction. Thor meets them in battle and finds himself unable to overcome the robot (as Odin has halved his strength). In order to save the Earth, Thor agrees to return to the 23rd century with Zarrko to do his bidding.
