Read full description of the books:
Mutant Massacre was the first of crossover events that occurred in the X-Men line of titles annually. It started as a sales initiative to push sales of its books during traditionally sluggish months.
The storyline has several key moments, like the X-Men & Marauders slugfest, scores of mutant death, Psylocke’s debut with the X-Men and the first Wolverine and Sabretooth all out brawl. It has a great artistic line-up, featuring contributions from John Romita, Jr., Walter Simonson, Alan Davis and Sal Buscema. It had a lot going for it, but it was two issues of a mainstream Marvel book that was folded into the event that I remember fondly.
Appreciating these two issues of Thor require reading it in context with the other titles of the crossover since it sets up the situation Thor finds himself involved. The first issue starts with Thor taking time off from Asgard to re-establish a human identity as a construction worker. The story takes on a domestic tone with Thor spending the night with his foreman’s family and just doing household tasks like cleaning dishes and telling a nighttime story to his host’s children. This is a Thor that is down to earth it is almost ungodly.
He gets involved in Mutant Massacre when his frog friends from an earlier adventure alert him to a pitched battle down in the sewers of New York. He sets off to see what he can do to help.
This is just one of many stories that spring out from this storyline and this is the one that has impressed on me the most. I admit I am a big fan of Simonson’s Thor and perhaps that shaped my preference and fondness for these chapters of the crossover. But Simonson has really done a good job and giving the Thunder God a human heart.
Simonson has done much to move the character beyond its initial need to learn humility within the frail shell of Donald Blake. He has already proven he learned his lesson when the enchantment was removed by Odin. But still he saw the need to be with the people he protects in Midgard by assuming a civilian identity. It was really moving when he gave a Viking funeral to the fallen Morlocks, assuring them of a better afterlife than the downtrodden ones they had in life. Thor has learned empathize with the people of MIdgard.
These two chapters really make this collected edition a meaningful read for me.
