War of Realms first look

A massive Marvel event is here and this time it comes from lands of Thor.  I think the last major Thor event was Siege which felt a bit shoved into the end of Dark Reign.  This event by contrast has been set up by many a very long run of Thor comics by Jason Aaron.  Aaron hit on this fact when explaining War of Realms.

“I have been building towards War of the Realms for the entire duration of my Thor run. So we're talking six years and 80-something issues and counting,” said Aaron in a statement. “This is a war that covers the entire globe and involves the biggest heroes of the Marvel Universe, as you can see in this amazing promo piece by my Mighty Thor collaborators, Russell Dauterman and Matthew Wilson, who I'm so thrilled to be working with again on War of the Realms.”

Who is Malekith?



The War of the Realms is set to star the villain Malekith.  The Dark Elf is going to lead an army (The Wild Hunt) on a rampage across the 10 realms, in his path is Midgard also known as Earth.  Generally, Thor has battled Malekith in one or more of the fantasy realms but this time the action promises to take place on Earth and get the other Marvel Superheroes in on the action.  Malekith has been set up a as a major villain in Aaron's run going all the way back to when Jane first took the Hammer from Thor.  In that series, Thor then going by Odinson tried to fight Malekith without his hammer and was rewarded by Malekith cutting off his arm.  Since that time Thor has been using a metal arm forged by dwarves.

Thor and Malekith have a lot of problems with each other and the collision Thor fans have been waiting years for, is finally about to happen.

Thor Store:
If you want to get caught up for War of the Realms here are some Thor stories to look at.  Thor: The Goddess of Thunder Vol 1 will catch you up on how Jason's Aaron's Thor run effectively started and the initial battles with Thor and Malekith.  I am actually a bigger fan of Aaron's Thor: God of Thunder run which is a bit darker.  Either way there are some great Thor comics to check out and these are great reads over the holidays or as a Christmas gift.





Marvel Press Release:

Earth's Mightiest Show has an exclusive first look at the most momentous event ever to hit the Ten Realms!
In April 2019, the legendary team behind MIGHTY THOR reunites as writer Jason Aaron, artist Russell Dauterman, and colorist Matt Wilson present WAR OF THE REALMS.
Malekith the Dark Elf has been rampaging across the Realms for years, and now he's coming for Midgard. There, the Super Heroes of the Marvel Universe make their final stand, and a war begins.
So, why is Captain America riding a winged horse? Where does Jane Foster come into play? How does Wolverine get involved? Why does Daredevil have a sword...and why is he covered in starry lights? The Punisher, Luke Cage, Iron Fist; how do these street-level heroes join the fight? How do Venom, She-Hulk, Black Panther, Spider-Man, Captain Marvel, Iron Man, Doctor Strange, Ghost Rider, and so many more team-up for the war? And is that Blade!?
