The Mighty Thor #11

   It's a bit shocking to see Thor swiping a schtick from old Superman comics.

   In a bit of comedy during the ongoing chaos of conflict between three insanely powerful corporate executives (no kidding), two SHIELD agents decided to expose Thor's secret identity - Dr. Jane Foster.

   So imagine their surprise when Thor is wounded, and Jane shows up to save her!

   But since Thor really is Jane, how can that be? It's a trick worthy of Superman, who always found a way to fool Lois - and it makes about as much sense as those silly Silver Age stories.

   I won't give away the secret, of course, but it may be mighty hard for the reader to accept.

   The issue's an over-the-top, frantic collision of battles, dubious events and the most impractical rescue this month.

   But even if it's a bit on the silly side, I have to admit that I enjoyed the issue a lot!

   Go figure!

Grade: A-

Reminds me of the scene in either Superman III or VI where Superman and Clark Kent agree to double date Lois and a girlfriend of Kent's. Makes for a good laugh to see them pull it off.
