After reading "Avengers Disassembled," I figured I should read all the other "Disassembled" titles before moving on. Turns out this one could have been skipped.

That's not to say it isn't a great story though! It basically explains where Thor is during the main storyline, which is to say he was battling Loki with the help of Beta Ray Bill in Asgard. But by the time it got to the end, I was still wondering where the "Disassembled" involvement was. The Iron Man collection was a great tie-in, but this one didn't really add anything.

But if you want to read a great Thor storyline (especially if you only know him from the movies), this is a great read!

And so, the saga of The Mighty Thor come to a close. At least, the Asgardian universe created by Stan Lee and Jack Kirby way back in the 1960s has been obliterated, seemingly for once and for all, as Thor himself brings about the one, true Ragnarok, twilight of the gods, super-armageddon.

Writer Michael Avon Oeming cleverly deals with the fact that Marvel's Thor has dealt with multiple Ragnaroks over the years, explaining to readers that Thor and his compatriots (spoiler alert) have been caught in a vast cosmic joke for countless millennia, and that the Ragnarok story isn't the world-ending finale we'd all been lead to believe, but rather a sideshow staged of the amusement of some uber-gods who toy with the Asgadians for reasons of their own. Thus, a newly-cosmic, ever-heroic Thor brings an end to their torture by making Ragnarok real -- and allowing every godly friend he has -- Sif, Balder, Hogun, Volstagg, et. al. -- to die, for reals and forever. Also, one by one, fall his greatest mythical enemies: Ulik, Loki, Surtur and all the classic baddies of years gone by. It's a big event, and a reasonably engrossing story... Thor himself (spoiler alert) appears to have survived the destruction of his reality, but has put himself in suspended animation, somewhere out there in the mega-universe, so we will doubtless see him resurrected at some point. But the official word from Marvel is that this is the for-real end of the old Asgardian paradigm. An interesting way to close out a title that has gone through long, long periods of stagnation. Rest in peace, Norse pantheon. (Joe Sixpack, ReadThatAgain book reviews)

I know this story came out years ago but for some reason I could never find it anywhere so I just now got around to reading it and I was not disappointed. This story is pretty epic and great step forward for Thor as a character. It is the end of the Aesir and also the end of who Thor used to be. Through the hard choices he makes and the loss he suffers throughout the story, you see some serious development in this longtime Avengers mainstay. Reading this will also make you appreciate the new run on the series more as you get the skinny on why Thor is rocking the Thousand yard stare and seems overall more zen and mature. The only complaint you could make is that you might want a little more from the story but really just because it's so good and brings up lots of interesting plot points that would be great if given more development. As it is though this is a great read supported by some pretty decent artwork.
PS: The new Nightmare on Elm Street is pretty damn boring 20 minutes into it.

the writing and art were excellent. Michael went deep into his Norse Mythology crate to craft a fitting story for Ragnarok. I felt a tinge of sadness when it came to an end. Bold storytelling at its finest

The Avengers are falling one by one after the Scarlet Witch attack. Now it's Thor's turn to face Ragnarok again and this time it looks like it's all over! I love that they brought Beta Ray Bill back and the brotherly relationship between both, he and Thor is apparent and you can feel Bill's frustration after Thor removes him from the battlefield at the end.
A great story and a great ending for the Thor books, albeit a short one.

Needed it to complete the disassembled story arch. Totally worth the buy. Art is great and it is the beginning of the biggest events in Marel history.

I was quite stunned by this book. The art was wonderful, the story was powerful, and it was generally well done. It is definately one of my favorite comic arcs in a LONG time.

The book arrived damaged. The book was clearly dropped damaging the corners of all the pages. The book also contained other damage to pages.

After finishing Avengers: Disassembled and Civil War I was like what the hell happened to Thor and was quite perplexed by his absence in such huge events. Well this explains all that and more. A lot occurs in these pages and the story and art are top notch. Highly recommend
