Thor has answered the Avengers' call to action from day one, but the god of thunder has an even higher responsibility: to his worshippers. The Thunderer responds to entreaties from a dicatorship's denizens in a part of the world bad enough to have Doctor Doom for a neighbor! But not everyone's in favor of divine intervention, and it's Secretary of Defense Iron Man's job to get the god out - leaving Captain America to play referee between two of the world's biggest super-powers! Do the Avengers have a prayer of weathering this storm? Featuring She-Hulk, the Falcon, the Enchantress, the Warriors Three and more!

Written by DAN JURGENS, MARLAN HARRIS, GEOFF JOHNS and MIKE GRELL. Art by TOM RANEY, JOE BENNETT, ALAN DAVIS and KIA ASAMIYA. Cover by TOM RANEY. Once upon a time, Asgard was ruled by Odin - whose might, wisdom and power were exalted throughout the cosmos. Those he led hoped his flame might burn forever, but that fire was extinguished when Odin died at Surtur's hands. Odin's power and throne were ceded to his son: Thor, God of Thunder. For years, Thor had lived on Earth as protector, champion and Avenger - endearing himself to the entire world. Having lived a mortal's life, Earth's well-being was of paramount importance to the Thunder God. But his ascension to the throne has interfered with that mission. Asgard's interests have forced him to ignore Earth. So using a power only the greatest of gods might possess, Asgard's liege has transported Asgard to Earth, where it now floats majestically above New York City. There does the conflict begin! Softcover, 240 pages, full color.
