Warren Ellis doing what he could to elevate the sheer horror that was 90's mainstream comics. I love Deodato Jr's art now (see his stuff with Ellis in Thunderbolts - A+), but this is a mess of blonde hair and muscles.

Stan Lee., Mike Deodato (Illustrator). Jack Kirby (Illustrator). Warren Ellis doing what he could to elevate the sheer horror that was 90's mainstream comics. It's only 4 issues, not a lot happens, and the layout is surprisingly confusing. You can see Ellis's writing coming through, and there's a couple of bits I'm surprised made it past the Comics Code, but otherwise, it's kind of a weird mess. I love Deodato Jr's art now (see his stuff with Ellis in Thunderbolts - A+), but this is a mess of blonde hair and muscles

Thor: Tales of Asgard by Stan Lee and Jack Kirby In Worldengine, a powerless Thor has to stop a mad scientist from bringing about Ragnarok through a machine known as the Worldengine.

Thor: Tales of Asgard by Stan Lee and Jack Kirby. This is a great anthology for those new to Thor, or those that want to get a look at how Thor was originally. It collects the original back up stories from Journey into Mystery. This book covers Thor before he is banished to Earth, so we’re dealing with a more arrogant, reckless, and rash God of Thunder. This is the story of the Thor you may not really like, since he’s kind of an idiot at this point. In Worldengine, a powerless Thor has to stop a mad scientist from bringing about Ragnarok through a machine known as the Worldengine. It’s a great story that’s a little different from what you may be used to with Thor.

He is a resident of Southend-on-Sea, England. Titles published by various British publishers include: Deadline "United We Fall" (with Nigel Dobbyn, Deadline Publications, 1990).

Thor and Beta Ray Bill have taken ill! Yggdrassil, the World Tree, has been grafted with an engine to hasten its destruction and bring about Ragnarok and the end of the world! What mysterious villain is behind it all, and can Thor figure it out in time to save all of existence? And when the Go. .

A very different tale of Thor which I thought was refreshing.
In the mid to late nineties the Avengers had it really rough; the flagship Avengers book was full of second stringers and selling badly, Iron Man had some good stories before (such as the creation of War Machine) Captain America was in the throes of mediocrity (soon to be reenergized by Mark Waid & Ron Garney's run) but over all things were not looking good for the franchise.
And then there was Thor.
Warren Ellis was an up and coming talent in the industry and Thor was in such a bad state that the powers that be at Marvel decided to give the guy a shot at the series; and Worldengine was the result. Besides the usual grit and grim characters that ruled the nineties, Ellis's take on Thor was a more mythological oriented take on the character and Mike Deodato's pencils were quite good for the time, although the coloring leaves something to be desired and this is understandable too, since the lower selling Marvel titles didn't get the higher level computer coloring and better quality paper than the X Men series was getting.
Basically the story goes like this; Yggdrasil (the world tree that rules the fate of Asgard) is somehow being affected by a mysterious machine called Worldengine, and this is somehow hastening the coming of Ragnarok (the predestined End of Things in Asgardian Mythology) and it's up to a depowered Thor to find out what is happening and to try to stop it, and in during the story he hooks up with the Enchantress.
Oh and did I mentioned that besides being depowered Thor has a new costume to booth?
This is not a bad story at all, and it gives much needed depth to some mythic elements that appear in the upcoming Thor movie, but I could think of several Thor stories that deserve a Marvel Premiere edition more, like Dan Jurgen & John Romita's magnificent Thanos "Chalice of Ruins" tale.
This short 4 issue story was originally printed in 1995 but since then both Thor and Warren Ellis have become a lot more popular so even if the story is quite poor and stuck in that overly-campy way of telling superhero stories some comic series were stuck in back in the 90s, it'll probably sell a few copies just by association.

It's actually quite a poor quality story both in terms of writing and drawing. I can't fault the artist but Thor comes across like he stepped off of the front cover of a Mills & Boon book and Enchantress looks like a wet dream. Ellis' writing is only recognisable in the character of the obnoxious detective who's voice sounds a lot like a future famous Ellis character, Spider Jerusalem.

And what is the story? A garbled mess involving the tree of life under threat by some kind of robot zombies and a mad priest, and Thor somehow dying one minute and not the next. I wanted to like this book as I'm a fan of Thor and think that Warren Ellis might be my favourite comics writer, but this is definitely missable. Boring, incoherent, and dated, "Worldengine" is for completists only.
As a previous reviewer stated, in the mid-90s, Thor had it a bit rough in terms of creative teams and storyarcs. With Worldengine, writer Warren Ellis (the then up and coming creator of Transmetropolitan, as well as writer of countless other beloved titles) attempted to restore some of the classic mythological aspects of the Thor mythos to the title while keeping things somewhat grounded in the traditional superhero slug-fest world. A depowered Thor seeks to stop the machine known as the Worldengine from bringing about Ragnarok, which is naturally easier said than done. Oh yeah, Thor also finds himself in bed with his one-time arch villianess The Enchantress. For what it's worth, Ellis' story is popping with ideas and a mixture of old and new concepts, but it feels like he just wasn't given the proper room to really let the story tell itself. The artwork from Mike Deodato is wonderful though, and his renderings of Enchantress are, well, enchanting to say the least. All in all, you'll find better Thor stories (and Ellis-penned tales for that matter) than Worldengine, but at the same time, you could do much, much worse as well.
I don't know why this story is getting so much hate....I liked it.
