‘Thor’ #6 massively shifts the power Cosmic in the Marvel universe

In just one story arc Donny Cates and Nic Klein have changed Thor and the Marvel universe in a big way.

Spoilers ahead. You’ve been warned. For more, read our review.

Thor has been an exciting journey so far and today the sixth issue arrives in comic book shops. Donny Cates and Nic Klein have done so much in a few issues from making Thor a Herald of Galactus to revealing Galactus was a Herald himself to another god-like entity from another universe. This week, Cates and Klein top all that with a new massive shift in the Cosmic energies of the Marvel universe.

Listen to the latest episode of our weekly comics podcast!

In the sixth issue out today, Thor and Galactus must fight the Black Winter. Unfortunately for Galactus, Thor isn’t too happy to find out it’s his fault the Black Winter has entered our universe and may destroy everything.

Instead of striking down the Black Winter, Thor does a surprising thing. He attacks Galactus.

Galactus Thor #6

Thor, now a king, is striking down Galactus and it appears he’s doing so to pull all of his energy and take it as his own.

Seeing Galactus a shell of what he was without power is a striking image indeed. The Black Winter is happy with this, but wants to kill Galactus himself. Thor refuses this suggestion and literally turns Galactus into a bomb.

He does so to stop the Black Winter dead in his tracks.

What is left appears to be Galactus’ armor and now a Thor without any Cosmic powers. It’s a striking move, one made by a hero who certainly deserves to be a king as it wasn’t an easy choice.

This is only a fraction of the story though and I highly recommend you read the entire issue. The opening alone and how it connects to another Donny Cates book is worth the price of admission.
