Volume two is a pretty quick read, having only three issues in it. That being said, it was still interesting and finally revealed who the new Thor is. So it is worth reading. You don’t need to have read Thor: God of Thunder for this to make sense, but reading volume one of Goddess of Thunder is highly recommended.
First things first, Odin is a big old butthead in this volume. It had to be said. He goes after the new Thor with a fury one rarely sees in him, and it’s clear that everyone, including Frejya thinks he has crossed the line.
Thor continues working through his list of likely suspects for (the new) Thor (the list itself still has me laughing), and more or less manages to get all the women (minus a couple) in one place at the same time. This results in an army of badass Marvel women verses the Destroyer. I would have loved for this fight to be more drawn out, as well as the interactions between everyone else (the sassy banter during the fight is priceless). While funny and kind of amazing, it also rules out most everyone on the list Thor has created (or you know, so he thinks). Needless to say ruling out everyone on his list has left Thor utterly and completely stumped. I imagine that’s something he’s used to!
The identity of Thor is finally revealed, with a bit of her backstory and reasoning being sprinkled throughout the volume; it pretty much explains why she’s doing everything, despite the costs (which are also made abundantly clear). The reveal itself is fantastic, so I’m going to save it for the readers to find out on their own, it’s worth it.
