Kotaku Off Topic: The Mighty Thor

Illustration for article titled Kotaku Off Topic: The Mighty Thor

What is this, io9? What's with all the super heroes? Well, it's just the kind of thing we like to chat about during our special Kotaku Off Topic posts, where pretty much anything goes—like, discussing The Mighty Thor.


Marvel released the first shot of Thor in the upcoming Kenneth Branagh-directed film and I'm liking what I see. Not that I'm the world's biggest Thor fan, as I read, primarily, Walter and Louise Simonson's run on the Marvel comic way back when. And that was pretty much it. I'd enjoyed The Ultimates version of Thor quite a bit, but I'm excited to have no expectations to shatter. Seems to be better that way.

Perhaps the Avengers aspect that I'm most excited about its Edgar Wright's take on Ant-man.

Here's more superhero stuff for you to absorb. Please use your mutant powers of off topic conversation to keep this weekend chitchat humming along. Adios amigos!


Walking Eye

What useless super power would you have? Nothing that could actually be used to fight crime.

I'd be Iron Man. A hero with the power to make your clothes no longer wrinkled.
