Once again Loki rears his mischievous head in Journey Into Mystery #92 to cause Thor yet more headaches. While Thor is helping to shoot a movie, Loki, peering on him from his chained position in Asgard, devises a way to magnetize his uru chains to attract Mjolnir back to Asgard and free him from his chains. Loki then lures Thor back to Asgard to finish him off once and for all.
Honestly, I’m not sure what to make out of this issue. There’s nothing horribly bad about it, but man is this issue goofy as heck. It opens with Thor strapping three thieves to a gurney and then launching it to the police station. Next up, Thor decides to assist in the filming of a Viking movie. Finally, no Mjolnir? No problem, just make a wooden or stone hammer. Also, isn’t Odin the all-seeing Father? Wouldn’t he be able to see where Mjolnir is?
In the end whether or not you’ll like Journey Into Mystery #92 depends on whether or not you like your Thor serious or kind of lighthearted.
