The Unworthy Thor #1 sees a return to the spotlight for the Odinson, and judging by this preview it's going to be a pretty action-packed comeback.

The preview pages are unlettered, but it's not clear if there would need to be any word balloons on these pages anyway. Maybe just a caption at the beginning to tell readers what planet this is, where Odinson, the once and future Thor, is fighting a whole horde of alien warriors.

Whatever planet this is, it's also the current resting place of the hammer of the Thor of the Ultimate universe, since that Thor and that universe died in Secret Wars. If he manages to get his hand on that hammer and fight off all the aliens with his new/restored Thor powers, that's going to be pretty fun.

The Unworthy Thor #1 is written by Jason Aaron with art by Olivier Coipel. It goes on sale November 2, 2016.

Perhaps this relic of a dead universe holds the key to the Odinson’s return to glory. Yet he is not the only one who would seek such a prize. Some of the greatest villains in the Marvel Universe are anxious to get their hands on it as well. Can the Odinson regain his honor or will the power of the thunder be wielded for evil? The explosive quest for the hammer begins here when THE UNWORTHY THOR #1 crashes into comic shops on November 2nd!
