Has Thor abandoned The Avengers to team up with Snow Miser???
How could the God of Thunder leave the greatest team of Superheroes ever created to work with such a putz?
WBRR TV Meteorologist Stormy McBlizzardton told this Modern Philosopher, “I don’t believe that Thor would actually leave The Avengers to team up with a Super Villain. He might do it to work on his own, or maybe to hook up with a new batch of Superheroes, but no way he does it for the likes of Snow Miser.”
While I had hoped McBlizzardton would give me an opinion from a meteorological perspective, he clearly could not shake his Inner Fan Boy on this one.
Captain America, a fellow Avenger, had this to offer: “I know Thor well, and we’re very competitive. I bet he’s doing this whole Winter Storm gig in an attempt to prove to me that he’s the real Winter Soldier.”
Whatever his reasons, Thor has certainly caused quite a buzz in the comic book and motion picture worlds. Hollywood execs spent the day wondering if Thor’s career change, be it temporary or permanent, would affect the upcoming release of the next Avengers movie.
The Avengers: Age of Ultron is scheduled to hit theaters on May 1.
“I bet this is all a publicity stunt by Marvel to get people excited about the new Avengers flick,” a studio honcho, who asked to remain anonymous, told this Modern Philosopher. “Thor’s name is all over the news, The Weather Channel, the radio, and social media. Even if it is just about a blizzard, when people hear the name Thor, they think about The Avengers and the Superhero with the hammer and the flowing blonde locks.”
Marvel declined to comment for this post. They did, however, send me two free passes to the Hollywood premiere of The Avengers: Age of Ultron, and promised me even more Marvel goodies if this post got a large amounts of hits.
So please share this post, Modern Philosophers. I’d love some Marvel freebies!
I have not been able to speak to Thor yet, but he is expected to arrive in Maine at around 8:00pm. I intend to wait out the storm at The House on the Hill, and will attempt to interview Thor at some point.
Hopefully, he is not accompanied by my arch nemesis, Snow Miser.
In the meantime, Avengers fans, I advise you not to panic. There is no indication that Thor is abandoning The Avengers, and forming a power duo with Snow Miser.
Every Superhero has a point in his career where he goes off, rethinks his life, and maybe even turns to the dark side for a time. Something tells me that Thor is just reacting to this long, arduous Winter in his own way.
If we get lucky, maybe Snow Miser will piss him off, and Thor will use his hammer to do what every New Englander has longed to do to Snow Miser all Winter…
