NEW GODS for old, seemed to be writer/artist JACK
KIRBY's philosophy when he came up with this idea.  It's not
unlikely that he realized the constant threats of  RAGNAROK in
THOR would eventually become old hat to readers, so he planned
to reveal what would happen after it finally, inevitably, occurred.  It
could so easily have been a MARVEL comicbook instead of a DC
one, and doubtless would have been if events hadn't precipitated
Jack's defection to the opposition.  But this was a drama decreed
by the fates to be acted out!  Nothing could stop it!  Nothing
could change it !  We watched and we saw!

It lasted for 11 issues before facing a Ragnarok of its
own, 'though echoes of its concepts still reverberate
throughout the DC Universe to this day.
