You know that THOR can't fly, right?  That's to say, can't fly
in the way that SUPERMAN can.  Goldilocks has to whirl his magic
mallet, throw it in the direction he wants to go, and hang on to the thong
so that he's pulled along after his uru hammer " the tail of a rocket!"
Yet in the tale in this ish, Thor and his doppelganger hurl their hammers
at one another while in mid-air - without either one plummeting like
a stone, the way they should if logic held sway.

Just thought I'd point that out.  Great cover 'though.

I think it was addressed in the letters page once, although Thor can't fly without the aid of his hammer, he can hover but only if he's eaten baked beans or chilli the night before. Of course this means he has to avoid naked flames or sparks, when he's utilising this mode of flight.

Maybe it's like Wile E. Coyote when he runs off of a cliff. He's OK until he looks down and realizes there's nothing under him, and then he falls.

Of course, DSE - silly me. Now I remember.


H'mm, that'a also a likely explanation, TC. Which do I choose? Decisions, decisions.

Why are there three hammers, when there's only two Thors?

Kid said...

Because Professor Zaxton, who used his duplicating machine to create another Thor, then duplicated the duplicate's hammer in order to give him two, and thus an advantage over the real Thor.
