Issue(s): Thor #129, Thor #130
A minute later he's totally forgotten about Tana and after a discussion with Jane, Thor leaves for Asgard to renounce his immortality so he can marry her. LEAVING JANE ALONE IN THE APARTMENT WITH THE WEIRD LADY HE WAS FORCED TO BOW TO! And they say Hercules is the dumb one. Tana Nile proceeds send Jane away in order to prevent Thor from interfering with her plans.
Thor returns to Asgard to find that he'd forgotten to check his palm pilot, because today just happens to be the Day of Three Worlds, during which Thor is supposed to fulfill a prophecy.
Luckily the prophecy predicts that he will help tie up another plot thread, which means he gets to help Hercules get out of his contract with Pluto. He does so by kicking the crap out of everyone in Hades.
It's a bit overwhelming that both the Greek and Norse pantheons exist in the Marvel universe. It would have been interesting if only the Norse myths were true. As it is, this book is doing its best to introduce us to a whole second cast. We meet Hercules' half-brother Ares this arc.
Overall, good stuff in a crazy sort of way.

May need to increase the importance rank due to Ares, since he was an Avenger for a bit.
