Issue(s): Thor #145
With nothing better to do, Thor decides to join the circus (of course) and (of course) picks the Circus of Crime.
Adding injury to insult, Thor is hypnotized by the Ringmaster.
Quality Rating: C
Chronological Placement Considerations: This starts soon after the end of the previous issue. This issue ends with Thor hypnotized by the Ringmaster, and he therefore shouldn't appear anywhere else until the beginning of next issue.
Continuity Insert? N
My Reprint: Marvel Spectacular #16
Inbound References (1): showBrona, Bruto the Strongman, Clown, Ernesto Gambonno, Forsung, Human Cannonball, Luigi Gambonno, Magnir, Odin, Princess Python, Ringmaster, Sif, Thor
Reading through Thor in order again and, man, these last four or five issues have really felt like a regression from the amazing stuff Kirby & Lee were doing. The art is better but the stories almost feel as inconsequential as the earlier JIM stuff. I know it gets back on track and there's more amazing stuff to come but the 'wow' factor hasn't been as strong since the High Evolutionary or Ulik issues.

Odin's flip-out was so unhinged, I thought it would turn out that the Enchanter he'd fought had taken control of him. But nope, it's just Odin being a dick.

Odin's rant after defeating the Enchanters is just epic in it's lunacy.
I AM ODIN! GREATEST OF ALL TIME! ALL BOW BEFORE ME! TAKE THAT YOU LOSERS!
He's like the guy that gets way too excited after winning his beer league softball game.
