Issue(s): Thor #246, Thor #247
Maybe it's because he's trying too hard to put them in a funny situation?
Anyway, Thor hears that Firelord has teamed up with some Latin American revolutionaries in Costa Verde who are trying to overthrow a Democratic government, and he decides to stop him. He brings Jane with him, but not the Warriors Three. It turns out that Firelord was hypnotized.
After a battle with Firelord...
...Thor gets hypnotized as well.
Continuing to set up the idea that Sif's spirit lives on in Jane (i assume), Len Wein has Jane rip her shirt to expose her belly when they get in the jungle.
Later she shows that she's handy (and extremely accurate!) with a machine gun (maybe angry because the guard calls her a "muchacho")...
...and then takes out the witch that hypnotized Thor and Firelord in a knife fight.
Meanwhile, Balder is concerned because Odin is acting insane and eventually gets put on trial...
...and has to flee. I feel like every 6 issues Odin is either going on an extended sleep, has amnesia, or is going crazy (this time he's been replaced with Mangog). Not exactly a stable monarchy in Asgard.
Quality Rating: C-
Chronological Placement Considerations: The MCP places Thor's appearances from issue #240-255 between his appearances in Avengers #151 & #159. A blurb says that the Warriors Three next appear in Marvel Spotlight #28. It'll really be issue #30, but that is their next appearance.
Continuity Insert? N
