Characters Appearing: Adam Warlock, Dr. Strange, Drax the Destroyer, Maxam, Moondragon, Pip the Troll, Silver Surfer, Thanos, Thor
Silver Surfer #88
Issue(s): Silver Surfer #88
The Surfer is able to knock out the Valkyrie, and Thanos stops Thor with a special gun.
After Thor is subdued, the Infinity Watch and Dr. Strange, having recovered from their battle with Thor last chapter, show up. Thanos says they have to hurry up and cure Thor before he wakes up again.
I like Thanos, so seeing him fight Thor is enjoyable and Ron Marz handles him well enough. The trick to enjoying this crossover, and granted this is difficult, it to be zen about the amount of space used. The outline of this entire story would probably sound good to any Marvel fan; it's the length that is the problem. I paid for these issues years ago so there's no point in feeling ripped off about how padded they are now. And in any event even though this issue is just a straight fight all the way through, it feels less padded than most.
