Issue(s): Thor #309
It's dumb because the people hired to destroy the buildings have equipment far more valuable than whatever they're getting paid by the landlord.
Particularly egregious is the use of adamantium, which repeatedly gets destroyed.
Accompanying Thor on this mission is a cat whose owner was killed in the attack on the initial building.
Also in this story is Blackbyrd, a character from Bill Mantlo's White Tiger stories. He was a private detective, but he's now back on the force.
I was amused by this exchange, where the guy in the tenement can't "dig" Thor's "lingo".
Quality Rating: C-
Chronological Placement Considerations: Pushed back slightly in publication time to allow Avengers annual #10 to take place between Thor #310-311.
Continuity Insert? N
My Reprint: N/A
Inbound References (1): showNathaniel 'Blackbyrd' Byrd, Thor
It would've been cool if the cat came back.

Why do I suddenly imagine that cat as the steed for Frog-Thor?

Mantlo's plot for this story is very similar to "The Bulleteeers," one of the classic 1940s Superman shorts by Fleischer Studios.
