Marvel History Post 93: Journey into Mystery # 98

Issue: Journey into Mystery # 98
Writer: Stan Lee
Artist: Don Heck
Publication Date: November 1963

Brief Summary:

http://marvel.wikia.com/Journey_Into_Mystery_98

Commentary:

The tension between Odin and Thor continues. Thor is none too pleased that he is forbidden from making his love known to Jane Foster. Odin should know better than to stop a man from making a foolish declaration of love. That's one of man's favorite past times, likely dating back to the days when people were inventing the original stories of Thor. Thor's catharsis, of course, is beating on Cobra.


We also get another tale of the Asgard of old, with Odin battling Frost Giants.

Favorite Panel:

Well, at least Stan's aware that power exposition heavy dialog is a favorite from his play book.
