Marvel History 133: Journey into Mystery # 103

Issue: Journey into Mystery # 103
Writer: Stan Lee
Artist: Jack Kirby
Publication Date: April 1964

Stan creates a bit of intrigue in the romance department when the Enchantress wanders down the Rainbow Bridge in an attempt to steal Thor's heart.  Nurse Jane Foster walks in at the wrong time, and it's like an episode of Melrose Place all of a sudden (and yes, I realize Melrose Place hasn't been a topical reference for the last ten years or so).  

Also, Odin plans to confront Thor next issue in regards to his love of Jane, as his latest plan to forcibly put an end to his son's feelings blows up in his face.  I'm actually intrigued to see how this one turns out.  

The backup tale tells the story of Thor's involvement of the creation of man, who were made in the image of the Norse Gods.  

Favorite Panel:

Stan and Jack amp up the sex appeal.
