Immortal Thor #2: The Gruesome Sacrifice
Marvel’s new comics this week bring us Immortal Thor #2, which unveils a shocking revelation about Thor’s father, Odin. The issue follows Thor’s ongoing battle with the formidable Utgard-Thor, Toranos. However, it is during a flashback sequence that we witness the extent to which Odin is willing to go for power.
The Tree of Life and Death
In this action-packed installment, Odin stands before the majestic Yggdrasil, the Tree of Life and Death, seeking its wisdom. To gain its knowledge, Odin makes a gruesome sacrifice – he gouges out his own eye with a blade and offers it to the tree. The Tree of Life and Death accepts this sacrifice, granting Odin his desired power.
A Warning of Consequences
As Odin completes his transformation, the Tree warns him that all power comes at a price. It foretells a future where his children will also bear the consequences of his actions. This haunting message serves as a chilling reminder of the dangers associated with the pursuit of power.
