Earlier within the year, Marvel gave the incredible revelation that the hammer belonging to the Ultimate version of Thor had made its way into the 616 universe and an image of an unknown character in Thor garb wielding it.
Well, the wielder has been officially identified in Mighty Thor #20 as no other than Volstagg, a member of Thor’s supporting team Warriors Three (which was also comprised of Fandral and Hogun)
Apparently, during a peacekeeping mission in Nidavellir (the home of the dwarves) Volstagg fails to prevent the several deaths of Light Elf children as they are engulfed in the flames of Muspelheim. Volstagg, after realizing what has occurred, becomes rage-driven and blood-lusted which (somehow) gives him the worthiness to wield the Ultimate Hammer and transform into the WAR THOR!
What do you think about this information? Do you think War Thor is a good concept? Let us know in the comments below!
