This afternoon during Marvel’s Next Big Thing panel at Chicago’s C2E2, Jason Aaron appeared, wreathed in lightning, to herald the next major story line in Thor: God of Thunder.
“The Accursed” sees the return of long-incarcerated Malekith, former lord of the Dark Elves. But Svartalfheim has changed since their wicked taskmaster disappeared, banished to an extra-dimensional prison. Are they so willing to accept Malekith and join him on a worlds-wide revenge spree? It’s a hunt that takes Thor, Sif, the Warriors Three and a host of new comrades through many of the Nine Realms. It also comes just in time for Thor: The Dark World‘s theatrical debut and its theatrical introduction to Malekith (Christopher Eccleston) and his loathsome armies.
It all starts in September with Thor: God of Thunder #13. ( x )
