Comic Book Cover Swipes Exposed #56 Thor

Filed under: Swiped: Comic Book Cover Swipes Exposed! — Doorman @ 1:48 pm

After looking at hundreds of comic book covers, it becomes quickly apparent that not every cover is 100% original. Whether done intentionally or even underhandedly, there’s something about uncovering these “swipes” that adds a new element of fun to reading and collecting comics.

The Destroyer is a powerful weapon forged by Odin, himself. Throughout the past 45 years of Thor stories, it’s been imbued with the life-force of Thor, Sif, Loki, Balder, Thorgirl (Tarene) and more. To celebrate Roy Thomas’ big battle between the Destroyer and Thor (in his ‘new armor’), cover artist M.C. Wyman paid homage to the Destroyer’s first appearance.
