Marvel Comics has just shared a first look at The Immortal Thor #5, an issue written by Al Ewing with art from Martín Cóccolo. The legendary Alex Ross, meanwhile, has dreamed up a stunning cover for the issue which promises to introduce us to the all-new Thor Corps. 

In the issue, Toranos has returned - and to face him, the King of Asgard has gathered his army. But if even an army of storm gods could not stop the Elder God of Thunder...what then? This is the story of the Immortal Thor and the battle that will define him.

On writing another Immortal story, Ewing said, "I had it in my head for a while that I wanted to do a second Immortal title because I wanted another swing at something that was that big and meaningful."

"I was also looking to do something a bit more optimistic," he continued. "Hulk is a very horror-based character, and I was writing a lot of heavy emotional stuff in there. I think Thor, in his nature, is a high fantasy character, so you sort of write that from a position of hope. That’s nice - it’s nice to have a little hope!"

As for this big Thor Corps reveal, Ewing teases, "Well, let’s talk about that cover. It’s basically everyone - well, not everybody because Eric Masterson is sadly no longer with us - but, a whole bunch of people who have previously been Thor are Thor again...to back up Thor. The main Thor!"

It's an incredible piece of artwork and a formidable team but we're intrigued by Ewing's mention of Eric. Could that be a hint he'll finally return from the dead in this issue? We don't want to get our hopes up, but a series titled The Immortal Thor would arguably be the place to make it happen! 

Ewing has become a big name in Marvel Comics and after redefining the Hulk, his approach to the God of Thunder has so far been a blast.
