THOR is dead!

For most of the non-geeks out there, you probably have known Thor only through his movie this year. Many of you might have even fallen in love with him (that includes you guys - the flowing golden hair is simply irresistable). Now I have bad news for you, Thor is dead and someone else has taken the mantle of the God of Thunder.

The fall of Thor happens in the Marvel Comics event, Fear Itself #6. Where we see him carried away by his superhero comrades.

We first see Thor's replacement in this Battle Scars preview: (the guy on the upper left most corner)

Now meet the new God of Thunder: Tanarus!

*psst *psst I'll tell you a secret that comic geeks already know, Thor won't be dead very long. Death in comics is just like taking a sleep, sooner or later this character will be up and running again. (And you have to consider that Thor will be appearing in the Avengers next year).
