Journey Into Mystery #104 (1964)

Loki convinces Odin to go the Earth to mess with Thor.  Odin’s mad at Thor for being in love with mortal Jane Foster.

It’s the first time Odin goes to Midgard.

Creators: Stan Lee, Jack Kirby, and inker Chic Stone.  I don’t usually mention inkers here, even though they have a lot of influence over the final “look” of a book, but I think Stone is the best Kirby inker out there.

First appearance: Balder the Brave

Grade: B-
