We all know the iconic splash page starring Kitty Pryde that says “Professor Xavier is a JERK!” but did you know Thor went one farther than that? This issue starts with him throwing a tantrum and beating the crap out of one of Don Blake’s filing cabinets. It’s all because Odin won’t let him date Jane Foster. “Odin is a JERK!”
In #98, Thor fights Cobra, a green-clad dude with hyperagility who was bitten by a radioactive cobra. Then, in #99-100, we meet Mister Hyde for the first time. It’s the first two-part Thor story.
I grouped these together because, very soon, Cobra and Hyde will team up in JiM #110.
Creators: Stan Lee and Don Heck
First appearances: Cobra (#98), Mister Hyde (#99)
