Thor #209 (1973)

After a complex, intertwined story that lasted over a year, we get a palette cleanser.  Thor strikes his hammer on the ground to change into his Don Blake body, and the energy from the strike awakens an old enemy of Odin, long buried, who then uses Stonehenge as the mystical center to return him to his home planet.

From my research, I see that this alien later appears in the eXcalibur series, an X-Men spin off, and is named Ultimus.  I stopped reading comics in the 1990s, so I’m not surprised I don’t know about it.

I don’t think I’ll be continuing this Web site into the 1990s either because I really don’t like that era, and because I don’t have a lot of those comics.
