THOR #330-331 (1983)

The bad news: These are some bad issues.  A priest is mystically transformed (by a bunch of Christian heads) into a powered being called Crusader after he accuses some Thor worshippers of blasphemy.

He fights Thor, wins because Thor loses faith in himself, then Thor goes back to Asgard with Sif and returns as the egomaniac we know and love and curbstomps Crusader.

Also, the mayor of Chicago makes an appearance.

At first I thought “Mayor Byrne” was a tribute to John Byrne.

But she’s real.

Creators: Alan Zelenetz and Bob Hall
