Thor #310 (1981)

Thor versus Mephisto?  This should be a good, extended arc with all kinds of implications!

Or not.

It’s a done-in-one about Mephisto literally serving as the devil on New Yorkers’ shoulders, telling them to steal stuff and commit other types of crimes.  Thor keeps stopping the crimes, so M brings Thor down to Hell, where Thor hits him in the face with Mjolnir.

(Great idea+middling execution) x Jim Shooter’s edict that stories should be done in one issue=Lost Opportunity.
