REFLECTIVE REPOST: WHOSOEVER HOLDS THIS HAMMER...
Above is the original final caption box of THOR'S origin from
JIM #83 before it was changed to how it saw print, below. (With
Thor missspelt as THORR.) Interesting to see that perhaps Thor was
intended as a try-out character to test reader reaction before launching
him in a series. I say "perhaps" because this may merely have been a
gimmick to make readers think they had a say in what was published.
I'd imagine that it's more than likely the next few episodes were
already lying in a drawer in STAN LEE's office.
Below is the original and my re-lettered version, side-by-side.
