The God of Thunder will have an updated look when writer Donny Cates and artist Nic Klein launch a new Thor ongoing series.
Marvel Comics released new character designs by Klein for the relaunch during its Next Big Thing Panel Friday at New York Comic-Con. The designs give Thor a new look as he takes on the role of King of Asgard.
Thor now dons a black body armor with matching boots, with the center armor covered in bright stars. A Thuriasz rune forms a glowing white symbol on his sash. As Thor's cape, the inside starts with a gradient red at the bottom that turns into purple as you make your way to the top. The King of Asgard also appears to have a black item across his forehead.
The new Thor #1 follows the events of War of the Realms, with Odin naming his son the new King of Asgard. Even though the Ten Realms have now found peace, a new threat called "The Black Winter" threatens to shatter this new era for the Realm Eternal.
The cover by Olivier Coipel and solicitation for Donny Cates and Nic Klein's Thor #1 can be found below.
