Thor and Absorbing Man resume their battle from last issue. Thor gains the upper hand. Loki, fearful of Creel’s defeat, transports him to Asgard. Meanwhile, Thor rescues Jane Foster from a locked room filling with smoke. He transforms into Doctor Blake, but the transformation is witnessed by reporter Harris Hobbs who engineered the smoke-filled room scenario for the purpose of discovering Thor’s secret. Hobbs says he will destroy his evidence of Thor’s dual-identity if Thor will take him to Asgard. Meanwhile, in Asgard, Creel confronts Odin who blasts him with cosmic energy, which he absorbs!
