What You Need to Know: Jane has been obviously neglecting her Cancer Treatments and that means every time she becomes Thor, she gets worse and worse. Odison went to her and convinced her to lay down her hammer for a moment saying that the world needs both Thor AND Jane. She decides to visit the All-Father to take up arms in the War of Realms before it reaches Asgardia. But it’s too late, for the Mangog has reached Asgardia with vengeance and Jane has collapsed in her sickly human form.
In This Issue: A few days ago, Jane Foster and her friend, the new Senator of Midgard, Roz Solomon were enjoying a nice night of flying through New York in Roz’s car. Enjoying Pizza and discussing obvious current events. Most importantly, Jane’s Cancer. Elsewhere, Sam Wilson (now back to being Falcon) calls Jane hoping that she is OK. In a garbage bin, Dr. Steven Strange, now Doctor Strange Veterinarian and no longer Sorcerer Supreme, fights a creature while also vocally worrying about Jane.
Waking up to now in a hospital bed, Jane is surrounded by Odison, Roz, Sam and Strange all worried that she has now officially pushed her limit. They try to convince her that Asgardia will be ok without her for now. But little do they know, that Mangog has arrived and is battling Hemidal on the Rainbow Bridge. But Mangog is too much for Hemidal and Lord Crul orders the bridge and the Bifrost destroyed to stop him before he can cause more damage. Obviously, such little things can’t stop the Mangog and his rampage begins.
After Doctor Strange examines Jane, the prognosis is worse than anyone can imagine. If Jane transforms into Thor one more time, she won’t survive the transformation back to Jane Foster and die. The news couldn’t come at a worse time as Mjolnir appears at the window, calling Jane to fight the Mangog.
Realizing she has no choice the All-Mother, Lady Freya who has awoken from her coma decides to take matters into her own hands. Using the Destroyer as her weapon of choice. But it is useless as Mangog rips through her while the All-Father sits on his throne realizing he is next.
After much convincing, Jane makes the hardest choice of her life and gets back into bed to recover. But only under the condition that her friends fight for her in the War since she cannot. Sending Odison off to fight alongside his Father.
After hours at the hospital, a man comes in wearing a Cowboy hat to cover his face and tells the Nurse to give a bouquet of flowers to Jane Foster. But he walks away as the Nurse notices there is no card, so how is Jane to know who the flowers are for?
