Secret Wars 3

One is amazing, and the other could be Marvel's most powerful

I really love the parts about  two heroes in particular this issue.

First, the power of Thor. There's a storm raging in Battleworld. A storm mightier than any on Earth. The storm is so strong, that the Human Torch tells The Thing - who has mysteriously turned into Ben Grimm - that if he were still the Thing, that he wouldn't be able to survive the fury of the storm. To be sure, all the heroes are in the shelter of the base. All save one. Thor is outside. In the storm. To make things worst, the impossibly strong winds tear a mountain size chunk of rock and hurls it at the base. Thor sees this, throws Mjolnir and shatters the falling mountain. Then we are given a close-up of his face; he's laughing. Enjoying himself. This is a great testament to the power of Thor, who is in the running with the Hulk for the rank of Marvels number one powerhouse.

Also in this issue is Marvel's trademark character. The masked face synonymous with Marvel - Spider-Man. Spidey gets into a "misunderstanding" with the X-Men and the mutants try to grab him. This is Cyclops, Colossus, Rogue, the Professor, Wolverine and Storm. They are not successful. And we get to hear comments about how agile and strong Spidey is. Later on, in another issue, Spider-Man punches Bulldozer of the Wrecking Crew cold and we get a comment on how strong he is. Spider-Man's basket of powers does make him formidable; it's good to get this highlighted here.
