Marvel’s back in full swing, so our short summer break here is over. With Thor: Love and Thunder, Chris Hemsworth grabs the reins of a runaway, screaming goat-fueled, adventure.

The film also marks the introduction of Jane Foster’s “Mighty Thor”, introduced in Jason Aaron’s universally praised run on the Marvel comics Thor books in 2005.

Taika Waititi’s “Thor: Ragnarok” was groundbreaking, but is it possible to marry the manic energy of the prior film with the gravity due to Jane’s story arc from the books? We discuss where Thor: Love and Thunder ranks in the overall MCU, how it advances the broader story, and what just plain worked and didn’t work for us on the latest Casual Comics Cast.

Plus, our first impressions of Black Adam from the recent trailer – and our picks for new comic books of the week. All this, and more – wherever fine podcasts are streamed! (And embedded below, just to make it easier for you)
