“In this vault I store all the wonderful items I’ve secured over the years… But unlike my fellow well-moneyed associates, it’s not enough to just have these things, I have to tinker with them… I have to make them …better.”

chances are, this is probably going to be the new costume for Thor, which, of course, is similar to the one he wore on Millar and Hitch’s The Ultimates. and look, redesigned Mjolnir. that’ll be fun.
