Synopsis for "All Swords Against Them!"Edit

The Asgardians return home, only to find imposters in their place. As they battle, Thor knocks the false Heimdall from Bifrost, where he changes image to an unknown man, then vanishes. Thor returns to Asgard, where he and Sif are trapped by the false Balder, who then reveals himself as Igron. Balder comes from behind and knocks Igron out, and the spell fades, as does the false gods. After the true Asgardians are revealed, Odin tells Thor about a menace that approaches from space.

  • Cover artist credits for this issue are disputed. It is highly probable that then Art Director John Romita, Sr. was part of the production. It is also possible that Rich Buckler was a cover artist. His chameleon like tendencies at the time (homageing Neal Adams as well as Jack Kirby) are difficult for this editor to detect.[1]
