Paramedic Jane Foster struggles to save people during an attack by the Wrecking Crew. But only the God of Thunder can save her.

Story

In New York Harbor a seagull cleans itself while across from the Statue of Liberty.

Unconscious Dockworkers AEMH

Sleeping on the job is a good way to get fired

Nearby, dockworkers lie unconscious near large containers. A forklift lies on it's side. The men groan in pain.

Above a Stark Industries logo, a large wrecking ball smashes through a crate revealing it's contents. Thunderball then swings he chain around his arm to rest it.

Thunderball Finds Gamma Emitter AEMH

Not all weapons started as such

Wrecker walks up next to him patting his crowbar in his hand. Thunderball walks up to the broken crate noting that it's what "The Boss" wanted, a Gamma Energy Emitter from Stark Industries. He notes that while they stopped making weapons, they still invent many other things.

They hear police sirens off in the distance and turn around. Wrecker looks off in the distance. He sees five police cars surround one SWAT van. He tells Thunderball to get his toy so they can go.

Jane Foster Intro AEMH

Onwards, towards destiny

An ambulance races through the streets passing other cars. On the radio, the dispatcher reports officers down and a possible Code: Blue. The passenger paramedic wonders what that is. The driver, Jane Foster, knows it means supervillains.

Piledriver Leaps Onto Car AEMH

Playing leap frog

Back at the docks, police officers are shooting pistols and machine guns at something. Piledriver jumps down and smashes one of the cruisers. He picks up the hood and police fire at him without effect. Piledriver throws the hood at one of the men.

Bulldozer Smashes Car AEMH

Why do Bulldozer, Juggernaut, and Rhino all have the same MO?

Nearby officers are firing at Bulldozer who is running towards them. He smashes right through two cruisers without slowing down.

The ambulance nears the dock. Jane skids around a corner and guns the engine. One of the cruisers lands and she barely dodges it. She skids around another corner as it blows up. The other paramedic shields his face then looks up.

Jane Foster Paramedic AEMH

Here she comes to save the day

Jane slams on the brakes next to the officers. She gets out, surveys the damage, and runs towards one of the fallen men.

Wrecker runs up and bats two officers away. He goes to a cruiser and smashes it, knocking the officers behind it back. One elderly officer shakes as he holds his pistol up. He drops it and collapses.

Black Paramedic Closes Door AEMH

People, people everywhere and only one to spare

Jane looks up to see the elderly man fall then back down to the nearby officer. She put a neck brace on him and his holding his head up. She turns to the other paramedic and demands his help. He sits in the cab holding onto a medical kit. He shakes his head saying that the situation is crazy then closes the door. Jane looks back towards the people.

Gamma Emitter Charges AEMH

The bigger they are...

Wrecker, Piledriver, and Bulldozer walk up towards her. High above, Thunderballs carries the gamma emitter. He levels it towards the ground and activates it. It begins to glow as he aims it at Jane.

Thunderball Smashes Into Containers AEMH

...The harder they fall

Just as it's ready to fire, Thunderball is knocked back and the gamma emitter falls out of his hands. He knocks one container up into the air and smashes three more. As he stops, Mjolnir flies off his stomach and back into the hand of Thor the Thunderer.

Thor floats in the air watching. He looks up and a lightning bolt tears through the otherwise calm sky. He orders the "mortals" to move back so he can deal with them. Jane watches as he flies towards the four foes.

Thor Confronts Piledriver Bulldozer AEMH

The cavalry's arrived

He lands in front of Piledriver and Bulldozer. Bulldozer sneers and charges. When he gets close Thor sidesteps him and hits him over the head with Mjolnir damaging his helmet. Bulldozer flies into a large pile of containers.

Piledriver Hits Thor AEMH

This town ain't big enough for two super strong blonde guys

Thor turns just as Piledriver runs up and punches him across the face. Thor staggers back and Piledriver continues punching. Thor holds up Mjolnir and when Piledriver gets close he hits him in the stomach with the handle. Piledriver staggers back and collapses.

Just then, Wrecker whacks Thor with his crowbar across the back. Thor looks up and Wrecker hits him again. Thor flies across the docks. Wrecker is pleased with himself and turns. However, he hears something and turns again.

Thor Battles Wrecker AEMH

"Your breath stinks, knave."

Thor bursts out of the containers with a lightning charged Mjolnir. He slams the hammer down but Wrecker holds up his crowbar in time. The two stare each other in the face. Thor says if Wrecker surrenders he'll show mercy. Wrecker then kicks Thor in the stomach and watches him stammer back. He then knocks Thor away again.

Above them, Thunderball rubs his head as he walks towards the ledge. He looks over and sees Thor rolling on the ground and Wrecker walking up. He looks up and sees a container above Thor.

Wrecking Crew Beat Thor AEMH

Typically, dropping a few tons on the hero would be reason enough to gloat. But Thor's not typical.

Thunderball swings his ball to throw at the crane. The crane sways and the container falls right on Thor. The crane then falls over onto the container. Piledriver, Bulldozer, and Wrecker walk up as Thunderball drops down, all laughing.

Wrecker begins to gloat, calling Thor and idiot, when Mjolnir flies out and knocks them all away. Piledriver dents a nearby container and falls. Bulldozer and Thunderball falls far behind where they were.

Wrecker Sees Mjolnir AEMH

Beaten at his own game

Thor calmly walks out of the smoke. As it does he sees that Wrecker has taken Jane hostage with the crowbar to her throat. He tells Thor to back off or he'll kill her. Thor asks if he has any honor to which Wrecker replies no. Thor tells him he should be familiar with attacking an opponent from behind.

Wrecker looks back just in time to see Mjolnir hit him in the face. Jane crouches down as Wrecker goes flying into a pole. He slumps down and passes out.

Thor Meets Jane AEMH

'Tis love at first sight

Mjolnir flies back to Thor and he looks towards Jane who thanks him. Thor wonders why should would go into this situation when she has no powers, armor, or weapons. She explains that she needed to help them and that's what she does. She introduces herself.

Heimdall Calls Thor AEMH

"Stop flirting with the ladies and come home"

Thor smiles and is about to introduce himself. Just then a bright light appears overhead. Heimdall appears asking for Thor. He tells Thor that he carries a message from his father Odin. Asgard is under siege and he must return home.

Thor Leaves Jane AEMH

"Gotta go. Daddy's calling."

Thor turns back to Jane and bids her well. He leaps up and flies towards the Rainbow Bridge. Jane covers her eyes as the light overhead disappears. She stands alone among the wreckage from the battle.

Trivia

  • There are four dockworkers shown.
Old Police Officer AEMH

Will this be the first (possible) of many Spider-Man character appearances?

  • The elderly officer could be Spider-Man supporting character George Stacy. He appeared in The Spectacular Spider-Man where the rights were held by Sony Picture Televison, but they since gave up the television rights meaning the characters could appear on other series such as this one.
  • Thor's first regular series appearance since The Marvel Super Heroes.
  • Wrecker calls Jane Foster Florence Nightingale. Nightingale was a famous nurse. In the comics, Jane was a nurse rather than a paramedic.
  • Heimdall tells Thor of a siege of Asgard. At the time the episodes was being produced, Siege was a major crossover event in the Marvel Universe that involved Thor and Asgard.

Goofs

  • The clearly ballistic weapons of the police are making noise for an energy weapon.
  • The number of fallen police is drastically reduced as Thunderball aims the gamma emitter. Especially considering they were all unconscious just seconds before.
Extra Small Jane AEMH

Seriously, she's not even as big as his arm

  • The comparative size of Thor and Jane Foster changes from when she first stands after she is saved to when she introduces herself.

Continuity

  • First appearance of Jane Foster, Wrecker, Thunderball, Piledriver, Bulldozer, Thor, and Heimdall on the series. Asgard and the Rainbow Bridge can be seen behind Heimdall.
Stark Industries Logo AEMH

Hope Tony's has superhuman insurance
