Thor and Steel



John Henry Irons was my favorite thing to come out of the Death of Superman event.  Here was a character inspired by the Man of Steel without being a simple copy of him with a gender or age change.  I'm not sure what he is up to in the New 52, but I hope he finds a place to shine. It would be cool to see him compare red capes and hammers with Thor one day.  I imagine this would be one of those fake-out covers, where the story would end with Thor and Odin presenting Steel with an Uru hammer to call his own.

This is a very cool cover, and I really like your story idea. Call it: "Hammer Time!"

I don't know why this made me think of it, but for some reason I'm now wanting to see a team-up of Lobo and the Bamfs. I doubt there are enough images of the latter to make it, though.

Bob, I've already used "Hammertime!" as a title once before, so I had to resist the urge here.
