Super Saturday: Thor Puzzler #5

Question: Exactly what is the relationship between Balder and Sif?

Answer: What I refer to as the "Reverse Skywalker".



(Pages from JIM/Thor #102, 144. Plot/writer Stan Lee. Penciler Jack Kirby. Dates 1964, 1967.)

  1. Wow, yeah...THAT's pretty weird. I don't recall incest being a big part of Teutonic myth. I mean, these aren't the Greek gods after all!

  2. Yeah, the anomaly is really that single appearance in JIM #102 (in a "Tales of Asgard" backup story, ages before Sif became a warrior). When she reappeared a few years later, she was always the sister of Heimdall.
