“Who Lurks Beyond the Labyrinth!”
Gerry Conway, author/ John Buscema & Joe Sinnott, artists/ John Costanza, letterer/ Petra Goldberg, colorist/ Len Wein, editor
Sif and Hercules enter the domain of Kamo Tharrin. Much of Kamo Tharrin’s nature is unclear. He is a blind being of immense power, wielding a silly looking staff with a giant lion head on one end, known as the Runestaff.
Sif and Hercules trespass upon Kamo Tharrin’s home despite his protests. When he refuses to give them his staff, they beat him up and steal it from him.
Meanwhile, on Earth, Thor is so angry about Nurse Jane Foster’s condition that he smashes the roof of a building to rubble, which rains down upon a crowd of passerby. Thor manages to destroy the falling stonework before it hits anyone, but it was a close thing.
Later, the Absorbing Man sneaks into Foster’s hospital room, where a pensive Thor waits with the Vizier. It is unclear how Creel survived his previous encounter with Thor, but he wants revenge and he has decided that absorbing Thor’s hammer, is the key to victory. Touch it, he does, kicking off a fight that Thor directs into the street, away from Nurse Foster.
Sif and Hercules teleport back to Jane’s room, assuming that Kamo Tharrin will be hot on their heels. Sif commands the Vizier to immediately begin the Spell of Revival!
First Appearance: Kamo Tharrin, the Runestaff
