I'm Jealous...

Marvel is doing their own set of relaunches starting in October (though, unlike DC last year, Marvel is not rebooting everything. Just new starts for the new landscape that AvX is going to be creating...) and as announced over the last week, Thor is getting a new series by writer Jason Aaron (Wolverine, Scalped, Wolverine and the X-Men) and artist Esad Ribic (Loki, Ultimates, Uncanny X-Force). Not only does Aaron seem to be a great choice for it but the series's title just screams his name: Thor - God of Thunder. And here's where my jealousy comes in. Aaron has said that he has created a new villain that, along with the first story, spans decades through the life of Thor. That villain's name?
Gorr the God Butcher.
Are you shitting me?! Gorr the God Butcher?! How can anybody ever come up with a cooler name than that? Nothing can compare. This is a name to end all names and people should just stop trying now. You had my respect, Mr Aaron but now you have my envy as well.
