CM Punk Makes his Marvel Comics Debut with Thor Annual #1

Posted by The Dace Man Monday, November 10, 2014
Thor Annual #1 CM PunkThe long-awaited news that the entire world has been waiting for: CM Punk has made his return. Not to a WWE ring, however, but to the pages of Marvel comics.

What's up, Dacetacular nation? That's right, the Dacetacular one here bringing you the latest news involving Marvel Comics and, in this odd instance, World Wrestling Entertainment.

If you're a huge wrestling fan like I am, you were pretty bummed out after last year's Royal Rumble when CM Punk effectively took his ball and went home. To this day Punk has never returned or mentioned anything about WWE. If you think about it, the only news or appearances we would see of CM Punk were comic related.

So it's no surprise CM Punk will be taking a crack at penning a comic himself. It was announced today that he would be joining the Marvel team to work on Thor Annual #1. Punk had this to say about his inclusion into the iconic comic distributor:
"The only thing (Jason Aaron) said to me was, 'I need a story about young Thor. Tell me what you think,'" Punk told Marvel about how he developed his story. "And the first idea that popped into my mind was the first thing I pitched to him, and he said he loved it, so we’re running with it. The idea was, let’s do a story about young Thor as kind of a brash, bratty teenager who’s like, 'I’m totally worthy of this hammer. My dad’s full of [expletive]. I don’t know why I’m not "worthy" of the hammer. Look at all this cool stuff I did.' And it’s more or less like a drinking story. He’s gonna be sitting around with a few choice characters from the Marvel Universe, and they’re all gonna be drinking, and Thor’s gonna basically be complaining about essentially why his dad won’t give him the keys to the car."
So what do you think about the wrestler turned writer? Here's to me hoping the best in the world stays true to that tag line. Good luck CM Punk.
