Summary

Narrator: Daniel Gillies

Thor: Metal Gods Episode 10 is a dramatic episode, one in which Thor calls for aid—and it’s responded to with vigor. A dramatic battle full of highs and lows can be found here.

 

The Cavalry Has Arrived in Thor: Metal Gods Episode 10

Thor’s epic and metal quest continues in Thor: Metal Gods Episode 10. Thor, alongside his brother and new allies, has been put into quite a predicament, all while on the hunt for a special crown with a very dark history.

This latest series for Thor is being published by Serial Box. Each week they’ve released a new episode (or chapter, if you prefer), continuing the tale of a famous Marvel hero. We are nearing the end of the first season, with only five episodes left after this one.

Thor is the first Marvel series to launch on this platform, but he will not be the last. Black Widow, Jessica Jones, and Black Panther all have impending series that have already been announced. And who knows? Maybe they’ll add even more beloved characters to that list.

A Cry for Reinforcements

Thor: Metal Gods Episode 10 was a dramatic addition to what has already proven to be a thrilling and unique series. Brian Keene took the helm for this episode, and he was unafraid to show us the loss and devastation that may come with space battles. He also managed to weave in many other elements, some classic to Thor’s series in particular. This not only made the series feel more grounded (once again), but has added to the complexity of the story itself.

The decision to include more famous Marvel characters in this episode was a smart one. It was a rallying call—both for the characters, and the readers. Their introduction was truly epic, while providing an out sorely needed by those mired in battle.

All things considered, Thor: Metal Gods has done a brilliant job of sticking both to the musical theme, and the core elements that make Thor such a fascinating character. All while adding in new elements, making the Serial Box version stand out as its own format.

The tenth episode held true to this format while having a bit of fun along the way. The more I read this series, the more excited I become to see how the final confrontation will go. I’m also more than a little bit curious to hear if there will be a second season, and if so, what it will contain.

Narration

As with the rest of this season, Daniel Gillies was the narrator for Thor: Metal Gods Episode 10. At this point, it really is safe to say that his voice is the voice of this story and vice versa. He’s really adapted quite well to the role and is even having fun with it.

This is an episode with heavy lows and dramatic highs. There’s a real epic sense to the writing itself, but it is all further enhanced by the narration provided by Gillies. His voice resonates with the impact and empowering nature of what is happening. It’s actually ideal when you think about it.

Speaking of enhancements, the events of the battle itself were accompanied by sounds to go with it. Much like you’d expect to find in a comic, only with an audiobook spin. There was something about it that felt almost second nature, making them a seamless inclusion to the narrative. And I firmly believe that it is all the proof we need that they were perfectly timed and placed.

Conclusion

Thor: Metal Gods Episode 10 was a dramatic and intense episode. Given that we’re nearing the end of the season, that’s not much of a surprise. What is a surprise—in a good way—are the characters that have been brought into the fray. They are sure to turn the tides while giving readers (or listeners) even more reasons to cheer.
