In anticipation of its Marvel NOW! launch, Marvel has revealed Esad Ribic's cover for "Thor: God of Thunder" #2 written by Jason Aaron. The issue, releasing in November, continues Thor's quest to stop the mysterious Gorr, the God Butcher in the past, present and future.

The publisher revealed the official title and creative team of the "Thor: God of Thunder" earlier this month, with writer Jason Aaron revealing his plan to split the God of Thunder into three different incarnations for a story arc that spans thousands of years.

"I do flash back and show a young Thor in action, but he's actually just one of three Thors that I want to focus on," Aaron said at the announcement. "This first story is an epic tale that plays out over the course of thousands of years. So we spend time with young Thor in the Viking age — the young, hotheaded god of the Vikings, who loves to come down to Midgard and get into trouble. In the present, we see Thor the Avenger on a journey that takes him to the far corners of space, interacting with all sorts of new space gods and wondrous new locations. And then we also see old King Thor, who's the last king of Asgard, thousands of years in the future, where something has gone horribly, horribly wrong."
