Added DiffLines:

* DefacementInsult: The community of Bleachville, which was long rife with racial tensions between its majority-white population and a neighboring reservation, experienced a rash of vandalism warning that the "Red Nation will rise again". [[spoiler:The vandalism was later revealed to have been carried out by a bunch of white racists hoping to start a riot to wipe out the reservation's inhabitants]].

At some point during the Second World War, the RedSkull [[{{Ghostapo}} enacted an arcane ritual under the orders of Adolf Hitler]], causing a mysterious artifact to fall from the heavens and crash land in Antarctica. Upon locating the artifact--a large hammer, supposedly tied to the Norse goddess Skadi--and learning that he is incapable of lifting it, the Skull has the Thule Society seal it away in a fortress and guard it with their lives. Fast forward to the present day, where [[DaddysLittleVillain Sin]], believing the hammer to be her inheritance, comes to collect; and after killing the guards and getting her hands on the hammer, she proves capable of lifting it. Of course, as with any mystical weapon there is a catch to wielding it, and this hammer is no exception; for, as the runic inscription on its shaft states,

** StrongAsTheyNeedToBe: With the little time that the Serpent got to show his strength, most of his power remains only in supposition; either he is a casual traducPlanet-Buster or a Universal Threat.

** StrongAsTheyNeedToBe: Odin has faced down far stronger opponents than the Serpent in the past without even a shudder, and has undergone a degree of BadassDecay in regards to just how powerful he really should be (in the past its been demonstrated he can destroy entire ''galaxies''). The Serpent is powerful, but it doesn't even come close to matching the power of, say, [[Comicbook/DoctorStrange Dread]] [[DimensionLord Dormammu]], or the various other things he has succesfully defeated before.

** The prologue story in ''The Mighty Thor'' #7 hints that Cul is possessed, and that the Serpent may be another entity.



* IdenticalGrandson: Not a blood relation, exactly, but the glimpse of the original Worthy in one of the tie-ins reveals that they look very much like the present-day characters they possess during the event.



* SeriesContinuityError: Fear Itself is full of these mostly written by the same writer. Odin has always been portrayed as the god with a plan for anything to save everyone and willing to sacrifice himself for the good of all. Yet a last resort plan is his only plan. Odin is depicted as defeating the Serpent only after a massive war the first time around. The prequel Fraction wrote depicted Odin defeating the Serpent with ease. Odin mourns the death of Thor, but previously Fraction wrote Thor resurrecting Odin with ease which is a power that has always alluded Thor and Odin in the past and ask why Odin didn't resurrect Thor. The Serpent displays vast strength and mystical powers such as shattering Captain America's shield, but forgets these to turn into a giant snake that is easily cut up by Thor

** Additionally, the history of the Serpent given in the series and a number of other events, such as the portrayal of their father Bor's death and Odin's sacrifice of his eye, are irreconcilable with past portrayals. For that matter, it's been very well established that the Midgard Serpent is the "Serpent" in the prophecy the story is built around. Nor is the idea that Earth was once the Serpent's domain in keeping with every other depiction of the history of Marvel's Earth. (Unless, as suggested in the Thor title's tie-in, the Serpent was possessing Cul rather than simply being Cul.)
