Marvel Year Two: Thor

Dr. Blake is established as a world class genius who creates an android who is superior to humanity in every way, but it blows up before it could threaten the world like Dr. Pym's creation Ultron.  No changes to his powers, and they still haven't sorted out the exact relationship of Blake and Thor.  Asgard becomes more prominent, and we're introduced to a new feature of The Tales of Asgard.

Thor leads the way with romantic angst.  The disability angle doesn't feature much.  Instead, Jane Foster complains that he's not expressive enough with his feelings, while Blake can't act until he can convince Odin to allow him to marry a mortal.
