Pet Avengers' Thor Frog Returns in THORS!

I'm not a big fan of Marvel Comics upcoming "Secret Wars" event, which promises to reboot the company's line of comics. Some of it seems interesting, but I've lived through too many DC Comics reboots. I have no clue what's going on over there and haven't picked up one of their comics in years. I'm afraid of that happening with Marvel Comics when this thing is over.

But there's one new "Secret Wars" series that grabbed my attention: THORS. It sounds like all of the various Thors and Thor-wannabes are stuck together in Battleworld:
The book will bring together the various Thors of many realities including Beta Ray Bill and the Ultimate Universe Thor. "This is not about the apocalypse, it’s about closing cases, "the writer told Marvel.com of the series pitch. "This is basically me doing a cop story, but with hammers instead of guns. This is me getting to do 'Homicide: Life on the Street' with lots of cosmic cops. It’s every version of Thor you can imagine, all walking beats, solving murders, getting yelled at by their commissioner and blowing off steam at their local Thor-cop bar...

"In the first issue, our Thors pick up a doozy of a murder case, one that sends them all scrambling," the writer added. "And ultimately has a few of them asking questions that may shake the foundations of everything they think they know."
Which is interesting, but this is what's gotten me all excited about this series:

Thor Frog!!!!!

That's right! Thor Frog from the Pet Avengers will be appearing in this story. Hopefully he won't be treated like a throwaway character destined for a cheap death scene. But this is very exciting!

2015 is shaping up to be the Year of the Pet Avengers!
