2020’S SLEEPER PICKS: IRON guy #24 as well as GOD OF THUNDER #19

While Thor #337 as well as Angela: Asgard’s Assassin #1 has the spotlight, keep your eyes on Iron guy #24 as well as Thor: God of Thunder #19. Here’s why.


The huge news in the opening weeks of 2020 has been that Christian Bale is apparently being cast for the MCU, particularly like as well as Thunder. While fans are petitioning marvel to have the lauded actor voice Beta Ray Bill, he might fit up as a villain in the current Thor movie. In fact, it seems likely that Dario Agger (aka, Minotaur) will be making his method into the MCU. Here’s my logic.

Nothing has been stated about the plot for like as well as Thunder aside from Jane Foster taking up the mantle as the Goddess of Thunder. past that, marvel has stated nothing about the current installment of Thor. That leaves the door available to lots of possibilities. 

During Jason Aaron’s Thor run, the evil Roxxon company was a main antagonist to both the God as well as Goddess of Thunder. Every dastardly company needs a face, as well as Roxxon was saddled with Agger’s. For those unfamiliar with him, Agger is a sadistic billionaire who transforms into Minotaur with a stamina that rivals Thor’s. 

Going back to Aaron’s Thor run, we can presume that his plot of Jane Foster establishing cancer while moonlighting as the thunder goddess will be the motivation behind like as well as Thunder. That will open the door for Agger to be the featured villain, as well as Bale would completely in shape the role. If that is the case, the Minotaur secrets will quickly inflate. 

IRON guy #24

Iron guy #24 is a true sleeper pick. Debuting in 1970, the Minotaur was originally the change ego of Miklos Vryolak, as well as it is the pricier of the two comics on today’s list. Still, even the higher-end grades are fairly inexpensive pickups. only the 9.8 as well as 9.6 offer for over $150, as well as neither of those grades has traded hands considering that 2013. 

Last year, a 9.4 offered for $128 on January 24, tying it with a 2005 sale for its height value. When it pertains to investing, that’s nothing. putting less than $200 into a Bronze Age very first appearance is a steal, as well as I encourage you to add it to your collection as well as wait. At this point, it’s not likely to lose value, so it’s not much of a gamble. 

Speaking of bang for your buck, a 7.0 offered for just $20 earlier this month. That is a fantastic sign of the specify of the market, at least for the low as well as mid grades. If a 7.0 is only bringing $20, then you can get a low grade for virtually change. There’s generally nothing to lose as well as much to gain.


Another sleeper, Thor: God of Thunder #19 may not be the very first appearance of Minotaur, however it is Agger’s premiere. the very best part is that it is dirt inexpensive at the moment. There haven’t been any type of graded sales considering that the 9.8s averaged $20 in August 2017, as well as that includes two variant covers. That’s less than the expense of the grading alone for these comics. If Bale does get revealed for the function of Agger, this will be a white-hot problem in no time.


This might turn out to be a similar situation to Avengers #47 as well as #48. ever considering that marvel Studios revealed that set Harrington was cast for the function of the Black Knight, those two problems have taken off at a legendary pace. just like the Minotaur keys, the investment danger was very little only a couple of years ago. 

I am not suggesting that either Iron guy #24 or Thor #19 will reach Avengers #48 heights. The truth is villain secrets have a shorter upside than heroes’ very first appearances since, generally, the villains have a much shorter MCU duration. Still, those villain firsts can make strong moves overnight, as well as this is your possibility to get in at ground zero before everybody unexpectedly cares about Minotaur.
