Key Facts

1st appearance of the God of Hammers

Debatable Firsts: there is debate as to whether or not this is a cameo. The God of Hammers is depicted as a being of energy which can be seen over the course of four pages, ending the issue in the shape of a human but still a mass of energy therefore it is labeled in this description as a first (full) appearance
