The top voted topic for an alignment grid from our poll a while back was the Marvel Cinematic Universe. We did a really popular one for Guardians of the Galaxy a while back, and in that same vein, we’re going to do a few other of the movie franchises on their own.
With people visiting this week, this is our plan for the week, so hope you like! Today: the nine alignments of the Thor movies!
