The story goes that on March 16th 1957, a Venusian named Valiant Thor landed on Earth and was taken to Washington DC. He met the president, vice-president, and a host of higher ups. He scored himself a three-year lease on an apartment at the Pentagon while trying to sell Eisenhower on his fairly Christian message of peace and galactic brotherhood. Sadly, Eisenhower was more worried about the American economy and rebuffed Val’s offer. But this wasn’t the last we’d hear of Val Thor.
In fact, we only know about Val because of a man named Frank Stranges: a reverend-doctor-maybe-FBI-guy-maybe-conman. We’re not really sure. And when we set out to start researching this topic, Seb found possibly the stranges…t thing of all: what appeared to be a reference to Valiant Thor from 1939! Nearly a full 20 years before Stranges claims Thor first came to Earth! What unfolded was our most researched episode to date. So settle in, grab a drink, and get ready for one weird trip!
