4. Who was the comic relief character in the Tales of Asgard series? Upon which famous literary character was he based?

The Voluminous Volstagg was the comic relief character in Tales of Asgard. He was clearly based on the character of Falstaff, who appeared in several Shakespearean plays, including the Merry Wives of Windsor and Henry V.

5. What villain (villainess) appeared first in JIM/Thor and then subsequently appeared the most often in other Silver Age Marvel mags of any of Thor's opponents?

Among villains and villainesses appearing first in JIM/Thor, the Enchantress had by far the most appearances in other Marvel mags in the Silver Age. She made her initial appearance in Journey into Mystery #103, then appeared in a startling number of early Avengers issues, including Avengers #7, #9, #10, 15, 16, 21, 22, as well as Hulk #102 and several other issues. This is beyond her significant appearances in Journey into Mystery. She's on the short list for female villain of the 1960s; indeed she's the favorite.
