If you haven’t seen it yet, Thor is a ridiculous and entertaining superhero spectacle. All the leads did a great job, particularly Hopkins as Odin.

Flash had a lute with a recorder built in, and Dr. Zarkoff’s wand was actually a transporter-type device. Came the inevitable duel. The magician did some tricks, then Zarkoff pointed his wand and sent him off to the ship. He arrived in a chair, where Dale, waiting, tied him up with rope.
