ghost: *haunts my house*
In a continued effort to bring new readers to the world of comic books, Marvel teamed up with ABC’s The View to promote the next story arc in Thor, God of Thunder. Looks like a new hand will be wielding the mighty Mjolnir, and it’s not the typical male archetype we’ve come to expect from our Asgardian hammer tosser. The new Thor will be a woman.
“This is not She-Thor. This is not Lady Thor. This is not Thorita. This is THOR. This is the THOR of the Marvel Universe. But it’s unlike any Thor we’ve ever seen before,” said series writer, Jason Aaron.
Aaron will be joined on the book by Cyclops artist, Russell Dauterman.
Just who will take up the mantle of the God of Thunder? Marvel may wait til San Diego Comic Con next week to drop that bombshell on us. But on The View, a little clue was hinted about her origins, “The story behind her is she created herself. She was saved by Thor and she came down to Earth, followed him, and made herself look like Thor and so now she’s taking over.”
REALLY looking forward to this!
THIS IS ALL I EVER WANTED!
a (mortal human?) woman picks up Mjolnir, and is WORTHY and possess the power of Thor. No Girl-Thor, Lady-Thor, gender-bent-Thor just a woman who embodies the god now. Thor was once a disabled man, now he is a woman. THIS. IS. AMAZING.
Thor is an equal opportunity powerset. Just so long as you are good of heart (among other things) you too could BE THOR.
This chick IS THOR. not a knock off, not a hyphen, not an appendage. She is not adjacent to Thor. Not his sidekick. not his love interest. SHE. IS. THOR.
This means SO MUCH.
You explain it better than that TheView people. I gotta agree.
