Thor: Goddess of Thunder?

Post by tony ingram on Wed Jul 16, 2014 6:31 pm

Marvel replacing their major characters with new versions is nothing new. Steve Rogers has been replaced as Captain America for lengthy runs on two occasions (and for a briefer run on a third) and is apparently about to be again, Tony Stark gave up the Iron Man suit for a time, and even Spider-Man has spent the last few months brain swapped with Dr Octopus. But the new Thor (who is certainly not the first, or even the second, substitute Thor Marvel have given us) is breaking new ground...by getting a sex change! So, my question is:if Marvel wanted a female Thor, why not just use established character Thor Girl? And is anyone really going to take this seriously?

Given that we're talking superheroes, I'm not sure how seriously I'd take any of it. I don't see why this in particular would be more or less serious than anything else.
But, with this, why not? He's either an alien or a god, who knows what that means in terms of sex-fluidity? I say all that matters is if the story is good.

I suppose if the petite Jane Foster shaved her head, she could become a little Balder.

Is there any chance this Fem-Thor could just be Thor himself in disguise? (Hey, there was this myth where Thor disguised himself as a woman to reclaim his hammer . . . )

No. Now that more information has emerged, it appears the original Thor will still be around, but will no longer be the god of thunder. It's to do with the inscription on the hammer about "whomsoever be worthy" getting the power of Thor. Supposedly, Thor is no longer worthy and can't lift the hammer, and this new character picks it up.

We've got bars full of people who think they're geniuses, especially after the third pint. Does that count?

We've got plenty of people who think they're geniuses without the alcohol. Most of them are talking heads on CNN, Fox News, etc. At least, then, we know where they are and can easily avoid them (sort of like crossing the street to avoid someone unseemly).

Anywho, Thorie (as I'm probably going to refer to her) is due out next month.

Then they must have a death duel to see which one can keep the name "Dave" and which will have to be known by Osgood Dullsworth.

I reckon Dave Bateman will win. Dave Mullet's got to be 65 if he's a day. Osgood Dullsworth would suit him, too.

His last name's "mullet"?

Does he wear his hair in that style, too?
