Marvel is excited to announce an all-new era for the God of Thunder in brand new series, THOR, written by Jason Aaron (Thor: God of Thunder, Original Sin) complimented with art from Russell Dauterman (Cyclops).
This October, Marvel Comics evolves once again in one of the most shocking and exciting changes ever to shake one of Marvel’s “big three” – Captain American, Iron Man and Thor – Marvel Comics will be introducing an all-new THOR, GOD OF THUNDER. No longer is the classic male hero able to hold the mighty hammer, Mjölnir, a brand new female hero will emerge will who will be worthy of the name THOR. Who is she? Where did she come from and what is her connection to Asgard and the Marvel Universe?
“The inscription on Thor’s hammer reads ‘Whosoever holds this hammer, if HE be worthy, shall possess the power of Thor.’ Well it’s time to update that inscription,” says Marvel editor Wil Moss. “The new Thor continues Marvel’s proud tradition of strong female characters like Captain Marvel, Storm, Black Widow and more. And this new Thor isn’t a temporary female substitute - she’s now the one and only Thor, and she is worthy!”
I’ll be interested to see how this plays out…
One one hand, I’m happy for the representation — and all the amazing cosplays that will happen because of it. I’m hoping that this will be as good as Miles is as Spider-man.
On the other hand it seems like this female character seems defined wholly by the previous role of the male character — even insofar as keeping his name along with the title (it’d be odd if a character called Jacob: Lord of Lightning was replaced by a new person who insisted on using the name Jacob still despite having a different name — like if Miles changed his identity to Peter Parker).
However, I suppose that all comes down to how they make the story pull together to tie her into the name and title. Fingers crossed!!!
Jason Aaron has done a brilliant job with Thor: God of Thunder, so I’m holding off judgement until I see how it plays out.
My one complaint at this juncture is that if the real Thor (the son of Odin) still exists, then this female Thor is not really Thor—but someone with Thor’s hammer & power. Unless Aaron is, somehow, going make it possible for 2 Thors to exist simultaneously.
The film may not be that great—even though Olivia Newton-John is beautiful in it—but the soundtrack is great. 1980.
