Marvel Comics’ Thor is Now a Chick

Thor #1 cover by Russell DautermanHey, at least they didn’t lamely “kill” him off, then ran a 2-3-year mega crossover about his “death,” only to resurrect him at the end of those 2-3 years. This time, they just took away his hammer and gave it to some lady.

Yup, it’s that time of the year again, when Marvel Comics realizes they’re just not selling nearly enough of those pesky “Thor” comic books.

So … Female Thor!

Writes the House (out) of Ideas:

This October, Marvel Comics evolves once again in one of the most shocking and exciting changes ever to shake one of the “big three” of Captain America, Iron Man and Thor. No longer is the classic Thunder God able to hold the mighty hammer, Mjölnir, and a brand new female hero will emerge 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!”

Female Thor will take over in a new “Thor” #1 issue, while Guy Thor gets his own title “Unworthy Thor” #1.

Meanwhile, Movie Thor re-teams with his Avengers buddy in Joss Whedon’s “The Avengers: Age of Ultron” in 2015.

    How was Thor unworthy? i havent really followed recent arcs. I’ve still catching up after Siege.

    Well why not? Loki was a woman before Tom Hiddleston made him cool! I doubt this will last more than a few years but I’m interested to see what they come up with. Marvel has had some really intriguing stories and changes over the past few years. And from what I read it’s not going to be someone with Thor’s powers, but will be THOR!!

      Wasn’t Loki only inhabiting Sif’s body?

      • http://www.beyondhollywood.com/ Dedpool

        Yes and No. Ragnarok hit and all Asgardians were being reborn in new human bodies. Loki stole the one meant for Sif. But it was still Loki. I actually loved the look. I will wait and see what happens with this though.

    Is just curious how the current Marvel Universe is more and more like Earth X.

    Female Thor
    Terrigen Mist Released
    The Watcher’s current situation

    Not complaining. Marvel normally handles these kind of things very well. Oh, and I loooooove earth X!

      Good call!! That would be very interesting. Maybe not getting a full on Earth X but something close.

    This could be Sif who possessed blonde hair as a child.

      Doubtful, I’m sure a Female Thor meeting Siif issue is already in the works.

  • Aegon the Conqueror

    This is bullshit! Give female heroes better storylines.

    • http://www.beyondhollywood.com/ Dedpool

      Yes female heroes need better storylines, but like I said they did it with Loki, and it worked so lets see how this turns out.

    If Thor is the offspring of Odin then why can’t there be other offspring from the union of other Gods?
