Marvel Announces Changes to Thor

Posted by - 12:06 PM on 07/15/14
Marvel has announced that the new Thor will be a woman.
"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!" Series writer Jason Aaron emphasizes, "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."

Worth noting: This is in the comics, not the movies.

I'm surprised they didn't give it to a transgender just to be PC, respectfully.

You knew it was coming. Is it not the day and age we live in? We have to appease everyone. There's always another step it can be taken to. I clearly didn't mean it in bad taste. It's just like the Assassins Creed with women thing all over again. Its a refreshing take on an old story, I'm all for it, but I hope they do it progress the tale and not just for a news story.
