A Female Thor?

Just read this on the BBC News. Marvel have decided to change Thor into a female character. Really? A female Thor? You must be kidding. Is this just a coincidence that it is happening at the same time that David Cameron reshuffles the UK Government Cabinet to include more female cabinet ministers? I think not. At last it is now confirmed that Stan Lee is in league with the Tory party…
female-thorStarbuck changed gender in Battlestar Galactica, but that was many many years after the original TV series that it worked. What will we get now? A female Thor in one set of comics and the original Thor in the Avengers?

Journey-Into-Mystery-83I have read Thor since the very first issue of Journey Into Mystery #83. Not that I have the actual issue, or was reading much at all in 1962, but I have caught up with the Thor story through to the Avengers and it has always been one of my favourite characters. So if the male Thor is to become “unworthy” and give up his right to Mjölnir, that does mean that this replacement lady-Thor can be a temporary thing and ultimately give back Mjölnir when man-Thor becomes worthy again. I can hope.

One thought on “A Female Thor?”

  1. It seems strange to me and just feels like a attempt to shock fans. Shocking readers is not a bad thing when the shock is done for a good reason but just doing it for the sake of it which is what this seems to be is crazy. I think someone was smoking some strong stuff when they came up with this idea. 🙂
