Meet The New Female Thor!
Marvel Comics has announced its new project: a Female Thor. This change was announced early today on ‘The View”.
Marvel Comics’ decision to pass the mighty hammer (Mjölnir) to a female hero is part of a move to shake things up a bit. This is starting with the big three Marvel heroes: Thor, Captain America, and Iron Man. As some may already know, Captain America will have some else take his place.
Female Thor will be introduced in an all new series, ‘Thor: God of Thunder’.
This is what series writer Jason Aaron had to say, “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.”
If there are readers who are wondering if this just a passing thing, it’s not. Marvel editor, Will Moss had this to say on the matter, “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!”
This female Thor will make the 8th title to feature a female protagonist.
