Marvel Comics has shocked the world by turning Thor – the God of Thunder and one of the oldest superheroes in the Marvel universe – into a woman.
In the comic books, the original – male – Thor will be judged unworthy to hold the hammer. He’ll give it up … and a woman will step in.
One of the writers, Jason Aaron, assured fans that the character will be tough, saying, “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.” Sweet!
