So, It was announced this week that one of the most popular superheroes in the world right now, will be getting a major makeover this coming October (on The View of all places...only Whoopi Goldberg can appreciate this stuff on that show, right?).
Yeah, I’m talking about Marvel’s God of Thunder, Thor, will now be female in the upcoming title, simply called “Thor”, written by Jason Aaron.
Aaron and Marvel released a statement 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."
Interesting words, but still very vague on the details. Let’s get this straight...Thor’s likely NOT getting a sex-change. He’s a deity. And the words inscribed on his hammer, Mjolnir clearly state, "Whosoever holds this hammer, if he be worthy, shall possess the power of Thor." So...it’s more than possible that the hammer and the power of Thor...will be held by a female wielder, much like Thor’s former host, Donald Blake.
