If SHE Be So Worthy: Marvel's New THOR

Marvel has annouced a new series featuring the god of thunder this October simply entitled Thor. With this new title comes a new god of thunder altogther and she is not to be trifled with.  That's right the classic male hero we've known as Thor will no longer be able to wield mighty Mjolnir. An all new female will be donning the mantle of the mighty Thor.  Thor God of Thunder scribe, Jason Aaron will be at the helm once again with art duties falling to Russell Dauterman who most recently displayed his talents in the Cyclops mini-series.  

This is a move Marvel has made before, recently moving Carol Danvers out of her role as Ms. Marvel and into the Captain Marvel slot. Not that the House of Ideas has had any shortage of strong female heroes which Marvel takes the opportunity to mention in the press release included below.  What do you think of the change?  How do you like Thor's new look?  And how will it affect the books' sales?  Chime in and let us know your opinion.

MARVEL PROUDLY PRESENTS THOR

New York, NY – July 15th, 2014 – Marvel is excited to announce an all-new era for the God of Thunder in brand new series, THORwritten by Jason Aaron (ThorGod of ThunderOriginal Sin) complimented with art from Russell Dauterman (Cyclops).

This October, Marvel Comics evolves once again in one of the most shocking and exciting changes ever to shake one of Marvel’s “big three” – Captain American, Iron Man and Thor – Marvel Comics will be introducing an all-new THOR, GOD OF THUNDER. No longer is the classic male hero able to hold the mighty hammer,Mjölnir, a brand new female hero will emerge who will be worthy of the name THOR. Who is she? Where did she come from and what is her connection to Asgard and the Marvel Universe?

“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.”

THOR is the latest in the ever-growing and long list of female-centric titles that continues to invite new readers into the Marvel Universe. This female THOR is the 8thtitle to feature a lead female protagonist and aims to speak directly to an audience that long was not the target for Super Hero comic books in America: women and girls.

About C2E2

23-04-2017 Fantastic Forum Blog Oscar - avatar Oscar

A little while ago I wrote about why the small cons have an advantage over the gigantic San Diego Comic Con. So it was in this spirit that went down to Chicago, IL for C2E2. The trip simply confirmed everything I said before. The show floor itself is divided into three sections. The autograph area, where for a small fee you can get an autograph and a picture from one of your favorite supporting cast members. The main floor, where you can buy just about anything comic book or fantasy related. Unlike the big cons there’s nothing new here, none of the...

People Should Go To Wonder-Con

06-04-2017 Fantastic Forum Blog Oscar - avatar Oscar

More people should be going to any and all of the little “baby-cons” across the country. I’ve made this statement to as many people as would listen. Partially in the hope of reducing the giant crowds at the real Comic-Con in San Diego, but also because these little cons are what SDCC used to be. Each year I make the trip down to San Diego I see more and more of the comics being swallowed up by whatever the latest upcoming blockbuster needs to advertise that year. It’s gotten to that point that more and more people are referring to it...

Ironfist: A Review Within A Review

28-03-2017 Fantastic Forum Blog Oscar - avatar Oscar

There has been a lot of discussion about the latest Marvel/Netflix collaboration “Iron Fist”. I was very worried when every review I read about the show said almost the exact same horrible things. While I normally prefer to read a review of the entire series, I also believe that 6 episodes (almost half the series) is more than enough time to establish your characters and hook in the viewer. When time finally arrived for me to watch it for myself, I cracked open a bottle of whiskey to help me get through the difficult chore ahead of me. Five episodes...

Whats the deal with "The Crow"…

15-08-2016 Fantastic Forum Blog moses magnum - avatar moses magnum

Late last week news broke out of "Aquaman" star Jason Momoa playing the Crow in the reboot. Many people had apprehensions, your humble narrator being one of them. My co-host on Fantastic Jorum (Wednesday nights 6:30 pm pacific time on allgames.com) JOE said Momoa wasn't fit to play Eric Draven. i dont think Eric Draven needs to be in the reboot. The nature of the crow as a concept is that it can be anyone! So they can make a totally new movie. They can tell a totally new story that could add to the mythos, but i digress this...

The dismal performance of Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles: Out of the Shadows has Paramount rethinking the future of the franchise. A source from inside the studio has reported just how drastic the reaction is.

There is still a debate among the higher ups on whether to stay live action or go back to animated. There’s a debate over the profitability of big name actors and...

Gambit – one of the smoothest, best looking operators in the world. Deadpool – one of the most annoying, ugliest dirtbags around. Naturally these two have beef. Be there this June when tensions reach their boiling points in DEADPOOL V GAMBIT #1 – a new limited series from writers Ben Acker & Ben Blacker (Thunderbolts) and artist Danilo Beyruth (Gwenpool)!
