Woah! One more point for feminism! Marvel announced that they are making a new comic series of “Thor”. The twist? Thor is now a female. This isn’t “She-Thor” or “Thoralina”, this is the new Thor of the Marvel universe.
The new comics will be written by Jason Aaron with art by Russell Dauterman and will be published in October of this year. When announcing the new series, Marvel said,
“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,”
“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.” – – Marvel Editor Wil Moss
