    Default Marvel Comics makes Thor a thunder goddess

    Marvel Comics makes Thor a thunder goddess

    NEW YORK (AP) — Thor is now a Goddess of Thunder.Marvel Comics announced Tuesday that the hammer-wielding Norse superhero will be a woman in upcoming comic book issues. Marvel was thin on details explaining the switch, but said in a press release that "no longer is the classic male hero able to hold the mighty hammer."
    The new Thor was debuted on "The View" where artwork was revealed showcasing a buxom blonde clad a caped costume and brandishing the trademark hammer.
    Series writer Jason Aaron says in a statement that "This is not She-Thor. This is not Lady Thor. ... This is THE Thor."
    The Marvel universe has historically been male-dominated, but that may be changing. Marvel Studios is developing a stand-alone film for Black Widow, the character played by Scarlett Johansson.

    Edit:

    From Marvel...

    Marvel Proudly Presents Thor

    Marvel is excited to announce an all-new era for the God of Thunder in brand new series, THOR, written by Jason Aaron complimented with art from Russell Dauterman.This October, Marvel Comics evolves once again in one of the most shocking and exciting changes ever to shake one of the “big three” of Captain America, Iron Man and Thor. No longer is the classic Thunder God able to hold the mighty hammer, Mj√∂lnir, and a brand new female hero will emerge worthy of the name THOR.

    That is a rather odd decision to such an established character.

    The new Thor was debuted on "The View". Yeah all comic book fans watch that show! What's the matter Marvel, you couldn't come up with a new female superhero? So you had to destroy our existing heroes? BTW there is already a powerful female goddess. she is called WONDER WOMEN!! Jerks!

    I stopped reading comics a loooooooong time ago, but this absolutely reeks of PC ******* for the sake of being just that, PC *******.

    And, the very fact that it was revealed on (for the love of God) "The View" makes the anti-white/European guy bias all the more obvious.
