Thor is now a girl, what are your thoughts?

Recommended Posts

This.

 

 

This morning on ABC's The View Marvel announced that Thor, Marvel's God of Thunder, will be a woman in the comics. The news is a major shift in Marvel's continuity, since Thor is one of the oldest superheroes in the Marvel universe. The new storyline will launch this October, penned by series writer Jason Aaron.

What do you think of this? 

Good? Bad? Pointless? Fake?

I guess this will go the same as in MMO's... Male armour is super thick and protective, female armour... 'What armour?'

 

Why would they do this?

Sounds like it's just going to be one storyline, and not permanent: like Deadpool kills the Marvel Universe.

 

It's cool with the gender switch though. More heroines for everyone.

I don't think it's either good or bad, but this and all the other recent Marvel Comics changes seem pointless to me.

Once a month, this Thor's villains may want to stay away from her...

I'm all for equality between men, women, black, white, gay, and straight and anything in between, but this is stupid.

 

Thor is one of the oldest Marvel characters and one of the most loved, to change him and his entire storyline just to bring in a certain group is as pointless as Wonder Woman turning into a man. You've gotta understand, building a new female from the ground up attracts more people then changing a working formula on a male character, which WILL drive people away.

I think it's kinda weird, but cool at the same time. So does this mean a girly Thor now? xD

This. Someone probably complained about there being no real strong woman in the Avengers, so this was their best idea.

 

Also, Thor is a demigod from Norse mythology. He existed before Marvel. There's artistic liberty, and then there's historical revisionism.
