Thor is now a woman?

http://www.thewrap.com/marvels-thor-...dio-announces/

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.”

I trust Jason Aaron on this one. He's been doing some really cool stuff with Southern Bastards and Original Sin.

He also lives in Prairie Villiage.

A dying medium? Lol, this isn't the early 90's. Comic books have probably never been as popular as they are right now.

And this whole thing is stupid. In an attempt to take a feminist approach, they've actually managed to be pretty sexist. Instead of creating a new, interesting female character, or fleshing out an already existing character that hasn't had much time in the spotlight like Sif, they transform a guy into a woman and just keep calling her by the same name.

What a bullshit publicity stunt.

How many people voicing any concern or discontent about this have ever collected a Thor comic?

I mean, IMO, but who gives a ****?

Comic book movies are very popular. Comic books don't sell nearly as much as they used to though.

Your logic is exactly why I don't think there's any feminist agenda behind this. It's just an attempt to sell some comics, nothing to get all bent out of shape over. And everyone should keep in mind that 1) comics will always revert to a recognizable status quo, and 2) Thor isn't becoming a woman, a woman is going to get Thor's powers from Mjolnir.

Ultimately, this is most likely going to be a story about Thor doing something to become unworthy of wielding Mjolnir and his eventual (and inevitable) redemption. Lady Thor is probably just a spin off of that idea. I mean, un-killing Bucky seemed like a really dumb idea too, and that worked out pretty well. Not to say this will necessarily work as well as that did, but with these characters being used in such a large volume of material over the years there's an element of experimentation that goes with coming up with new stories for them.

well, if the fans have their way, it will be an eventual return to norm.

just as spiderman was "changed" for a year (or 18 months), status quo will be restored.

yes, i read sm. the thing that irritated me the most was the letters to the editor. they primarily only printed letters from fans that applauded the idea. obviously the majority (who remained out of print) won out.

Nothing won out or lost out. Again, these aren't changes, they're storylines. If you really believe that Marvel intended Doc Ock to be Spider-Man forever and only changed it back due to negative fan reaction then you don't understand how comics work at all.

Part of it is the insane price.

When I started collecting comix in 90 it was 75 cents for an issue.

Now it's anywhere from $2.75 - $3.75

That's a dramatic increase...

I think they are closer to 4$ now aren't they? I read them for a few years in the early 90's myself. They were a dollar a piece then, I believe.

I actually picked up a few issues of some Marvel comics a few years ago on a whim. Two things struck me: 1) They are a lot more risqué than I remembered them. 2) How little content there was. Each issue took me about 5 minutes to read. Not a lot of entertainment for the price.

If I were ten years old again, I don't think I would give a crap about reading a superhero comic.
