I telling ya Marvel turning it up!!! What has to be another head turner Marvel will be making Thor a woman. That is right. Just like many new changes they are taking the iconic god of thunder into a strong woman. Now I know most of the comic book geeks are either happy or turned on right about now. Here is more info on the news from Variety News Blog:
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, Marvel Comics said in making the announcement. 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,” said 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. The female Thor is the eighth title to feature a lead female protagonist and is aimed at women and girls whom comicbook publishers are not actively courting.
I think this will be very interesting to see how things go from here. I mean I don’t follow the god of thunder that much but it has peeked my interest now. Color me intrigued! As you know Carib Gamer will be going to the Fan Expo in canada very soon. So we will be bringing you all the latest news from Marvel once we touch down!
