Say hello to the new Thor. No longer a he but a she! A damn almighty one at that!
Based on a recent episode of talkshow The View in the US, Marvel Comics has revealed a major shakeup to one of its iconic heroes Thor.
The hammer-wielding Norse God of Thunder will now be a woman in the comic series!
“It’s a huge day in the Marvel Universe,” said one of the show’s host, Whoopi Goldberg.
“Thor, the God of Thunder, he messed up, and he’s no longer worthy to hold that damn hammer of his. For the first time in history, that hammer is being held by a woman. That’s right. Thor is a woman!”
It is perhaps one of the most shocking and exciting revelation to take place in the Marvel Comics.
Wil Moss, who is Marvel editor explained in a press statement that the new Thor will continue Marvel’s proud tradition of strong female characters and she is not just a temporary female substitute but she’s now the one and only Thor.
Don’t go calling her She-Thor, Lady Thor or Thorita though! She is just Thor! Just unlike any Thor we’ve known.
Which perhaps brings the questions of how fast will this translate onto the big screen and will this be the end for Chris Hemsworth’s Thor?
