I've long hated the way Marvel handles their lead characters in between movies, where they either kill them or replace them until their next movie comes out, but WTF can you even do about it? They obviously think it's the most clever fucking thing ever, so they keep right on doing it and doing it and doing it.

What makes me sad is that what Aaron's done with Young Thor, Thor the Avenger and Old King Thor was effing amazing. It was such a fun read, such a great read.

I don't have anything against this new, female Thor. It's not my company, and it's not my character.

But fuck, Marvel. It's bad enough that DC can't do hardly anything right. It's worse when a company doesn't even recognize when it is doing something really well and they just want to change it, just for the fuck of it.

Now, Thor Odinson doesn't have a book of his own anymore. WTF, Marvel. In a world where Batman has 26 books and Wolverine has 50, Marvel has decided that Thor Odinson doesn't need ONE. WTF.

what I never understood even with Eric holding the hammer that Thor is not a title or a disguise it's the guy's real name Thor is the son of Odin. if you give somebody my clothes my car in my house that doesn't make him me just some guy who has all my stuff. You can put a new guy in the iron man suit & its still iron man but you wouldn't call him Tony Stark

Good point.

If someone (usually of a different race or gender) jacks all of Bianco's stuff, he's not Bianco.

Just because Valkyrie or Angela or whomever gets Mjolnir and wields "the power of Thor", that doesn't actually MAKE her Thor. "Thor" isn't a secret identity, a superhero name or anything like that. That's who he is.

But whatever.

Announcing a new book with "Lady with Thor's powers" doesn't exactly get you that sweet, sweet airtime on "The View"...

Well, the Odinson's not going to stop existing... he's been seen in solicits with a giant axe... maybe there will be 2 books? Or, more likely, he'll be the "Thor" that appears in Avengers?

Wait.

Donald Blake, Jake Olsen, etc. get the ability to turn into Thor and they turn into the blonde dude we know. So, if a lady gets Mjolnir, wouldn't she turn into the blonde dude, too?

And this new Thor isn’t a temporary female substitute – she’s now the one and only Thor, and she is worthy!”


Until fan outcry and poor sales result in a story that brings back man-Thor.

Look, I'm all for diversity, but Thor has never been what I'd call a "legacy" character. His name is Thor. He's supposed to be Thor of Norse legend. Have a woman with Thor's power, fine (Wonder Woman wielded Mjolnir for a spell, "He" inscription and all). But this is like killing Bruce Wayne, replacing him with Helena Bertinelli, and saying "She's the new Bruce Wayne!"

But hey, I get it. Diversify the characters. Add in more prominent female characters. But getting rid of man-Thor, and replacing him with She-Thor sounds like the worst case scenario of stereotypical, misandrous feminists taking over comics (anyone know the episode of "That 70's Show" where Eric tried directing a nativity play, but everyone kept inserting ridiculous ideas? Remember the fantasy sequence where he imagined Donna referring to Jesus as a girl? Yeah...).

The irony is so thick it'd make the people at Slim*Fast shudder. It sounds so ludicrous that I find it hard to believe this is supposed to be an actual announcement.

And why the Hell are comics being discussed on The View, anyway? IT'S THE VIEW!!!

Now taking bets, who'll be back first Male!Thor or Wolverine? Round and around the merry-go-round of gimmick comic casting goes.
