Marvel has revealed the cover to Thor: God of Thunder #3, featuring a Thor that is rumored to be completely free of body hair.
Fans worried that comic companies might be regressing into the nineties breathed a sigh of relief today, as a newly revealed cover to Marvel's Thor: God of Thunder #3 shows a refreshingly modern take on the Thunder God. Contrary to a recently revealed Captain America image which showed the Star Spangled Avenger in full nineties mullet glory, the God of Thunder cover shows a metrosexual Thor that knows the value of a good grooming. There is absolutely no hair on the Thunderer's underarm - not even stubble - which, besides leading the reader to question whether other areas are also "manscaped" - is a firm embracing of modern fashion sense, eschewing the rough, hyper-masculine imagery of a bearded Thor that dominated the 1990s for a new, sensitive Thunder God that takes pride in the cherub-like smoothness of his blemishless skin.
"I say thee Nay! The Son of Odin doth love the ladies!" claimed Thor when we reached out to him for comment on the new look. "'Tis surely a misprint, or mayhap photoshop trickery most foul that doth depict the Mighty Thor with nary a hair beneath his muscled arm! Thor swears 'pon Asgard's fabled Rainbow Bridge... no wait, 'pon the stiff, hard wood of the World Tree... wait a minute... 'pon Mjornir itself, mine trusty hammer which I doth use to pound away at my... Away with thee, human! This interview 'tis over!"
Thor: God of Thunder #3, from Jason Aaron and Esad Ribic, will be in stores in December, which, now that we think about it, is really not a great month for sleeveless armor anyway.
