The artist formerly known as the God of Thunder is looking a little worse for wear.
IGN has a first look at an image of Thor, or whatever he will be called once he is replaced by a woman who will reportedly take not only his job and his hammer, but also his name, though past evidence suggests she will probably be paid 23% less Asgardian dollars in compensation. The announcement of Thor's replacement was hard on many fans, who act like they've never read a comic book before, where this sort of thing happens on a semi-regular basis, as well as xenophobes, racists, homophobes, and misogynists, who hate it whenever a minority character is introduced in comics. In any case, it looks like it will be even more difficult for Thor, who appears unwashed, unshaven, and sporting a metal arm like the future version of himself from Jason Aaron's universally overrated Thor God of Thunder comic book.
Details of what Thor does to become unworthy to wield his hammer, the identity of the woman who replaces him, and how many months it will take before it's all undone (hint: before the next Avengers movie comes out) are unknown at this time, but in an interview with Time Magazine this morning, Jason Aaron claimed that it would come naturally in the story, adding, "It’s not like we threw a dart at a board and said we’re going to change this character and make it a female." While that is somewhat ironic because we're convinced that's actually exactly how Marvel and DC come up with most of their gimmicky publishing strategies, we're sure more of those aforementioned details will be revealed in self-aggrandizing interviews with mainstream press outlets in the coming months and things will be more clear. Stay tuned.
