Marvel Releases First Look At Female Thor
Comics Giant Gives Fans New Take On Classic Super Hero
Comics giant Marvel have finally released the first image of the new and improved female Thor.
Marvel editor Wil Moss said it was time to update the inscription on Thor's hammer, which reads 'Whosoever holds this hammer, if HE be worthy, shall possess the power of Thor.'
Marvel has a proud tradition of strong female characters like Captain Marvel, Storm and Black Widow and writer Jason Aaron insists the new Thor is no temporary female substitute.
"This is not She-Thor. This is not Lady Thor. This is not Thorita. This is THOR. This is the THOR of the Marvel Universe. But it’s unlike any Thor we’ve ever seen before."
The comic book, available October 1, will be Marvel’s eighth comic with a female leading role, which they say "aims to speak directly to an audience that long was not the target for Super Hero comic books in America: women and girls."
