Earlier today Marvel announced that as of this October we will see a major change in the Marvel Universe. For yet unknown reasons the classic Thunder God we all know will no longer be able to hold the mighty hammer, Mjölnir, and a brand new female hero will take his place.
“The inscription on Thor’s hammer reads ‘Whosoever holds this hammer, if HE be worthy, shall possess the power of Thor.’ Well it’s time to update that inscription,” says Marvel editor Wil Moss. “The new Thor continues Marvel’s proud tradition of strong female characters like Captain Marvel, Storm, Black Widow and more. And this new Thor isn’t a temporary female substitute – she’s now the one and only Thor, and she is worthy!” And series writer Jason Aaron added “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.”
Looks like an exciting time ahead for the Marvel Universe. What do you think of this massive change for one of the Marvel Big Three? Sound out in the comments section below.
