A new Thor #1 launches today, with a woman in the titular role (I promise that's my last sexist pun of the day). Now, there have been alternate heroes starring in Thor, but they were never presented AS Thor until now:
"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."
Well, that sounds like a gimmicky sales stunt, but it's written by Jason Aaron, my current favorite comics writer. Scalped is a must read (and soon to be television series), his Wolverine is the only one to ever capture my interest, and his "Stay Angry" arc in the latter part of his Incredible Hulk run is my single favorite Marvel story this millennium. (Flipping the formula, it centers on the Hulk repeatedly waking up utterly flustered by the devastating situation that that jerk Banner has placed him in.)
So yeah, I'll plunk down cash for an estrogen fueled Thor!
