Series writer Jason Aaron emphasizes, “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 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!”
I am LOVING the new Thor except for one thing: boob-plate armor. ‘It’s Time to Retire “Boob Plate” Armor. Because It Would Kill You‘ according to EMILY ASHER-PERRIN over at Tor. I wholeheartedly agree. Boob-plate armor is a pet peeve of mine so I was delighted to find these lovely pics of armor for women.
However, I love the new Thor and I love the artwork. Just ditch the boob-plate and she’ll get 5 stars from me.
