Marvel announced today that their tentpole superhero, Thor, will be reimagined as a woman.
The announcement, which came this morning on The View, marks a major shift in the Marvel universe. The changes will be permanent as the comic studio seeks to move forward under Disney ownership.
“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!” stated Marvel editor Will Moss via press release.
The debut of the female Thor is scheduled for release this October.
