With Comic Con rapidly approaching, Marvel has announced there is a new superheroine in town! The hammer of the God of Thunder, Thor, will now be held by a woman after the previous male Thor proved himself unworthy. Watch the unveiling of the female Thor on The View in the clip below:
The writer Jason Aaron clarified this new incarnation of Thor with the statement "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."
Naturally Marvel has received both extremely positive feedback for their bold move, as well as criticism. However, Marvel made it clear she's not going anywhere! Editor Wil Moss stood by the decision, stating "This new Thor isn't a temporary substitute- she's now the one and only Thor, and she is worthy!"
P.S. The new Thor is a great costume for Comic-Con!!
