Howdy, True Believers!
Uh-oh! You had to know this character was coming (and if not, well, SURPRISE!). Today, in conjunction with our desire to bring you new and updated datafiles of Marvel NOW 2015’s leading characters, we present Thor, the Goddess of Thunder!
As I mentioned before in our post about Odinson, there was probably no more controversial change to Marvel’s canon this past year than the decision to make Thor a woman. Likewise, there was probably no bigger mystery this past year than the question of who is the new Thor? Well, that mystery was solved in issue #8 of Thor and it was revealed that the new Thor was none other than….
Jane Foster. Although, I (probably like many other readers) was certain that the new Thor was going to turn out to be S.H.I.E.L.D. Agent Roz Solomon. But, alas, we took the carefully-laid and distracting bait.
Marvel has made one thing very clear of this new character. She is not Lady Thor. She is not Thorette. She is Thor, and she cares not for your petty quibbles about her gender or her insufficiency. She’s just here to bring the thunder.
Below is our take on the new Goddess of Thunder. May she strike fear into the hearts of villains at your table.
Enjoy and excelsior!
