So Thor is a Woman Now

Considering comic books were popularized when it seemed like nearly the only people interested in them were white males, and as such we got a lot of white male heroes that still exist to this day.

Marvel is attempting to rectify that by changing a few of their heroes. They made Spider-man a black teen, Ms. Marvel a Muslim girl and now Thor? She’s a lady. But not Lady-Thor. Actual Thor, so says writer Jason Aaron.

“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.”

It’s an interesting idea, to simply up and change the gender of a major hero like this, making it canon and not some “alternate bizarro universe” switcharoo. What do you make of this? Cool way to promote gender equality among superheroes? Or should new female superheroes be developed instead?
