It was announced this morning that in October, Marvel Comics will debut a new Thor series with a female God of Thunder. The following statement was released by Marvel:
The series will be written by Jason Aaron and the artwork will be done by Russell Dauterman.
I'm usually open-minded about a lot of the changes that get made with comic characters and movie characters and the like. This seems like a huge move and I'm not sure how well it's going to work out for Marvel. They are trying something different, I suppose and we'll see how it all shakes out. I hope they don't just decide to retcon it within the next five years though.
How do you guys feel about this HUGE change to a major player in the Marvel Universe? Do you think this is in some way a response to the "holy trinity" in the Justice League making Marvel's own trinity with Cap, Iron Man, and Thor? What does this mean for the film universe?
