But seriously, Kate Bishop can be Hawkeye, Carol Danvers can be Captain Marvel, but a woman can’t be Thor?
The rage is for the name or because a woman can’t be worthy to lift the hammer and possess the power of Thor? (now I wonder how it was with lady Loki)
Hawkeye and Captain Marvel are masks, they are super hero identities.
Thor is not his superhero identity. It’s his fucking name. It’s who he is.
People are unhappy Marvel is kicking a character we love, saying he’s worthless, and replacing him with someone else.
It’s like saying Carol Danvers can’t be Carol Danvers if she lost her Kree powers.
So it’s the name. Don’t you think there will be an explanation to that? I mean, the bulky blond guy named Thor is still alive and as far as we know, not changing his name. Also, nobody kicked and screamed when in Avengers future!Thor said he wasn’t worthy anymore, why now?
Yes, a lot of things can go wrong with this… or maybe not, it’s just matter of sit and wait what the fuck happens, and scream and rage at actual stuff instead of assumptions.
No, they actually have straight up said he won’t be named Thor anymore. They’re taking his name and his entire identity away from him.
I have no problem with a story arc where Thor becomes unworthy and has to struggle with himself to reclaim it. I have a huge fucking problem with Marvel saying Thor is not just unworthy, but worthless, and replacing him with a completely different character when Thor isn’t a superhero identity.

Marvel is excited to announce an all-new era for the God of Thunder in brand new series, THOR, written by Jason Aaron (Thor: God of Thunder, Original Sin) complimented with art from Russell Dauterman (Cyclops).
This October, Marvel Comics evolves once again in one of the most shocking and exciting changes ever to shake one of Marvel’s “big three” – Captain American, Iron Man and Thor – Marvel Comics will be introducing an all-new THOR, GOD OF THUNDER. No longer is the classic male hero able to hold the mighty hammer, Mjölnir, a brand new female hero will emerge will who will be worthy of the name THOR. Who is she? Where did she come from and what is her connection to Asgard and the Marvel Universe?
“The inscription on Thor’s hammer reads ‘Whosoever holds this hammer, if HE be worthy, shall possess the power of Thor.’ Well it’s time to update that inscription,” says Marvel editor Wil Moss. “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!”
I am so conflicted over this new Thor announcement.
Do not touch me again.
And so Skithblathnir, most vaunted of the longships of Asgard,
set sail across the cosmic seas with its cargo of enchanted uru
hammers, All-Father's ale and the greatest collection of Thors
ever assembled. And yet...It would not be enough.
