What do you think? I just think it odd. Thor is a man, and Thor is Thor. It's not like someone replacing Tony Stark as Iron Man. Anyone that picks up Thor's Hammer shouldn't be Thor, they should be whoever they are, and it should become their hammer. The hammer's name isn't Thor's Hammer, anyway, it's Mjolnir.

 

I don't mind if Thor has a sex change, or if a woman that Mjolnir chooses is named Thor, but if a woman named something like Hannah is now Thor because she now has Mjolnir, that's just confusing. She should be, "The Mighty Hannah", and not, "The Mighty Thor". And Mjolnir would no longer be referred to as "Thor's Hammer", but "Hannah's Hammer"

Thor is only a dude! You cannot fundamentally change the character that for generations has been the same. Create a new character and wrap the story line around that.

I figure if there is a (Christian) God it must be a woman...since nothing he(she) does/did makes any sense. :P

I only skimmed the article, but dafuq is this shiiit:

 

"There’s only one Thor in the Marvel Universe. The character we know as Thor will not refer to himself as Thor anymore."

 

Was he not given the name Thor at birth by his father (Odin)??!? I'm pretty sure Baby Thor didn't wield Mjolnir and he was still called Thor!
