Marvel really came down with the hammer today when the top graphic novel brand announced that it is changing one of its beloved Thor character to be, from this moment onward, a female Thor. That being said, any comic book published here on out will feature a woman as Thor rather than a man.

Jack Kirkby created the iconic god of thunder character back in 1962. At that time many of the comic book superheroes were men with very little female influence. With the news of a female Thor set to take over the god of thunder’s mighty position, many were taken by surprise. Celebrity talk show host Whoopie Goldberg was quoted saying on The View that “[Thor] is no longer worthy to hold that damn hammer of his. And for the first time in HISTORY that hammer is being held BY A WOMAN.” It’ll be exciting to see how the storyline changes with a female at the head of the comic book empire.
