Looks interesting, I never knew much about the Thor mythos so should be a good jumping on point perhaps.

I like the new logo but that second variant cover looks bad particularly in the face area. On the upside the interiors look great.

I wonder what else it says on that hammer? *gets out a magnifying glass* Uh, let's see here, "Loki was here, Thor is a loser", "Made by Dwarven Blacksmith Inc.", and "For a good time, call 102-1964". :P

Be funny if it's Enchantress lol.

Though I have no idea what she's currently doing or at, so if that's not possible, then I simply didn't know. An if so, then just out of curiosity (since again I don't know) what is she up to currently?

Pretty sure, people said the same thing at first about Superior Spiderman, but given time people's opinions changed and started getting some more like too it. Not saying people just turned heel an went all psycho obsessive with it, just that negative opinion lessened an became more favorable, despite initial negative opinions of the series and character change.

@micah: I was just saying that i will not buy it, if you will and other people :).

Honestly in the first issues it will sell with no problems, but at a long range i don't see a Thor Book survive without the Thor fans, just my opinion!

Why not give it a try??? If you don't like Female Thor, at least Male Thor looks like he'll still be part of the series. At the very least this new take on Male Thor looks very interesting and promising. You know the status quo will eventually come back, why not enjoy this new, different perspective??????? You may like it :)

I've always been confused by Thor. Is he not the actual Thor: the God of Thunder? I always wonder because his hammer says that "whoever be worthy shall possess the power of Thor", so shouldn't he just always have the power? Or does he just share the name of the deity also called Thor? Is Thor just a position of godly power that gets handed down?

@micah: the problem it's not because she is female (i love Angela in Asgard), it's call her Thor it's the character (Odinson) birth name, he is unworthy but he still is Thor, it's his name!!! Pick mjolnir don't makes you Thor only gives you his power, marvel put the publicity above the character history in the comics, Beta Ray Bill never call himself Thor!!! How he becomes unworthy doesn't help either, seems very forced to make the replacement, and wasn't in his book was in a event that is irrelevant to Thor. (Original Sin), As a big Thor fan i think marvel is disrespecting my favorite character and the only reason that i read comics, so the only thing that i can do is stop reading Thor until the status quo come back.

If others like this idea Cool we can't always agree. :)

i read that too. didnt notice that before. Do you think Thor is not really Thor? Maybe Loki wasnt the only one that was adopted, eh?
