Since the start of the new THOR series, by Jason Aaron and Russell Dauterman, everyone has been wondering who became Thor after Odinson became unworthy to hold Mjolnir. In an interview with New York Times, writer Jason Aaron revealed all.
Warning: THOR #8 is spoiled here. Do NOT scroll down if you want this to remain a mystery! Also, avoid the comment section too because people will be talking about it there as well.
So who is behind the mask? One time girlfriend Dr Jane Foster. Aaron discussed the character in the interview.
“Jane Foster has been part of the Thor comics and the Thor mythology from almost the very beginning...The very act of picking up this hammer, of becoming Thor, is killing her. Where we go from here is the real story.”
Most of the new readers seem to be women and young girls, which is great... You’re seeing more and more comics that appeal to that audience... Usually when I say I write comics for a living, I kind of get blank stares... Now, when I say I write Thor, they say, ‘You’re the lady Thor guy?’ Yup. That’s me.”
See the whole reveal for yourself when THOR #8 hits stores on Wednesday, May 13.
