Marvel Proudly Presents Thor

[Press release] Meet the new female hero who will wield Mjolnir and see an exclusive first image of the unworthy former Thunder God!

Marvel is excited to announce an all-new era for the God of Thunder in brand new series, Thor, written by Jason Aaron complimented with art from Russell Dauterman.

This October, Marvel Comics evolves once again in one of the most shocking and exciting changes ever to shake one of the “big three” of Captain America, Iron Man and Thor. No longer is the classic Thunder God able to hold the mighty hammer, Mjölnir, and a brand new female hero will emerge worthy of the name Thor.

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!”

Happy Birthday Stan Lee!!!  

comicsforever: Stan “The Man” Lee is turning 90 today. The longtime writer, publisher, editor and cheerleader for Marvel Comics has lived long enough to see their creations leap from the printed page to the most diverse media, from movies to videogames. Stan has left us a legacy more than spectacular, full of vivid, rich and colorful characters. Thanks so much for everything Stan! Excelsior!
