Marvel unveils new female incarnation of Thor
Marvel comics has announced a new female version of Thor.
The comic book giant announced yesterday (July 15th) that a new female incarnation of the Norse God will make her debut in a new cominc book series from writer Jason Aaron and artist Russell Dauterman in October.
Speaking about the new incarnation, Marvel editor Wil Moss said: "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!"
Writer Aaron then added: "This is not She-Thor. This is not Lady Thor. This is not Thorita. This is Thor. This is the Thor of the Marvel Universe. But it's unlike any Thor we've ever seen before."
Marvel have yet to confirm the identity of the new Thor.
On the big screen, Thor will next be seen in 2015's Avengers: Age Of Ultron, with a third stand-alone Thor movie currently being written.
