Marvel shocked the comics world a while back by announcing a major change to its God of Thunder. The Asgardian God of Thunder’s role will, in the near future, be filled by a mysterious woman, as the Odinson has found himself suddenly unworthy to lift the hammer. We’ve now got a glimpse of the female Thor in action, as well as a look at just what the Odinson will be doing since he’s not Thor no more.
In classic Marvel fashion, the House of Ideas hasn’t spilled all of the beans with the sneak peek granted to Newsarama this week. We get to see some variant covers of the new Thor in action, and we get a glimpse of a shadowy female picking up Thor’s hammer, Mjolnir, but little more. There is one juicy bit that is revealed by the first look at Thor #1, though: we can definitely see the inscription on Mjolnir change to reflect the new status quo.
