Today’s Mighty Thor #20 has Thor Odinson discover who has been wielding Mjolnir of late, after he was made Unworthy. And that it was his ex-girlfriend Jane Foster who had been judged worthy and was the new Mighty Thor.
Jane Foster, was originally nurse for Dr. Donald Blake, then a love triangle interest for him and his superhero identity of Thor,. After falling foul of Odin, she was stripped of her memory of Thor. She would then meet and later marry Dr. Keith Kincaid, while Thor reunited with Sif.
Foster would later divorce Kincaid and open a medical centre with Blake. But her relationship with Kincaid, even after a memory wipe, for some fans made her “unworthy” of Thor. Which may have partially been behind the decision to actually make her Thor.
But in today’s Mighty Thor, as Thor Odinson learns a secret, and we all learn exactly who the new War Thor is (the cover may help), we learn that he as also keeping something from us. That Thor cheated.
Because while he and Jane Foster was an item, sticking his hammer where it didn’t belong. “Dalliances” as he puts it. Plural. I mean, okay, he’s a Norse God, there are different rules, but given how people have turned on Marvel for Captain America being revealed to be a sleeper Hydra agent, and while they may have tolerance for Hercules putting it around on anyone that moves regardless of gender, Thor doing it Norse fashion may be more than Avengers fans can take.
The Mighty Thor #20 by Jason Aaron, Russell Dauterman, Matthew Wilson, Valerie Schiti and Veronica Gandini is published today by Marvel Comics.
