Jane Foster will be the new wielder of Mjolnir in the upcoming Marvel Studios movie, Thor: Love and Thunder. But in the pages of the comics, Jane is done being Thor and is now busy starring in her own new series as Valkyrie. However, could a new woman be about to become the God of Thunder?
Revealed in Marvel’s full November 2019 solicitations on Thursday, it looks like Gwenpool will get her hands on the hammer in Gwenpool Strikes Back #4, by Leah Williams and David Baldeon.
Of course, to take that at face value, one would need to trust the solicits… and as Williams warned us all before this series even launched, that’s not something readers should do. And sure enough, as Gwenpool Strikes Back #1’s solicit teased the unmasking of Spider-Man… it turned out to be a little more complicated than that when the issue hit stores.
In any case, Gwenpool Strikes Back #4 hits stores in November, and Gwenpool will have just two issues left to prove herself worthy of an ongoing series. Check out the solicit below.
GWENPOOL STRIKES BACK #4 (of 5)
LEAH WILLIAMS (W) • DAVID BALDEÓN (A)

Whosoever holds this hammer, if she be awesome, shall possess the power of GWENPOOL! That’s right—Gwen’s got her mitts on Mjolnir and she’s got a list of heads that need hammering! Her mission to make herself known in the Marvel Universe at all costs gallops past all reason!
