With the collaboration of many great artists, comics writer Jason Aaron took charge of Marvel’s Thor comics in 2012 and stayed there long enough to complete a seven-year divine drama saga. The first thing he did was introduce the character of Gorr the God Butcher, an anti-god alien determined to kill all the gods in the universe, to save mortals from believing in them. Thor: Love and Thunder As played by Christian Bale.

But two years later, Aaron made a strong return to Thor’s entire cosmology. Thor lost a mental battle with Gorr’s legacy and realized in his heart that the gods were not worthy of mortal worship – and thus was unable to lift Mjolnir. Although it’s of interest to comic book fans, Thor lost his ability to lift the hammer after Nick Fury whispered something mysterious in his ear. Aaron and his collaborators kept the secret of Thor’s loss of power for three years.

However, Aaron also introduced a new Mjolnir wielder, a mysterious helmeted woman who refers to herself only as Thor. Aaron and Thor artist Russell Dauterman was very attached to the idea. Aaron told Comic Book Resources in 2014, “You get this book and it says ‘Thor’ on the cover with a new female version of Thor. She’s not Thorika. She is Thor. This is the new Thor.”

Like the source of Odinson’s unworthiness, Thor’s true identity has remained an encouraging secret, and it also helps that the name “Thor” truly stays with him. If they couldn’t call him “Lady Thor” and he had no secret identity, fans had to call him Thor. Since Thor’s book proved to be more successful than Aaron’s first book in 2012, the man named Thor began to be called “Odinson”. Thor Sherry. Finally, seven months after debut, Aaron and Russell Dauterman revealed the truth.

Thor, Dr. Jane Foster. Aaron’s saga, Thor, was pretty light on including Jane until she became Thor—early in the series, it was revealed that Jane had been diagnosed with an aggressive cancer and, despite Thor’s insistence, decided to rely on drugs rather than type for treatment. . magic tools, which often require an unexpected cost. The revelation that he was Thor showed that this was all sorts of misdirection: part setup, partly what Jane didn’t want from a magic cure for cancers—exactly.

Jane thought she was worthy, and when she could avoid suffering as a superhero, she couldn’t stand still. But each time she changed from goddess to mortal, she would transform into her body’s “default” state, erasing the progress made during her cancer treatments. Sir Thor was saving the others, but this one was killing him. Yet he continued until the end of Aaron’s tenure at Thor, War of the Realmscontained the four Thors – Thor Odinson, his two timeless versions and Jane-as-Thor – the God Butcher, Gorr’s long lost weapon, All-Black faced off against Malekith, the dark elven warrior wielding the Necrosword . .

How much of that – Thor’s humiliation, Jane’s cancer, Gorr’s slaughter – will transform. Thor: Love and Thunder This remains to be seen from the first trailer. Gorr isn’t even visible inside, and he’s a strange gray alien, almost naked, with tentacles on his head, so, we’d notice.

Wait, but how did Mjolnir come back after Hela broke him in Thor: Ragnarok?

Oh please, if I had a penny for every time Mjolnir was destroyed. Jane threw him into the sun and told Aaron to stay there during his run. there are a million ways Thor: Love and Thunder she can wear this special Humpty Dumpty again, trust me.

Ever since Natalie Portman strode onto the stage of San Diego Comic-Con 2019 holding aloft the hammer of Thor, Marvel fans have been waiting to see her return to the role of Jane Foster, but this time as Thor. With the release of the first teaser trailer for Thor: Love and Thunder, they’ll have their chance. But anyone else might be wondering: Since when does Jane Foster possess the power of Thor?
The answer is: Since 2014’s Thor #1, in which a mysterious new superheroine appeared in the Marvel Universe, with Mjolnir in her mighty hand. Come with us on a quick trip through the story of Jane Foster’s turn as the god of thunder.
Whosoever holds this hammer, if they be worthy, shall possess the power of Thor

With the collaboration of many great artists, comics writer Jason Aaron took the helm of Marvel’s Thor comics in 2012, and stayed there long enough to complete a seven-year epic of godly drama. The very first thing he did was introduce the character of Gorr the God Butcher, an antitheist alien bent on killing every god in the universe in order to free mortals from believing in them, who’ll appear in Thor: Love and Thunder as played by Christian Bale.
But two years into his run, Aaron gave the whole Thor cosmology a mighty twist. Thor lost a mental struggle with the legacy of Gorr, and realized in his heart that gods were not worthy of mortal adoration — and thus, he became incapable of lifting Mjolnir. Although, as far as comics fans knew, Thor lost the ability to lift his hammer after Nick Fury whispered something mysterious in his ear. Aaron and his collaborators kept the secret of Thor’s depowerment for three years.
But Aaron also introduced a new wielder of Mjolnir, a mysterious helmed woman who referred to herself only as Thor. Aaron and Thor artist Russell Dauterman committed hard to that idea. “You pick up this book and it just says ‘Thor’ on the cover, which features a new female version of Thor,” Aaron told Comic Book Resources in 2014. “It’s pretty much telling you she’s not She-Thor or Lady Thor. She’s not Thorika. She is Thor. This is the new Thor.”
Just like the source of Odinson’s unworthiness, Thor’s true identity remained a tantalizing secret, and also helped to make the “Thor” name truly stick to her. If they couldn’t call her “Lady Thor,” and she didn’t have a secret identity, fans simply had to call her Thor. The guy Thor started going by “Odinson,” as Thor’s book proved more successful than even Aaron’s first 2012 Thor series. Finally, seven months after her debut, Aaron and Russell Dauterman revealed the truth.
Thor was Dr. Jane Foster. Until she became Thor, Aaron’s Thor epic had been pretty light on involving Jane — early in the series, it was revealed that Jane had been diagnosed with an aggressive cancer, and despite Thor’s urgings, decided to rely on medicine for treatment rather than the kind of magical means that often require an unexpected cost. The reveal that she was Thor showed that all that was half misdirection: half set-up, half exactly-the-thing-Jane-hadn’t-wanted-from-magical-cancer-cures.

Jane had found herself worthy, and couldn’t stand by when she could prevent suffering as a superhero. But, every time she transformed back from goddess to mortal, she transformed into her body’s “default” state, erasing the progress made during her cancer treatments. Being Thor was saving others, but it was killing her. Still, she kept at it, all the way up through the finale of Aaron’s Thor tenure, War of the Realms, which featured four Thors — Thor Odinson, two other versions of him brought out of time, and Jane-as-Thor — squaring off against the dark elf warlord Malekith wielding the long-lost weapon of Gorr the God Butcher, All-Black, the Necrosword.
How much of any of this — Thor’s unworthiness, Jane’s cancer, Gorr’s butchery — will make it into Thor: Love and Thunder remains to be seen from this first teaser trailer. Gorr doesn’t even appear in it, and he’s a weird, almost-naked grey alien with tentacles on his head, so, like, we would have noticed.
Wait, but how did Mjolnir come back after Hela broke it in Thor: Ragnarok?
Oh please, if I had a dime for every time Mjolnir got destroyed. Jane herself threw it into the center of the sun and told it to stay there during Aaron’s run. There are a million ways that Thor: Love and Thunder could put this particular Humpty Dumpty back together again, trust me.
