“Thoughts on the New Thor: Legacy, Characterization and a Possible New Reboot”

At The Comics Professor, Mark D. White writes about the new Thor and reader reaction. “Recently it was announced—on The View, of all places—that the next person found worthy to wield the power of Thor in the Marvel Universe would be a woman, after the current Thor is judged unworthy. (See here for the best write-up I’ve found, including an interview with writer Jason Aaron and EIC Axel Alonso.)

After following the news and conversation all that day, I want to offer a few random thoughts.”
