Man, it’s interesting to see all these people in a huff because Thor being a woman isn’t mythologically accurate. They’re probably super upset about:

  • Thor and Loki being brothers
  • Thor and Heimdall NOT being brothers
  • Heimdall and Sif being siblings 
  • Loki and Odin NOT being brothers
  • Thor being blonde
  • Sif NOT being blonde 
  • Jane Foster
  • Just Jane Foster
  • Thor being allowed to use the Rainbow Bridge 
  • Thor being Frigga’s son 
  • Sleipnir just existing with no explanation
  • Any of Loki’s kids existing with no explanation really 
  • Laufey being Loki’s father
  • Mjolnir’s origin story
  • Mjolnir not being molten lava hot all the time 
  • Mjolnir having a clause to who can wield it

…because those are just a tiny portion of things that are super not mythologically accurate in the Marvel Thor mythos. Man. They must just be in a constant rage.

Oh wait, they’re not? They’re only upset because woman?? WELL THEN.



As someone who’s both a comic geek and a heathen, this is important.  Too many marvel fans don’t realize HOW far removed from Norse mythology Marvel’s Thor actually is.  I’ve actually had people get upset at me because I was talking about actual Norse mythology with someone and it differed from Marvel mythology.  But back to the main point, I love the fact that people think a female Thor is a new character.  This is a character that has been around for ages and been used several times.  Like the OP said, if a female version of Thor is the only thing you see that isn’t mythologically accurate about the Thor comics, then it’s not mythology you’re upset about.


Yesterday’s story of the elderly NYC man who was beaten bloody by police for jaywalking today gets a tragic companion from Philadelphia:

A 16-yr-old African American boy was sexually assaulted by a police officer during a “stop and frisk” pat-down. The assault was committed with such violence that the youth’s testicles were literally ruptured.

Now, Darrin Manning of Philadelphia, Pennsylvania may never be able to father children, according to the doctors who performed surgery on his virtually destroyed testicles.

Darrin was a star basketball player with no criminal history to speak of. He was a straight-A student who never got into any sort of trouble. He was with his teammates heading to a game right after school when he encountered an officer who decided he was “suspicious” and needed to be subjected to local “stop and frisk” procedures.

Though no official reason has been given for the stop and frisk, Darrin and the other (uniformed) members of the basketball team who were stopped suggest it was because they were wearing scarves over their faces to protect against the extreme cold Philadelphia, like much of the country, has suffered this winter.

Darrin was put in handcuffs. When the officer began “frisking” him, they grabbed hold of Darrin’s genitals so hard, pulled and twisted, that the teen’s genitals literally tore off.

“I felt the officer reach and grab my butt. Then the officer grabbed my testicles and squeezed again and pulled down. And that’s when I heard something pop, like I felt it POP,” Manning said.

The incident has left the 16-year-old with felony charges of assault and resisting arrest.

"I’m just grateful that they just didn’t kill him," said Darrin’s mother.
