Marvel Comics announced on the View today (of all places, ugh) that they are releasing a new Thor comic series where the Thor we know now has been deemed unworthy of his mighty hammer, and its power passes to a female hero.
It is unknown at this time if it will be another Asgardian, such as Lady Sif, Thor Girl, or a human, like Jane Foster, or if this story will be worked into the next movie sequel, Thor 3.
Know what the ladies of the View commented on? Her boobs. Way to advance womens' portrayal in media ladies, way to go.... Grrrrrrr!!!!

Yeah, I had heard Jenny McCarthy immediately brought up the boobs, but she's never been particularly known for advancing the cause of ladyhumans. Her failures in general fail to faze me.

Ms. McCarthy is a known comic book aficionado and medical expert. Along with her fellow science bashing cohosts, she is a beacon of wisdom! This seems like the perfect venue to discuss the ramifications of female super heroes in geek culture.

This is a totally new character that I have seen in comics and it is the best part of the creativity to see new characters. I am sure that you are having more creative ideas to make these comics more exciting.
