Marvel FanGirls Unite!

Thor god of thunder Mjolnir 

If you haven't already heard, I am ecstatic to bring this news to you that MARVEL ARE INTRODUCING THE FIRST FEMALE THOR IN A NEW COMIC BOOK SERIES.

They introduced this new announcement by turning to ABC's "The View" by revealing a new female Thor in a new comic book series. Written by Jason Aaron and with detailed art by Russell Dauterman, it'll be published in October.

"No longer is the classic male hero able to hold the mighty hammer, Mjönir, a brand new female hero will emerge who will be worthy of the name Thor." Marvel said when making the statement.

"The inscription on Thor's hammer read 'Whosoever holds this hammer, if HE be worth, shall possess the power of Thor.' Well it's time to update that inscription," said Wil Moss, the Marvel editor. "The new Thor continues Marvel's proud tradition of strong female characters like Captain Marvel, Storm, Black Widow and more. And this new Thor isn't a temporary female substitute - she's now the one and only Thor, and she is worthy."

This is absolutely exciting news. This new female character, Thor, is said to be the 8th title to feature a leading female character, this will aim at women and girls more so as they weren't the target audience for such a long time.. female Thor joins the growing list of female-centric titles that allows new readers to join the Marvel world of superheroes.

As a genuine female Marvel fan myself, this is great news and I cannot wait to see it published and enticing women around the world to join in. It is about time women are recognised as strong human beings and not weak, feeble side characters or worse, damsels in distress/boring love interests.

I hope you are thrilled with this as much as I am so leave your comments below.

Who run the world? GIRLS!

Thankyou for reading.
