The power of Thor
Finally, at long last we get to see what happened to make Thor unworthy. Marvel has been dangling this for a few years now, and it looks like we’re not only going to hear what that whisper entailed, but also maybe (possibly) see a return to form for the thunder god.
Don’t get me wrong, I thought the Jane Foster Thor shook things up nicely for the book. Thing is though, this is the world of comics, and there’s just no way that Thor wouldn’t eventually step back into… well, his shoes. He kind of is the Norse thunder god after all.
What will become of Foster when that happens is a bit of a mystery. The current version of the character has proven to be pretty popular with fans however. So with that in mind, I’m pretty sure she’s not going to be fading away. After all, when Eric Masterson was all done with his stint wielding the hammer back in the ’90s, he went on to become Thunderstrike- kind of a ‘Thor lite’. Could be there’s something similar on the horizon.
