Last month, Jane Foster, Marvel's Goddess of Thunder, finally fell in battle. This week, the Mighty Thor gets a fitting sendoff - but as is so often the case with comics, the end of one story is merely the beginning of another. And some stories of Asgard's fiercest defender are not quite over yet.
Last week, Jane Foster, Marvel's Mighty Thor, fought her final battle. As far as we know, she is no more, and a relaunch of the Thor series that will see the Odinson restored as the God of Thunder is coming.
It's a sad time, because Jane's arrival heralded one of the best continuous runs on a comic in recent Marvel history.
So far, Marvel's Generations series has been thrusting together multiple iterations of its classic characters for some fun adventures. The latest issue, featuring Jane Foster and the Odinson, is much the same -- but also offers an important lesson for each character that lays the groundwork for what's to come for the God of Thunder.
Jane Foster became the Thor when the original Thor's (Odinson) magical hammer Mjolnir deemed him unworthy and chose Jane as its new wielder. While Odinson's been slogging his way through a beer-fuelled existential crisis, Thor's spent her time living up to her new role as Asgard's goddess of thunder.
There are a lot of people connected to the Thor mythology floating around in Marvel comics right now. There's Jane Foster, the current God of Thunder. There's the Odinson, the former Thor. And there's a mysterious new "War Thor", the new wielder of the Ultimate Universe's Mjolnir. And they're about to team up.
In this week's issue of The Mighty Thor, Thor's trusty hammer gets to do something totally strange, and unlike anything we've seen it do in a long time. But while people are freaking out about this strange "new power," it's not really new. It's more of a mix of some weird and wonderful things the hammer's done in the past.
