From Thor to Thora in one mighty bound

Marvel Comics has unveiled a rather big change for its hammer-wielding Norse superhero Thor. The character will become a woman.

The idea of recasting Thor is apparently to attract more women and girls to superhero comic books. The strapping and bearded Thunder God will now be a buxom blonde with a caped costume.

Thor first appeared in a Marvel adventure in 1962 and has been the star of two blockbuster movies. The new female Thor is due to appear in her first adventure in October and will be illustrated by Russell Dauterman.
