Gray Man's Landing

Just a guy who likes fantasy/sci-fi stuff and rants about movies and videogames.

Just to clarify 

OK well that still doesn’t clarify why Marvel made a big song and dance about the female character literally being Thor.

glad its clarified though

Yeah, I’m still pretty confused as to how the woman that has Thor’s powers isn’t a female Thor, but is still called Thor. Is it a title now or something? *scratches head*

As far as I’m aware, Mjolnir has all the powers of lightning, flight, etc. and was made before Thor the Asgardian was born. Once he reached a certain age, he earned the ability to weild Mjolnir, thus gaining the abilities to access those powers and gaining the title God of Thunder. I’m not entirely sure, but it’s possible that Thor is also a title. I’m basing this assumption (and it is an assumption because I’m not as well read on this subject as I’d like to be) on the fact that other people and beings in the Marvel comics have been worthy of wielding Mjolnir and went by the title of Thor as well. So yes, Thor is most likely both a name and a title and the “Whosoever holds this hammer, if he be worthy, shall possess the power of Thor” part was an additional spell added to Mjolnir. In the Thor movie, I assume the “if he be worthy” part was said by Odin because it might not have occurred to him that there would be female warriors on Midgard or that there wouldn’t be a chance of a worthy female on Midgard (it is mentioned that Sif had to fight against prejudice to get where she was, implying that there might be strong beliefs that women could not fight as well as men ((that’s just my take, feel free to point out any flaws as it’s been awhile since I last saw the movie)) ). Plus the spell was intended to give Thor a kick in the ass in order to become smarter and more aware of the consequences of his actions; Odin most likely did not intend for anyone other than Thor to wield Mjolnir and probably would have gone to Midgard to pick it up on the off chance that someone there would be able to use such a powerful weapon.
Feel free to tell me if I have something wrong as I haven’t read any Thor comic books (I mostly read X-Men) and have only seen the Thor movies and gained a few more tidbits of knowledge from various people I follow who post about Thor and other Marvel characters.

Thanks! I’m still kinda confused about it, but that helps clear some of it up.
