Marvel Proudly Presents Thor
[Press release] Meet the new female hero who will wield Mjolnir and see an exclusive first image of the unworthy former Thunder God!
Marvel is excited to announce an all-new era for the God of Thunder in brand new series, Thor, written by Jason Aaron complimented with art from Russell Dauterman.
This October, Marvel Comics evolves once again in one of the most shocking and exciting changes ever to shake one of the “big three” of Captain America, Iron Man and Thor. No longer is the classic Thunder God able to hold the mighty hammer, Mjölnir, and a brand new female hero will emerge worthy of the name Thor.
“The inscription on Thor’s hammer reads ‘Whosoever holds this hammer, if HE be worthy, shall possess the power of Thor.’ Well it’s time to update that inscription,” says Marvel editor Wil Moss. “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 boy is my everything. We’ve been together for almost 5 years. A year into our relationship though, he came out as trans and began his personal journey of transitioning. He has been medically transitioning for almost 3 years.
His birthday is coming up on August 30th. This year I wanted to do something super special for him for his birthday. We’ve been engaged for 3 years and are waiting until he’s had top surgery before we set a wedding date. Most people ask why we’ve been engaged for so long and don’t understand why, but it really isn’t that complicated; everyone deserves to feel like a million bucks at their wedding. As cheesy as it sounds, I want him to feel like a million bucks every day of his life. He’s priceless to me, with or without top surgery. Surgery does not define his worth or value to me, but it does to him. And I feel like self worth is something personal that can’t be dictated by others, especially regarding trans people. I’m in no position to tell him that he should just love himself the way he is, and I never would. But I have every right to love him just the way he is, even if his dysphoria is right there butting heads with me.
I’m reaching out to the trans community on tumblr, allies and anyone else willing to help make this birthday his best birthday ever. I’ve created a secret gofundme account to raise money for the top surgery he thinks he will never be able to afford. I’ve requested he stays off tumblr until his birthday, he has no idea why. I can’t think of a better way to wish him a happy birthday than by completely crushing the idea that’s been weighing him down for 3 long years and proving to him that his top surgery is totally possible. If I could pay for this entire surgery myself, I would. I know there’s so many people out there struggling to save up for their own surgeries but we simply could not afford his surgery any other way, at least not for another 3 or 4 years. I want this to happen for him so bad and appreciate any donation no matter how small. Don’t ever think that any act of generosity, no matter how “small”, is not enough. Kindness is so much more valuable than most people realize. Every dollar and reblog counts and every dollar and reblog is greatly appreciated. Please spread the word!
