I actually liked the concept in vol.2 by Jurgens.AS a cosmic entity that came to asgard and wanted to be a noble heroine that really looked up to Thor.It was part of her life cycle that ended up with her becoming the Designate until the sudden end of Jurgens run left her re-set as Thor Girl.I havent read more than a couple of issues with her since then and I think it was actually a skrull in those.Now that she has ascended again that should be the end of Thor Girl which is fine by me.
Yeah, I found the idea of Tarene / the Designate pretty good. Can't stand Thor Girl though. When you think of Brunhilda, Hildergarde, Sif, Amora etc. "Thor Girl" doesn't really do it
