    ...that has an ongoing title that has lasted as long as her. ALL the female superheroes that's not derived from an existing established male character has not lasted no more than a couple of dozen issues. Marvel seem to not able to build an original heroine to hold her own title. They always copied them like She-Hulk, Ms. Marvel/Captain Marvel, Spidergirl, and now a new version of Thor Girl. Try as they may, female buyers are far and few compare to their male counterparts. This new Thor title will last as long the gimmick of finding out why Thor lost his worthiness continue to the interest of the fans. If it drags on, fans will drop off fast. It might even drop off sooner!


As long as WW? That is not a far standard as there are some that were not created that long ago. Witchblade has been going for quite a while. And some indie sort of books.

Really, I count some of the ones you mentioned successful. They have become more than rip offs, the Thor one is sort of new. Also, female fans have become more interested in comics recently. I do not have hard numbers but have friends that started collecting comics after the Marvel movies. The climate is a bit different now than it has been in the past.

    I want to see how it comes out, but the way they're writing the real Thor is just awful. He loses his hammer. He becomes a basket case. He gets rid of his uniform. He dresses like a homeless person. He loses his hygiene. His powers diminished knowing the fact that throughout the history of Thor's character that we've been led to believe, his powers of the elements was always his and NOT Mjolnir. Now, Thor loses his name and everyone calls him "Odinson??" What kind of nutty mentality is that? One of my favorite possession is my pet Beagle. He's part of our family. He's priceless and we wouldn't give or sell him for any price! Now, if he's stolen from us, I would be so heartbroken, I would dress like a homeless person, and instead of RE-man, I would rather be called "(my dad's name)-SON". You get what I'm saying.

    Pleaseeeeee, give "Odinson" a little more self respect! At least make him look like the Thor we know and have him use his BRAIN to solve this mystery of him losing his worthiness! As this female Thor runs around with Mjolnir, I don't mind buying and reading the book if the REAL Thor wasn't a dumbass and instead pull his head together and find help from friends that can solve this problem. Dr. Strange would be perfect because he helped repair Mjolnir with most of the ODINpower.
