Marvel is excited to announce an all-new era for the God of Thunder in brand new series, THOR, written by Jason Aaron (Thor: God of Thunder, Original Sin) complimented with art from Russell Dauterman (Cyclops).
This October, Marvel Comics evolves once again in one of the most shocking and exciting changes ever to shake one of Marvel’s “big three” – Captain American, Iron Man and Thor – Marvel Comics will be introducing an all-new THOR, GOD OF THUNDER. No longer is the classic male hero able to hold the mighty hammer, Mjölnir, a brand new female hero will emerge will who will be worthy of the name THOR. Who is she? Where did she come from and what is her connection to Asgard and the Marvel Universe?
“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!”
#all the dark spaces between them #he is rage and fear and fire #the open wounds of a soldier returned from a too-complete war #neurotic manipulative desperate #and now he faces his ancient enemies #the ones he burned #the ones that died with his civilization his language his history his mother wife daughter graddaughter #now he lives by rules that are nothing more than dust floating in the vacuum #already recycled by the universe to make new shining stars #ashes mixed with their enemies’ #and the beast that he destroyed is alive#he didn’t win #the boy who drank stars #eternity waits at the crossroads of stars #lupus in fabula#the see before them the living proof that he burned away his soul to destroy something that would not die #and he is terrified #but Rose - she heals it #she looks on it without fear and she LOVES IT TO DEATH #and makes a killing machine more afraid than it ever was #(and that in the end is how Nine becomes Ten - burned away by the heat of time devoured by love) (neverfeedthesarcophagi)
I’M ALL FOR GWEN STACY AS THE NEW SPIDER-MAN
I’ve read a lot of different versions of myself - and all of them are true because it’s all opinion, and they’re as accurate as it can ever be. But I don’t think that I’ve been deft at hiding parts of my personality.
give me more about sam wilson
talk to me about how he spent three years unlearning hypervigilance only for it all to come roaring back in one afternoon
tell me about the dreams he has with riley falling, with nat falling, with steve falling, and he swoops to catch him but then steve turns into the winter soldier ripping his wings to shreds, rumlow down below beating the shit out of riley’s body, dead and riddled with bullet holes and still begging for mercy, God, please, Sam, please make him stop, tell me about the times he wakes up with the lurch of freefall in his gut
tell me about the nights he can’t sleep because he’s too busy checking the locks in his apartment over and over again, mechanically running through the same motions, because every time he’s just about to drift off there’s a jolt and the needle skips in his head and he has make another circuit of the room he just has to just one more and he’ll be safe, so he gives up and slumps down on his couch and texts natasha because she’s probably off somewhere halfway around the world and she won’t make anything of it like steve would
they chat for a while until she says im coming over and lo & behold, ten minutes later she’s climbing through his window, she’s pulling some fucking??? power tools ?? out of her purse, it’s three-thirty in the morning and she installs brand-new locks on all the points of entry and his bedroom door, and then she sits with him on the couch and runs her fingers over his head and murmurs pretty things to him in Russian until he dozes off
i thought you were in thailand, sam mumbles, mostly asleep. or norway or, like, mars, you didn’t have to,
yeah, nat smiles, i got back a couple hours ago. the jet lag from mars is a bitch, i’m not even tired, don’t worry
