The New Thor

1D274906372972-today-marvel-comics-140715-2.blocks_desktop_medium

It’s funny the amount of nerd rage on what’s going on about Thor becoming a woman.

Or should say a woman taking Thor’s place.

It’s really a 50/50 shot a lot of people fallen in love with the idea and a lot of people are against it. I’m rather surprised at huge overwhelming amounts of people just being sexist. Like I said before on one of my other post that I’m all for the idea, it’s actually cool and very happy about it. Because my daughter is extremely excited about it. My only gripe is they need to come up with new characters… Why keep dig into the old ones, trying to reboot them.

Marvel did a interview with a Time Magazine recently with Thor’s editor and editor-in-chief of Marvel Comics.
Time magazine asked why they would makes Thor a woman rather than just creating all the character.?? Marvels response was rather interesting, they said:

“We can’t give away all the story details now obviously, but once the story is out there, it becomes clear why there’s a new female Thor. It’s not about filling a certain quota. It’s about providing a shot in the arm to the Thor titles definitely, but it’s something that’s a natural part of where this story and the Thor title is going”

Now Thor has been a different style of characters at many of points through our his history. He has been a frog, he has also been a horse faced alien.

Just to name a few… Now with Marvel making Thor into a woman has caused this overabundance of bickering back and forth between comic world.
I’ll post a link to the actual interview down below so you can read it for yourself.
As time goes on and the more I think about it.. I’m all for it. Showing my little girl the pictures of the new Thor is gonna look like and how she’s going to be. She literally looked at me and asked, “really?”
“Yes.” I said.  She literally jumped up and said, “yes!” with a fist pump. Then she asked if she was going to be made it into a movie. I told her baby steps, let the character get a established first then we’ll see. :)

PETITION TO THE FCC

“Comcast, the biggest cable and Internet provider, is trying to take over its chief rival Time Warner.  This would give Comcast a near-monopoly, and a presence in every major media market in the country.

With almost no competition, a merged Comcast-Time Warner would have no reason to keep prices low, or offer consumers more choices, much less improve its infrastructure. Millions of rural customers who have been waiting for decades for broadband internet access would likely have to keep on waiting.

We already deserve much better than we’re getting from telecom giants. America lags far behind the rest of the developed world in Internet service, speed and affordability. The profit-greedy telecom industry has opposed infrastructure improvement at every opportunity.

If two of the worst and most incompetent cable providers consolidate their power, America’s digital divide will grow as we all fall farther and farther behind the rest of the world.

Moreover, allowing only a handful of giant corporations to be the gatekeepers for almost all media and Internet serviceswould be disastrous for privacy, freedom of speech, and what’s left of an open Internet. 

But the Federal Communications Commission can stop the merger.  Please let the the FCC know that that’s what we need it to do.

PETITION TO THE FCC:  Stand up to the telecom behemoths and protect consumers — just like you’re supposed to.  Block the Comcast-Time Warner merger now.”

So just recently Entertainment Weekly just released photos from the NEW Avengers age of Ultron! I guess currently it is due to come out May 1st 2015, provided everything runs smoothly. They also released some behind-the-scenes footage as well. From the looks of things you have some pictures of the Scarlet Witch and Quicksilver. Also the rumor has it Avengers age of Ultron is going to have War Machine, as well as Antoine Triplett from the Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D show. From the looks of things Peggy Carter is going to be in it is well.
