The female version of Thor first revealed in August will make her video game debut later this month, when Marvel Puzzle Quest releases a new update.

Thor: Goddess of Thunder will become a legendary, 4-star character reward for the game's seventh season on October 17. It's the first time she'll be seen in any video game, and her appearance comes on the heels of Wednesday's release of Thor #1, the first comic in which Thor is a woman. D3Publisher didn't share what Thor would look like in the game, but did pass along the character art below.

This month is a significant one for the game, as October 3 marks the one-year anniversary of Marvel Puzzle Quest's release. D3Publisher will be doing a number of other things to celebrate, such as adding Devil Dinosaur as a playable character (through an Anniversary Pack and a daily reward for Day 365 players). New players to the game who download it between now and October 18 will get a helping hand in the form of bonus Iso-8, an in-game currency.

Additionally, in the lead up to the release of this version of Thor in the game, there will be special in-game events, though no specifics were provided.

Marvel Puzzle Quest is a free-to-play game available now on PC, iOS, and Android.

I would like if Marvel can take this opportunity to overhaul Thor(male) into a bit of a new character and just keep her in his place. I don't really follow him closely and i'm not sure what exactly has led to him losing his hammer but now might be the time for him to shed his title and identity, which he pretty much only has through his Father being the creator of the hammer. Maybe now he can create his own weapons and power and in the process distance himself from Odin / Asguard. I'll assume the entire basis of him being "worthy" of wielding Mjlnir to begin with is a parameter set by Odin and thus depends on Odin's perception of "worthiness". Something Thor himself or anyone else doesn't necessarily have to agree with and thus could make for an interesting plot device to get Thor "out of his Father's house" and "on his own" figuratively speaking.


Of course i seriously doubt any of that will happen. More than likely this setup will be very temporary. This new character will get a new costume, name and similar hammer just like Beta Ray Bill and Thor will be right back in the spot anyway. I suspect Marvel will go with what they deem to be the least risk sales wise.

I don't see any issue with them introducing a female with his powers. It has happened before with other characters and i'm not going to suddenly complain now because they opted for a female. Although i will say i dislike her costume design. Looks too similar to the original Thor's costume. Should have done something different with her. I'd also prefer that she came on board with some of her own abilities. Say if she was a mutant for example or something like that, instead of only just Thor's powers.


I dislike most of the gender related garbage going on recently but this is definitely nothing to be concerned about.

<< LINK REMOVED >> Its just wierd. If they wanted to make a female character of this kind, why not try to introduce a new concept instead changing a old one?

Well, they do that all the time. The characters flop and don't make big waves in comic sales so they are promptly killed off or just dropped.

The enchantment on Mjlnir is basically a plot device to allow writers to change the character. Whoever can lift it, obtains the powers. Kind of like a Sword in the Stone type of thing with King Arthur. So you could say Thor as a comic is built for this. At least more so than other characters.

Yeah, which wouldn't be a problem except her legs don't proportionately match with those guns. I guess it makes sense considering how the character fights but... i just don't care for the appearance of it.

Yeah but she's never been popular enough to be a main team avenger, I think a spot on the secret avengers is as high as she climbed

By giving this new women Thors powers they get an instant A-team female

Hate to draw the religion card here but. This is blasphemy... Thor "Odinsson" is the primary or secondary God of the pantheon I and my circle follow (debate over primary/secondary is because we're never clear if Odin should still be the higher)

Imagine female Jesus, female Mohammed, in the latter case you'd have war...

Marvel, disappoints me greatly.

Thor and the entire Asgardian race are based apon norse mythology not actually following it to the letter

Besides Thor is still Thor he's just lost his thunder god power by no longer being worthy to wield Mjölnir. This new women is pretty much using Thor as her code name which makes sense since her powers are.... well Thors

Dammit, a season reward? Alliance only. Fat chance of getting that then. You need to be in one of the top tier alliances to have a shot at that. Goot luck having a group of 20 people all putting in the effort every day to break the top 100 out os thousands.

Well if he didn't want people to make characters depicting him as a woman... He probably shouldn't have pretended to be Freyja to get his hammer back.


But on a serious note, there's plenty of epic Norse women in the myths, so why go changing a characters sex... It just screams a lack of imagination.

@JimmeyBurrows Well, if you want to get technical with norse myths, the Norse gods changed sex and even to different species quite often.
