They send him to the phantom zone, the end.

As for the female Thor, we don't know anything about her. We don't know if the concept is going to occur in an organic manner, or if it'll feel forced, we don't have any details. All we know is that Thor will be a woman now, and the original Thor will still remain but do something to be deemed unworthy. All we can do is wait.

You completly miss the point of rage. The problem is not in the female version of Thor. The problem that she will be named Thor. Thor is not a mantle, like Batman ot Spiderman. Thor is name. Thor is man's name. So this is like women with name Abraham or Wilhelm. If she will be named Thora or Thorita or Thoress or etc perconally i will find this tolerable. But women with name Thor is perversion. You see the point?

I see the point and have made it initially in earlier posts. They've already said she will be called Thor, and not be anything similar to what you said. I've also mentioned that Thor has been treated as a mantle/persona before, and we've also had female Thor (alternate universe).

You also miss the other part of the point of rage. Some of it is about the naming, which can be fixed later, and for others it is about it being female and that this feels forced for the sake of diversity.

Well that was a pretty easy vote, especially since I'm an Aquaman fan and he was excluded from War.

I want it!

I can't help but wonder a few things as I gave these changes some thought. If Bucky had become the new Captain America, would people be making as big of a deal? If The Falcon was Caucasian, would anyone be making a big deal about this? Perhaps Marvel is doing this for the sake of diversity, perhaps they're just doing it to make a controversial change or perhaps its just for money. The fact of the matter is that The Falcon does deserve the mantle. The character is gaining popularity ever since his appearance in the movies, so regardless, it's a smart move to promote him. Bucky already has his own series.

As for the female Thor, we don't know anything about her. We don't know if the concept is going to occur in an organic manner, or if it'll feel forced, we don't have any details. All we know is that Thor will be a woman now, and the original Thor will still remain but do something to be deemed unworthy. All we can do is wait.

Remember how people felt about Miles Morales? They were angry and kept referring to him as the black Spider-man (completely disregarding his dual ethnicity of being African-American AND Puerto Rican). He wound up a great character and the change felt organic, not forced. It plays well considering he's in New York and that is a rather diverse area, and a much more accurate and believable choice. I understand not wanting to change your favorite character, or wanting diversity to occur with new characters instead of it coming from already established characters. All we can do is wait, see how it turns out and if the stories are good, support them, that way in the future when new characters come out that are more representative, they'll succeed. Jason Aaron has done great work with Thor, God of Thunder, so I'll support it and see how it goes. I don't read Captain America, so that doesn't affect me much. I'll give it a chance.

I want the following movies (in no particular order):

1. Black Panther

2. Captain Marvel

3. Moon Knight (long shot, but it would be cool)

4. Civil War (by then the Marvel Cinematic Universe will be established enough, and they can do it in two parts)

Ah, another reason why I'm sad that I didn't get a badge. I was completely unaware of these bags, and I actually wondered about this and what to take to carry items around in. Here's hoping next March I can snag a badge this time around.

I'll give it a shot. It's not like it's the first time a black guy has been Captain America, and aside from Bucky, he is the next one worthy of the title. I know some wanted Bucky to take up the mantle again, but he's fine doing his own thing in Winter Soldier.

Maybe all the things Marvel is doing now is for diversity sake, but they're not horrible ideas. Falcon is a good character, and though I don't know the female who is going to be "the new Thor", I do kind of like the idea of Thor Odinson being unworthy and maybe having to work his way back to being worthy again. Since that's the part of the story I care about, I really don't care who is Thor at the moment.

I'll go out on a limb and say it won't be Damian returning as Robin. I wouldn't mind if Tim returned (and thus went by Robin and dropped the whole RED Robin thing) even if temporarily just for the 75th anniversary. I don't really think this will happen, but I wouldn't mind it. I'm still wondering what's going to happen with Future's End and that cover that showed what appeared to be Heretic on it. I still think there's a possibility that Heretic will be Batman 666 and not necessarily Damian (at least not the original Damian, as we know Heretic is a clone).
