....but... she's not Thor though... she's someone that has Thor's power.. but Thor's not her name... this series should be called The Mighty Jane (or whatever her real name is). Just because I put someone's shoes on doesn't make me that person.
@tommythehitman: Tell that to Bucky and The Falcon when they became/become Captain America. Or Dick Grayson when he became Batman. In this instance I think it's saying that Thor is more than a name, it's an ideal to strive for. Sure it's his name, but it became something more as he became worthy to wield the hammer.
I thought Thor was a birth name like Steve or Bruce! Bucky and the Falcon will not become Steve, and Dick Grayson never was Bruce Wayne!
As Thor fan i want to see the new series succeeded but i haven't heard any reasonable explanation to call the new worthy character Thor even if he was a male, Beta Ray Bill never call himself Thor or did He? With Frigg apparently out of the equation can you see any explanation to the new character become another Thor and not only have his power, like the past of the character in comics suggest.
As for became something more, he has a small background as Norse God but nothing special compared to comic books!
I would remind you guys that there have been other people to take on Thor's name before. Eric Masterson, Beta Ray Bill, and Red Norvell called themselves Thor. Thor is both a person and a title. I mean, look at Donald Blake. Thor was his alter ego.
