@cbishop: True, but even looking at a map and choosing a random name makes this so much more sensical.

@husk: Interesting, though I wouldn't necessarily call this a PSA. More like propaganda

I want to know where she is standing? In a volcano only or something better?

Not really. Making Superman and Wonder Woman a couple brought new readers, but it also lost old – did it create a new ‘IP’? Or did it simply anger people because they didn’t want the respective company to screw them around? Superior Spider-Man was the same, did it bring new readers? It made a change to Marvel’s (truly) biggest character, was it ‘’well worth it’’? Nope. It doesn’t create attraction, creating an attraction needs real creativity, deciding to change Thor’s gender is a fad.

I think in the interest of the book and in the overall point of this discussion, that SM-WW was not designed with some great story in mind (or at least from what I can see from JL, SM and SM-WW.) It was created for the novelty of the relationship, something which a few Superman fans thought would be awesome. I didn't read anywhere in reference to this decision that Johns though that he had a great story in mind. In contrast to that though the new writer of Thor says that he does have a great story in mind. I am not sure why people would want something else. A writer evolves alongside their characters, and if this is the evolution of the writing, then so be it. Give it a chance.

Well as I said before, people will always say that something is impossible until it is proven otherwise. Those resisting female Thor are just literary luddites.

Not wanting a character, especially an all-time great character, unnecessarily altered/tampered with doesn't make one a literary luddite. It simply means one finds the existing character is fine the way he or she already is and doesn't want to, in a sense, 'lose' that character.

But you don't know that the character is lost, that is a knee jerk reaction which is impossible to know at this point. Whatever the writer has in mind, it has to involve more than "a female Thor". There has to be a lot of story behind it and I am sure that it will be good. A lot of such cases in comics have provided some of the best stories.

Marvel has done their market research of course before doing this. They wouldn't have done it if they were not convinced 100% that it would make more money.
