As reported, a mysterious new female character has taken the role of Thor, as Thor โ€” er, the ex-Thor โ€” is found unworthy of Mjolnir. Artist Russell Dauterman has revealed the new design of the character formerly known as Thor, and he's basically cosplaying as Tetsuo from Akira.

No, seriously:


Forgive me for using a toy, but it showed off the cape/slacks combo best. More importantly, what the hell is Thor doing with a robot arm now? Did Odin take away Mjolnir and the hand holding it? Yikes.

Anyways, Dauterman also revealed the origin character model for the new Thor, too:


The design of both Thors look fine, and it seems like ex-Thor will be going by Thor Odinson to help people differentiate between him and the new Thor (just try to explain what's happening in Thor by referring to both characters solely as "Thor." You will sound like a crazy person). I still feel like this could be settled a hell of a lot more easily by just calling whoever she is the new God of Thunder, but whatever.
