imo this is weird. why not just make a female character and focus on her as much as marvel focuses on Thor? idgi

that's literally what they're doing, except simultaneously disregarding male thor at the same time. ('disregarding' is not the word i want to use but it's 3 AM and i can't think of the right one.) and like... I'm not a comic expert at all but from what I hear it's not like this is the first time that someone else has taken thor's name/powers, just the first time it's been a woman I think.

also like.... by having it be an already established hero it ensures people will read it and buy it. So it's a safer bet for the higher ups who are probably gross and too wimpy to make enough female superheros for anyone's liking. Annnnd it guarantees a wide audience and forces people to acknowledge her. Thor is literally one of the biggest marvel heroes. one of "the big 3." Founding member of the Avengers. HUGE part of the current MCU avengers and therefore a huge cash cow for marvel. Making Thor a girl is a pretty bold move that no one can ignore. Making a new separate superhero would just be a pretty usual, run of the mill thing.

i think it's kinda like when Miles Morales became Spider-man. In both situations it guarantees a fan-base and attention and all the stuff that comic book creators want, whereas otherwise it would just be another new hero that might end up forgotten in the void or whatever.
