“Thor: Love and Thunder”: How Jane Foster became the female Thor
Before Jane Foster could become a superhero, Thor had to lose his hammer.
How’d Jane Foster get Thor’s hammer?
Since gods were no longer deemed worthy of possessing such power, it made sense that the next person to wield Mjolnir would be an über-intelligent, good-hearted human (other than Steve Rogers, that is).
But oh, there’s a twist — in this comics run, Foster has cancer, and being Thor drains her to the point where, if she continues to fight, her superheroism will end her life.
When did Jane Foster cease being Thor?
As a reward for her bravery and sacrifice, Foster was resurrected as one of the Valkyrior, a league of women warriors who defend Asgard. And when her tenure as Thor was through, the original God of Thunder himself reclaimed his mantle.
What will the movie have in store for Jane Foster’s Thor?
Devoted Marvel fans will have to wait and see how director Taika Waititi brings Jane Foster’s Thor to life when the film hits theaters this weekend.
