    Thor came in and swung his axe at them, then he's somehow gentle when he puts his hand on her and tells her to give up her mission and go home to be a sick cancer patient? How would Thor himself react to such a thing?
    It's plain to see why some of you hate this run; You can't read.

    I'm not saying Aaron hasn't had some heavy handed messages but her bluster and rage is not any worse than what we've seen Thor go on about 100 times over in the past. Her rage is no different than when Thor would get angry and run into Odin's throne room, plowing through guards, yelling, and demanding actions or answers. Thor would lose his temper so badly he'd get completely banished from Asgard. Jane, a pure and direct throwback to the Don Blake/Thor era, loses her temper and to you fine folks it's because she's towing some feminist message. That's what you people are saying.

We’re saying nothing of the sort! Yes, Thor was hot headed, impetuous, arrogant and prideful but never petty, spiteful, vindictive, bullying or nasty. And you do know this is *Jane Foster* right? A silver age character who has been a career nurse later ‘evolved’ to doctor, in other words a lifelong professional carer. I haven’t been buying the series as it’s cr@p but has Aaron developed a storyline where hefting mjolnir incontreverably changes the weilder’s fundemental personality? No? Thought not. Like most aspects of this run there’s been no forethought to narrative constructs because they’re just throwaway conceits, present for the sole purpose of forwarding a laughably pathetic post feminist agenda.

Thor is an A list character *in spite* of his personality faults, which, you should appreciate are markedly more profound under writers like fraction and Aaron. Foster was a solid silver age supporting character that’s been turned into a arse. That’s the difference and that’s what we’re saying.
