    Hey all,

    one of the recent threads got me thinking about a possible ending to Aaron's run that would not only blow my mind but also get me to retrospectively buy all the Jane-Thor issues and sing Aaron's praises as the best Thor run of all time (yes potentially even better than Walt's). I don't see this happening but here goes.

    Jane-Thor was a (revenge) plot to manipulate, undermine and unravel the lives of Thor and Odin.

    Odin and Thor had messed with Jane's life; this was her payback.

    Obviously Jane couldn't do this alone, it would require some powerful partner...Loki? Frigga? Mephisto? Cul? Enchantress? Gorr? Mangog? Malekith? The Enchanters? Immortal-Jane from an alternate timeline where she becomes an Enchanter? Who knows.

    Rather than destroy Thor and Odin physically, the plan was to systematically destroy their self-respect, confidence, position and authority. To take away a god's very BELIEF in themselves...just as Jane had her self-belief and life taken away.

    As a woman 'wronged' and scorned Jane was the perfect vessel for revenge.

    The enchantment on the hammer was (somehow) reversed (suggesting the Enchanters), thus neither Thor nor Odin could lift it.

    The whisper was (something like): " wouldn't save her"; acknowledging how Thor essentially let the real Jane personality be destroyed by Odin and did nothing to stop it.

So in essence Jane is a villain this entire time? While it does make some sense (which was shown in the Jane-Odin fight), she has bitter animosity towards Odin, it's pretty apparent she's already teamed up with the Mother Storm who hates Odin which is why she was chosen to wield the hammer in the first place.

And Jane's life wasn't destroyed in the slightest. She was offered the invitation to become a goddess but couldn't meet the challenge. When she failed and asked Odin to return her to Earth, there was NEVER, not ONCE, did Jane ever show any remorse, hatred, or ill-will towards Odin until Aaron took over.

So this theory is reaching for something that is doubtful to happen.
