    He sure as hell disrespected his predecessors with his retcon of Mjolnir with the re-donk-ulous Mother Storm b.s., the (to use your own descriptors) emasculation of the "white alpha male" in regard to the character assassination of Thor, the unnecessary maiming, the absolute "punking" of Odin, etc,etc,etc,...

I'm not suggesting for one minute I like what he's done, BUT, some people do like it. Enough in fact that its one of Marvel's best selling titles (for what that's worth today...not much). I don't feel comfortable telling other fans they aren't 'true fans' or we need to paper over Aaron's run completely.

I don't mind creators 'stirring things up' and for me, that's never been my problem with Aaron's run - in fact creating controversy is probably Aaron's greatest strength as a creator.

Frankly I DO hope we DON'T get another SJW writer following Aaron. Assuming we don't then fingers crossed the more obvious political positions of Aaron's run will get sidelined or binned...but even still I don't simply want anything retconned.

    It's irksome, especially since Hiddleston had no issues.

Probably because he so rarely had to wear it.

    So wear it for the last two and move on. He knew from go that the character has long hair. I didn't see Orlando Bloom throw a bitch fit because Legolas has long hair, or McCellan, Mortensen, Pace, etc,etc,etc,...

Again its five movies in at this point and he wore the wig for 4 1/2 of those. I don't mind some character development (haircut, losing an eye, etc.). MCU Thor is probably getting killed off in Avengers 3 and if we get a Thor 4 the character might grow the hair back to some extent.

You address Omnipotence...tread carefully.
