Okay so I saw some Thor art from Marvel artist Jim Cheung on Bleeding Cool. looked okay, I guess we have all seen the gold arm/gold hammer pic by now and this looked like a pencil of something similar.
...reading some of the comments and someone posted the following (and I'm hoping this is just someone trolling, but here goes anyway):
I am pretty he convinced will be bonded with Jane as his mortal identity after this arc.
I have heard she is going to basically become the hammer (with word bubbles and all) and he wields it. Basically a Firestorm like situation.
Dr. Strange bonds her soul to the hammer and the hammer to Thor as his power source after Mangog damages the hammer and "kills" Tempest.
Thor transfers his powers to create the hammer to house Jane's soul in the fates amber liquid (why the new hammer is gold). When Thor is summoned, she becomes the hammer and he is basically summoned by her.
This gives everyone a little of what they want but Jane still the powerhouse so they hopefully stave off flake negativity of a male taking his role back. (I Heard this from a writer after a "few" and thought it was head cannon but it really does start to make sense and is feasible).
Again, this could all be nonsense BUT lets go over some of the 'highlights' of this potential nightmare scenario.
1. Thor and Jane become 'bonded'
2. Jane 'becomes' Mjolnir
3. Dr Strange rebuilds this hammer, I guess Odin was all "just let her die for goodness sake".
4. Thor transfers 'his' power into the new hammer
5. This is done to appease Jane fans and any negativity of having a male Thor.
Not sure what the rest of you think but the thought of this disturbs me. Seems like the divorce could be worse than the marriage and Thor ain't getting rid of his spiteful ex-girlfriend (who took his name and his stuff) anytime soon, in fact she's literally his strength now.
Original comment was posted here:
A) Dr.Strange should not or never have had the power to rebuild the hammer in any capacity. Loki's magic always was and should be more powerful than Strange and he shouldn't be able to reforge Mjolnir in any way.
B) Which brings me to this point. Mjolnir is a sky-father weapon and Odin created this weapon, therefore he should be the only one who can do any tinkering/modifications to it. The Jane bust-clone saga needs to come to an end period.
C) I hope once all this is over we don't have another writer giving the power of Thor to anyone EVER AGAIN. All it's done is cheapen, weaken and now has broken Thor's uniqueness over the years. The only thing that was accomplished is making everyone in question/eligible to pick up the hammer.
D) I'm so glad Ragnarok asked if he is a god of hammers to stop this nonsense of Aaron and future writers defining him with dependency on Mjolnir that all the cheap Thor clones have ever have demonstrated. They are defined by the their hammers and none of them are gods by birthright.
