All the more reason not to shit on them from a great height.


Marvel has a poor track record in not shitting on its canon from a great height, although recently the first place medal has gone to DC for its epic "new 52" clusterfuck.

So yeah, I agree that the big publishers don't treat their canon with respect and fans rightly get pissed off about it.

Having a female "thor-like" character, is one thing.
Claiming that character is "Thor" when it clearly isn't "Thor" is just, well, just shit writing.
Having an alternate universe Thor, where is Thor is the "first daughter of Odin" would be fine. Why the hell not?
