Not quite a billboard but a 2m high exhibition display. Gah!

I thought the modern way was to take a photo with your tablet, thus ensuring everyone behind you gets blinded too.

Seriously, what do they think a little blinking led is going to do at that kind of range?

I'd be amazed if Thor hadn't already spent some time as a lady ... and then gone back to how everything was before. Just as I'm sure he's probably become a mortal, been dead, got married, had kids, went evil, found out he was a twin, gave up being a hero, failed to prevent the destruction of the entire universe ... and then everything went back to how it was before. Nature of the medium.

If it was happening in Al Ewing's book, you'd have more faith he'd do something interesting, weird, and funny with the idea.

…and turned into a frog. Which, apparently, is more acceptable to Marvel fans than Thor being a woman. Anyone who thinks the character won't back on-model for portrayal by Chris Hemsworth in time for Avengers 2 is kidding themselves.

Yes, I seem to remember Beta Ray Bill turned out okay- but then he was a he.

Thor confuses me anyway. What happened to Dr Donald Duck and tapping his stick on the ground to turn into Thor? I liked that idea, and the inherent "human worthy enough to be a god" idea. If thats what theyre getting back to, good on them.

Yeah, I liked Don Blake. And if Thor's hammer left his hand for more than 30 seconds he'd turn back!

Possibly totally tangential, but did Thor not masquerade as a maiden in Norse myth?

Indeed he did, in what is one of my favourite stories of the Poetic Edda, where Thor is disguised as Freya when she is to be wed to the jotun Thryma, and Loki (as bridesmaid) has to keep making excuses for Thor's unladylike behaviour at the wedding feast. It's a standalone piece of humour that would slot neatly into everything from (topically) Carry On Up The Bifrost to (sadly also topically) The Young Ones. 

Both my kids roll about laughing when we read this one.

The very one, doubt if it's got much to do with the Marvel franchise version (I could care less). Z
