Why do you want it to be a lie so badly?

Well if it is true, it is when Marvel jumps the shark.

I also heard they were killing-off Archie (from the comic of the same name). That, to me, seems even more extreme a change to make for an established comic book.

I haven't read comics in a long time, but didn't they also kill Superman a few years ago? What's gotten in to these comic writers that they feel the need to do things like that?


ADDED: I realize they're probably ending the "Archie" comic line. I mean it's an extreme way to do it and to change the tone of the comic.

I wouldn't worry, this status quo shouldn't last too long. In fact, I am sure that the Thor we all know and love will have Mjolnir back by the time Avengers 2 hits theaters. From what I have read it sounds like Thor does something that makes him unworthy for the hammer, and his hammer goes to a successor who is worthy. I am sure the result is that Thor has to go on a hero's journey of sorts and win back his right to wield the hammer. Which I can pretty much guarantee he will. That said, the concept sounds intriguing, and the author of this upcoming storyline has been writing Thor for a while, and he is doing a great job on the book. So it will be interesting to see what happens.

I suspect part of the reason for this is that not too long ago in the Spider-Man books, Doctor Octopus took over Peter Parker's body and become a new and different Spider-Man. This storyline was a big success for Marvel, and gave them a huge jump in sales, particularly when Peter reclaimed his body. Similarly, it looks like someone other than Steve Rogers will be the new Captain America. Again, it is a temporary move, and not the first time Steve Rogers was replaced by another person who became Captain America. Although like Thor, I am sure Rogers will be back as Captain America in time for Avengers 2.

The Archie comic line isn't ending. The story where Archie is killed is part of an alternate reality, and not part of the regular Archie comics continuity. Although I don't follow those books, it sounds like they have been recently printing several "imaginary stories" that take place outside continuity, including Riverdale being infested with zombies, and stories that feature the Archie characters as adults.

Thanks for the info, Michael!

Same here. I just wish they had made her a black, left-handed lesbian with a passion for beef stew. That way this new "Thor" could represent everyone here at the FSM board.

Well, I'm left-handed and a male lesbian so, eh, close enough. I haven't looked at myself in the mirror lately so I'm not sure if I'm still white or not. Not big into beef stew, though.
