:skull: Too hot! :skull:

Not sure if anyone's seen the weather forecast for England over these next two days... But yeah; the heat is bloody ridiculous!
I'd planned to get some things done today after Gareth's days off work; but it's too damn hot to do anything! I think I'm just going to go collapse on the armchair & not move till I have to pick the kids up from school.



:skull: Female Thor? :skull:

But before I do that; I want to get my views across about this 'big news' that Marvel recently unveiled...


In all honesty... 


I think it's absolute RUBBISH!


Now; of course those of you who know me well enough know I'm someone who is sick of stereotypes; as well as the portrayal of women in most things media related. But for fuck sake this is not the way you go about trying to 'win over' more female readers!

First off; Thor is one of the more popular characters, I LIKE THOR! & to top it off there's the whole mythology part of the old Norse religion that Marvel seems excellent at completed bastardizing altogether (I only got into the Thor comics because I adore mythology); & now they announce this gem... They're getting rid of an established character; replacing him with some huge breasted blonde woman & saying it's to draw in more female readers...?

If they're sole intention is to get more female readers interested in comics; then why not work on an already existing character & pull her out of the "I'm really just here to look pretty with big boobs as I stand next to the stronger male characters" role & actually make her more interesting?!
Or better yet; get off their butts & create a whole new heroine that would appeal more to women then to men! & dare I say it; make her more realistic & not some super model look alike bordering on the lines of a Mary Sue.

I could go on about it; of course, but I wont.

To put it simply; to me, this is just lazy writing!

Hell if they really wanted to push the envelope; why not replace Stark with a female character?! Now that would be something!
A highly intelligent successful business woman character with self respect that doesn't take crap from anyone, plus it would kind of go against the whole 'womanizing' side that is associated with Iron man. I'd rather see that!

Unless Marvel have the attitude of 'hey; Thor's character is based on mythology, so that means we can make anything up', because it certainly seems that way.

(just as a side note, if anyone mentions about Loki switching from male to female in the comics; read the mythology! Who do you think Sleipnir's 'mum' is? Loki being female makes more sense!)</span>


Ugh... So; yeah. I'm all for them making some characters/stories more appealing to female characters, but not by going about it in this way!

I'm off to go collapse in a heap of pregnancy hormones on my armchair & eat some ice cream.



Hope all is well with you guys!


Chat laters my freaky minions :wave:
