Marvel made waves when they announced the mantel of Thor would be handed over to a woman in the comics. While many rejoiced over the positive (and long overdue) step toward greater diversity in representation, others got all snarly and sexist, living up to the worst stereotypes of excluding fanboys. Well, the makers of Thor have heard the complaints, and put them all in the mouth of a misogynist brute, who gets his ass handed to him by a girl.

More of this, Marvel. More heroes who aren’t white dudes. More mocking of sexist asshats.
In the meantime, can we get Katee Sackhoff to front a short film of this? Or a feature. We’d take that.
Kristy Puchko thinks she could pull off a Thor cape casually.
