    This 'mary-sue' idea is insidious. I would be willing to bet that Aaron isn't for one minute thinking of Jane like that. I believe that is being brought to the table by people perceiving Aaron as...

    I totally agree that JMS onwards is a great era for Thor (perhaps excepting Fraction who I don't think quite hit his mark.) I am less convinced by anything that came before that, although I have come...

    It feels like this is supposed to make us question what Jane would become if she never changed back and stayed as Thor, the temptation to go along with the storm just as Volstagg is being pulled...

    Some of us just don't think about characters as if they are real, well because they are not. So I just find it utterly baffling when an otherwise well reasoned argument ends up talking about sullying...

    Can I just point out Thor was not originally perceived as the character in Simonson. If any one writer has changed the character of Thor and the world he exists in, more than any other, it is...

    What does "a cure for cancer" even mean? As if the broad and varied spectrum of cancers is a single thing we can somehow find a single solution to. Forgive me if I am sceptical that current editors...

    You are taking my words entirely out of context (even if that is partly my failure to express myself). I am not debating whether cancer is curable in the comics, or in the real world, I am talking...

    I just don't see the flaw. "Magic comes with a price" is shorthand. It perfectly encapsulates what Jane's starting point is and gives us foreshadowing for what will happen when she picks up the...

    Well, I think Aaron threads that needle well. He is telling a story, not just being clever with analogies. I would suggest most writers working today are not as accomplished at the technique as he...

    I was compiling a reply but you have pretty much hit every point I was going to make. (Aside from the fact that this new info is entirely consistent with everything Marvel have said so far about it.)

    Sorry I didn't realise Lumpkin was a superhero. I cant see what that is supposed to add to the debate? We are talking about major elements of drama involving key characters in the story, not side...

    There absolutely wasn't a cure on the table. Thor offered to search for it. Not the same thing, and it is her choice. If she doesn't want magical treatment she has the right to refuse any attempts....

    Sure, what you are asking is 'Is Volstagg being used as a dramatic foil for Jane, and are their situations supposed to mirror each other such that one informs the other?' This is what structural...

    No, it is a basic principle at editorial level. See The Death of Captain Marvel. This isn't to say no cancers can be cured ever, but every now and again somebody will get terminal cancer and they...

    He certainly has his strengths, I am not sure I would agree with the word 'beats'. As I say, I would have preferred a whole issue of Schiti than what we got, which is a contrast. What I admire about...

    She has CANCER there is a very good reason cancer has traditionally been treated as a killer disease with no magic bullet at Marvel. It is a recognition that even now huge numbers of people die of...

    On the contrary, this kind of scene often comes right before a reconciliation. This is straight out of the Jane Austin playbook. An argument where two people talk past each other while only half...

    I disagree. This is a reading that allows Thor to be looking at things backwards. He is trying and failing to see things from her perspective. He is remembering the times women flirted with him,...

    To me it reads as projected jealousy in a dysfunctional conversation about unresolved issues. Why pick the worst possible interpretation when there are clues that this isn't what is being said?

    Well don't see it as a reference to cheating then. I don't and I doubt Aaron does either.

    You are responding to something you feel strongly about, don't feel bad, we don't all need to agree. Thor has a convoluted and often contested cannon. It isn't a simple story and things contradict...

    To address concerns being expressed elsewhere that this issue is suggesting Thor had affairs while he was with Jane I would point to both the wording and the context.

    Dalliance can imply a casual...
