A popular comic book series is getting a major makeover by Marvel.
Marvel made the major announcement on its Facebook page on Tuesday, causing quite a stir on social media.
Officials revealed the newest comic series will feature a common name but with a big twist.
Thor is now a woman.
“The new Thor continues Marvel’s proud tradition of strong female characters like Captain Marvel, Storm, Black Widow and more. And this new Thor isn’t a temporary female substitute- she’s now the one and only Thor, and she is worthy,” said Wil Moss, a Marvel editor.
