Marvel Comics is making Thor a woman. From Time Magazine:
TIME: How do you think this will impact fans who have been with the male version of Thor for such a long time?
Jason Aaron, writer of the Thor series: If you’re a long-time Thor fan you know there’s kind of a tradition from time to time of somebody else picking up that hammer. Beta Ray Bill was a horse-faced alien guy who picked up the hammer. At one point Thor was a frog. So I think if we can accept Thor as a frog and a horse-faced alien, we should be able to accept a woman being able to pick up that hammer and wield it for a while, which surprisingly we’ve never really seen before.

I feel like their childhood was mostly Loki coming up with crazy, convoluted plans while Thor just grew bored and impatient.
#this is why i feel like sif and loki could get along conditionally as children #because she loooved punching things but she also loves winning #and challenges #so she’d be more game to listen to these convoluted plans than thor #i feel like you can see a little of this in jotunheim when sif and loki are like ”thor” #”thor we must leave” #”now thor” #”for fucks sake” #old hat stuff #i mean if he’d just followed the plan we wouldn’t be here right now #sif/loki commiseration something i will always love (via alltheladiesyouhate)
ALL ABOUT THOSE TAGS. YES!
I know some people think Asgardians never get sick or have allergies: I think they do. After all, there must have been germs on Asgard, too. And pollen. I think Thor and Loki definitely got sick as children.
Thor was the worst (and still is). He hates being sick with a passion he normally saves for bashing his foe’s heads in. Even worse, he refuses to admit that he’s sick. No, he does not have sniffles. The future King of Asgard does not get sniffles. He’s too proud to alter his day one bit or take it easy, so he’s always sick longer than he needs to be. Thor is miserable when he’s sick, and when he’s miserable, everyone else is miserable, too. Loki mysteriously can’t be found anywhere. Neither can Sif, for that matter. Come to think of it, the whole palace gets pretty empty whenever Thor starts coughing. Except for Fandral. Somehow, he always ends up in Thor’s way. He thinks it’s Loki’s fault, but he’s not sure how. Loki wishes he could take credit for it, but the truth is, Fandral’s just not very good at hiding.
Loki is much more resigned to getting sick– and he always has a runny nose during Asgardian allergy season. As a child, instead of going the bombastic denial route, he would pick out a favorite book, a warm blanket, and curl up next to his mother for the day. As a result, Loki always got better before Thor did, and Thor was always really angry. Frigga always made sure Loki had plenty of tissues and hot soup, and stroked his forehead until he fell asleep. Thor was always jealous– but not jealous enough to ever admit he was sick.
As they grew up, it didn’t change much. Everyone lived in terror of Thor’s inevitable colds and equally inevitable fury at the sheer indignity of it all. Loki still just sighs when the sneezes come on, grabs a book, and lies down (preferably very far away from Thor). Frigga still supplies him with tissues and (even though Odin insists Loki is a grown man now) still sits by him while he suffers in silence. Thor (even though Odin says he’s a grown man now, too) still gets jealous.
And everyone still hides from Thor.
