JMS's poor depictions of women in Thor

On the Too Busy Thinking About Comics blog, the post tells all about the colossally overrated J. Michael Stracynski's run on the Mighty Thor, and how any women featured in the book were depicted in a very peculiarly trivial manner, shoved into the background, or just not even an essential part of the story, with Sif one of the biggest victims, as she was, courtesy of Loki's nasty tricks, stuck in the body of an elderly woman who was dying. Even Jane Foster didn't come off well: she's divorced her husband and let go of her child, all in hopes that Thor would come back to her! How insensitive can the writing get?

If that's how JMS wrote his rendition of Thor's world, then I can only start to further doubt his defense that he really didn't want to go along with Joe Quesada's alleged doctoring of his "original" plans for Sins Past in Spider-Man. He's nothing more than a hack who takes apart years of hard work and makes a mess out of it, as he's already doing with Superman and Wonder Woman.

About me

  • I'm Avi Green
  • From Jerusalem, Israel
  • I was born in Pennsylvania in 1974, and moved to Israel in 1983. I also enjoyed reading a lot of comics when I was young, the first being Fantastic Four. I maintain a strong belief in the public's right to knowledge and accuracy in facts. I like to think of myself as a conservative-style version of Clark Kent. I don't expect to be perfect at the job, but I do my best.
