She will wield Mjolnir...
Superhero Hype reports that Marvel Comics has announced that in October, Thor will no longer be worthy to carry Mjölnir. Instead, a new female Thor will take the hammer and become God of Thunder. The new series is called Thor. It will be written by Jason Aaron (Thor: God of Thunder, Original Sin) with art from Russell Dauterman (Cyclops).
Marvel editor Wil Moss said: "The inscription on Thor's hammer reads ‘Whosoever holds this hammer, if HE be worthy, shall possess the power of Thor.' Well it's time to update that inscription. 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!"
Aaron added: "This is not She-Thor. This is not Lady Thor. This is not Thorita. This is THOR. This is the THOR of the Marvel Universe. But it's unlike any Thor we've ever seen before."
