We were teased the other day with mysterious hints that there would be big news from Marvel coming out of The View today. Now we know what it’s all about. It seems that Thor has lost his mojo and his hammer after he becomes unworthy to hold the mighty Uru hammer. Details are sparse, but the big announcement was that a female character will be filling the gap and taking up Thor’s hammer and powers. (more…)
So yeah, I understand corporate synergy, but why oh why is Marvel making a “landmark” announcement about the comic book X-Men on The frakking View? Did Jimmy Kimmel think it was to gauche? The gang from Good Morning America only likes anti-mutant coverage?
Well, whatever the reason, there’s going to be a big announcement about The Astonishing X-Men #50 on tomorrow’s installment of The View. Here’s the press release from Marvel, and some accompanying art work. Make of it what you will.
