Jason Aaron: I don't...finish one story and think, Man, Tumblr is gonna love this one — I just tell the story I want to tell and put it out into the world and see what people think. I knew I wanted to get to the point where the previous Thor was unworthy and it kinda opened the door for someone else to come along and pick up his hammer and carry it for a bit. But I never really considered another character than the one that we have — the one that's underneath that mask — for a couple reasons: One, we've seen a lot of different characters pick up that hammer over the years, over the 600-plus issues of Thor. Very rarely have those characters been women… really just in a scene here or there or a one-shot, so on the one hand this is a slant on the story we haven't really seen before, and on the other, I knew I didn't want this to be a brand-new character who came out of the blue. I wanted it to be someone from Thor's corner of the Marvel Universe. So, if you look around at the supporting cast I've surrounded Thor with, most of them are female. A lot of them are characters who have been in Marvel comics for years and then there are also some brand-new female characters I've added to the mix. If I was looking to pick somebody from Thor's supporting cast, chances are that was gonna be a lady.

JA: We get the first tease ever at the end of Issue 1, and Issue 2 we get to see her in action for the first time — and there's already a lot of speculation of who she is underneath that mask. ... We'll start to compile those suspects in the pages of the book and, of course, there will be a lot of characters in the book who are interested in figuring out who this woman is... including the previous Thor — he's gonna wanna know who's running around with his hammer. So, there will be a lot of suspects and at some point we'll start crossing those suspects off the list. We'll play with the mystery for a bit but really the focus of the story isn't just about the mystery or surprise of there being a female who is Thor and the surprise of finding out who is under the mask. The real story, once we do lift that mask, is finding out what the story is of that character. All the mystery and surprise is really just an introduction to her and what her real story is.
