- Title "What if Jane Foster Discovered the Hammer of Thor?", Issue:
(First Series) 10, (C) 1978, pub Marvel, Magic, Action, Drama,
This story is an alternate telling of Thor's origin in which Nurse
Jane Foster, instead of Dr. Donald Blake, becomes Thor upon
discovering the hammer.
Perhaps not TG in the strictest sense. Petite brunette Jane Foster
turns into statuesque blonde Thor (calling herself by the feminine
variant "Thordis.") The "real soul" of Thor is still in the body of
Dr. Blake (who doesn't know his true nature before finding the
hammer, as per standard Marvel continuity). So nobody changes
genders, strictly speaking, but the traditionally male hero Thor is
a female due to the mixup, and the gods of Asgard react with
surprise at Thor's femininity.
