Marvel Comics is making some out-of-this-world changes to one of its most iconic characters.

The hammer wielding Asgardian, Thor, is now a woman.

Writers say the original god of thunders messed up, and is no longer worthy to wield the hammer, and for the first time in history, will now be held by a woman.

The new character will be published in October.
