Jim Goad on Thor’s sex change

Jim Goad writes:

In Norse mythology, Thor has a golden-haired wife named Sif. They could have easily made her into a comic-book superhero and thus avoided meddling with ancient European cultural tradition. The fact that they didn’t suggests that the primary motive is meddling with ancient European cultural tradition.

But last week’s three cases are hardly the first instances of PC injecting itself virus-like into the comic-book world in an attempt to mold impressionable young minds.
