What If Thordis by jerrycarr What If Thordis by jerrycarr
Can you tell I'm in a nostalgic mood? I'm old enough to remember when the original What If? series first came out. One of my favorite stories was What if Thor was a woman? It was awesome! Here's my homage to those halcyon days.

I've always been fond of the lady versions of my fave characters. She-Hulk, Ms Marvel, Supergirl, Batgirl, etc. Even if the stories were kind of cheesy.

That was a great issue. I did a pic of Thordis too but you're came out much better. [Like the skirt.]

As with much of my work, I look at this piece now and see all the wonky anatomy. I gotta do a new one!

I just found this - great stuff. I still have this issue of What If. The intital transformation of the surprised Jane Foster into Thordis was one of the best Marvel ever did.

Thankee! Yah, I miss the old-school stuff. Rarely do the new What If comics hold up to the charm of the early mags.

You know it! Like, "What if Conan were trapped in the 20th century", and "What if the Fantastic Four had different powers". Man, they were great books.

Yah, weren't they great? I have a powerful affection for 1970s and early 1980s comics, and the early "What If's" were among the best!

Thanks m'man! Y'know those are the kinds of comics that warped us for all time...

Finally back in town, brother. Was in for a couple days, then back to Philly. My dad's good and on his way back home. I'm almost a city boy now...

You know, seeing this, and really digging the female Thor from Avengers Next, and Marvel's struggle to keep a Thor regular afloat, it occurs to me, they really need to switch the gender on the character, I think that would help!

Great piece.

Thanks much! Y'know, I think you're onto something. It'd be cool to have a female Thor for a year or so--just to shake things up. She could still have some kind of conflicted relationship with Sif...

That's just a scary idea. The power of a god that can level mountains in a being that goes through pms.....not to mention the anger of being scorned. :)

What was that movie that was released about a superhero girl and a regular guy going through a breakup. I know, goofy idea for a movie, didn't see it but man....the power of Thor in that situation. That'd be one screwed dude. She send lightening bolts directed at the family jewels. Oh man....makes me shiver. :)

Cheers brother,

Man, it's just what the franchise needs! Think about the buzz over Beta-Ray Bill. Someone else commented about how it would shake up the world of Thor. Don't get me wrong, I think the current run by JMS is some of the best Thor since Simonson. I just like the idea of a thunder goddess...

I'd never like the character of Thor (only the Ultimates one) but if he was a woman ans as beautiful as this, maybe I would be more interested :D

Great drawing ! Love your work :)

Thanks so much! Means a lot to me--I've been a fan since I first saw your work.

Anything John Buscema drew in the 70s/80s became a favorite of mine--so his run on Thor made me a fan of all things Asgardian. My interest has waned from time to time, but there have been some phenomenal creative teams on the book.

C'mon now--you know you want to draw your own Thordis... I know I'd like to see it!

Dude, I gotta admit my embarrassment. I got you confused with another deviant I've corresponded with. Me am big dummy--brain fuzzy from lack of sleep. Having said that--you do have a great gallery, and I'm watching you closely to make sure you draw EVERY DAY!

Thanks Homie! Yah, it was a blast. All the old What If? stories were cool. Another classic was "What if Conan was trapped in the present" or some such similar title. Was waaay cool. Ah, for the 70s comics...
