Jane Foster, Valkyrie And Namor To Join The Avengers?

Jane Foster was the girlfriend of Donald Blake, the human form of Thor. Then of Thor. Then not. Then she became Thor. Then she became Valkyrie. And now? She may well be becoming an Avenger. In today's Avengers #50/#750, one of the Multiversal Deathloks searching for Avengers to join a cause, identifies Jane Foster, working in the morgue as both Valkyrie and an Avenger. The latter description, she declines.

Mephisto's Plans Unfold In Avengers #50

It all depends how you look at things with your dead, cyborg, all-temporal seeing eye of yours. Jane Foster, played by Natalie Portman will also be Thor in the upcoming Thor: Love And Thunder movie, reprising aspects of the comic book story, including Foster'd diagnosis of breast cancer. This might be about the time the character deserves getting a little increased promotional presence. As Avengers #53 solicits tell us "The Black Panther fights to defend the mountain alongside his surprising new teammates, King Namor of Atlantis and Jane Foster, the mighty Valkyrie." So she's joining the Avengers and so is Namor, even after his going to war with them. That's what happens, it seems, when She-Hulk saves Atlantis from a gamma bomb explosion.
