Speculators, Meet Erika The Red in Thor #7 (Spoilers)


In The Avengers, Thor has been getting to grips with the Hulk, Jennifer Walters. Although in today's Avengers #10 by Jason Aaron, David Marquez and Justin Posnor, he can't even ask for a date properly.

The Gof of blunder? Well, in today's Thor #7 from Jason Aaron, Tony Moore and John Rauch, it turns out that he's never been that great at it. As we meet Viking warrior, Erika The Red,

And not at all like either Rod Sonja or Red Sonya. Honest. And who has a certain, predictable effect on our Norse God.

And, after all Blondie isn't exactly the ugliest of gods. I mean, look at his father. And for all Erika's bombast, it's still pretty cool to be a god….

She doesn't even wiper her mouth first… a real barbarian.

Well, it's one way to stave off those chilly Scandinavian nights. It then goes all Girl in The Fireplace of course, but this issue has given us plenty of Erika The Red stories still to be told – with and without Thor.

This, however, is her first appearance, speculator fans. Who do you want to see play her in the fourth Thor movie?
