Marvel’s Avengers is Getting Jane Foster’s Mighty Thor

Marvel's Avengers Mighty Thor

Marvel’s Avengers still exists, and it’s getting Jane Foster’s The Mighty Thor.

Yes, we’d kind of forgotten about Square Enix’s Avengers game, but it’s still toddling along and now, with Thor: Love and Thunder hitting cinemas, The Mighty Thor is getting a look in. Wait, who?

If you’ve only watched the movies, Jane Foster, played by Natalie Portman, is the scientist who aided Chris Hemsworth’s Thor. The two had a relationship but broke up before the third entry in the series. However, in the comics she got cancer and, after Thor was judged unworthy, became The Mighty Thor.

The movie is following a similar premise, and now Jane Foster is coming to Marvel’s Avengers, in her Mighty Thor incarnation. She’ll arrive in update 2.5 which, with update 2.4 having a May release window, is a little way off. But when she does turn up she’ll be a playable character and hopefully she won’t just have Thor’s exact same power set.

We’re curious to see if Square Enix includes any of her other incarnations as alternate skins, because after relinquishing the mantle of the Mighty Thor, she eventually became Valkryie, continuing her adventures in the Marvel Comics Universe. We’ll have to wait and see.

Marvel’s Avengers is available for PC, PS4 and Xbox One. You can read our review here.
