"Thor’s not a guy anymore.
Thor’s a gal.
Marvel Comics announced that their male hero of yore was no longer worthy to hold the mighty hammer Mjölnir.
(Bear with us.)
"The inscription on Thor’s hammer reads ‘Whosoever holds this hammer, if HE be worthy, shall possess the power of Thor.’ Well it’s time to update that inscription," said Marvel editor Wil Moss in a statement. "The new Thor continues Marvel’s proud tradition of strong female characters like Captain Marvel, Storm, Black Widow and more. And this new Thor isn’t a temporary female substitute – she’s now the one and only Thor, and she is worthy!"
Wait, there’s more.
"This is not She-Thor. This is not Lady Thor. This is not Thorita. This is THOR,” said writer Jason Aaron. “This is the THOR of the Marvel Universe. But it’s unlike any Thor we’ve ever seen before."
Thor will be Marvel’s eighth comic featuring a female in its leading role, which the publisher says “aims to speak directly to an audience that long was not the target for Super Hero comic books in America: women and girls.”
So watch your back, Captain America.”
My story takes place in an otherworld setting where magic users make up about 1 to 2% of humans. Anywho, many of the magic users are noticeably marked because of their powers. This includes abnormal or vivid eye color and strange markings on their skin and unnatural hair color. I'm wondering if this is too cliche and overdone? How can I make it less cliche?
A lot of authors choose mutations they can purple prose over to mark their magical characters. I’ve seen lots of magicians that have weird hair/eyes/tattoos … not so many with tentacle fingers, warts, or something creepy like eyes without whites. I don’t intend to force you away from your original idea, but it the commonness of aesthetically pleasing magic markers is something to keep in mind.
I think it would be cool to have side effects that aren’t visual. For example:
- A certain voice tone that all magic users have. It would be funny if all the magic users sounded like a six-year-old girl, but if you’re not aiming for the ridiculous, you maybe the voice sounds like that weird monotone people use to disguise their voice in videos.
- Magicians are surrounded by their own background music. It’s very subtle, audible only to the magic user and people 0-2 feet away from them. The music changes based on emotions and type of magic wielded.
- Magicians all smell a certain way. I’ve seen this a few times, but it’s always a minor trait or a result of tinkering in laboratories. Evil people tend to smell like brimstone and good people tend to smell like something flowery (women) or smokey/spicy (men). Choose your own scent.
- Magician’s touch. You can detect a magician by the way their skin feels. Their skin may look normal, but touching it feels like touching scales or feathers or water or a live wire.
