Thor is the new face of breast cancer
We see Jane go from dying cancer patient to unstoppable superhero. In a previous series we know that Jane will not accept magical cures. Chemo is her best chance to beat cancer's ass. There is a twist that I won't reveal here that puts Jane's ability to kick cancer's ass in jeopardy.
I really hope that we don't get an all pink issue of The Mighty Thor to mark this battle. The pinkification of breast cancer awareness is overdone. As one of my friends with breast cancer ranted during October, we are well aware of breast cancer. Buying pink things will not get us closer to a cure or prevention. But this issue is not full of pink. Rather I feel that this issue has given me one of the starkest views of breast cancer treatment that I have ever seen.
As I wrote yesterday, I moved to digital comics, so feel free to download the issue and read yourself. I would really love to hear from those who have fought or continue to fight breast cancer. Or perhaps it may be too triggering. One thing I know, we have a new face of breast cancer and she's gonna kick its ass.
