When Jane Foster was first created in Journey to the Mystery #84 (1962), by Larry Lieber and Jack Kirby, she was no more than a love interest for Thor. The Nurse to Dr. Donald Blake, she would fall in love with Thor eventually they became lovers. However, she eventually broke up with him after Odin had turned her into a goddess (no not that one) and was driven mad with the power. She would become one of Thor supporting cast, earning her doctorate and marrying to another doctor.
After divorcing her husband, she would eventually contract cancer. Thor, who no longer was able to wield Mjolnir after the Original Sin story, took her to Asgard for help, which was now located on the Blue Area of the Moon. She refused the Asgardian medicine, having a form belief that it would come at too much of a price and much to Thor’s disappointment. One night, she heard a call and went for a walk. She eventually happened upon Mjolnir. Reaching out for it, she was transformed into Thor, The Goddess of Thunder. She held the role well but eventually gave up the role back to Thor.
Being a civilian most of her life, Jane Foster was never going to get a figure. It’s only when she became Thor (dubbed Lady Thor by fans) that she got a figure.

- When Jane Foster became Thor, there was a big mystery about who she was. That was because the human Jane Foster was a sickly skinny woman who could barely get out of bed with cancer. When she becomes Thor, her cancer was cured but would return when she was human.
- Why you need it for your collection?:
- If you are a Thor fan or a Avengers fan, then this figure is an absolute most. Given her status in the current Marvel, then it is nice to have her as well. It should be noted the only difference between the SDCC one and the retail one is glowing eyes and hammer, so get the retail one.
- Does it need a remake?:
- No,perfect as is.
