MARVEL'S AVENGERS Celebrates THOR: LOVE AND THUNDER With The Arrival of Jane Foster's The Mighty Thor

Jane Foster's The Mighty Thor is the newest playable character in Crystal Dynamics' action-RPG Marvel's Avengers. While not linked to the MCU, the game is clearly celebrating Thor: Love and Thunder.

Crystal Dynamics' Marvel's Avengers may not be tied to the Marvel Cinematic Universe, but the timing of their content always seems to sync up with something big going on. Today, we've got the release of Jane Foster's The Mighty Thor as a playable character. With Thor: Love and Thunder hitting theaters on July 8, her arrival couldn't be more perfectly timed.

Jane Foster's transformation into the Goddess of Thudner originates from the comics written by Jason Aaron. She first appeared as the character in issue #1 of 2014's Mighty Thor. As the story goes, when Thor Odinson becomes unworthy to wield Mjolnir, it sits dormant on the moon. Although many try (and fail) to pick up the legendary hammer, it is Jane, who is battling cancer, who hears Mjolnir calling out to her.

Upon wielding the weapon, she transforms into the Mighty Thor which continued in 2015's Mighty Thor Series and 2019's War of the Realms. At the conslusion of her arc, she transcends mortality and is reborn as Valkyrie.

But like all the other heroes in Marvel's Avengers, Crystal Dynamics has come up with their own lore for The Mighty Thor.

In Marvel’s Avengers, Jane – the Mighty Thor – is torn from an alternate timeline through a rift in space-time caused by Tachyon Anomalies. In her original timeline, Jane became the Goddess of Thunder when she took up the mantle from Thor, who in his grief gave up Mjolnir after the A-Day tragedy and Jane's cancer diagnosis.

Jane Foster will be voiced by Zehra Fazel in Marvel's Avengers. The talented voice actor is known for her work across video games (Apex LegendsBorderlands 3Destiny 2) and television (She-Ra and the Princess of PowerBig Hero 6: The SeriesLost in Space). 

It doesn't sound like Jane Foster will be getting her own custom campaign in Marvel's Avengers. However, players can learn more about her by collecting intel documents and through character banter in the game. There's also the animatic, Marvel's Avengers - The Mighty Thor: Out of Time, illustrated by veteran Marvel artist Takeshi Miyazawa, that shares more of Mighty Thor's story.

Check it out below.

As far as how she plays, Jane's Mighty Thor possesses all the strength and power of a God of Thunder. Her abilities and playstyle are inspired by how Jane fights in the comics, specifically with more finesse with Mjolnir than the Odinson. Her style, including her in-game Outfits, are also inspired by the comics. Once Jane Foster's The Mighty Thor arrives today, players can complete her specific mission chain and Hero Challenge Card to earn special rewards, including exclusive cosmetics and intel documents that delve deeper into Jane's story.

The Mighty Thor will be playable completely for free following today's 2.5 Patch update. Following this update, Crystal Dynamics has plans to add to the game's story with  two new challenges "as part of an ambition to advance our narrative through hero and villain-centric content."
