Marvel Comics generated free publicity yesterday, both positive and negative, right before Comic Con by announcing they were changing Thor’s gender to that of a lady's. We'll see if Marvel can follow through with the gambit, but iIf anyone should be P.O.’d, it should be Chris Hemsworth because he found out he might be out of a job after Avengers 3.
At the end of the day, a female Thor is just ink on a page. Last night we saw a real live ass-kicking lady worth celebrating on our television sets.
Kacy Catanzaro made history, qualifying for the national finals of American Ninja Warrior, where she can win $500,000.
Watch this video the whole way through and your mouth will drop just like it did the first time you saw Kate Upton in space, but for a reason you won't be ashamed to tell your wife about.
For a 5’0 ft. 100 lbs. person, this performance ranks with other jaw dropping feats like Roger Bannister breaking the four-minute mile, Michael Phelps winning eight Gold Medals in the 2008 Olympics, Tiger Woods winning the U.S. Open on one leg, Ronda Rousey defending her title in a 16 second knockout, and fat Bartolo Colon still being able to cash Major League checks.

Kacy's low center of gravity was both a blessing and a curse, considering she'd have to jump to reach the next rung. People who weigh 100 lbs aren't known for their ability to generate momentum.
#MightyKacy's background as an elite gymnast was essential in her journey to reach the pinnacle of the obstacle course world.
I thought I was a beast for finshing a Spartan Race last summer. Mine was weak sauce compared to the crucible Kacy destroyed. I need to start working on my pull-ups.
This is the kind of feat of athleticism you'd see in a Spider-Man movie or in one of the God of War video games.
Thor's all well and good. But if Marvel ever thought about recasting Captain America's gender, I have a suggestion:
