Jane Foster (Earth-788) 001

Jane Foster in human form

The past history of Jane Foster of Earth-788 mirrors that of her Earth-616 counterpart until early in her career working as a nurse for doctor Donald Blake. In this reality, Jane would accompany Blake on his vacation to Norway where the two would struggle with expressing their growing feelings for one another. When the alien Kronans would use Norway as the staging ground for their invasion of Earth, they would be discovered by Blake and Foster. The aliens would chase them through the mountains. During their escape, Blake would drop his cane down the side of a cliff and Jane would go to retrieve it for him falling down the side of the cliff. Unhurt, but trapped, she would venture into a nearby cave to try and find a means of getting out. She would find a bolder in her path and double back and find a cane that she believed she could use as a lever to get her out. Striking the cane against the rock, it would transform into Mjolnir, the hammer of Thor and transform Foster into a female version of the Asgardian god.

Jane would dub herself Thordis, a feminine version of Thor's name in honor of the god and use her powers to drive off the Kronan invasion. During the battle she would see Donald Blake, and he would tell her to find Jane Foster for him and confess that he loved her. Deciding to keep her double identity secret, Foster would return to her human form and reunite with Donald Blake, and be happy knowing that Blake was in love with her. The two would return to America and have a relationship together. There Foster would resume her career working as Blake's nurse, and she would witter down the walking stick into a brush so it would be easier for her to carry and conceal. On the side she would continue her career as Thordis and become a well regarded super-hero, taking time out of her schedule to visit sick children.

When Loki would free himself from captivity, he would go to Earth seeking to get revenge against Thor. Part of this plot involved turning people into negative images of themselves in order to draw Thor out. Much to Loki's surprise, it would be Thordis who would come to confront him, making him realize a mortal woman now wielded his hated step-brothers power. Seeking to trick her, he would create a mystical construct of Thor and try to convince her to return the hammer. Thordis would see through this ploy and defeat Loki, using her hammer to send him back to Asgard.

Loki would use this opportunity to further his plot to rule over Asgard by telling Odin that Thor had returned. Odin would call for Thor to return to Asgard, but this would only bring Thordis instead. Upset that his sons power had gone to a mortal woman, but resigning it to fate, Odin would banish Thordis back to Earth, leaving the realm of Asgard without Thordis's might.

Thordis would go on to have many adventures on Earth, battling foes such as Radioactive Man, Molto the Lava Man, the combined threat of Cobra and Mr. Hyde. She would also help form the Avengers but would not like how her teammates were intimidated by her powers. She would also clash with Zarrko the Tomorrow Man during this period.

Jane Foster as Thordis

When Odin would enter the Odinsleep, Loki would take over Asgard and watch as Sif would go to Earth to pursue Donald Blake, whom she loved in his identity of Thor. He would attack them, prompting Thordis to come to their rescue, and Foster would become unnerved with Blake becoming close to Sif, even as he performed surgery on Sif when she was wounded in battle. Feeling the come of Ragnarok, Thordis would seek out Sif and the two women and Donald Blake would travel to Asgard to prevent it from occurring. There they would battle Mangog and prevent the creature from pulling the Odinsword from it's sheath. The battle would be won when Odin would awaken and destroy Mangog. In the aftermath of the battle, Odin would have Thordis hand over Mjolnir to it's rightful owner, Donald Blake, who would transform into Thor. Saddened to have lost her powers and the love of her life to Sif, Jane would be rewarded for her bravery by Odin who would transform her into a god as well. Unsure where to go next, Jane would be shocked when Odin would propose to her. She would accept and the two would be married and rule over Asgard together.

Powers and AbilitiesEdit


Thordis possesses god-like speed, reflexes, strength, and durability. She is effectively immortal and is immune to disease and hostile environments. Still, her powers are considerably less after she lost the hammer Mjolnir.


Nursing skills (As Jane Foster).

Strength level

Thordis can lift (press) approximately 75 tons under optimal conditions.



Thor's hammer Mjolnir, which returns to her when thrown, controls the weather, fires energy blasts, and (when thrown properly) draws her behind it as if flying. By striking the ground with the hammer, she can shift between Jane Foster and her Thordis forms, while the hammer becomes an old wooden cane, like Dr. Donald Blake.
