It’s been a few years since we saw her on screen but who is Jane Foster really and why is she so important to Thor's history in Marvel Comics? Moreover, how does she become Thor in comic books and what happens to the original Thor when she does?

The answer to this question is way back 60 years from now with Jane having made her debut in the earliest days of the Marvel Universe.

As a result of these events, Thor becomes "unworthy" to lift his own hammer Mjolnir in accordance with the enchantment placed on it by his father Odin.

The new Thor, whose true identity remained a mystery at the beginning of her own relaunched Thor title , would quickly begin proving herself as a worthy successor to Thor Odinson (the original Thor) even aiding him in battle against Malekith.

After Thor Odinson (who hereafter becomes known only as 'Odinson' for some time) passes his name and powers onto the new Thor, readers learn that the new God of Thunder is, in fact, Jane Foster.

As it turns out, every time she turns into Thor and then reverts to her human form, the progress made in treating Jane's cancer is undone, leaving her in an unending state of terminal illness despite her continued heroism.

Eventually, Jane reveals her identity as Thor to Odinson and her fellow Avengers, as well as the rest of Asgard, when she is told by Doctor Strange that just one more transformation into Thor will lead to her death.
