        Is A Thor By Any Other Name Still Thor? | PBS Idea Channel

        Female THOR has brought about some controversy. But, gender issues aside, people seemed most perturbed with labeling someone other than the male THOR as THOR. Chris Hemsworth even somewhat cemented his THOR character in The Avengers as the modern incantation of THOR, so how could the new comic book THOR not be Thorina or Lady THOR? Why just THOR? Join Michael Rugnetta on this episode of PBS Idea Channel as he investigates what the labeling and naming of someone or something actually means.
