Which Jane Foster book will see the biggest jump or become the better investment as we move closer to Thor: Love and Thunder's release?

Journey Into Mystery #84




What If #10




Thor #1 2014




Thor God of Thunder #25 (Female Thor cameo)



Which camp do you belong to, and what is your thought process on which you believe will become the best investment?

I ask as the reports of Christian Bale being in talks to join the cast of the movie might bring everyone's game to a higher level. If Jane Foster's Thor is handled correctly then Disney can produce several other movies with Natalie Portman as the character. Portman is 4 years older than Gal Godot. If the Portman Thor movie is 3/4 as good as the first Wonder Woman I can see Disney moving forward with more Thor movies.

Female Thor to me.... was.... is.... and always will be a novelty act. Novelty acts dont have staying power over the years history has shown.
That said, Jane Foster is a significant character in the Thor mythos, and the 84 is a silver age book... so I pick that one for sure

Define “jump” or “better investment”. Percent growth? Short/long term investment?

JiM 84 is already a high buy-in price....and JF has been already introduce into the MCU. So if we’re talking percent profit or fast profit probably not the book for you. But it’s a key that should steadily increase over time in any grade.

I think What If 10 may settle then jump again when filming starts and trailers are out. But will likely go up and down and if you’re looking to flip gotta time it right. It already showed its potential and has begun to settle back again, Probably the most money making opportunity in 9.6/9.8...a high buy in. And it doesn’t matter it’s not in continuity because he MCU isn’t in continuity. it’s still a first in comic history.

Forget about about Thor GoT 25. Buy them cheap and flip them. It’s a cameo, she’s not on the cover...if it’s not slab worthy then it’s not a good investment.

Thor #1 will likely never be a Spider-verse 2 or Ult Fall-out 4...not as long as there’s other more important firsts out there. This is a book for those who can’t compete with the big boys.

So best long term/guarantee and net profit = JiM 84. But I can’t see big jumps because the movie will be about Thor JF, not The JF in this book.

Best return in investment short term = what If 10 First is more relatable to the movie plot. And the cover is slab worthy. People love that when throwing money at comics. But look for opportunities to buy in during a lull in news.

I say none. Gimmick character and 100 lbs woman doesn't do it for me as Thor. Is Portman even going to do more than one movie? I don't see her doing a long term commitment after not being happy with the first 2 movies. I could be wrong. Maybe she wants that mcu money.

That WhatIf?10 is already doing some impressive numbers.

The whole concept was an ok read. That’s it, it was just ok. It’s almost like Aaron was challenged to do it in an email/meeting or something. He pulled it off, but it wasn’t great.

I, like many, have reservations about Portman as Thor. She’s a great actress, but just really doubt she has the physicality/presence to play Thor.

I think it'll turn out ok. Hemsworth is always Thor (and never Donald Blake) whereas Jane Foster will turn into Thor. I would guess Portman Thor will likely be CGI, like Norton/Ruffalo Hulk.

On the comic front, I agree with @Drogio. What If 10 is the book to have at least short term, maybe small jumps on anything else, and JIM 84 is the best long-term book for reasons that have nothing to do with the movie.

@dpiercy Thanks for the response.

I read the 2014/2015 series over the weekend and enjoyed it. That's saying a lot as most modern comics don't hold my interest for more than 3 or 4 pages. The story has SHIELD agents running around, mixed with gods, bad guys who are interesting, and a hero who is dying of cancer. Jane Foster isn't a deeply flawed hero who is seeking redemption like Natasha Romanoff. I can see why Disney is interested in doing the movie. It is built for daughters to have a hero they can look up to and emulate. That translates into money for the Mouse with the influx of new fans.

@Drogio Thanks for the post and the information!

How is a human female supposed to "look up to" a character who has godly powers...? That never makes sense to me. It's why Superman is an ideal - not someone to look up to, but something to strive towards.

Disney has more than one Princess on the animated film side of the business. So, it would make sense that the MCU can have more than one female comic character/hero that would also be of interest to female children.

Dario Agger is the CEO of Roxxon Energy. Raxxon Energy first shows up in Captain America 180.

JIM 84 would be my guess for an actual investment, SA book, first appearance of Jane Foster. What If #10 may have some short term spec, and could still be a viable BA book to own or flip or whatever you preference is, but I would still go JIM 84 on this one.

@Drogio and @Studley_Dudley

I agree with both of you. I think Journey Into Mystery 84 is the book to own and hold in ones collection. 2nd Thor appearance and 1st Jane Foster appearance. I do like drawing for the cameo in Thor God of Thunder 25. For a cameo it certainly looks like a first appearance to me:

I think spec had passed you by on that one. Unless you find hidden in back issue bins this week. Already jumped from $1 to $30 book this past week. I know because I flipped a few of them. 😁

A little off topic, but is anyone else surprised the Ultimate books didn't see any lift out of the MCU?

Much of the MCU comes from those, so why they aren't doing anything is a mystery to me.

I'm thinking Jane Fosters first appearance is the one to have. I think the others might see short term rise, but fall off- unless, this Thor ends up being the Iron Man of 2008.

@Jabberwookie

I would guess because collectors generally prefer the original characters that have been established for 20, 30, 40 years opposed to different versions of that character in a different universe.

You have to be right, but it's just funny that while the originals are obviously the main characters, much of the personalities and looks came from the Ultimate Universe.

Ah, well. I'll hold onto them regardless.

No, most collectors have no interest in these newfangled incarnations of beloved characters. In other words, why indulge in the facsimile when the original is readily available?

These were just sitting around in the back issue boxes at my LCS today. I wasn’t interested in them enough to order them but I figured if they were there what the heck? Good prices, no shipping, and keeping the money in town. It was a pretty good comic buying day.

JIM84 will have the long term staying power. Silver age, black cover, first appearance, can't go wrong.
