Thor joined the “baby dad” after adopting the daughter of the villain Gorr the God Butcher in the blockbuster Love and Thunder, and it is possible that this girl will become one of the strongest characters in the Marvel universe. in future MCU projects.
As one of the rare films of the MCU with heavy emotional elements, Thor: Love and Thunder has brought an emotional ending and left a lot of emotions in the hearts of the audience. After a long journey across the universe to slaughter the gods, the villain Gorr the God Butcher suddenly decided to use the wish granted by Eternity to revive his little daughter, and gave it to Thor. care in New Asgard.
Love, named after Korg’s story, shares similarities with many important characters in the Marvel comics, including Eternity and Thor’s daughters. With Marvel Studios quietly building a younger generation of superheroes, it’s possible that Love will be an extremely important piece of the MCU’s future picture. And the original comic will help us have interesting ideas about the role this character will play in upcoming projects.
Love’s story in the MCU will likely be inspired by a cosmic entity with the same name as her. Mistress Love, or Love for short, first debuted in The Defenders #107 story chapter as the embodiment of love in the Marvel universe. She often appears with several other invisible, abstract entities, such as Eternity in The Infinity Gauntlet #3.
Mistress Love is able to control love in all living beings, although her abilities are quite limited when facing Thanos in his highest form. Rated as one of Marvel’s most powerful cosmic entities, Mistress Love’s power does not reach the multiverse level of Eternity. In addition, although often appearing in female form, this character does not have a specific shape or gender. Mistress Love will manifest in different ways depending on each case and object.
Torunn Thorsdottir (Earth-TRN591)
Since Love has become Thor’s adopted son on the big screen, it wouldn’t be surprising if Marvel Studios decided to build this character on the children of the thunder god in the comics, including Torunn. Thorsdottir.
Torunn is a member of the Earth-TRN591 universe’s Next Avengers, first appearing in Generations: Iron Man & Ironheart #1 (2017). Although not exploited too deeply in terms of personality or strength, Torunn seems to be heavily influenced by his father in the ideal of eradicating violence and protecting innocent individuals.
In addition, as Thor’s daughter, Torunn also possesses Asgardian supernatural characteristics, such as super strength, super strength and a life span many times longer than that of Earthlings. The armor she often wears can’t help but remind others of the Destroyer, one of the most powerful villains Thor has ever faced. In addition, Torunn’s favorite weapon is a giant sword, as a way to pay tribute to his mother – Lady Sif (according to the animated movie Avengers: Heroes of Tomorrow released in 2008).
Torunn Thorsdottir (Earth-10943)
Another version of Torunn Thorsdóttir also appeared in the Avengers #1 (Vol.4) story chapter, released in 2010. This version bears many similarities with Torunn of the Earth-TRN591 universe, from the costumes to the Earth-TRN591 universe. the relationship with the Next Avengers – including the “warm girls” of veteran Avengers members like Captain America, Black Panther, Giant-Man or The Wasp. This version of Torunn comes from a divergent reality, formed after the Avengers of Earth-616 traveled in time to the future to defeat Ultron.
Torunn plays an important role in many Marvel comics and animated series. In her first appearance, she and her teammates confronted Immortus, one of the strongest variants of Kang the Conqueror – the next big villain that Marvel Studios will exploit in the near future. That’s probably why many fans believe Love will be largely inspired by this character in the future of the MCU.
Love could also follow more modern storylines, inspired by newer characters in the Marvel universe, such as Brigid Thorsdottir. Brigid first appeared in Captain Marvel chapter #23, when Carol Danvers time traveled to the year 2051.
This character has collaborated with a number of superheroes who survived a cataclysmic event that claimed her father’s life and wiped out nearly all life on Earth. Besides, because he could not use the magic hammer Mjolnir, Brigid decided to become a blacksmith to create divine weapons for other superheroes.
In addition, Brigid also participated in the battle against Ove, the son of Namor the Sub-Mariner (who will appear in the blockbuster Black Panther: Wakanda Forever) and Amora the Enchantress of Asgard, and is also one of them. The most powerful wizards in the Marvel universe. In this battle, Brigid proved his worth, lifting the hammer Mjolnir and thereby becoming the next Thor. This is also the scenario that many fans have drawn for Love in the MCU after the thunder god “retired”.
Thena Thorsdóttir is an important character of the MC2 universe (which is the reality of 20 years later), and is also a key member of the Avengers squad, including Spider-Girl. The story of Thena’s origins also bears many similarities with Love, because she is also one of the few survivors after Galactus destroyed her home town of Asgard.
Initially, Thena was originally an enemy of the Avengers because of unnecessary misunderstandings. But then, she became an ally of this detachment, similar to her father. She once used a powerful divine weapon created by Jarvis, after her magic hammer was destroyed in battle with J2, son of Juggernaut.
In Thor: Love and Thunder, Eternity is the cosmic entity that directly granted Gorr the God Butcher’s wish and brought Love back from the dead. In that scene, if we pay close attention, we can see the star motifs, the universe closed Love’s silhouette when reflected in the water, just like Eternity. This makes many fans believe that she is actually Eternity in a new form.
In addition, in the original comics, Eternity once split itself into fragments, representing different aspects of itself, and merged into many other entities in the multiverse. Sometimes Eternity also blends into the world in human form and uses the alias Adam Quadmon.
Based on the aforementioned cosmic pattern, if not Eternity, Love could completely become (or be related) to Singularity. This mighty entity first appeared in the story chapter A-Force #1 as a living quantum singularity that fell from the sky into Battleworld. Singularity’s ghostly appearance has many similarities with Eternity and Love in the MCU.
Singularity rose from the Secret Wars event (version released in 2015), and is one of the most important events of Marvel comics to date. Secret Wars has been confirmed as the “next Endgame” of the MCU and will be the “closer” movie for phase 6 as well as the Multiverse Saga of this cinematic universe.
Infinity is Eternity’s sister, and the embodiment of space, of everything in the Marvel universe. That is why this entity can easily manipulate, manipulate space, time, matter and energy. Infinity first appeared in the Quasar story chapter #24 and can completely be the inspiration for Marvel Studios to exploit Love in the future.
As an entity of pure quantum energy, Quasar is able to use the Quantum Band, powerful treasures, to penetrate the Quantum Zone and Infinity. Although it has not been confirmed, Quantum Band may have a connection with the mysterious bracelet of Ms. Marvel in the MCU, suggesting that Love’s future journey will most likely involve both Kamala Khan and Carol Danvers.
