However, asking people to separate the Marvel character, from the mythos of the traditional Thor, son of Odin, and part of the culture of an actual region of planet Earth in the real world, is utterly stupid and unrealistic, especially because the two are in some very important ways, one. The Thor of myth and legend, is, in the Marvel universe, the same fellow.

They did say this was to be temporary didn't they?
It's not like this story line hasn't been played out before, and if the woman packing Mjolnir gains some traction in her own right as a character, they can then spin her off as something else when they redeem the real Thor.
At least they aren't killing him.
Marvel Comics editor Wil Moss also emphasized that the new Thor “is not a temporary female substitute — she is now the one and only Thor.”
