Other Info
Jane Foster was a nurse hired by Dr Donald Blake to assist him in his private medical practice. Jane eventually developed feelings for him and a superhero named Thor (she did not know that both men were actually the same person). Thor's foster brother Loki, knowing his feelings toward Foster, endangered her life in order to attack him. Afterward, Thor could not bear it any longer and eventually revealed his secret identity to Jane (against Odin's orders). The two were in love and wanted to be married, but Odin forbade it because Jane was a mortal. However, Odin decided that if Jane could prove herself, then she could marry Thor. In order to do this, Jane was briefly granted immortality and the power of the Gods. However, Jane failed to pass the tests of courage set forth by Odin when because she showed fear in battle. Odin then strips Jane of her new powers and returns her to Earth with no memory of Thor, or her time in Asgard.

Back on Earth, with amnesia forced onto her by Odin, Jane begins working for Dr. Keith Kincaid. This left Jane incredibly confused as Kincaid was very similar to the forgotten Dr Blake. However, she and Kincaid eventually began a relationship together.

Years passed and one day Jane became extremely ill and was on the verge of death. Thor discovered Jane was dying in a hospital and came to her bedside--his love for her undiminished. Sif seeing that Thor was still in love with Jane, used her life essence to revive Jane and restore her memories. This left Jane and Thor able to renew their relationship with each other. However, unknown to both, Sif's spirit was actually trapped in the Runestaff dimension. But, when Jane traveled with Thor to Asgard and was presented with Sif's sword, Jane and Sif switched places and Jane was trapped in Runestaff dimension now. Thor and Sif worked together and were eventually able to rescue to Jane; however, upon her leaving the dimension, Jane once again had no memory of her relationship with Thor or Donald Blake. (To learn about Sif, just click on her highlighted name above. Note: Beware of the very revealing outfit worn by Sif on her bio page.)

Back on Earth again, Jane Foster and Dr. Keith Kincaid were soon married and eventually had a son together named Jimmy. However, Jane continued to have selective amnesia from her time with Thor and of Asgard. But, Jane and Keith's marriage began falling apart. Jane eventually left Keith because of his focus on his work rather than his family.

During the next little while, Jane was able to complete her transition to Doctor and was taken on as the resident Doctor to the Avengers because of her position of trust to the team. (To learn about the Avengers, just click on the highlighted name above.)

Later, during the superhero Civil War, Jane took Captain America's side against the Registration Act, and joined his resistance group--the Secret Avengers. (Click on the highlighted names above to learn about the event, character, and/or team.)

After hearing rumors of the return of Dr. Donald Blake and Thor, Foster was soon visited by Dr. Blake at her work in a New York City hospital. Blake was in search of Sif, but he had mistakenly thought that Sif's spirit had been reborn in Foster since their spirits had been merged once before in the past. However, Jane later discovered that Sif's spirit had actually been reborn in the body of a dying elderly cancer patient. Jane alerts Dr. Blake of her findings and Thor ends up traveling to New York and was able to restore Sif, just before the patient died.

More recently, Foster has gone to Broxton, Oklahoma--the site of the resurrected Asgard. There, Jane and Donald Blake opened up a medical practice together.

  1. Cool, I liked this movie so I am glad they are making another. Didn't Natalie Portman play Jane? I think this might be my number 2 favorite after IronMan.

  2. I think the Thor storyline is the most confusing one yet... all the memory loss and memory gain and different names... it's pretty crazy!

  3. Is there more information about her temporary powers or the test she failed?

  4. Steve-

    I have listed a couple websites at the bottom of this post if you wanna read up on Jane while she was in Asgard. However, they are pretty vague in their explanation.

    It seems that Jane Foster was temporarily given "immortality and the power of the gods" (I assume the same powers that Asgardians have--super strength, regeneration, etc.)

    As for the test, it says that she showed "fear" and called upon Thor for help when she was put up against a beast named the Unknown. This displeased Odin, and Jane was turned back to her mortal form.

    I hope this helps! :-)
