Jane Foster is the deuteragonist in Thor and its sequel Thor: The Dark World. She is a brilliant astronomer and cosmologist, and also Thor's partner and love interest. She is portrayed by Natalie Portman.

Jane Foster was created by Stan Lee, Jack Kirby and Larry Lieber.



Jane is a strong a determined woman, with an obstinate will and an independent spirit. She firmly believes that scientists have been invested with the mission of searching the truth and loyally follows this idealism. She possesses a deep knowledge for her study field, astrophysics, and of her peers, she single-handedly came the closest to discovering the existence of Asgard by studying the wormhole-like traces left by the use of the Bifrost Bridge.

She is also slightly quirky, and can have a feisty attitude if provoked.

The Avengers

Although she didn't appear in The Avengers herself, her picture was shown in a monitor when it was mentioned by Coulson to Thor that she is taken to safety; he states that she was sent to work at a museum in Tromsø, Norway, all expenses apparently paid.

We're from different worlds, maybe they were separate for a reason.
―Jane Foster [src]
