London: Marvel's female Thor comic book is out now, and is already outselling the original male version.

Though fans seemed concerned when Marvel had re-introduced the Norse God character last October as a woman, sales figures issued by ComiChron show that the new character is beating the older, male Thor comics, the BBC reported.

The first 4 female comics sold around 20,000 copies, which was more than the last 4 Thor issues in 2012, and the figures show the female edition to be 6th in the list, reaching out for over 93,000 copies.

The premiere of the comic's premiere was also high in numbers compared to that of the original version, selling 150,862 copies in October 2014 to Thor's 65,513 in November 2012.

Thor #8 will be released in May, where the writers promise to reveal the identity of female Thor.
