Bio:
Nothing much about Jane's past before meeting Thor is known. At first she was a nurse for Donald Blake, eventually developing feelings for him, not knowing that Blake and Thor were one and the same. The love triangle went on for a while, until Thor revealed his secret identity to Jane, and in return even took her to Asgard with him. There, Jane was briefly granted immortality and the power of Gods until Thor's angry father, Odin, took it away from her. Jane and Thor eventually broke up, and she later met her current husband Dr. Keith Kincaid and had a son with him. For a time, Odin even wiped the memories Jane had of Thor away from her, but she eventually gained them back. After that, Jane was occasionally seen assisting the Avengers when the need arose.

Jane appears again in another Thor series, her first appereances in Thor (Vol. 2) #5. A doctor herself, she is in a position of authority over several New York paramedics, which includes Jake Olsen. Unknown to her, Jake and Thor have become merged, which creates much conflict. For example; due to Donald Blake's medical knowledge, Jake disobey's Jane's orders in order to save a patient's life.

During the Civil War event, Jane took Captain America's side against the registration act, and now joins his resistance group. She now operates from SHIELD safe-house number 23. Though only briefly seen in Civil War #2, Marvel Editor Tom Brevoort stated in an interview on Newsarama that it was really her welcoming the Young Avengers at the new headquarters.

Has cancer in Thor: God of Thunder #12.

Notes:
Early on, Blake's nurse was known briefly as Jane Nelson, before the name changed to Foster. In What If? (1976) #10, she became a female version of Thor, named Thordis.

First Appearance: Journey Into Mystery (1952) #84
