I wholeheartedly agree. She's just a silly character altogether, at least when we're talking live action.
The MOS-universe does not need a female THOR. It would just bring the whole thing down credibility-wise.
An amazon warrior princess with ideals of love, peace, and sexual equality? Yep, that's what we need. Not that there's anything wring with those ideals, but come on...

The only way to do her is like you suggest, to completely reimagine the character, but then it wouldnt be WW anymore and then what's the point of including her.

But in order of avoiding JL turning into a sausage-fest you'd need a female character. I just dont know (or care) who it'd be.
