In the original Norse myths, Thor disguises himself as a woman, specifically a bride, in order to sneak into the giants’ fortress.
Still more radically, in order to lure a male horse away from its owner, Loki transforms himself into a female horse in heat, allows himself to be impregnated, and subsequently gives birth to a magical horse.
In the Nibelungenlied, Brünnhilde is physically stronger than any man, and can be defeated only by magical trickery.
Just a reminder, for those complaining that Marvel is ruining the macho purity of Norse mythology.
