Avengers: Endgame raised a lot of interesting questions about the Marvel Cinematic Universe. Was Steve Rogers Always Peggy Carter's Husband? What happened to the people who were snatched away while flying? Could Thanos have lifted Thor's hammer ?? The latter is especially tempting considering how impressive the Mad Titan was even without the added benefit of Mjolnir. Would Thanos have been able to lift Thor's hammer if he had tried, or would he have embarrassed himself?

Mjolnir is no ordinary hammer. It is made from an almost unbreakable alien metal called Urdu and has a magical declaration that says, 'Whoever holds this hammer, when worthy, will have the power of Thor.' Because of this inscription, hardly anyone in the MCU has been able to pick up the hammer. Hulk, a.k.a. the strongest avenger, was unable to take it with all his might The Avengers. in the Avangers: Age of UltronPretty much every Avenger paused picking it up, but only Captain America was able to move it that easily. Then who could lift Mjolnir into the MCU besides Thor?




Thor's father Odin, who gave Thor the hammer in the first place, naturally showed the ability to use it. So did Odin's firstborn child and Thor's sister Hela. Hela was the original owner of the hammer before her exile, and she had it before Odin imbued it with the Thor-specific enchantment. However, it showed that even after the inscription was added, she was still able to use it to capture it THOR: Ragnarok and easily smashed with their strength. We'd say that makes them worthy.

Two avengers were also classified as worthy by the hammer: the Android Vision could pick it up without any problems Avangers: Age of Ultron shortly after its creation it proved itself to Thor and the other Avengers. And Captain America, having moved it in his first attempt just years earlier, has proven himself and exercised it with authority during the battle againstThanos in Avengers: Endgame.

In the comics, far more characters have had the privilege of wearing Mjolnir. Cap did this more than once, as did Odin. Both Hulk and Loki managed to lift it once. Jane Foster, who is slated to be Mighty Thor in the upcoming movie Thor: love and thunder, has already spent years as the god of thunder in the comics using the hammer. Various X-Men, including Professor X and Magneto, have raised Mjolnir in the comics, and even DC Comics' heroes Superman and Wonder Woman have done so in crossover stories.



But perhaps the most memorable user of Mjolnir from the comics is the alien Beta Ray Bill. He was the first character other than Thor (and outside of Marvel's Norse pantheon) to wield the hammer in the comics after defeating Thor after a misunderstanding in battle. Thor soon got his hammer back, but Beta Ray Bill was considered so worthy of Odin that the Allfather made him his own mystic Hammer called Stormbreaker - a name that should sound familiar to fans of the MCU.

In the MCU, Stormbreaker is the ax that Thor acquires Avengers: Infinity War with the express intention of killing Thanos. Towards the end of the film, he is almost successful and buries the weapon in Thanos' chest just before the mad titan's snapshot. And while Stormbreaker at least equals Mjolnir in power, it lacks the magical inscription of the original hammer. As a result, any old Joe Schmo Stormbreaker can pick up and use. And that's exactly what Thanos does EndgameHe caught the weapon in midair and then pressed it into Thor's chest, just as Thor had done him Infinity war. But just because Thanos could use Stormbreaker doesn't automatically mean he can lift Mjolnir.

Mjolnir's definition of worthiness is notoriously loosely defined, but it is generally accepted that it requires more than sheer strength. After all, the Hulk is one of the strongest characters in the MCU, and he can't lift him. Instead, it is believed that the hammer's worth has more to do with a person's intentions. That explains why both the selfless and heroic cap and the logical and well-meaning vision could lift the hammer. Hela has bad intentions, of course, but she is also an Asgarde who was the original owner of the hammer. Hence, it is possible that she was a grandfather to be able to use it. Thanos is extremely powerful, but a villain. He can think His actions to wipe out half the universe are justified, but we bet the hammer would see through his flawed logic. He's also never used Mjolnir in the comics, which really works against him here, considering there are plenty of other characters out there.



However, Thanos has a trick up its sleeve that other characters don't and that is the Infinity Gauntlet. With the power of the Infinity Stones, Thanos can do practically anything. He can reverse the time using the time stone, cover long distances with the space stone and change reality itself with the reality stone. With the glove, it stands to reason that Thanos could simply change reality to allow himself to take in Mjolnir if he felt like it, inscriptions are doomed. But then again, with a weapon as powerful as the Infinity Gauntlet already in his possession, why on earth would Thanos want a hammer called doofily?
