Film Theory: Is Thanos Worthy of Thor's Hammer? (Avengers Endgame)

    In Marvel's Avengers Endgame we learned that Captain America is worthy of Thor's hammer, Mjolnir. That is a BIG revelation and it made me wonder - who else is worthy? The scene in Age of Ultron made it seem like no one else was worthy but I believe that over the course of the last few film, that answer is no longer correct. Who is worthy? Time to find out!

                Thanos is not worthy but he is a Titan so mjolnir can be lifted by him

                          Younger Thanos was not worthy because it became personal.

                                the hulk may not be worthy, but i think that banner is, he may not lift it in age of ultron, but i think that's because he didn't really try, he was too scared to exert any force in case he turned into the hulk and attacked, he is clearly self sacrificing, even attempting suicide because he's scared of what the hulk might do, he often goes to extraordinary lengths to stay as banner out of concern for those around him, i think he's definitely worthy

                                                        What about Odin he never lifted the hammer or said he’s worthy so we don’t know if he’s worthy and if thanos is worthy

Likely because he was ashamed of it. He no longer approved of the actions he took in the past, and by extension, wouldn't approve of Thanos' actions.

                                                                    • iamamessiknow Kiwipedia

                                                                      • Kiriel Stoneborn

I don't think the most recent version of Odin would find thanos worthy either. But you're certainly right about the dealbreaker thing, if it weren't for that I think he would be worthy

                                                                        Edit: also the reason he lifts stormbreaker is cause I don't think it had the same "only the worthy may wield it" type enchantment or magic on it, last I checked nothing in the movie had suggested it

                                                                        • ArchtansterPG

                                                                          Well, he had the power of the Infinity Stones, so I don't think he'd be that interested TBH.

                                                                            • Michael Hunsinger
