Ever since Odin enchanted Mjolnir, there is a running gag on who can lift the hammer and who can not. Most of the Avengers of the Infinity Saga even tried to lift the hammer but nobody could. That was until Vision (Age Of Ultron) and Steve Rogers (Avengers: Endgame) finally did. Now as MCU enters its Phase 4, new characters will be introduced and the journey of some old characters will end. But we wanna ask – Which of the Avengers can lift Mjolnir?
Black Widow and Shang-Chi and The Legend Of The Ten Rings and 4 Disney+ shows have already come out. All these projects have introduced many new characters which are full of potential. With Chris Hemsworth’s Thor returning for one last movie, this is the best time to talk about who is worthy and who isn’t. The set photos have revealed that Mjolnir is going to return to the MCU and will be passed on to Jane Foster. But who, other than Jane, will be seen with the iconic Hammer?
Phase 4 – Which Of The Avengers Can Lift Mjolnir?
1. DOCTOR STRANGE – No!
2. SHANG-CHI – No!
The latest MCU movie introduced the world to their first Asian superhero, Shang-Chi. He is known for being the greatest Master of Kung-Fu and a fearless warrior. The movie featured him struggling with his issues as he tries to deem himself worthy of inheriting the Ten Rings from his father. the Rings may be strong but they do not have the powers of a God. Mjolnir is a much complex weapon and requires the greatest of wills. If the movie has shown us anything, it is that Shang-Chi was a weak-willed character. yet, the end of the movie stated otherwise. Still, he is a long way from wielding the strongest weapon in the MCU.
3. THOR – Yes!
Like you didn’t already know it! Thor was the owner of Mjolnir for around a thousand years. His special bond with the Hammer gave him the strength to take on the strongest beings from the galaxy. And when Hela broke Mjolnir to pieces, it was like a break-up for Thor. After that, his life pretty much went downhill. However, this didn’t make him any less worthy of wielding his weapon. When he called out for the hammer while travelling to the past, the hammer came to him in an instant(almost!). As he is returning in Phase 4, we are going to see much more of him in the future.
