Thor’s Hammer Gives the God of Thunder a Hilarious Problem

Thor’s hammer, Mjolnir, is extremely powerful and can only be lifted by the worthy. That is, almost no one other than the God of Thunder can carry it in the Marvel universe.

In the comics, an issue of Thor: God of Thunder showed the problem this can cause. In issue #12, the God of Thunder went to a prison to bring a rare fruit to a prisoner, who wanted it for his last meal – the inmate was sentenced to death.

When trying to enter the prison, Mjolnir does not go through the metal detector. Thor still wants to go in – but a guard won’t let him, asking the Avengers character to leave the weapon with them.

The other security guard argues with his colleague, stating that “nobody can hold Mjolnir”. It’s hilarious to see Thor, one of the Avengers’ most powerful heroes, trying to get into the prison this way.

At the very least, Marvel shows the character has matured at this point, perhaps taking some cues from Captain America.

Chris Hemsworth returns to play the God of Thunder in Thor’s fourth solo film (Thor: Love and Thunder), the ninth time he’s played the character in the MCU.

He starred in all four Thor movies, all four Avengers movies, and he appeared briefly in a Doctor Strange post-credits scene.

Chris Hemsworth won’t be the only familiar face to appear in Thor: Love and Thunder when it arrives in 2022. Tessa Thompson will once again take on the role of Valkyrie, while Natalie Portman finally reprises her role as Jane Foster from the first two Thor movies, and Jaimie Alexander returns as Lady Sif.
