Internet Hilariously Tries To Figure Out Which Fictional Characters/Real People Could Lift Thor’s Hammer Mjolnir

Internet Tries To Figure Out Which Characters Could Lift Thor's Hammer

Marvel Studios

  • A Twitter thread asking which fictional characters could lift Thor’s hammer Mjolnir has gone viral.
  • The answers hilariously include both fictional characters and real people.
  • Names such as Batman, Steve Irwin, and Brienne of Tarth have popped up in response.

There is simply no doubt that one of the most thrilling moments in the history of the Marvel Cinematic Universe — and the history of comic book movies at large, really — was when Captain America finally lifted Thor’s hammer Mjolnir in the final battle against Thanos in Avengers: Endgame.

Finally paying off a tease from Avengers: Age of Ultron — which saw a legitimately worried God of Thunder watching Steve Rogers get Mjolnir to budge — Cap wielding the mighty Mjolnir has since become one of the truly iconic moments in recent movie history. And yes, because Avengers: Endgame is the second-highest-grossing movie of all time, it certainly deserves that distinction.

Over the holiday weekend, the question of who’s worthy to lift Mjollnir resurfaced, as a Twitter thread asking the question went viral, prompting hilarious responses ranging from Mr. Rogers (not Steve, but Fred) to Samwise the Brave to Superman.

A few suggestions I’d add are Ellen Ripley from the Alien franchise, Neo from The Matrix, Yoda from Star Wars, and Harry Potter from Harry Potter.
