Do all of Superman's strength feats make it possible for him to be able to pick up Thor's hammer regardless if he's worthy or not.

#2 Posted by 616Vulture (1470 posts) - - Show Bio

No

Strength literally does not matter at all with picking up that hammer. Unless he is worthy it is impossible for him to pick it up.

Nope

@616vulture: Hasn't Hulk been able to do it in the comics?

#5 Edited by 616Vulture (1470 posts) - - Show Bio

@kaijukinggojira: The first scan Hulk did not lift it he just made Thor hit himself with it, The reason rulk could lift it was no gravity so technically he did not lift it and same with Iron man who even explained it was zero gravity and on Earth only Thor could.

So no hulk did not. If anyone who wasn't worthy did hold it, it was either pis, loeb, or Thor took of the spell that made only worthy ones lift it.

@616vulture: I've seen it happen in a few animated things and it just seemed like it'd be possible.But since they're non canon I guess it'd be an unreasonable argument. Obviously Supes could lift it with pure nobility.

@kaijukinggojira: I could imagine Superman being worthy enough to pick it up. Perhaps even more worthy than Thor himself.

#13 Edited by Alak (928 posts) - - Show Bio

If Superman successfully picks up mjolnir, it's because of his character and not his physical strength (pretty much what everyone else said).

@cyclonus_the_warrior: wasn't mjolnir made for Thor? that's like zeus being better quipped with Poseidon's trident

Yes

Superman just lifts the hammer and whatever is beneath it.

Yes

Superman just lifts the hammer and whatever is beneath it.

This. Each action has an equal and opposite reaction. Meaning, if the hammer was resting on Earth and Superman was attempting to deadlift it, the Earth has to have an equal return force. Superman can move Earth and everything beneath the hammer, I'd call that a success.

@monsterstomp: wait so the hammer will still be stuck on the ground and at the same time, the earth is moving along with it?!?!? howlleeeee doodoo

@baberaham_lincoln: That or the hammer would rip up any rubble or debris. I'll just go with the moving Earth thing.

#23 Edited by Kairan1979 (16860 posts) - - Show Bio

No. Unless it's an alternate version of Superman who is willing to kill. The hammer was made for a warrior, not for a peacemaker with no-killing rule.

I think I just found a loophole with that enchantment which is how people can technically lift it in space.

Edit: "Whosoever holds this hammer, if he be worthy, shall possess the power of Thor."

This statement can be interpreted as such: You can hold the hammer but only by being worthy can you actually use the powers and abilities that it bestows.

If I'm talking nonsense then just tell me.

The hammer is magically imbued to not allow anyone "unworthy" to lift it. You have to have enough strength to surpass the magic that binds it, which Superman definitely does not have.

Except that we're dealing with divine, mystic forces that don't have to answer to what we would consider conventional physics. It's "magic."

Pfft. The Earth still spins if the hammer is on the ground, why couldn't Superman just move Earth (moving the hammer)?

Or Superman could fly whatever the hammer is attached on to the sun watch it burn with the hammer still in his hand a pull off a Leob Rulk lol.

If the question is 'Could Superman lift a hammer-sized chunk of collapsed star?', then yes.

#36 Posted by Jaymundo (174 posts) - - Show Bio


In short... no! It's quite clear that in the current status nobody other than Thor can lift the hammer no matter how strong they are or the circumstances.

Say the holder be worthy to hold it, like it says shall have the powers of Thor. Does that mean if cap held it because es worthy right? A swell guy. Can he use thors powers like weather manipulation anti matter blast etc? Minus the traits Thor has an asgardian but the actual powers moljnir gives Thor?

That is technically accurate. Ultimate Thor's hammer doesn't have an enchantment allowing anyone to lift it.

But I get your original point.

If the effect of the Hammer being unmovable is based in magic why would gravity have anything to do with it. Shouldn't it be where ever the Hammer is in space, anywhere , it should remain until one deemed worthy takes it?

Nope even with unlimited strength you would never be able to even budge Mjolnir if ya aint worthy of it.

I think Superman is worthy enough to lift Mjolnir, but not through strength.

#48 Edited by WIshIWasSuperman (1351 posts) - - Show Bio

@attatje: @zombiemowlcher: actually it was perfectly logical, as Thor GAVE him the hammer to use, thus keeping it within the enchantments rules. This isn't an isolated case where Thor has allowed another hero to use the hammer when normally they wouldn't be able to.

I have no clue about the crossovers, but Supes did kill Zod in MoS! Why wouldn't he be worthy?
