What can the axe do & what qualities does it possess? BTW what's the name of it? Does he use it in the present?

#2 Posted by HaveAtThee (576 posts) - - Show Bio

It's called "Jarnbjorn" and after reading Uncanny Avengers #6, it apparently is dense enough to cut through Celestial Technology/Armor. It is Young Thor's main weapon in both God of Thunder and this current arc in Uncanny Avengers, though apparently in the Present Day it ends up being lodged into Baron Mordo's chest somehow.

Would be cool if Thor carried that, and Mjolnir around..

Probably will sometime in the future. He was advertised as carrying more than 1 weapon in Marvel NOW! advertisements.

On the two swords? That would be fricken awesome if Thor sent his electric current through the swords !

It would be nifty to see him use multiple weaponry.

Is Thor: God of Thunder and Uncanny Avengers the initial appearance of Jarnbjorn or is it something that has been shown before? I don't believe I had ever seen a story of him with it before.

Thor was advertised as having swords but Jarnbjorn is an axe & Mjolnir is the hammer. BTW I think Mjolnir is the 1 capable of summoning lightning.

It would indeed.

Thor: God Of Thunder is the 1st time it appeared.

@namor1987: No, thor summons the lightning himself as shown in Thor: GoT issue 2.

@namor1987: Thor's lightning manipulation does not come from Mjolnir. It's his own power.

I always thought he had to use Mjolnir to summon the lightning. So why the heck does he need Mjolnir for summoning lightning? To help direct it towards it's intended target & amplify its power?

To me Mjolnir is a biga$$ lightning rod.

it was a weapon given to him by Odin for his good deeds in Asgard. It helps Thor redirect, and amplify his power. It also allows Thor to manipulate matter, absorb, amplify attacks, fly, and more. Mjolnir does not give Thor weather manipulation.

he has virtually limitless strength what does he need another weaopn for... he already cant seem to do jck without mjolnir

Warriors use weapons. If he had none, he'd be an Asgardian version of Hercules.

@thorson: really? How come?

I don't like its name. "Jarnbjorn" sounds a little too french (no offense to anyone)

@namor1987: Yeah he did >;D

@haveatthee: Yep. @cmartin: Thor's weapons are just tools at his disposal. Not using them would be stupid.

Thor dual wielding Jarnbjorn and Mjolnir? It's a shame no one has done any artwork of this. Why doesn't Thor use it more often given what it can do?
