Based on the box office numbers for Avengers: Endgame, you’ve all already seen this movie but just in case, be wary of spoilers ahead! Endgame was the culmination for eleven years of storytelling and over twenty films, so you bet there was going to be some epic moments. Arguably, one of the most epic bits in the entire movie came when Thor’s hammer, Mjolnir, went flying into the open hand of Steve Rogers, who was already holding his Captain America shield. But how can Steve lift the hammer? Thor mentions in Infinity War that weapons made at Nidivelir cannot be held by mortal men as they would destroy the body and bring one to insanity. Yet Rogers is not only sane and alive but able to use the hammer effectively. In other words, the hammer deemed him Worthy of the Power of Thor, a concept that was set up in the very first Thor movie back in Phase One. This idea of Cap being “worthy” was further teased at during the early scenes of Age of Ultron and let’s be real, of all the characters in the Avengers, Rogers is certainly the noblest and most humble of the batch, fitting the criteria to lift Mjolnir effectively. Captain America lifting the hammer isn’t anything new either; this event has happened a few times in the comics and you can tell the Russo Brothers and Endgame’s writers poured over the comics to bring that moment to life. Seeing Cap lift the hammer in “Fear Itself” while yelling “Avengers Assemble” ranks as one of Roger’s coolest moments in our books.
