HEY GUYS LOOK AT WHAT I FOUND!
OKAY so I know everybody pokes fun at this scene because haha Sam has long hair like Thor lol
BUT. According to Marvel (and real Norse) lore, Mjolnir is VERY picky about who can or can not wield it.
There are NO specific rules for who is allowed to wield it. The only description we are given is that Mjolnir is a SENTIENT ENTITY WHO IS CONSCIOUS ABOUT WHO IT WANTS TO BE USED BY.
LETS LOOK AT WHO CAN NOT PICK IT UP
BRUCE BANNER = All around good guy. Just has a “condition”. Never killed anyone (in human form)
TONY STARK = A bit of a playboy but is still a nice person, gave up his company to keep people safe
JAMES “RHODEY” ROADS = Is really just Tony’s best friend, a good guy who only wants to keep Tony safe. No homo. (maybe a lil’ homo)
NOW LETS LOOK AT WHO CAN PICK IT UP
Thor = (Obviously) He is not a perfect person. He can be arrogant, think himself above others (not much anymore but still), and has a very clear weakness when Loki is involved
Steve Rogers = There is no “almost worthy”. Steve CAN lift the hammer, he just didn’t want to embarrass Thor about his “I get to rule Asgard now” thing. He HAS killed people in the past. Suffers from PTSD
Gamora = SHE HAS KILLED HUNDREDS OF PEOPLE. SHE WAS RAISED TO KILL AT A YOUNG AGE. AND SHE IS A COLD WARRIOR. YET SHE CAN STILL LIFT IT
SO WHAT DOES THIS MEAN FOR SAM!?
Well first look at the asshole who bought Mjolnir at that supernatural auction house. We see him cradling Mjolnir as he walks away. I think that the only reason he can hold it is because he’s a demon and is probably using some demon-witchy magic to lift it.
BUT SAM IS… LETS SAY 92.5% HUMAN AND HAS NO LIFTING MAGIC
MJOLNIR, AFTER SEEING THIS GUY WHO HAS KILLED MANY PEOPLE AND HAS
LOST HIS FAITH, BROTHER, FATHER, MOTHER, GIRLFRIEND, BEST FRIEND, ANGEL, LIFE, SOUL, HUMANITY, SHOE, FREEDOM, BROTHER AGAIN, LIFE AGAIN, AND WILL TO LIVE
THINKS THAT DEEP DOWN, SAM IS A GREAT FUCKING PERSON WHO IS HELLA WORTHY
SAM IS STILL A GOOD PERSON IN MJOLNIR’S EYES
THANK YOU AND GOODNIGHT.
