Wow, this just got me thinking. Maybe Thor's hammer isn't a real thing at all?

weight =/= mass

Mass has gravitational pull.
Weight is caused by gravitational pull, and in reality is of course governed by mass, but I suppose magic would all be to do with controlling forces, hence a spell could be placed on it that increased it's weight (downwards force, nothing to do with it's own gravitational forces) to match that of whatever someone "unworthy" was applying to it, so that it would never cause damage to a surface it was on when someone strong tried to pick it up, but people would still never be able to move it.

That's how I'd have done it.
It factors out all problems I can think of with these other explanations.
But oh well.

while this is true, have you accounted for the volume of the hammer? im pretty sure youd only feel a little pull on something of that size rite?

From what I hear it is actually not that heavy. Just it weighs that much due to an enchantment put on it so no one but the worthy can wield it.

Here's a list of people who have lifted it besides Thor and why they could lift it

it's not the worthy,Hulk,Iron Man,Captain America are all good people (which is what Thor needed to become to be able to hold Mjolnir) yet they werent able to hold the hammer,that probably means that you have to be something more than worthy (meaning:Thor/Odin)

captain atom actually lifted the hammer.

and you just need to be "worthy" to wield it.

beta ray bill is another one who was able to wield mjolnir.

Someone look this up for me but from what I remember both Superman and the hulk have actually used Thor's hammer on occasion, and the other heroes probably could as well if they wanted to.

superman is not part of marvel universe.


but considering it only weighs(supposedly) around 50 million tons when lifted.it would be easy for superman (who even post crisis can lift over 6 sextillion tons) to lift it...

crossovers happen
User avatar #138 to #136 - angelious (02/13/2013) [-]
yes i recall there being a crossover...i heared thor fought superman and lost.but did he lift the hammer in that fight that i do not know.thou if he tried to lift it im sure he would have succeeded.considering he is most certainly worthy and even if he isnt he has enough muscles to lift it anyway

Worthy doesn't actually have to mean good, E.G. Odin's dad, Bor, was able to wield Mjölnir, but he isn't exactly good person. Also FYI, Captain America was able to wield Mjölnir.
