No one can wield Mjolnir unless they are worthy. In the Marvel Cinematic Universe, Thor, Captain America, Vision, and Jane Foster are the only ones capable of lifting Thor’s hammer. Bonus points to fan-favorite Groot for lifting Stormbreaker, but it (arguably) doesn’t have the same worthiness enchantment that was placed upon Mjolnir.

Do you think you could wield Mjolnir? If yes, you’re probably too arrogant. If not, we hope you have a nice satisfaction of being correct. We would argue that there’s no actual historical figure that would be worthy, even the ones we’ve created into myths so we asked Cracked readers on Facebook, “Outside of the Marvel Cinematic Universe, which fictional character do you think could lift Thor’s hammer? Why?” We were pleasantly delighted by the variety of answers to the questions, almost all of which we agreed with. Or at least the very least were entertained by the justification.
