How Captain America Was Able To Use Thor's Hammer In Avengers: Endgame

  • Published on May 9, 2019
  • 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.

    So Iron Man could’ve held the hammer because he sacrificed himself during endgame when he snapped? Except he died 😔

    Really you had to make a video for such an obvious answer captain America has always been worthy he didn’t lift the hammer in age of ultron because he would have embarrassed Thor and cap is a good friend

    Guys the real reason is because u can’t be slightly worthy ur either worthy or not worthy and cap was worthy he just didn’t want to take Thor’s place it says that in the movie and then when he had to he took it in endgame that’s why Thor said he knew it and this isn’t about the vid but I love u 3000 is a water egg it’s all marvel movie with a around 3000 minutes

    He should've had a patriotic Thor uniform. When Beta Ray Bill took the hammer Stormbringer in the comics, he became Beta Ray THOR. What would Captain Thor look like???

    Im at about 2 mins in the vid and you cant be "almost worthy", you either worthy or not. Even pre-serum steve rogers was worthy. The russos even confirmed that cap has always been worthy.

    You think too much brother.

    He was worthy all along, and hammer knew, only that in Age of Ultron, he was trying to lift for amusement and competition, not for a purpose.
    Vision lifted it as he was clear that he has to go into war to save humanity, and he has pure of mind.
    In any other case where cap would have wanted the hammer to use for good purpose he would have lifted.

    Go sleep, and dont think too much, you will get high BP

    The moment in Endgame when Captain America lifted mjolnir brought me close to tears . I loved that moment, and the way he wielded it .

    • Leslie Scott
      Leslie Scott 3 days ago

      @Dolf Dervish I think you meant Thor, not Thanos wielding both weapons . To answer your question, it was also great seeing Thor with both storm breaker, and nia mjolnir . A funny scene during that battle was when Captain America had Storm breaker at one point, and Thor has Mjolnir, and says to Cap . Hey, you have the little one . That movie had so many great scene's .

    • Dolf Dervish

      So, how did it make you feel when Thanos wielded both Mjolnir's (aka Mjolnir & Stormbreaker)..?

    On a second thought, cap's powers came from a drug, serum or that blue liquid whatever but for me it's still a drug. Anyways, I didnt know that this drug can be this powerful lol😂

    I can understand cap. Being worthy to lift the hammer but how was he able to summon lightning? Cause odin told thor in ragnarok the lightning don't come from the hammer he's the god of thunder not the god of hammers so the hammer itself don't control the power of lightning it's thor himself that summons lightning. I think the producers reached a little bit with that.

    easy explanation: Cap was worthy like thor who said you have to be worthy that's how cap lifted both mjonir and stormbreaker

    see i didn't waste 10 minutes about how cap lifted both weapons

  • Benzy Benzy

    That was a great movie I think Caption America is wearty of lifting the Hummer but if a new Avengers movie is realeased I think his mind would cramble and he would go up against the Avengers and Thor.

  • Jesse van de bovenkamp

    My theory, they went back in time and got the hammer before Odin Made iT only worthy, so the hammer came from a time where Anyone could lift it.

    There is a theory that Cap was worthy all along but was not 100% worthy in Age of Ultron because he knew how Tony's parents died. Once Steve told Tony that he knew Bucky killed his parents he became completely worthy.

    Has anybody else noticed this or is it just me?.. when captain America wields mjolnir he is taken aback by it and his arm is pushed by the momentum each time whereas thors arm always remains completely stiff when summoning mjolnir.. this also applies to stormbreaker
    I wonder if this was done for a reason or the way cap caught it was simply just for dramatic effect. Any thoughts?

    In Age of Ultron Cap was still hiding the fact that Bucky killed Tonys parents for the sole reason of their friendship, that deemed him unworthy until he opened up in civil war, also during the time travel event cap and Tony decided to go to the 1960's despite knowing they cant go back, but if thats the case shouldnt Tony be able to lift Thors hammer as well? No because Tony was still able to get consumed with anger like he did in civil war, Cap however did not and he was willing to be stuck in the 1960 where he have to hide the fact that he is another Steve Rogers, and by the look of Caps face when he saw Peggy at the office, i doubt he was thinking of her when they decide to go, which boost the fact that he was fully selfless, he puts others before himself and though he went back to see Peggy at the end of the movie Cap knows that the Avengers dont need a hero like him all that much, though he is a great leader he know others could be just as great which is why he passed down the title of Captain America to Sam

    No but seriously how does he have lightingpowers if the hammer was only used to control Thor’s powers. Anyone care to explain what oden actually said in ragnorok?

      I think Odin said that it doesn't 'control' his powers per se, it helps him _channel_ the power of thunder and lightning. It's like running shoes - you don't need them to run but it helps you run better and faster.
