    Remember when Thor first appeared on screen wielding the mighty Stormbreaker on the big screen? When he appeared out of the Bifrost and turned the tide of battle in Wakanda? That one moment went a long way to showcase the sheer power of Stormbreaker. However, what if we told you that the axe was more powerful than you know? What if this weapon possessed an ability so potentially devastating that it single-handedly makes Stormbreaker the most powerful weapon in the entire Marvel Cinematic Universe? Well, it does. Don’t believe us? Watch the video, and find out for yourself.

      Frost Giants will become the only ones worthy of yeilding the storm breaker bc their Sun was killed by thor just to create an ax. The fact that they have survived for many lightyears without a Sun makes them worthy enough to yield the Stormbreaker!

      I think that now with the time travel thing in play maybe it was Thor who tool the sun from the Frost Giants. It takes a long time for a star to die. Who is thor to decide?

      Tim Patterson what if Loki fools everyone and takes the throne of Asgard? U know, the frost giant yeilding the key to his real people that he was kidnapped and stolen from when his people were defeated? Thanos has Frost Giant lineage and u should see how powerful he is with his transformation on the Frosty Planet. He and Loki are unstoppable on the Frosty place and then they make the entire everything become the Cold Frosty 🗺, even Asgard and Earth. Then they r unstoppable period. Even get a few spin off movies when people realize Thor is Hannibal Lektar son! Hello Clariece

    Not having the enchantment on Stormbreaker is a pretty huge down fall IMO... Mjolnir is number 1 cuz it can never be used against Thor. As we saw in End Game, Thanos was able to intercept Stormbreaker, leading him to almost kill Thor with his own weapon. That worthyness enchantment is everything

    SQUAD012 Month ago

    The Russo's were correct. In the MCU, Mjolnir has been enchanted by Odin to have "Worthiness" as a minimum requirement. But stormbreaker, basically anyone powerful enough to handle the power of stormbreaker could hold it. We should see Mjolnir and stormbreaker as something of a sentient being, even though it's a weapon.

  • vS Gaming
    vS Gaming 2 months ago

    I do not believe that Stormbreaker can be used to its full potential by anybody as Thor has the powers of a god, whereas others, such as Captain America doesn't. Also another point i have is that Groot was only able to pick up Stormbreaker as it technically wasn't complete until he cut his arm, forming the handle.

    • BIBICUS 1
      BIBICUS 1 2 months ago

      vS Gaming even if it was complete, Groot would be able to hold it because it wasn’t enchanted by Odin. People thought that Thanos was worthy in Endgame when he held it but it just isn’t enchanted.

  • dallas yap
    dallas yap 2 months ago

    Since mjolnir requires worthiness then I think Stormbreaker would very much require it too. I think the directors said wrongly. If groot was worthy or not not really but maybe he was able to lift it because he was trying to save Thor and the weapon think that it needs to let groot to lift it in order for Thor to survive.

      Because to use Mjolnir you have to be worthy but to use the stormbreaker ypu dont need to be worthy.Thats why thanos could lift it on endgame.
