How Lee & Kirby's "Fantastic Four" Birthed the Marvel Universe, Part 1
This week’s top five consists of the top five coolest examples of someone else other than Thor wielding Thor’s hammer, Mjolnir, which, as we all know, “Whosoever holds this hammer, if he be worthy, shall possess the power of… Thor.” So, let us see who out there is “worthy”….
5. Wonder Woman
Wonder Woman wielding Thor’s hammer SHOULD have been a really cool moment. Sadly, though, in the midst of Marvel vs. D.C., it was just almost an afterthought.
Luckily, though, it was still a lot cooler than most OTHER people who could wield Thor’s hammer (like Dargo Ktor – the future Thor).
And to be fair, it is kind of neat to see Wonder Woman determine that she wanted to beat Storm one on one (kind of dumb, since she lost, but kind of neat as well!).
Now SUPERMAN using Thor’s hammer was a lot cooler because, while he only wielded it for a short time, George Perez was drawing it, and Kurt Busiek wrote a really cool scene for it (Thor’s hammer AND Cap’s shield?!? Oh baby!).
Still, since he only wielded it for, like, a minute, it didn’t count as much as the other folks ahead.
