Thor decided to leave his hammer Mjolnir with Captain America, but Marvel Comics just showed that might have been a huge mistake!
Warning! Spoilers for Thor #17 by Marvel Comics below!
After trusting Captain America with his hammer Mjolnir, Thor just learned that his iconic weapon has been stolen. Previously, Thor’s connection to Mjolnir has been weakening, likely due to the hero becoming the King of Asgard, weakening his enchantment. In response to not being able to control his hammer like he once did, Thor decided to leave it with Captain America until he could figure out what was wrong with it. Unfortunately, it turns out that was a bad idea.
Thor’s hammer has been on the fritz, as the enchantment is supposed to be for a worthy warrior. With Thor becoming the King of Asgard, his hammer has gotten heavier and heavier while getting lighter for everyone else. Not only did Mjolnir attack Iron Man unprompted, but even his brother Loki was capable of temporarily lifting it – as was a random man in Oklahoma. To stop Mjolnir from attacking his teammates, Thor decided to leave it with Captain America until he could figure out what was truly wrong.
