Thor Ragnajoke introduced one of the greatest mysteries of all time into the CBM Forums and that being how in the hell did Hela destroy Mjolnir? It has been debated to be pure strength, that Hela shouldn't logically have. And magic that Hela has shown next to none amount of sorcery. Just how powerful would one have to be to destroy this metal? Now with Endgame we finally have a clear cut answer with Scarlet Witch vs Thanos.

Sure there is no confirnation that Thanos' sword is Uru but it has to be. It's pretty much believed by all that Uru is superior to Vibranium and we see him shred Captain America's shield like it's not even there. That same sword also stalemated Stormbreaker, previous statements from officials even said that Thanos' sword would be a match for it. So of it isn't Uru, it's a comparable metal.

Scarlet Witch is a powerful telekinetic who can manipulate items in excess of thousands of tons who works on a molecular level, allowing her to damage vibranium as well. She chipped off a piece of Thanos' "uru" sword after a few hits so this gives us a basis of what is required to actually destroy Uru like Hela did.

Through scaling we can concur that it takes immense strength along with some sort of psychic manipulation, both of these women have that. Hela's power being special enchanted Obsidian manipulation that's comparable to Uru along with psychic control over them and minimum magic. So she has a link to Uru and a degree of molecular manipulation just like SW. She even crafted Skurge Uru Armor using nothing but her mind. Combining that she could squeeze Uru and destroy it's integrity much like Wanda did to Thanos' sword and when she destroyed Ultron.

It’s hard say with the Hela feat I thought the later mural showing Hela as the original weirder of Mjolnir made it more ambiguous that perhaps that’s what helps her overpower it but it’s mostly head canon of course.

The only people that have the strength to do it are Scarlet Witch, And Hela

You have to be City Level is my guess, Thanos sword is likely made of Uru, and the sword and Thanos destroyed Cap's shield.

I've seen calcs that put destroying Mjolnir around country lvl, maybe a little higher but those usually assumed that Mjolnir was made from neutron star material iirc which I don't think is the case.

If Uru(Mljonir) can withstand Thor busting Sokovia, than maybe country level.

It's inconsistent and there no way to tell.

Uru no sold a city busting in its face. If you look at the thing most famous for destroying Uru, a neutron star, and you look at the Snap, the biggest energy wave in the universe, you can see how it is consistent. Hela crushing Mjolnir is either inconsistent or makes her a lot stronger than she has any right to be.

I always chalked down Hela being able to destroy Mjolnir to be her ability to manipulate weapons.

@batman242:

I think so, too. Or maybe because she wielded it before as well has something to do with it.

Wielding it before could be why she was able to hold it, but wouldn't help in her being able to crush it.

Maybe it is pure strength she used, but her other feats of strength don't really justify that imo.

@batman242:

The MCU just really doesn’t care about consistency of power levels. They had to do something dramatic to show off the new big bad, so it was like “dude have her crush Mjolnir” lol. Her other feats of strength aren’t really close to that besides easily overpowering Thor.

That's the thing, the way she was easily overpowering Thor wouldn't justify it either. I was expecting her to pick him up with one hand and toss him out of the palace from the throne room. That didn't happen, she just flipped him, which is not that great. Maybe you're right and I'm looking for too much consistency.

Yeah man I’ve accepted it. The MCU is not like the WODC. They portray their characters as more relatable whereas Dc portrays them as more idolized versions.

@mr_shazam0920: Bro, what if the scene with Mjolnir being lifted Hela was the one lifting it to save her brother?

I'll say it again, we don't know if Thanos' sword is Uru. There's clearly a bunch of other alien metals that are unknown/unnamed but have been used and are clearly superior to vibranium.
