People are not supposed to deflect Mjolnir off its course. As strange as it sounds, I believe (apart for Kurse and Thor himself) that only WW can do it, for some sort of entitlement or magic. Maybe Aquaman, too. Kryptonians, according to my theory, would be killed or otherwise hurt attempting it.
Vision technically also could, but for different reasons.
@ourmanuel: If I recall correctly, he didn't throw it. He called for it to come to him and Kurse intercepted and batted it away. SO yeah it's likely that even Kurse wouldn't have been able to do it had Thor actually thrown it
Yeah, that’s true.
But in ragnarok thor tells Loki that nothing can get in the way of mjolnir’s return to his hand. And its been able to break though the Helicarrier’s walls and also the prison that was built in it for hulk.
MCU Guidebook/Handbook states that Mjolnir weighs 42 lbs. That's why it can be hanged on coat hangers and dropped on tables without breaking them.
Swatting away a 42 lbs object travelling at subsonic speed would be a cakewalk for anybody in the list starting from Zod.
It has an enchantment though. It’s not just a 42lbs hammer running around.
I’ll chalk up Kurse swatting it away to bad writing to be honest.
In Ragnarok Thor told Loki that nothing will stop Mjolnir from returning to his hand.
It is hard to say from this list though.
Thor telling something to Loki isn't and can't be termed as an universal truth. The notion that nothing will stop Mjolnir is true until there appears a person/entity/object that is more powerful than Mjolnir's enchantment/momentum in flight and there already has been two (or maybe more) instances/people that can/has bypassed Mjolnir's abilities.
Kurse swatted away Mjolnir without even trying and he clearly didn't use any sorcery or influence to bypass it's enchantment or momentum so it is very clear that Kurse level or higher people can swat Mjolnir away and this would mean anyone in this list above Wonder Woman can do it.
Hela also cancelled its momentum and caught it quite casually and there isn't any concrete evidence that she used sorcery or influence over it to do so.
The enchantment placed on Mjolnir was just that it can't be lifted by people who aren't worthy. Swatting it away in flight doesn't have to bypass that enchantment. It clearly seems like anyone powerful enough to cancel Mjolnir's momentum can swat it away. Neither QS nor Hulk has attempted to swat Mjolnir away. Hulk tried to lift it and he probably can swat it away or probably can't if he's not Kurse/Hela level in strength. QS isn't powerful/worthy enough to do either.
I don’t think Hela can be used as an example as she was the previous wielder of Mjolnir and was stated to be worthy by Odin.
You're deliberately making things up now. The worthiness enchantment was placed on Mjolnir in 2011 when Thor was exiled to Earth. Before that, Mjolnir was a regular Asgardian artifact, a 42 lbs mallet made of Uru that can fly and return to anyone who wields it, be it Hela or Thor. Nobody can prove or has any conclusive evidence that Hela exercised any influence over Mjolnir or used any form of Sorcery to stop it in-flight.
In fact nobody has portrayed any influence or command over Asgardian artifacts except Odin. He can call back, enchant, empower or depower any Asgardian artifact or being, nobody else can. Merely wielding an Asgardian weapon doesn't grant anyone any influence over it. Thor, Loki and Hela, all three have wielded Gungnir but nobody has any influence over it like Odin. Thor wielded Mjolnir all his life and the hammer obeyed his commands but Odin could override that any time he wanted. Odin could send Mjolnir to a dying Thor on Earth while being in Odinsleep on Asgard.
Hela is no goddess in any sense. Her goddess of death moniker is fake. She didn't and couldn't control any aspect of life or death. She had to use the Eternal Flame to bring back dead Asgardians. The only thing she has influence on is the swords she conjures. She might as well be called the goddess of swords.
@mr_shazam0920: Don't waste your time with DammeFavour.
Btw, Hela was never worthy of Mjolnir, the enchantment was placed on Mjolnir when Thor was sent to Earth, prior to that it was just a magical hammer that you didn't need to be worthy to lift.
The reason I said that was from the conversation Thor and Hela had right before the throne room fight. “He told you you were worthy, he said the same thing to me”.
But honestly it makes sense, how the enchantment was only placed in 2011.
Yes I know exactly what the enchantment is.
If it was just a 42lbs hammer, why was Hulk completely launched backwards? You have yet to acknowledge this. You’re saying all you have to do is deflect it. Then why did Hulk fail to stop its momentum when it was thrown at subsonic speed by Thor ?
@mr_shazam0920: you obviously do not. The enchantment is for whoever holds it. Watch the hulk scene again, Thor threw the hammer into hulk's hand and he closed it around the hammer, which is why the enchantment took hold. Look at the angle mjolnir changed to in both events. So yeah hulk was launched because the hammer suddenly became heavy, immediately hulk got his hand around it, it stopped being 42 lbs.
You claim you know what the enchantment is. Did kurse fulfill the requirement for the enchantment to take hold? Whosoever holds this hammer, if he be worthy, shall possess the power of Thor. Did kurse attempt to 'hold' the hammer?
Before you ask how I know the hammer is normally 42 lbs, it's because it can be placed on a table without damaging it and it can be put on a cloak hanger
