Even though Mjolnir is a one-of-a-kind MCU weapon, Marvel’s Phase 4 has five characters capable of lifting it, including Thor: Love and Thunder’s new Thor. In the beginning, only Thor could lift Mjolnir, but as the MCU grows, more and more powerful characters are able to do so. Aside from one who has yet to make an appearance, all five of these characters will be appearing in Phase 4 and will be capable of lifting Mjolnir.
Mjolnir is a mythical weapon that first emerged in the MCU in Thor. It was forged in the core of a dying star. After Thor was exiled from Asgard, Odin the Allfather enchanted Mjolnir, making it so that only those deemed worthy can wield it. Odin the Allfather passed the weapon down to his son Thor. As soon as Thor earned Mjolnir, he continued to wield it until his sister Hela destroyed it in Thor: Ragnarok, when he was no longer worthy of it. However, a Mjolnir from an alternate timeline reappeared in Avengers: Endgame, so it wasn’t completely gone.
Few in the MCU have been able to prove themselves worthy of lifting Mjolnir. Odin, Hela, Captain America, and the original Vision have all lifted Mjolnir so far, as well as a surprisingly sturdy coat hook in Thor: The Dark World.. Those are the only characters in the entire MCU to have done it before, which is a testament to how powerful some of these Phase 4 characters are.
Chris Hemsworth’s Thor is the least surprising Mjolnir-wielding character. Even though Thor currently uses his Stormbreaker ax, the return of Mjolnir in Thor: Love and Thunder will allow the God of Thunder to once again wield his enchanted hammer. Whether or not he actually does, given the arrival of the MCU’s new Thor, is still up in the air.
Love and Thunder will see Natalie Portman’s Jane Foster transform into the Mighty Thor, despite the fact that she has been a mere mortal in the MCU thus far. The marketing for the film has already confirmed that Jane can lift Mjolnir as she does in the comics once she undergoes this transformation. This soon-to-be Goddess of Thunder can’t yet wield the hammer, but she will soon be capable of lifting the reformed Mjolnir.
White Vision’s rules haven’t been explained since his debut in Wandavision. He is a clone of the original Vision, and he claims to be the true Vision after obtaining the original’s memories and claiming to be the true Vision. That’s why it can be inferred that White Vision, since it has the same mind and body as its predecessor, is still capable of lifting Mjolnir in Phase 4 of Avengers: Age of Ultron.
Not Iron Man or Thanos, but Throg the Frog of Thunder is deserving of lifting Mjolnir. Throg has already appeared in the MCU in the form of a brief cameo in Loki. If Throg exists anywhere in the multiverse, you can bet he’s using Mjolnir to stomp on flies. Throg’s Mjolnir is based on a sliver of the original hammer in the comics.
Thor: Love and Thunder introduce Russell Crowe’s Zeus, who will be able to lift Mjolnir if the rules are the same as in the comics. Zeus, unlike the others, is not deserving of lifting Mjolnir. However, he can do so anyway thanks to a loophole. Zeus’s MCU powers should override Odin’s enchantment if Mjolnir enters his domain, meaning he can hold Mjolnir. Zeus is technically the fifth Mjolnir-wielding character in Phase 4 of the MCU.
