Quote:Just watched the movie again...what boggles the mind is that Hela not only stopped mjolnir mid flight with one hand (soooo she is worthy?) but she was also able to apparently physically crush it.
Quote:That puts her in rare air if you put her back in the comics universe. Thor, Hulk, even Odin couldn't physically crush mjolnir with one hand like a ancient frozen beer can.
Quote:What's interesting is in the next scene she has Thor by the throat. If she can crush enchanted uru , Thors throat seems a soft target by comparison.
Quote:Has anyone, short of the Mangog ever shown that kind of physical power?
Quote:We are to assume that because she owned mjolnir in the past that the worthiness enchantment Odin put on it in the first movie is invalid and that's why she was able to hold it...or that she was so powerful she could negate Odins enchantment.
Quote:Poor Thor....in the movies, his sister breaks his weapon....in the comics his ex gf takes his weapon.
Quote:I think he can be and should be BOTH god of hammers and god of Thunder/lightning.
Thor has allowed himself to be captured to learn more about Surtur and Ragnarok. Surtur and Odin both know Hela is in ascendency, not least because Odin was banished from Asgard by Loki and somehow rendered almost powerless. This, or other reasons speed Odin's demise. Hela, as Thor's older sister is Odin's firstborn and has inherited the Odin Power. It was said she draws her power from Asgard, so for me, this the most likely explanation. In its humorous tone the film really plays down what Loki has done.
That is a very good explanation for her incredible display of power....her own considerable might plus that inherited power from Odin.
THAT would have been great in explanation in the flick for here complete domination of any and everyone, as well as explaining why Odin would send Valkyrie on what would have been a suicide mission to try and kill her when she is displaying that type of might.
....and that Loki was the unwitting "reason" for the death of Odin and her increased might and the resultant loss of so many Asgardian lives would have given more weight to his possible change of heart at the end of the flick and going forward. (To some degree at least, can't have the cheetah FULLY change his spots)
