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.
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.
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.
Has anyone, short of the Mangog ever shown that kind of physical power?
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.
Poor Thor....in the movies, his sister breaks his weapon....in the comics his ex gf takes his weapon.
I think he can be and should be BOTH god of hammers and god of Thunder/lightning.
In Thor 3, Hela is shown wielding Mjolnir prior to Thor, and Thus prior to Odin's enchantment. Therefore, she did not need to be worthy to wield the hammer, as her bond arose vis a vis provenance.
When Thor threw Mjolnir, Hela stopped it with her will as a prior possessor of the weapon. You can see she is not physically pressing against or crushing the hammer. She is willing it to stop by her prior bond to the hammer, while Thor is willing it to strike her. The force of the two wills upon the hammer to do 2 diametrically opposed actions forces the hammer to implode upon itself.
